Super Heroine Chronicle | oprainfall

What’s better than enjoying your favorite anime heroines separately in their respective TV and manga series? Bringing them all together under the umbrella of a single video game title, of course! Namco Bandai’s Super Heroine Chronicle for PlayStation 3 and Vita systems is being compared to the Super Robot Wars franchise- except minus the robots and plus anime ladies from over ten different anime and manga series, including:

Twin Angel – Red Angel and Blue Angel
Kyousogiga – Koto
Di Gi Charat – Di Gi Charat
Swan Song of the Valkyries: Symphogear – Hibiki Tachibana
Super Soniko – Super Soniko
Higurashi When They Cry – Rena Ryugu
Aria the Scarlet Ammo – Aria Holmes Kanzaki
Infinite Stratos – Houki Shinonono
The Familiar of Zero F – Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière
Dream Hunter Rem – Rem Ayanokōji

Few details were revealed in this week’s Dengeki PlayStation, but this is what we do know about Super Heroine Chronicle: the characters will be gathered together in an Akihabara school that has been sealed beneath a dome. The setting is appropriate, given Akihabara’s reputation has a hub of Japanese otaku culture. Gameplay will be turn-based strategy played across a diagonal map. Attacks may damage and change the battlefield during gameplay, and characters will be able to use combination attacks.

The game will also sport cel-shaded graphics, and artists Toru Minazuki (To Heart), Shinichiro Otsuka (Blue Roses, Eternal Poison), and Satoshi Urushihara (Growlanser) are all on staff.

Overall, Super Heroine Chronicle looks like a huge undertaking that anime and manga fans will be eagerly anticipating. Unfortunately, there’s no news yet about the possibility of localization.


Series featured in Super Heroine Chronicle are available on Amazon:

      That’s what I was gonna say, only character I even recognize in the list.

    • Ben Colburn

      Her and Louise… but I have no use for that series. Higurashi on the other hand…

  • Joey Williamson

    I see Super Sonico and I am distraught. How are they going to make her fight, LOL.

      I expect…bounciness, if you know what I mean.

  • mr_stever

  • Roberto Ruiz Contreras

    I only recognized:
    Di Gi Charat, Hibiki Tachibana, Super Soniko, Rena Ryugu, Aria Holmes Kanzaki, Houki Shinonono, and Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière.
    I did get Cross of Venus, Jump Super & Ultimate Stars, and Macross 30 so I might just get it.

    The chances of localization are 0,0000001%. I’m not being cynical here, mind you – I’m just being realistic. This game contains the intellectual properties of many, many anime and manga franchises owned by several companies. Just like with the regular crossover Super Robot Wars games (OG games will always have chance to be localized because all of their content is 100% from the developer studio itself), Super Heroine Chronicle is a localization nightmare.
    Even IF it were localized, the question is if it would make a profit considering most of titles are very niche within the anime community (I myself can only notice The Familiar of Zero and Infinite Stratos).
    If a video game anime crossover where to have Sailor Moon, FMA, Naruto, BLEACH or any other mainstream anime franchise, the chances of a localization would’ve bigger — how much, that’s the question.
