Moero Chronicle

The next PS Vita game from Hyperdimension Neptunia developer Compile Heart is Genkai Tokki Moero Chronicle.

Unlike its card battle predecessor Genkai Tokki Monster Monpiece, Moero Chronicle is a 3D dungeon RPG. Specifically, Compile Heart defines it as a “rubbing, pinching, panty-wearing RPG.” It is being produced by Norihisa Kochiwa, directed by Makoto Kitano, and features character design by Katsuyuki Hirano.

Retail listings from Trader and Amiami have shared first story information and screenshots.

Story

A boy with profane thoughts swirling within himself is troubled. He can’t talk to girls for fear of being called a pervert. On top of that, the only person who he can speak honestly to is his childhood friend, a monster girl, until suspicious feelings emerge. He hates himself for that.

At exactly that time, disasters began to occur around the world. Here and there, natural disasters struck, and monster girls suddenly became hostile towards humans, causing mankind to take a stand in an unprecedented crisis.

There is a rumor that a “Legendary Monster Girl” is trying to destroy the world.

The boy was ordered to investigate the origin by the village elder. He acts like nothing is out of the ordinary and takes his childhood monster girl friend along with him as he adventures into the world of monsters.

The protagonist is a boy named Io. He has a monster girl childhood friend named Lilia. And they have a two-tailed monster cat friend named Reche.

Moero Chronicle is due out on April 24 in Japan for 6,800 yen. An 8,800 yen limited edition version of the game includes a “Hajimete no XXX” voice works CD and five bath posters. First-print copies include a special visual book.
