Today Xseed Games announced on Twitter that the forthcoming Senran Kagura Burst remake Senran Kagura Burst Re: Newal will be censored.
To be more precise, the interactive "intimacy mode" will be removed. This will also lead to a "slight delay" in the release of the game, which was hit for the fall.

Another tweet also explained that the movement was due to "respecting the platform's wishes", obviously indicating that Sony Interactive Entertainment took the problem with the mode and demanded removal.
We respect the wishes

Localization Producer Tom Lipschultz also had the following to add.
"If you do not stand up for things you do not like when they come to things you like, you've already lost." -Neil Gaiman
I do not like intimacy mode in SK. But I've always stood up for it because … well this. That's how it begins, my friends.

This is not the first time the Western Arm of Sony Interactive Entertainment takes action against this type of content, such as resistance from PlayStation House, caused the Western release of Omega Labyrinth Z to be canceled.
Fortunately for those who want to enjoy the content removed from the PS4 version, the Steam version will be untouched and will start with the PS4 version with all the content intact. This is probably Valve's final decision not to police the content of games sold on the storefront as long as it is not illegal.
If you wonder what you want to miss on PS4, check out a video of Intimacy Mode below, with permission for the YouTube user's insane long game.
