Today, Marvelous shared some additional details and screenshots for Shinobi Refle -Senran Kagura-, a spin-off of the Senran Kagura for the Nintendo Switch taking full advantage of the HD Rumble feature of the Joy-Cons. By the way, in case you’re wondering, the “Refle” in the title refers to reflexology.
The premise of the game is certainly… interesting, to say the least. One day, Asuka asked you to meet her after school, in an empty classroom. The atmosphere feels different than usual, and when you take her hands in yours, you can feel her heart beating in her chest. And this is how everything began…
Shinobi Refle -Senran Kagura- is a game designed to take full advantage of HD Rumble, and by (virtually) holding Asuka’s hands, you can feel her heartbeat via the Joy-Con. And just by holding her hands in yours, Asuka gradually opens up to you. That’s what the game calls ‘Standard Refle: Hand’.
There’s also ‘Standard Refle: Body’. Basically, holding hands is just the beginning: after that, you get to… err… “touch” her elsewhere, give her massages, etc. You get various reactions depending on where you touch her, but also how you do so. Finally, we have ‘Fabulous Refle’. By repeatedly touching and massaging Asuka, the mood becomes more “intense”, which leads to a Fabulous Refle.
As for massages, there’s various types:
- Royal Course (hand massage): you massage Asuka using your hands
- Luxury Course (roller massage): you massage Asuka using a roller
- Fantastic Course (brush massage): you massage Asuka using a brush
- Ultimate Course (electric massage): you massage Asuka using a vibrator (yes)
But of course, Shinobi Refle -Senran Kagura- isn’t just about
molesting massaging a pretty ninja girl, you can also have her wear various outfits. It doesn’t look like the costumes have any special effects, other than change Asuka’s look…
… ok, the game really is all about touching a pretty ninja girl as much as you want. With Mini Refle, you can have Asuka wear one of the various outfits, and then, alone in the classroom, you can go and touch, rub, stroke her to your heart’s content. You can even drop water on her, if you want to. If you meet certain conditions, you can even get access to special options.
Here’s the latest set of screenshots for the game:
