Mugen Souls Z

Santa Ana, Calif. (October 22, 2013) – NIS America is excited to announce the acquisition of Mugen Souls Z™ for digital and physical release in the North American and European markets in 2014! Created by COMPILE HEART, Mugen Souls Z™ features a vibrant, free-roaming battle map, unique turn-based combat, and massive amounts of customization to quench even the most hardcore RPG fan’s thirst. Top all of that off with billions of points of damage, player level caps of 9999, and gorgeous art, and you, sir, have got yourself one seriously fun RPG.

Our favorite Undisputed God of the Universe, Chou-Chou, returns with her crew for a brand-new story revolving around the zodiac. Taking place immediately after the first game, you take control of the goddess Sylma, who meets Chou-Chou before the end of the first game’s events. Sylma is out to stop an ancient threat to her world that has recently awakened. 9999 levels of maniacal mishaps and ethereal adventures await Sylma, her crew, and hordes of Shampurus as Mugen Souls Z hits Western shores in 2014!

Notice: Due to the sensitive nature of some content, NIS America has decided to edit certain aspects of this title for its North American and European releases.

    I SERIOUSLY hope the dumb and incompetent people at NISA don’t screw up everything AGAIN.

      But we all know that’s asking way too much for them.

    • madmofo145

      Would you care to expand? I never played the first game but have contemplated purchasing it based on some positive reviews, so I’d be very interested in hearing what they screwed up?

    • Thanatos2k

      The first game had positive reviews? You might want to double check that my friend.

    • madmofo145

      I should rephrase that. Some positive user reviews and positive reviews from niche RPG friendly critics. It sounded like those who went in expecting an overly japanese game and the quirks that sometimes go with it often times enjoyed it (as evidenced by the 8.0 average user review on Metacritic). On niche games I prefer reviews by fans of their respective genres, but it sounds like your implying that there were some major localization problems. I haven’t heard too much about these as most negative reviews I remember hated the gameplay, not the localization.

    • Thanatos2k

      It’s a Compile Heart game, which should tell you all you need to know about how bad it is.

    • Steve Baltimore

      Well the a few of the problems I had with first game were it does have some frame rate issues. I didn’t care for the terms they used to describe the personalities, and the upgrade system for the weapons, characters, and ect. was kinda clunky. That being said the story had it’s own kind of charm to it, wasn’t the greatest but not bad. The combat was fun, though the moe kill system was very random at times. It wasn’t a horrible game, but it wasn’t a great either. They only real issues I had with what NISA did was the before mentioned personality names and the fact your created peons were not voiced in English.

    • madmofo145

      Thanks. So it sounds like a game I might contemplate picking up my backlog was ever significantly diminished, or if I happened across a copy for $10.

  • Tara

    I still have the first one here, unopened. I need to get around to playing it already. Well, along with a bunch of other games.

    I’ll probably pick this one up when it’s released anyway. I don’t mind if it’s censored, I figure there’s a lot of ways this could be a bit… above what’s allowed. I tend to take the stance of “if we can only get it if it’s censored, or not get it at all, I’ll take the censored version”.

  • Thanatos2k

    Another Compile Heart game? Shudder.

    And clearly another pedophile game given NIS has to censor it.

  • John Ellis

    Compile Heart need to go out of business, they give JRPGs a bad name.
