First Look At Compile Heart’s Card Game Monster Monpiece

By Spencer . November 7, 2012 . 1:24am


Compile Heart’s first PlayStation Vita game is a card batting game called Monster Monpiece. The game features fantasy monsters like slimes and the minotaur re-imagined with a moe style. Monster Monpiece has a dozen artists contributing designs to the game and online/ad-hoc card battles for two players.


Monster Monpiece is slated for release on PlayStation Vita in spring 2013.

  • …There goes my hope for training some monster (girls)

  • I’m still interested in this game (I love card games), just need to some actual gameplay footage.

     Can a minotaur really be cute?! O_o Just have to wait and see that image.

    • Forgot to mention. Doesn’t her left look a bit weird in this pic, the way her left eye appears in the glasses?

      • The glasses just may be hanging a little low lol

        • For my sake, I hope so; kinda creeped me out.

  • brian yep

    A moe minotaur.
    I’m nearly sold on that idea alone.

  • HassanJamal

    Monster girls+Card game+Vita=Me like-sta

  • refrain

    Looks good to me! If this has an US release, I’ll buy it day one!

  • sherimae1324

    im stunned ^_^

  • Kai2591

    Turn everything into moe!
    I’m more interested in all the different artworks by various illustrators though…they look nice…so curious to know who did what :)

  • This is going to be good! Moe for the win =^_^=

  • Yuriangels

    Give me moe please.  ;)

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Moe Minotaur? If Minotaur can get moe, imagine slime, angels, demons, or even moe sphinx lol.^_^

    • I’d love to see how they make slime moe! That and the minotaur, if they can, moe-fy them, I will get this if it gets localised.

      I can see them moe-fying an angel, devil or sphinx.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Of course.^_^ I believe you would love Moe Sphinx….. after all, Saber Lion would also love that too lol.^_^

        Now, Moe Genbu, Suzaku, Byakko and Shiryu would also be a great plus for me.^_^

        • Definitely! If they are as cute as Saber Lion, then we are all in for a treat! ^_^

          Those would also be awesome to see. You can count me in for that, too. :D

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Card game, huh? This might go well…wait what am I saying, it’s Compile Heart. They’ll ruin it somehow ;_;

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Compile Heart hater i see.T_T

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        No, not a “hater”. I’m just someone who has fell for their nonsense and ended up losing my money every time, thus learning to be extremely cautious with their games. Seems the only thing they can get right is Neptunia. This coming from someone who kept saying they’ve been improving and defended Mugen Souls. Then I played it. *shudder*

        • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

          Hmm, i also don’t really like Mugen Souls there but i still love their effort for Dungeons of Windaria on DS and Octomania on Wii.(Man they should make the second one there rather than just keep throwing moe lol.^__^)

          But i still hope this one will do well.^_^ And of course you should try the game first before buying the game lol. As all everyone should know, Compile Heart game is either hit or miss.^_^

        • DesmaX

          Tip: Never insult/defend a game until you actually play it

          Trust me

        • I almost liked Mugen Souls, but the framerate was so poor in the field that I could never play for more than thirty minutes at a time without getting a headache. :(

          Also I had no clue what was going on with the battle system.

        • I love Mugen Souls. <3

  • Luna Kazemaru

     Why does that remind me of sword girls…

    • Godmars

       Because it has girls in it?

      Though that pretty much covers most JP games.

      • Luna Kazemaru

         no the interface looks almost like sword girls not the 3D part tho. Also Sword girls is a Korea game.

  • Dat art. Must import.

  • Fryxell

    That 2D illustration…Moe overload~!!!

  • Z3

    The UI really screams of Sword Girls Online. HELLLLLLLL YESSSSSSSSSSS. Anyway DAT MOE ART!!! KYAAAAA!!!

    • Luna Kazemaru

      holy crap someone else that plays sword girls :D

    • OFF TOPIC: @ValkyriaXEdge:disqus How good is Sword Girls Online? I might join up and play it.

      EDIT: Started an account already. Loving the artwork!

  • puchinri

    Sword Girls. . .? It looks cute and fun though. I don’t see how completely changing something makes it a “re-imaging.” Unless none of those were indicative of re-imagined monsters.

    I definitely feel like the moe angled is focused on here more than other parts of the design aspect (with characters/cards, at least). But since it is Compile Heart, I’m not surprised. ^u^;

  • Since it’s kind of like Sword Girls I got my interest back(and those card illustrations looks awesome anyway). I was initially disappointed it was a card game, but I’m a fan of SG~

    • s07195

      I made an account a few months ago for SG, but never really got into it. I still can’t figure out the basic gameplay other than the while obvious ‘kill your opponent’ kind of thing.

  • This looks interesting. I love card games and I especially love ones with cute anime girls (Yugioh, get more!!!) XD

    This looks like it could be really fun to have while on the go. It would be a great addition to my minuscule Vita collection (okay, just AC3:Liberation… so far!) 

  • I’ll keep my eye on this but how often does card battling games make it overseas?

  • Elvick

    I hope NISA brings this one over.
