Marvelous has announced Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal.

The new game is a remake of the original Senran Kagura Burst, and it’s currently in development for PlayStation 4. A release date is set for February 22nd of next year in Japan.

As you can expect, the remake takes the side-scrolling original and makes it a full 3D action game like its sequels and spinoffs. All of the game’s visuals have been upgraded, and even the Shinobi Transformations. This also includes a remake for its predecessor, Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows, so consider this a complete package to get into Senran Kagura.

You can get the first look at gameplay below:
