During Japan’s version of the Nintendo Direct held earlier today, a new game in the Senran Kagura series — Refure — was announced for the Switch.

For anyone not familiar with Senran Kagura, it’s a series about female ninjas, and caters mainly to dudes who like to see anime girls with big chests.

The team went to great lengths to make sure that the Switch’s rumble could be tuned to best copy the feel of… well, these are water balloons (the last game in the series is about water fights).

And here is some jiggly pudding.

Nintendo, this is all your fault. Once the platform holder shows off a new system with milking, it’s all downhill from there.


  • Good to see Nintendo not locking the Switch into the kiddy gaming market. But it’s a shame that it’s during a period in Western history where sites like Kotaku are trying to shame anyone who has any sexual nature at all.

    • Senran Kagura’s two main games (the Vita/PS4 ones were spinoffs) were on 3DS. Don’t disagree with the sentiment you’re expressing though.

    • Kotaku may fail at many things but not being sex-progressive is not one of them. There are countless articles dealing with sexuality for good or bad, NSFW artists get a spotlight from time to time, Mike Fahey demoes ero-games from time to time as well, there’s even a column dedicated to sex and relationship advice!

      The mocking/critical tone you see in articles like this one has nothing to do with being prudish, but rather with the fact that this is the most facile and juvenile kind of sexuality in games there is. Indulgent, thoughtless pablum to cynically capitalise on the horniness and curiosity of adolescent boys. Is catering to those desires inherently bad? No, but it is not good either as their classical execution contributes to form in those young minds the idea that women are merely a set of jiggling globes and welcoming holes, whose minds and wishes, if not idealistically subservient, are irrelevant.
