Ages of Amazones Has A Bunny Girl Named USA

By Eugene . November 8, 2013 . 2:37pm


Ages of Amazones has a search feature that’s a central part of its game core. While the main dungeon crawler RPG will focus on players trying to get off the prison planet they’re stuck on, foes will carry parts of the map or other hints that will lead to the mythical escape ship located someplace that will ferry you to freedom.


To get that piece of information however, you’ll have to first defeat them and then search them in “Climax Phase” mode. The best place to hide your secret note is supposedly someplace on your body, what with all the odd high security measures and deathtrap dungeons that make up the prison planet.


To that end, USA-chan is in the game, reports Dengeki Online. While most would be forgiven for thinking that means the good ol’ United States, the reality is that’s the name of the bunny girl above. In Japanese, usagi means rabbit. Bunny –> Usagi –> Usa-chan. You can facepalm now. Arc System Works have shown off a boatload of the foes and their own “Climax Phase” sections, so check them out.

    …….and people say Seran Kagura is bold lol

    • Shady Shariest

      My thoughts exactly.

    • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

      So Ishan was JUST expressing his disappointment in MQL’s “T&A” policy where recent games apparently contain and use fanservice for the dominant purpose of driving sales.

      And now Siliconera gives us this – pictures and screenshots characters with questionable appearances posing under the context of a “Climax Phase” system – slapped into our (readers) faces.

      I don’t about this. I really don’t.

      • TheExile285

        You do realize that: News =/= Opinion

        AND that this article was posted by Eugene and not Ishann

        • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

          Wow! Didn’t know that there can be different opinions within the Siliconeran staff! Interesting indeed

          • Ferrick

            … please tell me you’re not serious and just acting the part of your handle name

          • When the inclinations of a newspiece and Isshan’s opinion coincides, it’s “bias”; when they don’t, it’s “inconsistency”.

            Some buggers just can’t live without complaining.

          • Ferrick

            pretty much, there’s always that “one guy” that sparks the fire of complaining when there’s nothing really that important to complain about

        • Who the author is doesn’t matter, since all articles go through an editorial process regardless of who writes them. But yes, news and opinion aren’t the same thing, and we make sure to keep those very separate.

      • Rohan Kishibe

        Does “T&A” Stand for Tits and Ass?

        • British_Otaku

          Either that or Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy… It could go either way.

          • Vash bane

            not going to lie … I had to search up those words because I never heard them before

          • ShadowDivz

            no shame in that.

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            It stands for TA-KA-KI.

          • British_Otaku

            It’s a stretch, but I’ll buy it. >_>

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Hmm i can’t see this being bold.

      • TheExile285

        ……….did you not see the Tenshi pics?

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          Mhm,if that’s all they have going as bold then I’ve seen worse. It looks nice though

  • Derek E Nay

    Climax mode ACTIVATE!

  • So this means it’s coming to the USA right? lol =P

    Loving how the characters look :3

    • Pheria

      I wish, and I hope.

        Man, you sound just like me.

    This game has every single fetish!

    • Arrngrim

      Needs more tentacles imho.

      • British_Otaku

        Final Boss confirmed?

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        No thank you. Go home fujoshi.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    USA-chan sounds so cute~ ^_^”

  • Cody

    Wouldn’t be so creepy if games like these actually had gameplay.

    • British_Otaku

      It does have gameplay in the dungeon crawler field (exploring blank maps and turn based RPG battles) with some of this on the side which you could consider a fast paced puzzler (it felt like there was a limit last I played the demo)…

      I’m curious what other “games like these”, you were referencing.

      • Cody

        Neptunia, Senran Kagura… bullshit moe-fests with mediocre-at-best “gameplay.”

        • infernalmonkey

          So you don’t consider RPGs, dungeon crawlers and beat ’em ups as genres of gameplay. Okay then.

        • FlyingPony

          Well, not every game will reach the top-tier of Tekken quality or FF7 quality.. of course the gameplay, while is still there is (unlike your claim) will never topped the tops those two.. hence average.

          Well, its a brand new game, don’t expect any deeper gameplay, it took many installment for game to nail its trademark and wht the best gameplay for the game.

          Frankly, I find the moe fighting game as refreshing, I’ve seen enough fighting games contain super serious people (Tekken,Street Fighter) or RPG that set in medieval/futuristic setting with the usual plot..

          Anyway, that two at least bring something new, Neptunia with cute girls in ridiculous weapon with colorful world and Senran Kagura, consist many type of girls (Tsundere, Moe, Yandere, etc) fighting each other. While there is nothing much added.

          Besides, its not like this kind of game made it into market so often, its very rare to find all girl moe fest game compared to the 100th COD, 5th of Elder Scroll, 13th Final Fantasy and so on.

