Square Enix and Idea Factory have something in common. Both companies have a dating sim-like game with characters from the Arthurian legend. While Princess Arthur puts you in the shoes of a girl who becomes king and can date different knights, Yui-Itsu-Sei Million Arthur turns the Lancelot and other knights into women.

 

From left to right we have, Gawain, Lancelot, Arthur, Tristan, and Mabinogion.

 

In Yui-Itsu-Sei Million Arthur players set out to explore uncharted areas, fight monsters, and make Arthur stronger. As Arthur levels up, the game’s story gets unlocked.

    Oh Square.

  • surakian

    My disappointment knows no bounds.

    • DyLaN

      You do know tht this is pretty much the norm in japan and SE is no stranger to card games/social games?

      • surakian

        Of course I do, and I play these kinds of games quite frequently depending on my interest in them. The problem is that this comes at the cost of less console game developments because they see a market in iOS/social games and a decline in console game sales. Rather than trying to fix that problem by releasing quality titles (with reasonable budgets), they want to create more iOS games when this is the last thing their core audience wants.

        These are games I expect from niche companies, but not Square Enix.

        (But really I just want that otome Type-0 game Tabata joked about.)

  • wererat42

    One would expect something like this from IF or Compa, but Square…
    Come on.

    • fairysun

      Lol, agree !

  • animedemon

    i wish this came out in English anyway

    • Renaldi Saputra

      idk, if this is Kemco, it can come easily in English..
      no clue about Square Enix

  • AoNoise

    One of them looks an awful lot like Arturia.

    Not that it matters at this point. A harem game

  • CirnoLakes

    Hyper realistic console games, and fanservice-y anime mobile games.
    Not much of an in between.

    I’d honestly like to see some epic anime fantasy games out of Square Enix.

    • biskmater

      Like Bravely Default, perhaps?

  • darkbartz

    Lancelot looks like Saber from FSN, that’s pretty ironic, isn’t it?

    • Luke Blackwood

      Took the words straight out of my mouth xD

    • burnfist23

      Yeah, and most depictions of Lancelot I’ve seen have black hair. I think this is first black-haired King Arthur I’ve seen.

    • Audie Bakerson

      A shame Arthur doesn’t look like Saber. If it was that way, it would be something OTHER than uber-generic harem crud.

      • Firekitty

        Yuri generic harem crud?

        I wish we could have this Arthur and the Knights from Princess Arthur XD.

  • Himiko

    All of my waifus. <3 Shall enjoy this.

  • Pekola

    Does anyone know if Square has any plans to release Million Arthur in English?

    They’ve already sent the game over to the Vita. And considering how sucessful the game has turned out, I’d figured they might want to cash in on that.

  • Ban The Jackass

    Why, Square Enix…. Why?

    • Testsubject909

      To what? The genderbending? The fanservice/pandering? The iOS/Android game?

      Specifics!

      • Ban The Jackass

        …. Everything.

        • Testsubject909

          Mkay.

      • https://twitter.com/Ni_Go_Zero_Ichi Project 2501

        D. All of the above.

  • $7573679

    I must say though, even if Lancelot has a famous sword, I would at least expect her side specc to be that of a lance user. ^_^

  • TensaiBaka

    Moe,moe!

  • J_Joestar

    So will there be a subplot where if you romance a girl other than Lancelot, then Lancelot will swoop in and “steal” her from you? although if you play your cards right at that point… heh heh heh…

    • VitaminC

      Lancelot wants to do a mana transfer because you can’t supply a sufficient amount.

  • artemisthemp

    Mabinogion looks like Esta from Atelier Esta and that guy.

  • Warboss Aohd

    I can hear da Imperium Inquisition comin’……..betta get da Waaagh outta ‘ere before dey call an’ Exterminatus.

  • harmonyworld

    effectively sexist, complete with sucky armor that isn’t practical in anyway~

  • Dexward

    So what happens to Guinevere? Does she still get NTR’d by Lancelot?

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Leafy_Cam Leafhopper

    The “Just replace the cast of historical or mythological figures with cute girls” Japan is doing lately is kind of…getting annoying or stale. I dont know its something.

  • SgtFrog

    TouMAN what are you doing there being the king

  • Testsubject909

    That’d be enjoyable.
