Marvelous’s new 3DS game, Senran Kagura, is a side-scrolling action platformer starring a group of five ninja school students battling evil mercenary ninjas. You can juggle enemies in aerial combos, double-jump and dash around the screen. Sounds awesome, right?

Oh, by the way, all the characters are young women, “ranked” by bust size. During the game, their clothes tear off, and occasionally the screen will zoom in and display their decreasingly covered bodies in 3D.

Senran Kagura will be out in Japan this summer.

The Plasma Cutter replica included with the collector’s edition of Dead Space 2 is nice and all, but it doesn’t have that overboard extravagance that some people want from their video game memorabilia. Now, these full-size replicas being released next month — there’s some real, substantial money-wastin’.

The $220 replica of the Plasma Cutter from the first Dead Space, and the $240 Dead Space 2 version, are packaged in metal briefcase-style carriers, and have rechargeable batteries to power the realistic “3-blast spot” lighting. The only thing they lack is real cutting power — which is a shame, because at these prices, you’re going to wish for real life-or-death monster battles to justify the cost.

[Thanks, Johnnynumber5!]

In my humble opinion, the best motion games are the ones that make you look embarrassingly stupid. Face Raiders continues Nintendo’s long legacy of making you look foolish … but usurps its predecessors by making the stupidity contagious. With its clever use of photo manipulation, motion controls, and augmented reality, Face Raiders is not only one of the most technologically impressive games available at the 3DS preview event today, but also one of the most fun. The fact that it’s included for free on every 3DS system makes it that much more compelling.

Face Raiders is an extension of one of my favorite E3 tech demos: the augmented reality shooter. Thanks to the built-in 3D cameras, your world is your playground, whether you’re at the office, at home or outside. Enemies will appear all around you, and you’ll have to move your body to find and destroy these virtual baddies. Unlike the tech demo, though, you don’t just fight random blocks and cubes. Instead, you fight people’s faces. Yeah!

At the start of each level, you must take a portrait photo of someone, aligning their eyes and mouth with the on-screen indicator. Once you snap the picture, that image is morphed into a disembodied floating head that, for reasons unknown, will try to attack you. The novelty should be immediately apparent: shooting pellets at a mutated version of a friend’s face is oddly compelling. As the level continues, you’ll notice that the faces will morph, adding costumes, expressions and more.
