A crossover game by Namco Bandai that features superheroines from ten different anime and manga franchises. It's confirmed that it will be for both Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita.The ten franchises and their characters include:
The very beginning of the game starts with Noel and Meru lost in a desert (though they change locations shortly after running into Claude). Jean also met Maron and Alice in the desert at the start of Queen's Gate. Going along with the above point, Noel also name-drops "Maron-chan" during the opening.
Meru's first free talk is basically this to Maron's free talk. Not only does Meru mention Maron by name, she talks about Maron's pursuit in becoming an idol (which Jean helped with in Queen's Gate), and how Meru strives to do the same with Claude's help.
Defeat Means Friendship: The trailers outright state that there's a system for recruiting the villains this way. Some have special conditions attached, such as requiring a New Game+.
Fanservice: W Impact illustrations and the CG in the final Free Talk for each girl are typically this.
Cosmetic Award: Unlike the Spiral Chaos games, since there is no relationship system, the Free Talks in this game are purely fluff and for unlocking C Gs.
Guns Are Worthless: Averted for a decent portion of the cast. Aria, Riko, Mion, and Rem are all proficient with pistols, and a few of the mecha girls wield various large arms and/or laser weaponry.
And then played straight in other parts. For instance, Rem's Super Mode drops the gun for a sword (and a Chainmail Bikini), and out of the Powered Armor wearing girls one of if not THE strongest damage output belongs to Hibiki and her rather... hands-on approach to fighting.
Heel-Face Turn: Let's just say that villain roster up there gets a lot less crowded as time goes on.
Improbably Female Cast: Not counting generic enemies, Claude is the only guy around. Even main characters like Ichika or Keiichi are nowhere to be seen.
Lethal Joke Character: Just like Jean in Spiral Chaos, Claude can rip through any enemy in pieces, coupled with some Soul Sympathy attacks from adjacent allies or by himself.
A few of the crossover characters who are non-combatants in their original series also qualify. These include Super Sonico, the Higurashi characters (to varying degrees; Rika is more of a joke compared to the others), Puchiko, and Siesta.
Also, Louise. Most of her moveset is her hilariously failing a variety of spells. Her strongest attack is just actually getting one right after a long pep talk from Siesta.
Luck-Based Mission: Anyone who says that they've cleared Stage 34 on their first time is a liar. You are on a stage where Chris is a neutral and thus you can't control her actions. To make matters worse, she decides to counterattack enemies instead of just defending and moving to a better position. You only have Noel with you at the start and get your allies on 2nd turn but good luck getting there.
The Medic: Claude is the main one, though Sonico can focus on group healing, and a few other characters have their own healing spells as well, like Siesta, Tiffania, Rena, and Satoko.
Noel's final attack mayremind players of Euzeth's Elyon Yeda Domar.
Skinship Grope: Both Noel and Meru have no problems doing this to each other to find out that they've switched bodies after falling down the stairs when Claude, dragged by J, bumps into them.
Spiritual Successor: To the Spiral Chaos games, since it shares the same publisher and programmer team (Tose). It borrows elements from both games, including stat breaking (as opposed to armor breaking), extra attacks (both the typical version and the new Soul Sympathy system), free stages, free talks, and more. Unfortunately, there is no sparring, nor are there any gal monsters to capture as before.
Possibly subverted in the sense that players must finish the game before they can view this.
There Is No Kill Like Overkill: To activate a W-Impact, the character must reduce the HP of an enemy to zero, then said character must reduce the Attack, Hit, and Speed stats to zero. Only then will W-Impact will occur which plays a mini-game where players must push buttons prompted in the screen. This allows characters to attack an already-dead enemy up to three times while also showing off portraits of various clothes that characters have worn in their home series (or new clothes for the Original Generation female characters). Completing a W-Impact sequence also gives a lot more experience and money, as well as extra items.
Tsundere: Aria, Louise, Kurumi, Chris, and Houki have a conversation with Noel which is nothing but this.
Wake-Up Call Boss: Most people can breeze through the first 27 stages thanks to a number of people that are really useful, but then stage 28 comes in and will kick your ass if you haven't taken the time to level up your other characters who are a forced deploy and you're up against Riko and Jeanne with their army.
We Cannot Go On Without You: Some stages require certain characters to be alive till the end of the stage. There are also some stages where it's required that none of the characters are allowed to die.
