The English version of Rance VII, known as Sengoku Rance, has launched on the MangaGamer store for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 platforms on PC. You can pick up a digital copy of the R18+ title in all its English glory for $34.95.
Alicesoft’s strategy RPG loses the traditional role-playing mechanics and goes for something bigger… something grander… something Rancier. The developers decided to turn the Rance series into a grand-strategy game, where instead of commanding a small party of anti-heroes you take command of generals and their armies.
If you enjoyed classic grand strategy titles, especially Koei Tecmo’s Nobunaga’s Ambition series, then the gameplay of Sengoku Rance will be right up your alley.
The highlight of Sengoku Rance is that you just don’t have a strategy game at the heart of the tale, but you also have the typical trappings of a visual novel dating simulator as well. As you help guide Rance across Japan to help Nobunaga Oda take over each region from competing houses, you’ll encounter lovely ladies, both willing and unwilling to fall for Rance’s unorthodox charm.
These sequences help fill out a bevy of R18+ encounters for the raunchy rascal.
You’ll have 30 different territories to conquer, a multitude of girls to woo, and lots of enemies of defeat.
You can grab a copy of Sengoku Rance right now from over on the MangaGamer store.
You won’t be able to find the game on Steam, however, especially since Valve’s taste police banned the Rance titles from appearing on Steam back in April.
Thank goodness PC gamers have more than one store in which to buy their titles from, otherwise it would have been pretty awful if there was nothing but Steam in the marketplace. Console gamers on the other hand, are beholden to the platform holders, which is probably why you won’t be seeing the Rance titles on a home console near you anytime soon.
