Monster musume fans look to be overjoyed and enraged in equal measure with the news that Compile Heart’s PSV card ’em up Monster Monpiece is being released internationally – but that due to their “strong sexual nature” a large number of monster girls have been dumped to protect the fragile minds of western gamers from corruption.
Idea Factory International, Inc. would like to inform fans and prospective users of Monster Monpiece that we have made the decision to remove several Monster Girl images from the North American and European versions of Monster Monpiece.
The gameplay, game system, and storyline are fully intact and Idea Factory International strives to localize and publish Idea Factory titles with the same content as their Japanese releases.
Here is the list of Monster Girls whose images have been limited to that of their level 1, 2, or 3 evolution form due to the strong sexual nature of the card images: Vampire, Kraken, Goblin, Cockatrice, Kobold, Skeleton, Titania, Bahamut, Fia, Brownie, Pegasus, Mandragora, Mau Sibau, Rafflesia, Death Scorpion, Phantom, and Tengu.
We fully understand that there are needs and demands for the complete version of these games.
Our intention and motivation is to offer Idea Factory titles in a form that is as close as possible to the Japanese versions.
This was a tough decision, but we would greatly appreciate your understanding and support.
Much in the way of understanding or support seems unlikely, but those willing to overlook this can get the title in download form sometime in the spring.
Some examples of the sort of thing western Monpiece fans may be missing out on:
