Namco Bandai is taking the Super Robot Taisen formula and making a similar crossover with anime heroines. Super Heroine Chronicle is a strategy RPG in development for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3. The game brings together heroines from ten different anime and manga series. Here’s a list of confirmed series so far from Dengeki PlayStation:
Di Gi Charat
Swan Song of the Valkyries: Symphogear
Higurashi When They Cry
Aria the Scarlet Ammo
The Familiar of Zero
Dream Hunter Rem
Characters in Super Heroine Chronicle will have toon rendering so expect cel-shaded graphics. Shinichiro Otsuka (Blue Roses, Eternal Poison), Satoshi Urushihara (Growlanser), and Toru Minazuki (To Heart) are artists for the game.
Super Heroine Chronicle plays like a traditional turn based strategy RPG where you move on a map and attack each turn The direction you attack can damage the battlefield and change the terrain. Characters have combination attacks too.
It sounds like Super Heroine Chronicle will have an amusing story since the setting takes place in a school in Akihabara that’s underneath a dome.
