Monster Monpiece Doing Well; Compile Heart Apologize For Shortages


Compile Heart’s first PlayStation Vita title, Monster Monpiece, has been well-received, the company announced on their website this past weekend. Compile Heart shipped 27,000 copies of the game in Japan and they’re selling out.


27,000 copies sold at launch isn’t a large number by any means, but it’s good enough for Compile Heart whose Hyperdimension Neptunia games also tend to sell around 30,000 copies in their respective launch weeks.


Compile Heart apologize for the shortages and say they’ll be sending a new shipment of Monster Monpiece out to stores on January 30th. Their next Vita game is Holy Sorcery Story, a dungeon crawler slated for release in March.


So, what is Monster Monpiece? It’s a card-battling game with monster re-imagined as monster-girls and an “extreme love” system that involves rubbing the Vita screen.
