Senran Kagura Reflexions
Senran Kagura Reflexions is really nothing more than a proof of concept. Honey∞Parade Games set out to make a game where you touch Asuka all over until she's been satisfied and in that respect, it succeeds. Just a damn shame the developer couldn't turn all that touching into something worth playing.
Senran Kagura Reflexions deviates from past entries to explore in depth the troublesome topic of massages. Touching girls so as to receive certain memories in exchange is one of the weirdest things we have done in a long time, and it certainly was not worth our while.

While the Senran Kagura series has always been rife with fanservice and hyper-sexualization, these moments were at the tail-end of addictive action gameplay, funny character interactions, and classic anime cheesiness. These things are what make up the heart and soul of Senran Kagura, and by removing those and placing full focus on the T&A virgin wish-fulfillment, Senran Kagura Reflexions is just a lifeless alternative to an afternoon with your Chrome Incognito tabs.
Senran Kagura Reflexions is an Ecchi dating sim game that in reality is a touching and squeezing simulator. The gameplay feels pervy at times, and gets repetitive and boring fairly quickly. There are no visual issues, and motion controls make things more interesting, but it unfortunately isn't enough to make it entertaining.
If you're into it, Senran Kagura Reflexions will be just what you're looking for.
As innocent and silly as it all pertains to be, it's just a tame excuse to get a bit of cheap sleaze onto a Western games console.
Senran Kagura Reflexions is a something strange. Other than putting the Joy-Con to work, there is little in this work that amounts to a game in its goals and purposes. While the physics included are well executed, there is little content, the dialogues are not compelling, the entire experience is not well structured and there just is very little of a game that can be found in this spin off from the Senran Kagura main series.

I didn't really enjoy Senran Kagura Reflexions at all and I don't think I'll ever be going back to it. Somebody awaken me from my long Asuka-induced hangover when a normal Senran Kagura game comes out on Switch, it sure as hell deserves one on the handheld-hybrid. Also, nobody tell my girlfriend that I reviewed this. Thanks.
If you're a fan of the Senran Kagura characters, manga, and/or anime, I'm sure you'll find some enjoyment with Reflexions. However, if you were a fan of the action gameplay featured in previous titles, this game won't scratch that itch. It's a very different experience to be sure. The visuals are definitely the game's strong suit but the repetitive gameplay reduces the experience and replayability overall.
Senran Kagura Reflexions is no masterpiece, but it was never made to be one. It is a short and sweet adventure of discovery and love, of poking, slapping, grabbing, and ultimately, massaging.
