Here is an overview of the game, via Marvelous Europe:
The unique properties of the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers will let fans get closer than ever to some of the shinobi girls of Senran Kagura, starting with Asuka of the Hanzo National Academy. Get ‘hands on’ and help massage away her stress by employing the art of reflexology, deepening the relationship formed with her while progressing through a narrative experience with multiple endings. Pay close attention to Asuka’s feedback from the HD rumble technology in the Joy-Con controllers, as the better players react to her signals, the closer they will become to her.
Fan-favorite characters from the Senran Kagura series will also be available as DLC content – Yumi will be available at launch, followed by Murasaki, Ryona, and Yomi in the weeks following launch.
After brutal melees, rhythmic cooking contests and shockingly serious water gun fights, the Senran Kagura series is ready to take on the world of interactive storytelling for the first time and give players a chance to get to know the shinobi heroine Asuka in surprising new ways. Senran Kagura Reflexions uses the unique properties of the Joy-Con to employ the art of reflexology and massage. Melt away Asuka’s worries and stresses by hand or through a variety of useful tools, and explore deeper relationships than have ever been possible in the series before.
The Nintendo Switch system’s advanced HD rumble technology provides a more realistic sense of interaction and feeling with Asuka than ever before, helping guide players to react to her signals and give her some much-needed relaxation. Interacting with her in different ways will lead players across branching paths toward one of seven different situations and six unique endings – and that’s just for Asuka.
