Depending on how deeply entrenched you are in the Japanese gaming world, particularly with regards to Hyperdimension Neptunia developers Compile Heart, you may or may not have heard of Mugen Souls, the company’s unabashedly silly and notably fanservice-y JRPG.
The game debuted on Steam last October (thanks in no small part to localization company Ghostlight) to a mixed response, with most negative reviews criticizing the fact that the game was censored, removing a particularly lewd bathing minigame. Despite this, the game clearly sold well enough that Ghostlight today announced that the game’s sequel, the formerly PS3 exclusive Mugen Souls Z, will also be coming to Steam later this year.
According to Ghostlight, the sequel promises all the ridiculous damage-dealing, ludicrously high level caps, “Moe Killing” and peon crafting of the first and more, framed by an all-new story that sees Lady Chou-Chou and co. teaming up with the “ultimate goddess” Syrma to take down an ancient threat to the world.
There’s no specific release date yet, but the game will be coming to Steam “this year”.
