Rance | MangaGamer
I think we can call a winner for the “Announcement of the Year” now ladies and gentlemen.
Today MangaGamer made an announcement the Visual Novel and Eroge community had been clamoring for, for ages. AliceSoft’s Rance franchise is coming West!
Rance | Rance and Sill
Our amazing hero Rance! Pay no attention to Sill in the foreground there, she’s not important.
The Rance games star Rance, an extremely strong warrior who is motivated by his sexual instincts more than simple things like love or justice. Along for the ride is Sill Pain, his loyal slave and Athena 2.0, an artificial humanoid whom he considers his pet.
Rance | Rance and Chaos
Rance and Chaos. Keep in mind as badass as this is, Rance still hasn’t unsheathed his Hyper Weapon
The games all feature rather deep gameplay elements mixed in with some rather epic and fun story telling. And of course, along the way, many, many, young women will fall to Rance’s mythical “Hyper Weapon” and no I’m not talking about the talking sword Chaos in his hand.

 Our last two announcements both come from our partners, Alicesoft, as well as their infamous Rance series–Rance VI and Rance 5D!


In Rance 5D, a standalone episode in the series, Rance goes adventuring with his slave girl, Sill, and his pet, Athena 2.0, in order to recoup all the money he’s blown! Their travels lead them down a dungeon where they get lost and wander into a mysterious town full of youkai! Together they go dungeon crawling, face dice battles, capture female monsters, recruit and train the monsters they capture, all just to try and get home! There’s loads of gameplay with battles and movement determined by dice rolls, while strategic management of time, skills, and item drops can help affect your odds–no two playthroughs will be the same in Rance 5D! This fun, lighthearted title in the series makes a great intro to Rance before delving into Rance VI!

In Rance VI, Rance travels to the magical Kingdom of Zeth with Sill to take a job. However, In Zeth, mages are considered superior and all others treated as second class citizens! Indignant at his imprisonment and the discrimination turned toward him, Rance joins the resistance to lead Zeth to a revolution! With just cause on his side, Rance sets out to punish the evil mages who scorned him and expand his ever-growing harem! Jam-packed with gameplay, Rance VI is a full 3D Dungeon Crawler, with over thirty dungeons full of different monsters to face and events to trigger!

Both Rance 5D and Rance VI will be sold together in a single bundle for $34.95 this winter!
