Use “Moe Attacks” To Enslave Enemies In Mugen Souls This Fall

By Ishaan . March 29, 2012 . 10:57pm


 

Mugen Souls, Compile Heart’s next game with lolis is headed to North America and Europe. NIS America announced that they have Mugen Souls lined up for release on the PlayStation 3 in the US and PAL regions this fall.

 

NIS America’s release of the game will be censored, they note. Due to “the sensitive nature of some content,” certain aspects of the US/EU versions of the game will be edited.

 

What is Mugen Souls? It’s a turn-based role-playing game with “Moe Kills,” which can be used to enslave enemies and turn them into items. Mugen Souls also allows you to customize your characters, including their body parts, facial expressions and job classes.

    i dont understand the censorship at all. if its rated m for mature witch it is. it shouldint be censored at all. i want the full game as it is. not because theres nudity or ect. its art, its animation people need to get over it. i will get the censored version. but . i just also imported it as well cause i want the full game weather its one or 2 scenes taken out or not. point being this whole boner over censoring crap is getting old and anoyying and one big reason why people dont bye many of theses games.

    • ShadowWolf

      its because the characters look like children, they are trying to cover their asses from the media and/or ESRB.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002595922411 Tree Elf

    i honestly dont see why. ive seen worse in some games.  expecaily western rpgs. such as castle vania lord of shadows . well its technical  a japanese game but point is there more real looking grphics such as cgi . point is they show full blown out titties. and fyi it is because they look loli is one of the main reasons and jsut because something looks loli dosent mean there  always gonna be underaged. and plus its anime . its art. thats how it is. people get to much of a boner over omg its to risy . boo thats why its rated m for mature. so i see no point in censoring

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002595922411 Tree Elf

    its retarded its rated m for mature for a reason. plus its anime and art. if u people are thinking its molesting then ur the ones with the sick minds.

    • GWTrinku

      Rated Mature, to me, means the content contained is indeed mature. What we have here is slapstick and overall silliness and for all purposes it may as well just been Teen if it weren’t for the overly anime inclusion of tiny girls doing sexually suggestive things.

      Comparing other games that gained the M rating for content, look at SMT: Nocturne. That game dealt with death and disturbing imagery and parital nudity alongside a story line that actually called for M because of actual mature themes such as Gnosticism and discussing the concept of religion in the “Ideals”.

      To quote someone I saw discussing the topic of this kind of thing before: “I’m a grown man. If I need to see something sexual, I’ll go look up something sexual. I’m finding it harder and harder to enjoy these kinds of games from Japan because they’re too busy waving not-quite boobs in my face while making it seem like this is some cool new thing only they’re doing. It’s the most immature thing in the world and caters to a certain kind of immature person.”

        then dont play the game. to me its anime andart and i disagree period ur statement was boring and pointless. its anime based jrpg theres gonna be werid stuff. and it still is mature. but tree elf has a point if people dont like what they put in it dont play it andbe mature n get over it

        • GWTrinku

          Fine then, the short version:

          If this game is what we’re considering art and we’re allowing this to pass because “It’s anime”, then both anime and video games have a long way to go before they’re considered mature at all.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002595922411 Tree Elf

    ur completely wrong  its the esrb that does censoring as well the esrb is the ones whole told nis america to censor the stuff or its gonna be  A for adults witch to me is no different from m for matrue

    • SirRichard

      I’m not American, but I’m pretty sure the ESRB doesn’t censor games, mate, just as the PEGI doesn’t. In fact, this very article states NISA themselves are editing the game, I’m not sure why this makes the ESRB retarded.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003209337717 Joey Bromhead

        the esrb actully does have apart in it they said it them selfs if people would do there research a lil more.  also i do agree the nis america did witch is stupid ive seen worse games.

  • Emily Jackson

    Censored? Thanks TERA ONLINE and that stupid case with Hadely. Skipping the NIS verison completely and going straight JP Import.

    Consumers are being given less and less choices on the products they decide to buy for themselves just to satisfy some prude dictatorship overlords. The gaming industry is a joke now.

  • Emily Jackson

    I rather have them not censored at all period. If you deem your product as a problem the simpliest solution is NOT to license it here.

    Fiction can’t even be fiction anymore. Video-games can’t even be bloody video-games. Only people who enjoy head explosions and violence are allowed to have their games uncensored.

