Marvelous Europe today announces that Japan’s sexiest rhythm/cooking game SENRAN KAGURA Bon Appétit!, will be available for digital download on November 12th, 2014 in Europe, Australia and other PAL regions on the PlayStation®Store. SENRAN KAGURA Bon Appétit! will also be published in North America on November 11th by sister label XSEED Games.

Today also sees the release of the first in a series of three tantalising gameplay trailers created by the European publisher. This week’s video showcases a battle between two of the game’s main characters – Asuka and Homura, as well as some absurdly abstract antics from ‘Master Hanzo’. The trailer can be seen here

Unlike previous entries in the infamous SENRAN KAGURA series, Bon Appétit! veers away from its beat ‘em up roots and into truly surreal new territory. Players’ reflexes, memory and reaction speeds are all put to the test, with fast-paced rhythm/action gameplay combined with delightful and infectious Japanese music. There are 10 songs to perfect and 10 super dishes to create from day one, and plenty more to come via DLC. With all this content, it will take time and dedication to become a master baker!

Fans of the series will be pleased to know that while the genre differs from previous entries, the very essence of SENRAN KAGURA – crazy combos, sexy specials and off-beat humour – remains firmly intact. The grand prize for winning the first annual ‘Super Dish Gourmet Cook-Off’ is a magical scroll granting the owner any wish they desire. Such a prize is enticing enough to convince the girls from SHINOVI VERSUS to compete, and a gathering of dangerous and volatile shinobi in one place is bound to bring drama, chaos and a smorgasbord of scintillating surprises.

All character and costume DLC from SHINOVI VERSUS is compatible with Bon Appétit!, and all players that download the SENRAN KAGURA Bon Appétit! Gessen x Hebijo DLC pack will be treated to a free soundtrack app featuring songs from the game.

SENRAN KAGURA Bon Appétit! is developed by Meteorise, together with Marvelous Inc. of Japan for the PlayStation®Vita. Marvelous Europe will publish the title in Europe digitally on the PlayStation®Store, with an estimated retail price of €14.99. This title has been rated 16+ by PEGI in Europe, 16+ by USK in Germany and MA in Australia. XSEED Games will publish the title in North America, where it has been rated Mature by the ESRB.
