Some battles cannot be won with mere steel and brawn. For some wars, you need young monster girls. But even that isn’t enough. And because this is Japan, you need to help those ladies grow on the PS Vita. By rubbing them. Because Japan.
The name of the latest game from the land of the rising sun? Monster Monpiece, a card battle strategy game that has some RPG elements and a “charming story” according to the press release. It’s set in some kind of a techno-fantasy world, where Monster Girls exist alongside humans. There’s also something about training to “master” the Monster Girls and becoming a victim of the “Lost” virus, but I learnt a long time ago to stop asking questions about these kinds of games and just accept them.
One of the main features however, is that a Monster Girl can be levelled up, using the PS Vita rear touch pad. Called the First Crush Rub, by massaging the back of your PS Vita, you can “send your magic power into the cards by rubbing the touch screen”. Also, you can remove plenty of clothing this way. Here’s the full list of features, as well as some screenshots:
Likeable characters and a story rife with adventure!
With a wide range of unique and quirky personalities, the entire cast of Monster Monpiece each add a little spice to the adventurous story from beginning to end!
Use Skills, Potentials, and a strategic mind!
While the battle system seems simple, you still need a strategic mind to best utilize your Monster Girls’ Skills and Potentials in battle!
Fusion and Aura Bonus kick battles up a notch!
The keys to a successful battle lie in mastering the Fusion system and activating the Aura Bonus to increase your cards’ stats during battle!
Card battles featuring 3D chibi characters!
There are more than 100 Monster Girls that will support you in battle against your opponents. Once summoned to the battle field, they will pop upon it as vibrant 3D chibi characters!
The game is out in the northern hemisphere spring. And I have a feeling that it won’t just be the PS Vita that will be getting some rub love.
