Mugen Souls Z is heading west courtesy of NIS America

NIS America will be bringing Mugen Souls Z to North America and Europe some time in 2014, the company has announced. It was released in Japan in April. The Compile Heart-developed game features a free-roaming battle map, turn-based combat, and a level cap of 9999. NIS America says it will be editing “certain aspects” of the game “due to the sensitive nature of some content.”

Here’s how NIS America summarises Mugen Souls Z:

“Our favorite Undisputed God of the Universe, Chou-Chou, returns with her crew for a brand-new story revolving around the zodiac. Taking place immediately after the first game, you take control of the goddess Sylma, who meets Chou-Chou before the end of the first game’s events. Sylma is out to stop an ancient threat to her world that has recently awakened. 9999 levels of maniacal mishaps and ethereal adventures await Sylma, her crew, and hordes of Shampurus as Mugen Souls Z hits Western shores in 2014!”

I’m unsure what the “sensitive content” that’s being removed might be in this case. When the original Mugen Souls was brought over NIS America chopped out an interactive bath mini-game, much to the chagrin of fans.

Mugen Souls Z is currently only available on PS3.

Thanks, Gematsu.
