During a Nintendo Direct this April, it was announced that Senran Kagura, the curvy ninja game, was headed to the Switch. At a press conference in Tokyo, Senran Kagura creator Kenichiro Takaki showed off the game. Depending on where you work, it looks rather NSFW, especially for a game on a Nintendo system.

If you are vaguely familiar with Senran Kagura, it’s also pretty much what you’d expect! It’s no pornography per se, but the following GIFs probably aren’t images you’ll want to view at the office.

The game is called Shinobi Rifure: Senran Kagura. “Rifure” (リフレ) is short for reflexology (リフレクソロジー or “rifurekusorojii”), which is a type of massage in which pressure is applied to areas on the hands and feet.

According to Takaki, these “touch communication” mini-games are designed so players can figure out what makes the characters happy.

Celebrity Mika Kano came on stage to give the game a try, asking if the massage roller can go any higher. No, it cannot.

“This is the first time I’ve played a game like this,” Kanno said.

She is not alone.

Shinobi Refure: Senran Kagura will be released in Japan sometime this year. No word yet on an international release.
