So yeah, long story short. Marvellous Entertainment, the publisher and developer behind Harvest Moon, Half-Minute Hero and Bomberman Land, have announced a new game for the 3DS. And in a David-Cage-rivalling move, they have created a new genre to label it with. Actually, it's a David-Cage-beating move, because while the Heavy Rain man simply claims that a mix of old-school adventure game, Resident Evil and Dragon's Lair is a brand new, never-before-seen experience, Marvellous have come up with the world's first "Flying Enormous Breast Drama Hyper Battle".
Whether it turns out to be a genuine brand new genre or not, the fact that said phrase now exists guarantees Marvellous a special seat in Valhalla forevermore.
Above: Kagura planner Kenichiro Takaki's previous game, Ikki Tousen Xross Impact. Expect basically exactly what you see above, but in 3D
Kagura is the game in question. It's a 2D side-scrolling action game, in which good female student ninjas battle it out against the evil ninjas on contract to corrupt politicians and corporations. Not much word on the exact game mechanics yet, but what we do know is that the five girls in question will have destructible clothing and that Marvellous have taken the trouble to include their breast sizes in their character bios. Oh, and one of them is a bit notorious for sexually harrassing the other students.
Also, the 3DS' 3D will be used to have the girls' extremities pop out of the screen from time to time. Hence the "Flying out" part.
Cheers muchly, Andriasang.
