Review: SENRAN KAGURA Reflexions (Nintendo Switch)
Can you feel it? The beating of her heart… In a classroom after school, learn the ways of “Reflexology” by syncing with her heart and body. SENRAN KAGURA combines with HD Rumble on the Nintendo Switch!
- Anime graphics.
- 7.3GB Download size.
- Massage giving gameplay.
- Online manual- Web browser-based tutorial.
- Four modes of play- Reflexology (Story), Dress up, Mini reflexology (Arcade mode) and diorama.
- Motion control support.
- Can change menu BGM.
- Hand hint feature on/off. (Help)
- Can skip/fast forward/rewind conversations.
- Sessions start off with you rubbing her hands in a way to elicit a response and trigger a daydream.
- Daydreams are a more intimate affair with you able to squeeze/touch/caress or shoot water any part of her body. Again you are using the telltale signs from icons/voice and HD rumble to trigger the special.
- Special- You select from any unlocked accessories and enter into a mini-game of sorts where you do a motion with the controller and must keep the needle within the area and fill the bar before time runs out
- Upon finishing a “session” you earn a liquid that fills up a crystal thing that once filled unlocks more accessories/clothing/images etc.
- Unlocked images can be used for the background image in the menu.
- Full physics engine. Things jiggle is all I will say.
- Motion controls make it a very immersive experience.
- Can bring up the controls at any time.
- Simple enough idea.
- No touchscreen support.
- Little tutorial/help.
- Even after turning motion off you may still have to lay the Switch down flat for your movements with the sticks to register.
- So many IAP for outfits/accessories and characters.
- Doesn’t feel like a game and instead of a demo of sorts.
- Not a game you can easily play on the public transport.
- Not advised to have the sound on too high.
- Niche genre.
- Very NSFW in many many ways.
- Little variation.
- Doesn’t help you unlock the daydreams.

Ok, I am one of those gamers where I just do not get the point of a game like this? I found it very repetitive and difficult to progress. Yes it uses HD rumble in a cool way and motion controls are very immersive but you only get one character and I found more in-app purchases than game outfits. It is like a demo showcasing this level of immersion that you pay for extra content bit by bit. I don’t begrudge or judge anyone that like these games, Each to their own and for them I bet this is a lot of fun and very unique. You will no in a quick hot minute if this is a game for you.
