Mugen Souls Z is set for a physical and digital release in North America and Europe in 2014.
NIS America will take on publishing duties for both territories. Created by Compile Heart, Mugen Souls Z is the successor to the original Mugen Souls. When it was released last year, Mugen Souls became one of the most niche titles on the market, like several games published by NIS America. The title was a unique kind of RPG full of customization, the ability to deal massive (i.e. billions) amount of damage and a dash of pervy humor to round out the package.
Mugen Souls Z marks the return of Chou-Chou, the self-proclaimed “Undisputed God of the Universe”, and her crew. The game takes place immediately after the first and the story revolves around the zodiac instead of Chou-Chou’s quest to make everything in the universe bow down to her. Players will take control of the goddess Sylma who encountered Chou-Chou before the end of the first game. Sylma is on her own quest to defeat a recently awakened ancient evil that is threatening her world.
Mugen Souls Z will release exclusively for the PlayStation 3. While more details have yet to be announced, NIS America stated that the North American and European releases of the game will be edited due to some sensitive content. Similar edits were made to the original Mugen Souls which featured a bathing mini-game that was a little more than suggestive. Traditionally, content edits like this are made to ease localization and international release.
