Mugen Souls Wikipedia
The main protagonist of Mugen Souls, Chou-Chou, plans to conquer the universe by subjugating the seven worlds it comprises, as she thinks the planets look pretty. Traveling from world to world with her trusty companion Altis, and loyal peon Ryuto, Chou-Chou aims to turn the heroes and demon lords of each world into her 'peons' (servants), saving the world from conflict in the process.
Gameplay revolves around exploration and turn-based, open-field combat (same as Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 gameplay), and the game also includes mini games and customization.
The game was met with mixed reviews. It holds a score of 58/100 on Metacritic and 56.14% on GameRankings.
Mugen Souls Z is the sequel to Mugen Souls, released in Japan on 25 April 2013, North America on 20 May 2014 and Europe on 23 May 2014 for the PlayStation 3. The protagonist is Syrma, a goddess aiming to stop an awkward ancient threat. Gameplay aspects include level caps of 9,999, large mecha, and billion-point damage.
