MangaGamer has released Sengoku Rance, a grand strategy game inspired by Japan's Sengoku era.
Sengoku Rance takes place after the events of Rance VI. The series’ protagonist Rance decides to move to the nation of JAPAN to enjoy the local hot springs, and make love to the local women. His ambition leads him to becoming the ruler of one of the feudal states, from which point he moves on to unite the continent.
The game itself is a grand strategy game, with RPG elements, set in a parodistic version of Japan during the warring states period. The majority of the gameplay takes place on a map of the island nation, which is divided into provinces. Each province has multiple territories within, and the faction that conquers them all takes control of the entire province. The player’s goal is to defeat other houses by conquering their territories and resolving special events.
Each turn the player will make his decision based on a limited amount of Action Points, after which AI factions will make their moves in a random order. Combat is turn-based, with the player choosing which of his captains attack which enemy. Armies are limited in how many times they can attack per fight, and the combat ends when one side has no units left, or a set amount of turns have passed. While exploring dungeons, fights take a more RPG-like form, and commanders are no longer supported by their soldiers.
You can see the promotional video for Sengoku Rance, read about its key characters. and view sample screenshots below:
This game’s protagonist. He’s a warrior by trade.
Blessed with incredible talent, Rance could probably become a world-saving hero... But instead of wasting time on world peace, he only cares about enjoying himself.
Rance loves women and has sex with every cute girl he can. When it comes to getting sex, this brute will do just about anything.
A pitiful mage who Rance bought and puts to work on all manner of things. She cleans up after him, assists him on adventures, carries his things, sleeps with him at night, and anything else he makes her do.
The head of the Oda clan. Lacking in ambition, he hates war and tedious work. His predecessor made him learn how to fight, so he is technically strong, but Nobunaga’s hobby is cooking dango, and he often slacks off from his political duties to go run a tea house.
Nobunaga’s younger sister. She makes up for her brother’s lackadaisical attitude by staying on top of things. Kouhime even takes part in political work.
Nobunaga spreads the idea that she’s the hottest woman in Nippon all over the country, and word has even reached other Continents.
Nippon’s #1 kunoichi. Her talent is so great that she mastered most types of ninjutsu with little effort.
Suzume has assassinated over a hundred important figures, and not once has she failed a mission. She used to have rivals and enemies, but none of them could match her.
Everything is so easy for her that she tends to easily get bored and become dissatisfied.
Nippon’s strongest sword-fighter, also known as the Goddess of War.
She always stands at the front of her army and runs like the wind straight into the enemy’s formation, but virtually nobody has been able to stop her.
Female commanders from all over Nippon come to the Uesugi clan out of their love of Kenshin.
A princess from a small clan that was destroyed by the Ashikaga clan. Her brother and the other remaining members of the Yamamoto clan are being held hostage by the Ashikaga clan, forcing her to work for them as a commander.
The head of the Nanjou clan. Years back, in the test to decide the new lord of the Houjou clan’s territory, she lost to Souun Houjou by a large margin.
Ran is stubborn and hates losing, but she still loves Souun. (Souun and Ran are in a loving relationship with each other, but their personality problems keeps things a bit shaky there.)
You can purchase Sengoku Rance on MangaGamer at a promotional price of $31.45. The promotion ends on the 19th of September, at which point the game will cost $34.95
