Mugen Souls sees a short delay and an 'overwhelming' trailer


Mugen Souls, NIS America's latest turn-based RPG, will arrive in North America slightly later than planned. Originally set for September 18, the Compile Heart-developed game is now due on October 16. The European version will be released on September 28.

The latest trailer highlights Mugen Souls' battle system, which combines turn-based combat with free movement. It looks complicated and, as the trailer itself admits, overwhelming. You need that kind of power if you intend to conquer seven universes.

About the game
There exists a small galaxy in the universe containing seven worlds, shimmering in
seven colors... These worlds exist and act independent of one another. This has
allowed them to develop and nurture rich, unique cultures. Then one day, a decree
was sent out... "I'm gonna make everything in each of these worlds bow to me!"
– The Undisputed God, Chou-Chou
