Fighting and cooking… while on the surface they seem worlds apart, if you study them closely, they are much the same. They both require dedication, concentration, creativity, and, of course, expert blade skills.
For this reason, legendary shinobi and keen chef ‘Master Hanzo’ believes that a truly gifted student might just be capable of knocking up a fabled Super Dish. The aforementioned Super Dish is something so bountiful and delicious, words cannot describe its tastiness.
Being the cunning fox he is, Master Hanzo has devised a plan to convince the shinobi warriors of the Senran Kagura franchise to cook for him. He will hold a grand competition, with a prize so wonderful and magical, nobody in their right mind could resist. The first annual ‘Super Dish Gourmet Cook-off’ will offer the winner a Secret Ninja Art Scroll; a magical item that grants one wish to whomever possesses it. Such a prize will surely entice all of the girls to compete, and a gathering of so many Shinobi in one place is bound to bring drama, chaos and a smorgasbord of titillating antics!
Unlike previous entries in the Senran Kagura series, Bon Appetit! veers away from its beat ’em up roots and into new territory. Players’ reflexes, memory and reaction speeds are all put to the test, with fast-paced rhythm/action gameplay combined with delightful and infectious Japanese music.
There are 10 songs to perfect and 10 super dishes to create from day one, with plenty more to come via the Gessen x Hebijo DLC pack. Each shinobi has their own unique story spread over five cooking battles, so there’s plenty more to learn about each and every character.
In addition to this, all character and costume DLC from the other PS Vita exclusive title Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus is compatible with Bon Appétit!, and all players that download the SENRAN KAGURA Bon Appétit! Gessen x Hebijo DLC pack will be treated to a free soundtrack app featuring songs from the game.
While Bon Appétit! may not be for everyone, it’s often the acquired taste that gives the most satisfaction ;) Download it digitally for PS Vita via the PlayStation Store on 12th November 2014.
