Monster Monpiece releases in North America and Europe in Mayon May 9, 2014 by I love Japanese games
We’ve covered moe, anime girl-rubbing card game, Monster Monpiece a fair bit in the past – mainly because, it’s really rather good. The central hook, outside the classic card collecting, deck-building and battling is the ability to power up your favourite cards by vigorously rubbing them and poking them.
The more powerful the cards become, the more scantily clad the girls in the images. Some people have suggested that this might be… unnecessarily sexual. I can’t begin to imagine where they got that idea from. That didn’t stop Idea Factory censoring the more… interesting… card images, much to the annoyance of people like me.
Still, there’s no denying that the game at the heart of Monster Monepiece is actually very good – and should not be missed. You can find out for yourself on the 28th of May for Europe and the 27th of May in the US. Not long to wait then! Do check out the huge amount of screenshots and art below!
