About

Virgo Versus the Zodiac is a sci-fi / fantasy Japanese RPG inspired by the Mario & Luigi RPG series and the Mother RPG series in which you play as an obsessed villain.

The game features traditional turn-based combat with real-time execution of moves: blocking, countering and timing your attacks carefully as well as predicting your foes’ moves is essential to succeed in Virgo’s twisted and unforgiving cosmic quest to bring back the Golden Age, a period of peace, symmetry and balance, or so she thinks.

In this galaxy where every action means a reaction, you’ll play as Virgo, the Holy Queen, often called Dreadful Queen by heretics, bringing mayhem to the Zodiac Realms and leaving a trail of stardust on the way, all to fit her excessively righteous worldview.

Key Features

  • Unforgiving timed-actions combat where all conflicts are lethal unless you protect yourself; precise timed attacks and blocks will bring an end to heresy.
  • Counter-Turn system: Any attack can be countered by a variety of equippable counter skills.
  • No random encounters: Battles fought are plot-relevant.
  • Rewards through exploration: As you delve into the most heretical star clusters of the galaxy, you’ll find a vast amount of explorable areas brimming with interactive objects. Many choices that will impact the game can be brought up through world interaction and exploration.
  • Decide your fate with multiple endings.
  • Crafting and upgrading a multitude of items shareable between your party members!
  • 150-plus equipment choices
  • Non-self insert and overly villanious Main Character.
  • Unlikely friends and foes such as Goats, Save Dinosaurs and a Cookie Companion.
  • Spare enemies and make friends!
  • Interact with different Zodiacs outside of the main quest within the Zodiac Memories.
  • Shoot ’em up mini-game and most importantly, you can also ride on Alpacas!
