Super Heroine Chronicle Assaults Us With Special Attacks

By Spencer . January 24, 2014 . 12:40am

The best part about strategy RPGs like Super Robot Taisen or Project X Zone are the over the top special attacks. Super Heroine Chronicle has those in spades. Watch Hibiki Tachibana from Symphogear give a robot a beatdown and Louise Francoise from The Familiar of Zero chase a monster down with explosive magic.


Super Heroine Chronicle comes out on February 6 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

  • Can’t wait :3

  • Prinny Dood

    Man I hope this gets localized :-)

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    This game looks awesome!

  • megaten666

    You won’t decieve me anymore, girls of Higurashi. You can smile all you want, but deep inside, you’re just a bunch of sadists. I must make a team that consists them and have them under control all the time… just to make sure they won’t run amok :D

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Super sonico killed me omg. Her manager is always protecting her

    • fyi1191

      Her manager is an awesome bro. Not like those other idol managers.

  • Fitzkrieg

    I will consider getting this if Kill la Kill is added.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      mostly they include old anime heroines, maybe no chance for the recent new one like Kill la Kill’s Ryuko

      • Phoenixian Sama

        Pretty sure Kill la Kill will get into the inevitable sequels that this is sure to spawn.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          I don’t know.. I don’t think there will be a sequel of this
          this is just a collaboration game.. maybe you’re expecting like super smash bros?

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            What do you mean? Technically this is like spirtiual successor to greens gate considering queens gate was an anime heronie crossover mix with queens blade and this is just straight up random anime heronies so if not a sequal there are sure to be more crossovers like it

          • Renaldi Saputra

            I mean, will be there a super heroine chronicles 2? I don’t think so.. Namdai mainly focus on SRW on a collaboration game

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Yeah but banpresto is another story

    • J_Joestar

      Gainax should just have a SRW-type game of all of it’s own series.
      you could have characters like Mahoro, Nono, Ryuko, Panty & Stocking, then Eva-01, Gunbuster, and Gurren Lagann backing them up.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        but in a whole new SRW game, there’s gurren lagann and even FMP

        • J_Joestar

          well i meant their own separate game, like how Gundams are usually in SRW but they have their own G-Generation game series that is purely Gundam.

          anyways, there is still no Nono in SRW yet despite them having human sized characters before >_<

      • Fitzkrieg

        No mention of Kanti? Disappointment.

        Also, Kill la Kill isn’t done by Gainax, it’s done by Trigger.

  • I want this localized, but I doubt it well. *sigh*

    • pimpalicious

      I’m a bit more hopeful for it after Aquapazza made it over but I won’t be holding my breath either.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        well, aquapazza was done by atlus, when this is by namco bandai, so I don’t think it will be localized just by the fact that aquapazza did got it

        • pimpalicious

          That didn’t stop Atlus from localizing Endless Frontier or NISA with Time and Eternity. I meant by the anime licensing issues, but I’m not sure if all the shows in this game are from the same studio or not.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            nope, and mostly they’re old anime..

    • Brandonmkii

      I plan to import it. Games like these, well, you don’t need to care about the story.

  • crackerjacker

    That Twin Angel attack, looks eerily similar to how Gravion does things. Or with the new SRX HTB Cannon.

  • fairysun

    Too many panty shots for my taste.

  • Gigan22

    My Vita needs this. Desperately. With all of the out-of-left-field localization announcements, I have high hopes this will get localized as well.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      this is Namdai and this is a collaboration from many anime series.. so licensing might be their main problem.. and I don’t think most of the heroines here are popular in the western (especially the old one)

      • Gigan22

        That’s what I’m worried about as well. Though if that winds up being the case, I’ll happily import it and fumble my way through.

      • zferolie

        Well, they did license Project X Zone…. so maybe they can get the rights for this… but it is a lot more companies they need to talk to.

        Still, if they want to push the vita more in america, this is a great title to get the anime and JRPG crowd.

        • J_Joestar

          well it is mainly just 3 companies for PxZ and all video game companies too, Western anime/manga license owners are notoriously harder to work with unless they are nearly all under the same owner i won’t expect this to get over.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          as Joestar said, note that this is mostly using heroines from anime, not games.. so, well. licensing an anime was very hard to do, just like SRW (though an SRW game got localized, but didn’t sell well)

      • Anesia Hunter

        you’d be surprised how many people would know all of these characters. i know a lot of anime fans around my age and older know all of these characters and the animes they came from.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          not many, except the recent one like aria, sonico, and some Infinite Stratos chara.. the others? nope

          • Anesia Hunter

            who the heck wouldn’t known di gi charat characters, zero no tsukaima, higurashi no naku koro ni, etc? it’s like never hearing of sister princess or pita-ten.

            however, i can see not many knowing kaitou tenshi twin angel. i hadn’t even heard of it until 2008 or 2009 while i was looking around for saori sakura songs.

            i wish they included tokyo mew mew, shugo chara characters or even mermaid melody. it would have been fun to see them.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            there are many ppl who didn’t know di gi charat, symphogear, and many niche old characters

  • SlickRoach

    Tentacle monsters? I’ve seen enough hentai to know where this is going. I hope this game gets localized…for research purposes, of course.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      maybe importing?

  • Learii

    this game should localized since 3DS got project x zone but vita got nothing like that before

    • J_Joestar

      well all the rights to those characters were at least from 3 video game companies that have some history/presence in the west, the rights to these characters are a lot more spread out and if there are any western license holders to them, they are typically harder to get together for collab stuff.

  • sorenman2

    I don’t recall what anime the animal ear girls are from.

    also lol the girls from Aria the Scarlet Bullet haven’t seen them in a while probably should pick up my untounch LN copy of volume 7.

    • NanbuKaguya

      Di Gi Charat. Pretty Old anime that started more then a decade ago.

  • Kayriss Wins

    What was that at the end? pregnancy tests? lol
