Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal is a remake of the original Senran Kagura: Burst for Nintendo 3DS, published by Marvelous Entertainment for the PlayStation 4 and for Steam.
Since it's a remake of the original Burst, the story remains largely the same, containing the two story arcs, Skirting Shadows (the Hanzo Academy arc), and Crimson Girls (the Hebijo Academy arc). Downloadable content adds two additional mini-arcs, Ice Queen (starring Yumi) and Abyssal (starring Miyabi).
Changes from Burst
- Whereas the original Burst was a 2.5D side-scroller action game, Re:Newal is a full 3D action game with updated graphics and gameplay features from Estival Versus. However, unlike the Versus series you cannot go Frantic during a mission. You can only go Frantic when starting a mission, just like the original release. Completing a mission in Frantic mode adds a star to your ranking at the end.
- Downloadable Content adds 13 additional characters from the Versus series, along with two mini-arcs starring Yumi and Miyabi respectively.

On October 12, 2018, XSeed announced that they would delay the western release of Burst Re:Newal in order to remove the Intimacy mode from the PS4 version, while the Steam version would keep the mode intact. They would add that they "respect the wishes of the platform holder".
