posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Idea Factory International announced on Tuesday that it will release Compile Heart's Monster Monpiece PlayStation Vita game in North America and Europe this spring via the PlayStation Network. Idea Factory's official English website is currently streaming a promotional video for the game.
Idea Factory will release Monster Monpiece with English text and Japanese voiceover. The company describes the card battle strategy game with light RPG elements as follows:
God's hammer struck twice, punishing the world of Yafaniel below...
In the world of Yafaniel, humans and an unusual species called "monster girls" coexist. May Esperio, an Academy student from Kunaguva, is training hard to become a "master" of monster girls with her best friends, Elza and Karen. However, after an encounter with a mysterious stranger, Elza became "Lost", a victim of a strange affliction that plagues both humans and monster girls. Elza and the monster girls in her service have begun stealing the Magus Quartzes that are held in each of Yafaniel's major cities. May decides to travel the world pursuing Elza in an attempt to cure her. However, May knows that if she fails to save Elza, the whole world may be destroyed!
The company explained that it has decided to remove several Monster Girl images from the North American and European release, but the gameplay, game system, and storyline will remain fully intact. The company said it has 17 cards whose images will be limited to their level 1, 2, or 3 evolution form "due to the strong sexual nature of the card images."
Compile Heart originally released the game in Japan in January 2013.
This is Idea Factory International's first game announcement since Idea Factory revealed in October that it would open a new branch in California. Idea Factory established this branch to "focus on providing general and overall information regarding such Idea Factory properties to North American and European fans, as well as strengthen the Idea Factory brand around the globe."
