Monster Monpiece Only Censored in the West
In Japan, its land of origin, Monster Monpiece is already available since January 2013. The trading card game was developed by the studio Compile Heart which is famous for its sex-heavy fan service. Recently, the game's release for international markets was announced and publisher Idea Factory is so kind as to inform potential buyers that it will not arrive in the West in its uncensored form.
40 of the 350 collectible cards will be censored. That is because some of those are on the border to pornography and because some of the depicted characters are considered to be "lolis" (implicitly underage girls). Idea Factory also provides the community with a list of censored cards:
The controversially discussed "rubbing" feature that is used to level up (and *uh* continually undress) the "monster girls" has made it into the western version without any alterations.
Also interesting: because of the different rating standards, the ESRB gave the game the "Mature" rating (violence, sexual themes, partial nudity) while the PEGI was a little more relaxed and found a "12" rating to be sufficient.
Monster Monpiece will be released in the 2nd quarter of 2014, both as retail and digital version for the Playstation Vita.