  • Emily Jackson

    Overloard your blind. The “MAJORITY” of people will not play this game because of the following:

    1)It’s too cutesy
    2) It’s anime-styled
    3) They probably know much about this game as a can left inside a garbage disposale compared to Gears of War or some other franchise
    4)People and companies have a bad habit of treating anything cartoony being meant for little babies to play

    There’s a lot more to this. It’s because companies don’t want to risk “offending” some prudish group out there so now their just going on ahead and censoring everything they license over here now.

    Because in America if someone complains enough it means entire products, merchandise, and items must be vanquished or censored. Because America is stuck in the mentallity that fictiona, created cartoon characters means real life. And America shouldn’t allow cartoon characters in a bath-scene because it’s “real-life”.

    America did this to minorities, and they did this to homosexuals. The same fear-mongering badgering that’s been put in as “censorship” on this game is the same mentallity people had towards homosexuals 50 years ago.

    Now the newest fad and target is to aim at Japanese games because America is uncomfortable with even the slightest nudity unless it’s some 7″2 pixel character. The sad thing is is that the censorship just puts the artist and developer inside the box where they can’t even use their imagination anymore. Media like Chobits could be potentially censored, Dance in the Vampire Bund could be censored. Companies are simply just choosing to censor things to avoid lashback without a second-thought.

    Welcome to the Farenheit 451 of so called “Freedom of Expression” in video-games and media entertainment.

    Right now the Anime Fan Community is made up of informed fans who DO NOT understand that this censorship has a lot more affect on them then they know it.

    How would you like to draw a picture of your character wearing a bikini and get accussed of promoting heinous real-life crime for it? For your character’s stomach showing? For the character even BEING there and not some 30 year old female with a stomach showing?

    That’s how SERIOUS this bullshit is becoming. Fiction is no longer respected as fiction any-more. Your not allowed to express your character the way you want anymore. Your only allowed to follow what companies want and what prudes want. And if prudes make enough noise, you can see yourself or your customers being thrown in the slammer.

    If you say anything against why the game has been censored you will be labeled as a ****. And no one wants to be wrongfully labeled as a **** so people tend to shut up and quietly sit down and take the censorship. That or be possibly witch-hunted for playing a game.

    Some of us will still try to fight for artistic freedom of expression in media and entertainment, regardless though.

    People like SirRichard,and other super sensitive prude type ones out there can sit back and use the old “BUT THEIR REAL, LOOK AT THEIR AGE! IT’S WRONG” claim and get things censored, but enjoy as much blood, guts, head explosions, killings and violence in their media entertainment as possible with fictional characters.

  • Emily Jackson

    The Otaku Fandom and Anime is doomed…there’s a lot more to this than what people realize…

  • Emily Jackson

    You should keep that in mind SirRichard when feminist start protesting your groggy M-rated games displaying women in provocative clothing as “meat grinders” and wanting them censored or changed. Or church groups protesting the amount of blood and violence in games too.

    Infact, let America ban anything that may seem objectionable or offensive. Let them ban every rap lyric because it insults women. Let them ban gays in video-games because it’s offensive to people who are in churches or don’t like gays. Let them ban blood and violence in video-games because it’s offensive and objectionable, Let them ban Adult Movies materials because it glorifies prostitution, let them ban anything period because someone might be upset at a pixel or a drawing.

    Sad part is that you can’t ban real-life or the things that happen in real life. You can’t “ban” the Middle-East, You can’t ban violence in real life because violence will happen regardless, and there’s a whoooole lot worst stuff in real life than some silly pixel game.

    So what more? Banning rated works of optional fiction is nothing more than sheer thought-police mentality from hypocrits like you Richard who take things to the extreme.

    • SirRichard

      I see someone who’s the biggest ball of whiny nerd stereotypes I’ve encountered yet, responding to a three month old comment because it just angers them so much that someone dared to criticise the content of their beloved Japanese game.

      I also see someone who believes that calling for the removal of a tiny part of a game is the same as believing that all the evils of the world can be banned and is screaming at someone for holding a belief that they don’t actually hold, simply because it’s easier to accept that the other person is the evil censoring thought police than to admit that the media they consume is flawed and the content of it is in poor taste.

      And I also see someone who sees the Northern Irish flag and thinks “This person is clearly American, I must appeal to that and reference America’s political affairs that this person clearly cares about!”.

      And what’s more? I see someone who clearly doesn’t know anything about the word “hypocrite“, for they accuse someone of being a hypocrite for “taking things to the extreme” when they themselves make extreme comparisons, use exaggerated and hyperbolic language and decry the other party as “super sensitive prudes” for daring to question whether the inclusion of a naked little girl in their videogame is really necessary.

      You’re an absolute star.