          • Fitzkrieg

            Not to sound rude, but…
            >Top-tier gameplay
            Pick one.

          • Testsubject909

            I was wondering about that.

            FF7’s gameplay is not top tier. It’s good, but not a top of the echelon level of great.

          • Fitzkrieg

            Pretty much. FF7 is highly overrated, IMO. It’s a good game, to be sure; but it’s not the immaculate piece of artistry that everyone seems to hype it up as.

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Senran Kagura is a brawler.

            Like Code of PRincess or Muramasa

        • British_Otaku

          Neptunia is an RPG of some sort, no idea that having cute character is distinct enough to ignore that it functions much like your Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy.

          Senran Kagura in my experience is a decent enough action game series which can rip you apart which you don’t think about your movements. >_>
          I can’t speak for Neptunia as much as SK, but the “moe-fest” isn’t conspicuous enough that they overshadow the gameplay.

    • Suicunesol

      It does have gameplay. You touch em with your stylus/finger

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        I think you’re thinking of a certain game on the Vita

        • British_Otaku

          Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus? Unless, it has something more than dragging your fingers apart to use Yin mode, it isn’t anything on this game… Ages of Amazones is the Heavyweight Champion of Touch Em With Your Stylus/Finger Em Up games.

          Even Dead or Alive on the Vita had something which seemed like more than a button input to activate a mode.

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            I mean the visual novel touch up game.
            The serious hardcore one.

          • British_Otaku

            If it’s on a console or portable and by extension rated by CERO, it can’t be that hardcore… >_>

            And why didn’t you correct me and name it outright?

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Im pretty sure its AO. Im not naming it because the Siliconera Shades would pull me down under

  • LightGenx

    I like the cow..

  • Flandre Scarlet

    Now where’s my Japanese 3DS…

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Chrom took it. He wanted his blue bunnies and dragons back

  • Tom_Phoenix

    “Bunny –> Usagi –> Usa-chan.”

    That makes sense, but it doesn’t explain why they capitalised Usa.

    • Just Tim

      Must be a vague reference to playboy bunnies. :p

    • 324234

      Without the star she’d be red white and blue, and she’s holding /a burger and fries/.

      • Testsubject909

        I’ll be quite honest, upon first seeing her. I didn’t really see anything that felt like it was trying to reference the USA.

        Fries and burgers just means food services which are found everywhere.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    This game is pretty awesome. Only complaint is that the battle system feels kind of slow but at least they let you skip animations. Definitely getting it upon release.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Wait what? How’s the Crawling portion?

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        Dungeon Crawling portion is standard dungeon crawling. Encounter rates aren’t through the roof thankfully.

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          How are the environments? Have you played Unchained Blades?

          • British_Otaku

            I’m intruding but I can offer some comparison to Etrian Odyssey as I haven’t played Unchained Blades… >_> The environments are fairly well done as far as detail goes, but blue and gray prison area is the only setting available in the demo, so it doesn’t stick nearly as much as the floors in EO I would say, but I’m making a call before I see other ones.

            The game or at least the demo directs you pretty heavily with an exclamation mark on the map when you get close to a story point (I guess the game is at least letting you know where to avoid till you are done), some of those marks activate cutscenes a step or so before you get there so I wouldn’t necessarily want them. The map details things as you go along instead of having to draw that there is a button, information prompter (yes, there are around, I ignore two fold as I don’t understand stuff that isn’t voiced and I think I’m getting enough guidance already from something in the same genre as Etrian Odyssey) and so on.

  • Jettythesunfish

    USA! USA!

  • British_Otaku

    “The best place to hide your secret note is supposedly someplace on your body, what with all the odd high security measures and deathtrap dungeons that make up the prison planet.”

    Oi, pockets and stuff are very reliable especially when the alternative is just leaving them in a chest for the video game protagonists to open and you are the prison guards.

  • Audie Bakerson

    “Ages of Amazones Has a Bunny Girl Named USA”

    Who will never come to the USA.

    • Bigabu Beaze

      Don’t jinx it man.

    • Testsubject909

      Well the only reason she’d be called USA is because of the word Usagi which means bunny.

      Just saying for those of you who have absolutely no idea what the word bunny is in Japanese and might’ve thought that it was actually a reference to the USA.

      • Audie Bakerson

        It’s an intentional pun (it’s in all caps romaji, not うさ)

        • Testsubject909

          Aye, but it feels as though it doesn’t hurt to repeat this until everyone gets it.

  • leingod

    I’m not sure if I’d actually want to escape a prison with girls like those. I mean, look at Tenshi O_o

    • Vash bane

      who wanna bet rule 3… um never mind
