Eiyu*Senki Releases on Steam Today

Eiyu*Senki will be made available at 5pm PST / 8pm EST / 1am GMT

GAME SUMMARY

Eiyu*Senki is a hybrid game that merges the storytelling depth of visual novels with the gameplay of a tactical sim. Your goal is to conquer the world in the name of peace, and along the way you'll be able to recruit over 70 historical figures as allies, such as Marco Polo, King Arthur, Rasputin, Aristotle, all genderbent as cute girls.

Eiyu*Senki was previously released on the PS3 under the name Eiyuu Senki but suffered from translation issues and cut content, deemed too mature for the platform. This new release of Eiyu*Senki is spiritually the "Director's Cut" of the game, providing an experience closer to the original Japanese release with an improved translation, some restored mature content and reduced price. A completely uncut and uncensored version is also available directly from the JAST USA store.


STORY

Set in a world run by powerful nations where heroes battle one another for control, Britannia wishes to unite the world through peace, while the European Union has taken an aggressive stance. The seafaring nation of Vinland thrives on pillaging and plundering, while far to the East, the island country of Zipang is faced with civil war. In the midst of all this Himiko, a ruler in Zipang, seeks to unite the world for the sake of peace. Her ambitions are high but so far she has only seen defeat. One day, while retreating from battle, a mysterious hero falls from the sky and joins Himiko's cause. The two now set their sights on the war burning around them.


GAMEPLAY

Eiyu*Senki takes you on an adventure to the ends of the earth and back as you help Himiko save the world from an endless war. You'll meet unique characters inspired from real historical figures and mythological icons, like King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Rasputin, Kamehameha of Hawaii, Beethoven and many more. There are over 70 characters who can join your side, each with their own valuable battle skills and side-quest storylines. Your battle party can have up to six members, so you have literally millions of possibilities to form your "dream team" to take down monsters, zombies, dragons, and evil villains. The tactics based combat starts out simple and grows in difficulty as new enemies and abilities are unlocked, making the gameplay easy to learn yet increasingly challenging and addictive.

The leveling system is unique among RPGs, with two ways to level-up your characters' combat effectiveness: their troops, and their relationship with you. Purchase additional troops for your teammates every turn, increasing their damage output and stamina, or complete side quests and romance storylines to unlock new combat skills and abilities. If you are a completionist then it will take 40 to 50 hours to experience all the characters side stories. It's a massive game that is super fun to play!
