So Far, The Only Dude In Super Heroine Chronicle Is An Original Character

By Spencer . June 23, 2013 . 3:30pm

Super Heroine Chronicle is a mashup of anime heroines, so it’s not like we were expecting a bunch of male characters. Namco Bandai’s strategy RPG has one male character though, Claude, who is a timid boy that lost his memory. He’s one of the three original characters made just for Super Heroine Chronicle.

Namco Bandai also posted screenshots of the anime heroines confirmed to be in Super Heroine Chronicle. The game is in development for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

  • Chiupon

    please tell me they don’t harem around him

    well, they are mostly lower ranked anime heroines so i wouldn’t be surprised.

    • Buttz

      It’s by the same people who did the Queen’s Blade Spiral Chaos games, so he’ll probably fit the same role Jean did in those games. The girls didn’t exactly harem around Jean either except in his fantasies.

      Now I wonder if he’ll be as broken as Jean was in combat despite being a “support” character.

      • s07195

        Perhaps the only attack he’ll have is ‘Tackle’! XD

  • Amnesiac protagonist again?

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Claude also jumps feet first into everything and is always there to support his friends.

      • Rishtopher

        lol I died xD

  • Xerain

    He lost his memory so he doesn’t remember… but he’s actually also a girl.

    • … or is s/he? Dun Dun DUUUUUUUN!!!!

    • Pandafilando

      Tsukasa ??

    • OH SNAP!

    • d19xx

      Dickgirl confirmed…

  • William Carpenter

    WOAHHHHHH, Koto from Kyousogiga?! Suddenly I’m interested!

  • Claude is most obviously Trap Material. No other logical reason to add him. Gotta cover all bases, you know?

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Should it be noted Claude is getting his ass kicked in both of those pics? He desperately needs the love — or at least the combat prowess — of his pseudo-harem.

      • Regardless of “Unwanted Harem” stereotypes, he will end up in “Trap” status. Mark my words, because Google Image Search will make sure of that! For, you see, you must be aware of Rule 35! And I don’t need to speak further.

        • M’iau M’iaut

          That appearance is made for shipping. No doubt.

    • Luke Blackwood

      Well, if they include trap fanservice, consider me sold xD

  • Nickie

    Hmm, buying Project X zone in hope more games (like this one and more popular ones like Digimon) get localized.

    Plus I love Satoshi Urushihara artwork!

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Why is Sonico crying as she destroys a f*cking city? At least Rena looks fu*king pissed off at the world.

    • MellowMadman11

      Don’t know about Sonico, but Rena is obviously pissed because somebody lied to her.

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Claude: I only have eyes for yoooou.

        Rena: (hack)

    • Brandonmkii

      It’s kind of her shtick. Clutzy girl falls down, breaks things, feels bad about it, etc. She’s not really a combat character or anything haha.

  • pekikuubik

    I know you want to reference games that actually got localised, but Ootsuka did only some really minor character art for Eternal Poison, along with a bunch of other people (Refugee Design, to be exact). A rather insignificant credit, since you don’t see his style.
    So I stand by my previous comment that you should reference Conception (and its sequel) instead, because that’s the game he was the main character designer for.

  • Lynx

    Jean 2.0. Called it. Can’t say I’m surprised. Even the description is similar. With that in mind, hopefully he’s as broken.

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    There’s a main character. I am pretty sure it’s not Claude. And yes, it’s got dating-sim like elements.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      just bcos there’s a male character? hmm I doubt it

      • CirnoTheStrongest

        No, because it talked about how the hero (player) took girls on walks and talked with them

        • Renaldi Saputra

          oh, I thought you’re talking about that Claude

          • CirnoTheStrongest

            Ah okay. Yeah, I don’t think claude’s the Main character. He COULD be, but I dunno. I feel like the Main character will be revealed a little bit later. They’re usually the least important character to reveal in a dating sim-esque situaiton

          • DesmaX

            C’mon, why would this have more than 1 male character? And he fits the “harem main character” archetype perfectly

          • CirnoTheStrongest

            Just the way it was worded in a Dengeki article makes me think it might not be him. And it’s not like there’s a shortage of eroge with male MCs and harem routes including traps >.>

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      cliches then yeah lol but you know whats going to happen to him, hes going to have a special power that saves the day in the end XD

  • Renaldi Saputra

    that male character doesn’t really prove that it will be harem..
    appearance is not promising to being harem-ed

  • Warboss Aohd

    wait, iz dat a Higurashi character in dose screen shotz?

    ‘ow da zog did dey get her ta not murder everyone in a disturbin’ manner?

    • Naw, they’re too adowable to kill. Rena’s going to take them home instead.

      • Warboss Aohd

        …..we iz talkin’ about da same series right?

        • M’iau M’iaut

          Rena is going to take the MC home — and eat him.

        • Those are how Rena’s catchphrases are translated in the English adaptations. :)

    • psycho_bandaid

      Rena’s a force of nature to be sure, but I think the other characters could contain her. Gasai Yuno from Mirai Nikki is the true OP yandere character.


  • Raze

    Maybe they will make guy from all the heroine universe become the villain here?

  • Ni

    That original male character is going to get beaten in the near future by each series respective harem master :p
    edit: It was a joke, sheesh

    • ShadowDivz

      Please, those guys aren’t harem masters. If they were really harem masters they would have nailed all those girls already instead of having some excuse/waiting for something to happen to stop the moment.

      Now Rance on the other hand….

      • Morricane

        Rance is a true MAN.

    • CirnoTheStrongest

      Digiko’s not really part of a harem. if anything she has her own harem ._.

      And Hibiki’s moreso in the same boat as Digiko

      The girl with the dream hammer isn’t part of a harem either (I feel bad for not remembering her name right now…)

      • Ni

        it was just a joke ._.

  • natchu96

    Well, he sure has the trap look for the only guy in the game.

  • Nitraion

    I wish that Akatsuki the Rogue hero is here lol

  • ShadowDivz

    I just need Rena on my team.
    She’s like the villager.

    • JohnNiles

      The original villager.

  • dragoon_slayer12

    I would love this stateside. It’s games like these I want to take up Japanese….

  • Buttz

    Also, can we get a release date already?

    August is already going to break my wallet. I need to know how much I need to put aside in case this comes out sometime this year.

  • Spider-Man

    Any yandere characters? I need to know…for personal reasons.

    • MellowMadman11

      Rena for one.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      So far ya Rena is probably the only full on yandy, or at least psychopath. That said, Aria, Dejiko, Louise, and the IS girl — whose name I forget — are all pretty violent in their normal day to day relations with others.

      • Spider-Man

        Thanks, looks like I found a new waifu.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    They should make more games with Di Gi Charat characters in them!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Claude was sucked into a cliche’ed harem full of hot lady from a bunch of anime. Weak, lost memory, and in a school uniform……yeah he fits well, you lucky bastard.


    It’s showtime!
