Monster Monpiece coming west in spring 2014

Some Monster Girl cards cut due to sexualized content.

Monster Monpiece

Idea Factory International has confirmed it is bringing Monster Monpiece, its PS Vita card battle game, to North America and Europe in spring 2014.

Monster Monpiece uses a card game system at its core. Players will meet Monster Girls on their journey, which are embodied into cards that you can use in battle. There are four types of cards: Melee, Ranged, Healers, and Buffers.

Players will be able to shop for more cards via the in-game academy, and battle against other players via PlayStation Network.

Outside of the card battle system, there are also cutscenes and a world map to explore.

The sexualized content from the Japanese version, which requires the player to rub the girls on the screen to help level up cards, remains in the international release. But certain Monster Girl card images have been removed, however.

Idea Factory said that these Monster Girl card images were cut “solely due to the intense sexual nature of Monster Girl card images.” It emphasized that “the gameplay, game system, and storyline are still fully intact.”
