    Well, I always did consider myself a history buff~

  • Crazy_O

    World’s Greatest War Generals: Christopher Columbus.. Beethoven oO

    • SlickRoach

      Can’t wait for the Kanye West DLC. He was one of the most influential generals of this century!

      • leingod

        I’m happy for you and I’ma let you finish, but I though King Arthur was fictional?

  • Guest

    I’m guessing no sex scenes huh.

  • Seraph

    Jeanne D’Arc, Vlad III and Ishikawa Goemon confirmed for being Australian?

    • Mr_SP

      I know! What’s going on here!? No one ever looked at Wikipedia!?

    • As an Australian, find this very awesome!

  • Alexander Marquis Starkey

    This art style looks very similar to the artist of Fate Extra.

    • supervamp

      Just a little?

    • Will John

      Omfg that’s exactly what I was thinking

    • James McEneely

      No, Arco Wada was responsible for Fate/Extra. Oyari Ashito is Eiyuu Senki’s lead designer. He’s basically a pornographer.

      Like. Fore serious. Most of his art is straight up porn. Arco Wada doesn’t seem to have anything that is past borderline.

  • Marcelo G

    Gosh, what is with Japan and making female moe versions of Oda Nobunaga?

  • Warboss Aohd

    i really hope this company never gets ahold of the Warhammer license.

  • supervamp

    Ohhh snap the person who drew period

  • Laith Rem

    Impossible dream and yet I still vocalize it.

    Localization pls!

  • ronin4life

    How could they turn jean de arc into a Girl!!!

    ….what? She was already a girl?

    No, seriously, this sounds kind of interesting. Is it like Nobunaga, where these characters are your generals commanding armies or like Disgaea, FFT, ETC… if there is sense in this world, it should be the former.

    • ChiffonCake

      It’s the former. More specifically, it’s a lot like Sengoku Rance, if you’ve played that.

    • Kai2591

      LOL at those funny expressions.
      Stalin, huh.

    • Kai2591

      what game is this from again? seen it before but can’t remember…


        it’s from book. all the dictactor and war generals were turned into moe females
        the name of the book is Nyotai ka Sekai no Dokusaisha Retsuden

        • Kai2591

          oh right it’s from an illustration book. Saw it on Kotaku I think. thanks.

  • HellMuT

    I’m guessing they will remove all the H-scenes as it’s going to be on a home console.

  • MrTyrant

    Arthur is a girl and also a pop idol in this game lol

  • HERstory has never been so interesting ^_^ =P

    I hope this gets localized lol

    • Kai2591

      I see what you did tharr~

  • Richard N

    Now the only thing Japan needs to genderbend next is Jesus!

    Wait, don’t tell me…. it’s already been done hasn’t it…..

    • …Mary mother of God… What have just suggested?!

      • Richard N

        I think you mean…. Martin Father of God….

  • Ariobimo Wicaksono

    Anyone here want a female protagonist for this kind of game?

    • Yeah, I’m pleased about having a female protagonist.

  • JNT

    This is world history canon

  • fearlubu

    This actually looks pretty interesting. I hope NISA picks this up.

  • Croix Zapp

    Uh…… Beethoven?

  • >Jehanne Darc

    Jean of Arc was already a girl, why did they change her name… ._. And why is she from Australia along with Ishikawa Goemon? Lol. This is the kind of fragmented history I’d accept from Dynasty Warriors or a crazy game of Europa Universalis.

    But seriously, the art in this is nice and it doesn’t sound too bad from what I’ve heard. Hope it has at least a little chance of localization.

    • AoiShingo

      The name change of Jean of Arc is probably not a name change at all, just Japan having problem with writing foreign names…it happens quite a lot XD
      As for why she and Ishikawa
      Goemon are introduced as being from Australia in the OP…that’s because you find them when you go to Australia and not because they are Australian! And there’s a reason why they are there, but I’m not
      going to spoil it for whoever may want to play the game! ;)

  • Đặng Tấn Đức

    Merlin is QB!?

  • Tincho D

    Where the milfs?

  • Nas

    So… everything I learned about history was a lie.

  • Kai2591

    In Japan, ANYTHING and EVERYTHING can be MOE!

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    There’s really no excuse not to localize this considering how few strategy games were getting over here.

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    Mother F—

  • Hraesvelgr

    Every time I see this game, I wonder if Oyari Ashito just used a template when doing the character designs, because they all have the exact same head shape and size, regardless of their expression.

  • ChiffonCake

    Bah… everytime I look at this game, I’m reminded of how Tenco C&D’d the fan translation.

    Which is a shame, because it’s a really good game. Pretty much a more polished and prettier version of Sengoku Rance… and with worse h-scenes, too… but it’s still good.

  • > Napoleon
    > Nobunaga
    > Sun Tzu
    > Beethoven

    One of these people does not belong.

    • Servant BerserCAR

      hmm… looks like I finally can conquer British with Ludwig van Beethoven.
