Idea Factory International has announced Compile Heart's card battle game Monster Monpiece is now available to purchase on Steam.
Monster Monpiece was originally released on PS Vita back in 2014. This card-battle game with light RPG elements offers layers of strategy in a world where grid-based battles are fought with a variety of cards that come to life. It won't include multiplayer support, but it will feature upscaled graphics for an amazing 1080p experience, as well as the full set of cards and artwork that were available for the game's original Japanese release.
Here's a story synopsis of the game provided by Idea Factory:
"God's hammer struck twice, punishing the world of Yafaniel below... In this world humans and "monster girls" live an uneasy coexistence. May Esperio trains to become a master of the monster girls alongside her two friends, Elza and Karen, but her world is shaken after an encounter with a stranger leaves Elza "Lost" - a dark affliction that plagues humans and monster girls alike. Now May must travel the world to get to the bottom of this mysterious sickness and save Elza before it's too late for her - and the world!"
Here are some of the game's key features:
