Mugen Souls Hits PSN Tuesday

Chris King's Avatar + Posted by Chris King on May 17, 2013 // NIS America, Inc.

Mugen Souls

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!

Mugen Souls

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!

Mugen Souls Mugen Souls

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!

Mugen Souls Mugen Souls

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!

Yeah, it’d be nice if they wrote: “Available to PS3 or PS Vita owners on PSN next week” somewhere in the blog. lol. Guess I’ll wait to see or look around online to see if it’s playable on my Vita.

Pass, game still ducks. CH just doesn’t like games like NIS does. There is a reason the collectors edions are still available on the NISA Webstore….
Glad you keep bringing titles over, but this was definitely one of the failed ones. It just wasn’t good like most CH games. Let us know when we can preorder Disgaea D2(1.4GB), Guided Fate Paradox(2.8GB) and Time and Eternity. Please release them digitally as well like they are on the JP PSN. Any idea why Disgaea D2 is so small…makes me worry about content.

i hope to god you guys are charging more than $9.99 for this game considering how buggy the disc version was when i rented it last year. The framerate would drop to ridiculous levels after every battle. It was so annoying.

Why can’t we get real and proper turn based JRPGs this gen?

Why all this loli pedo crap instead of great games such as ones like Xenogears and FFVII? I don’t remember JRPGs being so disgusting on PS2 and PS.

For anyone asking about Vita release, its not up to NISA. Its up to Compile Heart, the original Japanese developer.. and they’ve already released the next game in the series, so they wouldn’t be going back to old games just to port them to Vita.

I will probably pass on this for a while longer, waiting on Disgaea D2/Guided Fate Paradox from you guys as well as Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD, Muramasa Rebirth, Tales of Xillia, and Ys Celceta. It’s a busy year for JRPGs in the West.
