Well, Monster Monpiece Is From Compile Heart…

By Spencer . November 21, 2012 . 2:03am

By the video alone Monster Monpiece looks like Doki Doki Majo Shinpan or something like that. It’s supposed to be a card game, but the first trailer just shows… rubbing. Compile Heart calls this the "extreme rub" system and it uses the front and back touch panels. Yeah, Compile Heart isn’t known for their subtlety…


Monster Monpiece turns mythological creatures like the minotaur and doppelgangers into to monster girls drawn by 40 different artists. Monster Monpiece is slated for release on January 24, 2013.

    Uhm… finally a developer who makes good use of PS Vita features? :3


      >_> look forward to play this game online 

  • Dede Ogbe

    Instant System seller in Japan…..

  • WTF I just watched? О_О

  • malek86

    I think this is even less subtle than Majo Shinpan…

    Also, dat motion.

  • safeto20scroll

    I can’t tell whats more shocking… the rubbing mechanic or the fact that they got a woman to do the rubbing o_o

  • Belphegor

    And here’s me thinking it couldn’t get any worse than the massage mini games of Agarest 2… ah well you live and learn. Have to admit that there’s a part of me that’s kind of impressed that they’ve managed to take something as innocuous as a seal cub and turn it into a phallic metaphor.

    • Aoshi00

      And it’s a woman playing it :)  I thought it was fun opening a sealed letter in AC Liberation lol..

      • Elvick

        I love opening letters in AC3: Liberation. Simple joys. 

        This though… xP

    • Kibbitz

      I don’t know what it says about me that I didn’t notice the phallic metaphor until someone pointed it out. And then ever since, I can’t unsee it.

      • Belphegor

        Lol – It probably reflects better on your character for not noticing it than it does for those of us that did – sorry for pointing it out, in cases like this ignorance is definitely bliss :D

        P.S. just noticed the image used for the thumbnail link to another article. That seal winking at me just has so many different connotations now… :(

        • Kibbitz

          Oh, don’t worry, it’s not your fault, I blame it purely on DrakosAmataras, IIRC =P Back then, someone posted screens of the seal as well as a Nyuu Heroine pun thing for Senran Kagura from famitsu in the Open Thread and Drakos pointed it out.

          • Hey, you try telling me the way they put a muffler around the seal’s neck didn’t make its head silhouette look really obvious.

          • Kibbitz

            That’s exactly what I meant! I totally did not see it until you mentioned it, unbelievable as it sounds!

      • PoweredByHentai

        I honestly didn’t see the seal as a phallic metaphor until ro-kurorai showed me that magazine image of the seal’s limit break progression.  XD

        • Kibbitz

          But that’s exactly it, you see, even after ro-kurorai showed me that, I still didn’t make the connection until Drakos brought it up!

  • xavier axol

    I wonder what will happen when you battle?

  • Elvick

    So much for my localization hopes.

    • MrTyrant

      Aksys would localize it anyway. 

  • Syltique

    First Compile Heart game I’ve wanted.

  • Lester Paredes

    Well… that was… something…

  • Nanashi Toushiro

    Honestly this is the first game I’d buy a Vita for…

  • HassanJamal

    Yep, no chance of localization now.

  • Trotmeister

    Just how low can Compile Heart/Idea Factory go? Each of their new games looks even more ridiculous and fanservice-y than the last.

    • landlock

      The thing is if they didn’t sell they wouldn’t make them. Why shouldn’t they explore a untapped market on the consoles. Besides let’s face it the game in the end will be nothing much because SCEI will have had to approve it and there pretty strict afterall.

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

       To be fair… at least Ar Tonelico Qoga, Hakuoki and Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 are fairly playable and they are pretty decent RPG’s (IMHO) but everything else they release is just awful.

      • Ar Tonelico series is made by Gust, mind you.

        • Juan Andrés Valencia

           You are right, I’m sorry!

    • Luna Kazemaru

       just as about as much as you can complain

  • I’d challenge someone to play this, full volume, on public transport. 

  • psycho_bandaid

    I don’t need a Vita to do that, though….

  • samim2357

    …Is that seal supposed to represent a…

    Oh wow, I hope that’s just me.

    • I think everyone is thinking the exact same thing. 

  • Hexen

    She does it like a pro.

  • This game as one major flaw, you have to use both hands.

    • Barrylocke89

      Just put the Vita down on the table <_<

  • Darkrise

    But we already have Monster Girl Quest. =P

    • MrTyrant

      But it doesn’t have tactical screen. How can you not touch Alice? it’s madness.


  • Derek E Nay

    Oh yes… more. Right there, faster!! oh wait…

  • tubers

    Oh yeah! xD

    Now.. to await Doki Doki Majo Shinpan: Vitalicious Edition :)

    • PoweredByHentai

      Yay!  Doki Doki Majo Shinpan!  :D

  • XypherCode

    She’s very skilled at playing the game I must say…

  • Subtlety is definitely not in any dictionary they have.

    What I found really funny is that it was a woman that was “playing” this game. Brilliant.  

    Actually this type of trailer will leave a lasting impression – For good or bad? Depends on the viewer.

  • echokanon

    I actually was interested in this game, being a moe monster card game. But I think this feature has crossed the line so I should be dropping this game…

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Finally – PS Vita Lets You Touch Up Girls  ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°  lol

    • PoweredByHentai

      We could touch up Kat (Gravity Rush) and the girls in Hot Shots Golf.

