The big day has nearly arrived, and Mugen Souls will be released tomorrow on Steam, priced at just $19.99 with an amazing 40% launch discount. The launch discount will expire on the 29th October so make sure you hurry to the Mugen Souls Steam Store page to take advantage of this great deal, before it expires.
The DLC will be launched on the 29th October and will, like the game itself, come with a 40% discount lasting until the 5th November. We will also be including 30 items of DLC free with the game and you can find the full list in the previous blog post.
Since some of you have asked about the technical aspects of the port, I thought I’d let you know that the game is running at a smooth 60fps on my machine and I’m experiencing much reduced loading times from the console version although of course actual performance will vary depending on your set up.
In terms of gameplay I can say that the team here have been really enjoying it. The combat is faster and far more fluid than the Agarest series while still being turn-based and the wide array of mechanics do give you a lot of flexibility in how you approach battles. Whether you’re charming enemies into becoming your Peons using Chou-Chou’s different personality types, or blasting them into the air to create a Frenzy combo (earning a fortune at the same time), there are stacks of options available to you at all times. I’m also personally really enjoying the game’s sense of humour which is pretty unique! :) The wordplay and character interactions are often really funny and the game isn’t afraid to break the 4th wall in order to make a joke or two.
Regarding the much discussed issue of censorship in Mugen Souls, I just wanted to let you all know that we did ask Steam directly if we could ship the uncensored Japanese version of the game via their service and they told us, unfortunately, that we wouldn’t be able to do so. For that reason, we decided to convert and release the US/European PlayStation 3 port of the game which has the bathhouse mini-games removed.

There exists a small galaxy in the universe containing seven worlds, shimmering in seven colours... These worlds exist and act independently of one another. This has allowed them to develop and nurture rich, unique cultures. Then one day, a decree was issued... "I'm gonna make everything in each of these worlds bow to me!" – The Undisputed Goddess, Chou-Chou.
