Super Heroine Chronicle sticks to the tried and true strategy RPG formula. Players move units on a map and attack enemies. The twist is the playable characters come from a hodgepodge of anime series including Higurashi When They Cry and The Familiar of Zero.

 

Namco Bandai made a few original characters for the game too which were designed by notable artists.

Noel (left) was created by Growlanser artist Satoshi Urushihara. Noel combines magic and black magic to create "magical magic," an ability she can use to attack enemies from a distance. She’s still learning so sometimes the skill may be ineffective. When Noel was a child a magician in a purple leotard saved her life, so she aspired to become a magician to help people.

 

Eternal Poison artist Shinichiro Otsuka designed Claude (center). He’s a mysterious boy that traveled around the world, but lost his memory. Sometimes Claude will mutter things to himself. His timid personality makes him a natural pacifist and horrible fighter. In Claude’s specialty is escaping battles and he can use recovery magic.

 

Tora Minazuki known for the To Heart series drew Meru (right) who learned the art of the Magical Yoyo. Meru’s dream is to become an idol and tends to dress like one. She’s known Noel since the two were children.

 

Super Heroine Chronicle has two systems that weren’t fully explained. There is a Soul Sympathy technique that appears to let players choose one of three characters. You can also do an extra attack, which also presents three options to players. Details about these will be revealed later on.

Super Heroine Chronicle has cut in graphics for each character. There are victory graphics and defeated cut in graphics. When a battle ends, players can visit shops and talk to the anime heroines.

    Haha, even the interface look like Queen’s Gate. Been a while since I played that game. So Claude is going to be like Jean? I just hope he’s not a pervert like him. Also, I really hope that Alice from Queen’s Gate would be in this game, although it’s pretty much impossible…

    • Mugen555

      Alice is not banpresto original if i remember, it was Maroon, Cute, and Jean. Alice is original Queen’s gate book character, so the chance she reappear lower than three QG banpresto original.

      Claude going to be typical beta main character, but gamplay wise he might be one of strongest like Jean

      Say the screenshot that include Houki, one of symphogear, and another one are voiced by same person?

      • Ariobimo Wicaksono

        Yeah, that’s why I said it’s pretty much impossible. But really, the only thing that I can think of about the story is that the Queen’s Gate acting up again. Well, if one of the original character from Spiral Chaos like Cute, Lamika, or even Weiss appear, I will also be happy.

        • Yuan

          I wish the Monster Girls (especially the spider one) will be in this game again.

          • Ariobimo Wicaksono

            Yeah, Arane is my favorite monster girl in the game. Even though her status are so-so, she have the ungodly ability to paralyze enemy. I remember beating Ranshel and Sunshel in the first game without any damage because of Arane.

            Now that I think about it, most of the characters that I used in the second game are the monster girls.

          • s07195

            More variety is better, of course. I also used the green version of the Arane to paralyze the final bosses.

            Which reminds me, which monster girls in Queen’s Gate: Spiral Chaos are good?

          • Ariobimo Wicaksono

            Most of them are pretty good. And the fact that they can be deploy in all stage make it all better. I haven’t use all of them but Arane, Annie, Plum, Charlotte, and Stella are all good. It’s better to use their third variant though since the third variant have better skill and status.

      • s07195

        Remind me how Jean is one of the strongest characters again?

        • Ariobimo Wicaksono

          He’s actually one of the strongest since he can level up easily because of his healing. Heck, in my save file, Jean is the only character to hit level 70. And his attacks can easily destroy enemy’s clothes. And he’s a healer, which is always good.

          • Yuan

            Not to mention that he has no armor parts, so no fear of him getting stripped naked when defending allies!

          • s07195

            Wow. 0_0
            I used him a lot in the first game, due to his healing and gamebreaking TACKLE, but with limited deployment spaces and his nerfed tackle, I didn’t really use him that much in the second.

            I really wish healing wasn’t affected by the ‘type’ factor.

        Stop Euzeth.

      Nosebleeds..

    • WyattEpp

      Do my eyes deceive, or does this more strongly echo his older work?

    • biskmater

      Eh, I always thought it looks a little too glossy.

    • Mister_Nep

      Satoshi Urushihara has always been one of my favorite artists. He’s just always been good at drawing beautiful artwork.

    • MrTyrant

      SATOSHI MASTER RACE!!

      I would love his artwork for a SRW, really. This is the closest for now.

    • http://www.carpefulgur.com SpaceDrake

      Tbh, the man’s costuming has gotten a little out of control these past few years. :V I always liked things like earlier Growlanser, when it was distinctive but still a bit more down-to-earth.

      • MrTyrant

        I like super unrealistic clothes, love her boots. The little hat feel…unnecesary.

    • TheExile285

      he really should do more works

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Sooooo hype.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    A weak male that has memory lost? oh snap!! Its cliched harem time!

  • fyi1191

    What can that Zero no Tsukaima’s maid do in battle?
    Love the battle miko from Scarlet Aria, I’m glad she’s in.

  • 古戸ヱリカ

    Alright, Satoshi Urushihara, the kids these days are into magic, so we need your character’s bio to contain the word “magic” as many times as possible.

    “Noel combines magic and black magic to create “magical magic,””

    Perfect!

  • pekikuubik

    Eternal Poison artist Shinichiro Otsuka

    No. Ootsuka Shinichirou most certainly wasn’t the character designer for Eternal Poison. Better credit him for Conception or whatever.

    The character designer for Eternal Poison was Tomatika. She also worked on a recent game called Ragnarok Tactics. You should be able to tell that the character designs in that and Eternal Poison are somewhat similar.

  • Yuan

    So another confirmed characters (from the map and other shots) are:

    Twin Angel: Kurumi (White Angel)

    Symphogear: Tsubasa
    Digi Charat: Usada
    Hidan no Aria: Shirayuki and Riko
    IS: Cecilia and Rin
    Zero no Tsukaima F: Siesta and Tiffania

    • Rizky Ichigo-kun JpAni-prince

      Why no Madoka

  • KiTA

    Urushihara’s artwork is great. I especially loved his somewhat risque work, “Ragnarock City.”

  • Lemon

    [Noel combines magic and black magic to create "magical magic,"]
    Yo dawg, I heard you like magic…

    • Rizky Ichigo-kun JpAni-prince

      Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha XD X”D

  • http://www.carpefulgur.com SpaceDrake

    Figured there’d be originals. I still don’t get why they’ve holding back the “Nanoha bomb” if they have it, or if they were really foolish enough to try doing this *without* securing that franchise. That franchise really inspired this entire concept in doujin circles and I’m not sure how much the intended audience in Japan will care about the title if those characters are absent.

  • http://www.santashi.com/ Santashi

    Ooh, that looks like Tsubasa is playable, too. Good-o.

    On a somewhat related note, I wonder if we’ll get another Higurashi character?

  • DyLaN

    Meru looks like she came frm IM@S XD

  • http://www.youtube.com/Lyonharvestmoonfan Eduardo Rocha

    I really hope this gets an english release…

    • ShadowDivz

      You can hope all you want, but it ain’t happenin’.

    • TheExile285

      sorry but as Shadow said, its never gonna happen

  • ShadowDivz

    It would be awesome if Mikasa was in this. Despite the fact i know she won’t be.

    • Rizky Ichigo-kun JpAni-prince

      Coming soon in 2014 Next Game bro I Agree

  • Testsubject909

    Satoshi Urushihara…

    Well… Now I want this game. And I just discovered this game today.

    So, odds of localization?

  • s07195

    Looking at the screenshots, at this rate, the enemies will mostly be reskins like the first Queen’s Blade game. >_<
