‘Seven Pirates H’ brings, ahem, ‘Booby Training’ to pass in May
Eastasiasoft has announced a release date for its updated version of the PS Vita RPG Genkai Tokki: Seven Pirates. The rebranded Seven Pirates H – which is coming to Switch with various “enhancements” in the gameplay department – is available now in Japan but will be released worldwide on May 12.
Self-described as a “Booby Training RPG” – and “a traditional RPG focused on exploration and discovery with a gigantic dose of added fanservice” – the new take on the 2016 original features various Switch-only elements that, according the official site of the game include additions such as “using L/R sticks to control things like Booby Training and Otton Charge” (touch controls are naturally also available) and rumble functionality for extra vibrations. “New flesh-colored swimsuits, Booby Training limit jumps and more” are also included. After? Apparently yes.
The game was released in Japan in February and is already available for import pre-order via Play in Asia (with the Limited Edition, below, limited to 4,000 copies and apparently already sold out), but a digital release in the West makes it easier than ever to get your hands on…er, we mean getting to grips with wi— no. Play this… video game. Yes.
You can see a trailer (age-restricted) on YouTube to get an idea of what to expect if you’re unfamiliar with the original RPG. Beyond that, we can provide official press information that dives into narrative detail, along with a handful of more family-friendly screenshots available below. I can’t say more accurately than that:
Join the young pirate Parute Kairi and the evil monster Otto on an adventure to locate the lost treasures of the Monsupi Sea! Determined to make a legendary name for herself, Parute sets sail with a magical compass and the help of new monster companions, but what begins as a wild adventure through uncharted islands gradually reveals something more sinister. Through their colorful encounters with rival pirates and townsfolk in need, Parute and company learn disturbing truths about the king who rules these waters, all leading to a confrontation that could tear their adorable crew apart!
As Parute, you’ll command your party of monster girls into battle against villainous enemies, exploiting weaknesses to gain the upper hand in turn-based combat. Adventure through the islands and ride Otton to reach secret areas, collect items, and upgrade your abilities as you progress! With the special “Booby Training” system, you can control the bust size of the all-female crew for stat boosts, bigger for increased power and defense or smaller for improved speed and agility!
The game will arrive in the West on May 12 for US$39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99 on the Switch eShop, with a 15% introductory discount valid for the first three weeks.
