Dungeon Crawling ‘comedy’ Moero Crystal H is back and set to explode onto Nintendo Switch on 17 September.
Fans of monster girls and the tales of Zenox the “Lucky Pervert” can rejoice, Moero Crystal H is set to arrive on Nintendo’s hybrid gaming console this September. Released for western market by independent developer and publisher Eastasiasoft, this rather niche dungeon crawler is set to plunge weapons first into the darkest dungeons in order to retrieve the legendary Bra of Darkness. Stolen by an unknown ner do well, this object of immense power is needed to save the world, and all you’ve got to complete this quest is a group of monster girls and the ‘Panties of Light’.
Scratch An Itch?
If you’re as perplexed as I am then don’t worry. Originally released by Compile Heart and Idea Factory back in 2015 on the Playstation Vita, this is a decidedly Japanese title. One of the many Genkai Tokki games, this refresh and re-release of this version might bring back memories of the PS Vita rubbing game. Yep, that’s the one. For fans of the series who revel in the ridiculousness of it all, Moero Crystal H features deep turn-based combat as players explore a series of grid-based dungeons. You’ll be able to recruit more than 80 monster girls, mixing and matching their outfit combinations to modify their appearance and skills and grab loot to upgrade your team’s living quarters, all while you try to work out what exactly is going on.
I’m still not entirely sure whether this is satire or not but for fans of this monster girls series, this is something of a silly throwback to an earlier, maybe not more innocent, time. Get ready to adventure with an upgraded HD presentation, all previous DLC characters, English language subtitles, and the new “Double Scratch” feature, which updates the “Loving Scratch” mode so players can interact with and raise the affection of two monster girls at once. Yep, double scratch. Keep an eye out on gamespace to find out if I go full weeb and grab a review copy of this unique take on the JRPG.
