Card battle game coming to English audiences?

Four English screenshots of Genkai Tokki: Monster Monpiece have surfaced on Idea Factory International’s official website.

The images, which are watermarked with a 2014 trademark, have been on the website since January 3, at least, according to Google Cache.

A localization for the PS Vita erotic card battle game has yet to be announced. A dungeon RPG sequel, Genkai Tokki: Moero Chronicle, was announced last month.

Here’s Idea Factory’s English description of Monster Monpiece:

God’s hammer struck twice, punishing the of world of Yafaniel below…

In the world of Yafaniel, humans and an unusual species called “monster girls” coexist.

May Esperio, an Academy student from Kunaguva, is training hard to become a “master” of monster girls with her best friends, Elza and Karen.

However, after an encounter with a mysterious stranger, Elza became “Lost”, a victim of a strange affliction that plagues both humans and monster girls.

Elza and the monster girls in her service have begun stealing the Magus Quartzes that are held in each of Yafaniel’s major cities.

May decides to travel the world pursuing Elza in an attempt to cure her. However, May knows that if she fails to save Elza, the whole world may be destroyed!

Monster Monpiece first launched for PS Vita last January in Japan.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    awwww yisssssssss…. ^_^

    its probably aksys that’s doing it… if it nisa prepare for censorship(hint hint mugen soul) or perhaps IF is localising it themselfs? we’ll see.

    • Sevyne

      Well IF does have a NA branch now, so it’s definitely possible that they are doing it themselves. Like you said though; We’ll see.

    • almostautumn

      Can’t help but wonder what they’d censor though. Because if they’re looking to kill some of the more risque art-work then they’re going to have to completely redo every single 3rd-tier evolution, and I just don’t see that happening.
      And it also SHOULDN’T happen, because for one the 3rd-tier really isn’t that pornographic, and two this is a Sony platform, not Nintendo. The Mugen Souls censoring was really bizarre, but from what I understand that was raw ESRB and nothing to do with the publishers. Hopefully the ESRB F’s off here because truthfully this game is hardly pornographic at all in terms of artwork. Suggestive as can be, yes: but it is not porn.

      • Elvick

        But we can’t blame the ESRB, they never play a role in censorship! NISA is evil and out to get us!

    • DesmaX

      Highly doubt the company that said no to Criminal Girls would bother with this

      • Warboss Aohd

        Criminal Girls was………a special case.

        it was kinda of messed up.

        This is just pandering, somehow i don’t think the 2 are properly comparable…….at least in terms of censorship.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          You really don’t know much about Monpiece, do you…? Criminal Girls certainly wasn’t a special case. Both would need to be censored in some way.

          • PrinceHeir

            so what happened to Criminal Girls??

            • Budgiecat

              they got incarcerated….

          • Budgiecat

            But Witcher 2 and BMX XXX and Conkers Bad Fur Day didnt get censored…

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Neither did Heavy Rain. What’s your point?

              • Budgiecat

                Game journalists and publishers like to pick their focal point to bash and censor and Japan’s an easy target

                • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                  9 out of 10 of them also talk out of their ass.

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owltron

    Now THAT is surprising…anyways, make it happen, Idea Factory.

    • Budgiecat

      Actually its not surprising. I mean its Idea Factory…..what else have they got.

      Now if the article was stating that Dragon Quest VII and both Dragon Quest Monster games were finally getting localized for the 3DS, Final Fantasy Type Zero was getting a PS3/Vita remaster and both Tales of Hearts R/Tales of Innocence R games were getting localized for the Vita, then that’d be something I could get excited for.

      This? Meh.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Well, aren’t you just a ray of sunshine?

        • HighBrowDrifter


        • Budgiecat

          It’s your fault

  • DesmaX

    … Seriously, how would anyone mess up this bad?

    There was no reason to change the images already in their database

  • Grunwald

    Wha…I’d be honestly surprised if this game actually…

  • Elvick

    How can this be? If this is coming, then I don’t know what is off limits anymore.

  • OverlordZetta

    Better this than the upcoming Moero “guy so perverted he made himself shy to not assault women with his dildo sword” Chronicle, right?

    Seriously though this might be cool.

    • TheExile285

      I agree. I’m actually interested in this. Moero looks meh IMO.

    • Dokuro


  • Warboss Aohd

    Gork and Mork preserve me

  • Lester Rat

    You can start debating which will be 2015 GOTY, because 2014 GOTY is already decided.

  • http://Gematsu.com Vayne

    I hope it brings all your VN westward.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      they need so much works to translate a VN, yet console VN are very underrated in the west.. they just can’t do

      • Budgiecat

        Because most people in the West find them boring, stagnant and archaic

        and no gunz

  • Renaldi Saputra

    so, this kind-of-pervert-game finally got localized?
    NISA is so hotblooded

  • PrinceHeir
    • HighBrowDrifter

      Brings a whole new meaning to “rubbing one out”…..

  • Chestnut Bowl

    OH MY! I will gladly double dip for this, assuming there will actually be an English MonMon.

  • GDI

    Wonderful news!

    Looking back, this did have some chance because:

    1.) It’s own IP
    2.) It performed well in Japanese market.
    3.) SCEA is starving for content on Vita (they pushed for more 3rd party support) so they’re more willing to turn a blind eye to questionable content.

    Probably was a surer bet than say, Guided Fate Paradox.

    • Elvick

      lol… the last sentence is so wrong.

      Guided Fate Paradox is a in-house NIS developed game. What’s the last new game that NIS developed that NISA didn’t bring over?

  • JonathanisPrimus
    • MitsukiIX

      nice find.. so they are localising it themselfs it seems.

  • Vermillion
