Marvelous Europe today announces that Japan’s quirkiest rhythm/action game, SENRAN KAGURA Bon Appétit, is available to download in Europe, Australia and other PAL regions on the PlayStation®Store.
Today also sees the release of the Bon Appétit! launch trailer; a delicious bite-sized video highlighting the game’s best and craziest features.
Bon Appétit is a unique title in the SENRAN KAGURA series, as the frantic beat ‘em up gameplay found in SHINOVI VERSUS and Burst is replaced with high-tempo rhythm/action. Players’ memory, coordination and timing are all put to the test as they rhythmically press buttons in time to catchy Japanese music. Fans of the series so far will be pleased to know that, while the genre differs from previous entries, the game itself is still unmistakably SENRAN KAGURA. Bon Appétit is maintains all of the qualities and quirks expected from the Japanese franchise, with beautiful buxom babes, funny stories, character development and risqué cut scenes aplenty.
There are 10 songs to perfect and 10 super dishes to master from day one, as characters from both the Hanzo Academy and the Crimson Squad are available to participate in the first annual ‘Super Dish Gourmet Cook-Off’. Not to be outdone, the shinobi from the Gessen Academy and the Hejibo academy will be available as DLC in the weeks after launch, bringing the total to 20.
In addition to this, all character and costume DLC from SENRAN KAGURA 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.
