The 3DS is still early in its life cycle and so far we haven’t seen games for it that have been too crazy in their tone or application of the 3D capabilities of the handheld. So far we’ve seen fairly straight forward games like Ridge Racer or Super Street Fight IV that haven’t utilized the 3D capabilities in an outlandish way. But coming out this Summer in Japan is a new 3DS game that finally gives gamers, or at least a portion of them, the craziness they’ve been expecting from the 3DS: an “Enormous Breast Drama Hyper Battle.”
Now I haven’t completely lost my mind by coming up with the phrase “Enormous Breast Drama Hyper Battle” nor am I pulling a Kotaku by posting a story that has little to the world of gaming. This week in Famitsu developer Marvelous revealed Kagura, a new side-scrolling game for the 3DS that features busty ninjas. The fact that we have yet another Japanese game that features busty female ninjas probably isn’t too shocking and amongst some people it’s bound to cause immediate eye rolls. But with Kagura there’s an added catch or lucky bonus amongst those otaku’s out there as the game will involve gameplay that features destructible clothing – all of which are thrown towards the player via the 3D capabilities of the 3DS.
Famitsu sadly didn’t have much in the way of how the game will play, but it’ll be a basic side-scroller much in the same way as other action games like The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile, except it’ll include busty female ninjas in place of grim looking cleaver wielding chaps. Apparently the main selling point of Kagura is the whole destructible clothing element along with the feature of certain body parts of the female characters protruding from the screen during special battle events for maximum impact.
With the Kagura being billed as an “Enormous Breast Drama Hyper Battle” it’s not hard to know what sort of game you’ll be getting. Compared to other games that come out of Japan Kagura may not sound that outlandish but it’s still bound to have certain gamers throwing their arms up since the game is fulfilling to the stereotypes that certain Japanese games have, even more so considering that one of the costumes in the game is a bunny suit. Kagura may not be the best game to appear on the 3DS nor will its 3D enabled lady bits be the best implementation of 3D tech to appear in a game. But as cliché as Kagura may be, it’s bound to appeal to a certain portion of gamers – namely those who own a love pillow.
Kagura will be available in Japan this Summer and as expected a release in North America is unlikely.
