- NIS America Inc's Chris King
announced that Mugen Souls officially hits PSN on Tuesday with details below.
To quote: Greetings, doods! I hope you've all been well! Chris King here, dropping by to let you know that our JRPG title, Mugen Souls, is set to release on PlayStation Network on Tuesday!
I'd like to briefly go over some of the game's awesome features and mechanics for those unfamiliar with the game, and will gladly answer any questions you might have for us! Let's get started!
The story contains all the over-the-top humor and zaniness you've come to expect from NISA. You'll enter a small galaxy in the universe containing seven worlds, shimmering in seven colors... These worlds exist and act independent of one another.
This has allowed them to develop and nurture rich, unique cultures. Then one day, a decree was sent out... "I'm gonna make everything in each of these worlds bow to me!" What a bold statement!
But by whom, you ask? None other than the multiple-personality-having, naively egotistical yet strangely adorable Chou-Chou! Your goal as Chou-Chou is to conquer the universe by uniting these seven worlds, and force everything and everyone to become your loyal peons! An undisputed God at her finest!
The gameplay system is a nice little mixture of turn-based and free movement on the battlefield. When you want to deal some hardcore damage, get ready for some zany fun!
You can initiate group attacks, similar to the Disgaea series, where you might find yourself transported into army tanks and shower explosives all over the enemies. You might also find yourself merging with your teammates, forming an awesome character-windmill, slicing and dicing your enemy for some massive damage.
The creativity of how you attack is in the palm of your hands! When you aren't conquering worlds, you will be traveling the universe in your ship, known as the "G-Castle." Be sure to level up your ship and gather plenty of peons - you'll need them when you enter ship-to-ship combat battles!
In order to enslave enemies to become your peons, you must use the unique system mechanic known as "Moe Kill." To perform this skill, you first must match your personality to your enemy.
Once you've done that, you will need to use short phrases to coincide with the mood of the enemy. After successfully completing this a few times, the enemies will bow down as your new peons! More peons for the win, dood!
Another awesome feature is the "Mugen Field," which operates very similarly to "Item World" in the Disgaea series. It consists of a dungeon with multiple floors, where you can level up your weapons to a hilarious degree.
Take on enemies in a series of consecutive battles and earn tons of EXP! Get ready to grind out those levels to create the perfect Undisputed God of the Universe!
Aside from the Mugen Field, Mugen Souls contains several elements from the Disgaea series, including Disgaea artist Takehito Harada's unique character art, as well as a soundtrack by Disgaea composer Tenpei Sato. Mugen Souls provides a refreshing JRPG experience, so definitely give it a try on PSN next week, dood!