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        but in not in that way……….

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    B-But you said there would be card battles…

  • And a majority of touch screens mysteriously wore out after the release of Monster Monpiece.  Compile Heart gave a press statement saying “I regret nothing”.

    • Kibbitz

      Vita sales increase, Sony declares that Monpiece-induced wear not covered under warranty =P

    • PoweredByHentai

      I regret nothing.  XD

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Fricking coward. If that mouthpiece had any b*lls, he would have said “Just as designed”.

  • Abhishek Posooa

    0.12 – 0.17
    I’d love to “play” with her.

  • MrTyrant

    I really like Agarest, they could have made a new installment for vita instead of this. Oh well, monster girl at least.

  • The game looked like a very decent card game, one with cute anime girls. Then came this and I just feel… Well, I don’t really know how to feel about it. Hopefully this isn’t a driving feature of the game, though, from the comments being made, it seems like it will be…

    Still interested, to an extent, but not as much as I was formerly.

  • almostautumn

    LMAO! That’s one of the best trailers I have ever seen for anything. I love the second part; reminds me of No More Heroes!!!

    I’m not much of a card-gamer, but this trailer has definitely sold me; not out of perversion, but hilarity, which is something I think is equally as present, in this trailer and probably throughout the game, as the sexy stuff.

  • AndyFe

    Well I know one place I’m not playing this, Public.  

    • xzeldax3

      I’m the opposite; I want to play this on the bus with the volume up so everyone can enjoy!!!

  • Go2hell66

    well most of us already have vitas but i know some people who would buy one just for this game

  • kool_cid414

    I’d play it….. with headphones on of course

    • Be sure it doesn’t “leak”!!!

      Omg, that came out wrong. >_<

      • kool_cid414

         All is forgivin for making me laugh quite hard.

  • delon33

    I’m not sure if any of you noticed this but the first few seconds of the video gives the image of a limp dick becoming erect. 

    • tubers

      dat SEAL


      • M’iau M’iaut

        ARF ARF ARF

  • Where’s the censor for once, damn it.

    Nice hands by the way!

    • The censor made it looked worse lol…. From a distance it like….. FORGET IT.

    • Barrylocke89

      I’ll be honest, the second time I watched, I couldn’t stop staring at her (his?!) fingernails.

  • Fryxell

    Speechless. o_o

  • Zonic505

    In others news, sales of the Vita more than quadruple following the recent trailer of Monster Monpiece.

    & oh god, I couldn’t stop laughing once the “gameplay” started at 12 seconds.

    Never stop being awesome, Japan. 

  • Genjo

    the question is will NIS America bring is out in U.S/EU area?

  • Barrit

    LOL, that was awesome.

    I’ve never had any interest in any of these ‘card’ games, but I’d play this one.

  • Sergio Briceño

    Actually I had my doubts, but it’s official now. It’s not leaving Japan.

  • zero254

    At lease now the vita can stop lagging behind the 3ds with this now.

  • That’s why I fucking love Japan and Japan-exclusive games. Call me whatever you want, but my pre-order at amazon stays. At least it will shift some Vitas.

  • ivanchu77

    That seal in the beginning…….. 

  • konsama


  • TenRX

    Game of the Year all the Years

  • The story is what matters they said, pfeh!

  • I-I…um…..I’m just gonna….yeah…….

    I WANT THIS! >_<

  • My reaction to the video:  やりすぎっす。

  • Linhua

    ………………… okay i’ll just say it then.

    Play or Fap.

    … at least something like that should have been the title for this game because I would find that a lot of people would have a hard time trying to do both.

    Captain Obvious: … that was strangely arousing.

    … yes, much more strange than the usual strange that Compile Heart usually gives its target audience.

  • Leivinia

    Obviously you need to get in touch with the heart of the cards. And the ass too, just for good measure.

    • Ben Tan

       now TAPPING for mana is legit

  • Kevin Lor

    The way he stroke that vita! lol

    • Darkrise

      Actually a she lol.

  • ErhmagerdWerds

    Man, this technology could make BL games way more interactive AND dethrone the Shake Weight as most suspicious gift for your female friends.

  • Yuriangels

     …Oooooooooooh!!! My Yuri-sense  are tingling!!! (^^)

  • VeroC11


  • Herok♞

    I am going to buy this just so I can play it in public and make people feel awkward.

    • PoweredByHentai

      I thought that was my job? o_o

      • Herok♞

         fine we can play against each other in public wearing very strange costumes, to set it over the top.

        • PoweredByHentai

          I’ll get my Kyuubey outfit.  /人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\

          • Herok♞

             and I will get my bridget costume.

          • PoweredByHentai

            I honestly don’t remember where I put my Tokyo Mew Mew outfit.

          • Kibbitz

            Can you make it such that your Kyuubey looks like it’s gnawing on Herok’s head? =P

          • PoweredByHentai

            Eh, this outfit should be more than good enough:

  • Compile Heart strikes again with the subtlety of a school of elephants marching through a dry bamboo forest.

  • Kai2591

    Japanese technology!

  • sherimae1324

    ???? -_-

  • Arcana Wiz

    “It’s supposed to be a card game, but the first trailer just shows… rubbing.”
    Well, they have to show first the most important things first you know… for sales
