Idea Factory has confirmed that it will be bringing Moero Chronicle Hyper to Nintendo Switch in the west next month. You'll be able to get your hands on it from 26th April.
Originally released without the 'Hyper' in Japan, this dungeon-crawling RPG has you fighting through dungeons, recruiting Monster Girls, and building relationships with them in order to solve the mystery afflicting the denizens of Monstopia. The game's press release asks, “how cute can a monster be?”, so you can probably see where this one's headed.
The Switch release has been remastered and is presented in HD, and also includes some new features. There are new, stat-boosting items for your party; an autopilot mode which lets players head to any coordinate of their choosing automatically; all original art and event CGs are included; and a new vibration function has been added for the "bumping scratch" session.
We've got lots more info for you below thanks to the very same press release:
Io is a simple young man with only one problem – he can’t talk to women! Any attempts at conversation are destroyed by his perverted mind, except when he talks to Lilia, his best friend and a Monster Girl.
Moe Monsters Moe Problems! - Recruit 50 Monster Girls, each with unique skills and traits, to fight for you! You’ll have to wear them out in battle first though!
Can I Kick It? - Build your relationship with each Monster Girl through special events, gift-giving, and even home improvement to increase their powers and abilities!
Trait Flexin’ - Strategize your 5-person party by keeping their Moe Traits in mind – when combined together, you can recover after battle, increase your party’s attack, and more!
Nothin’ Wrong with a Little Bumping Scratch! - Purify your Monster Girls and return them to their senses with “Bumping Scratch”! Find their points of weakness on their body and touch, rub, poke, or pick until they’re purified!
As mentioned above, this one will be available from 26th April. Pricing will be set at $29.99.
