Mangagamer announced that the Alicesoft developed adult visual novel-RPG, Rance 5d and Rance VI, will release in the west on December 23. Yes, that’s two days before Christmas day. This news is sure to excite eager western fans with anticipation of going on an interesting adventure over the holiday.
Each game features the notoriously hated, but at the same time loved, main protagonist, Rance, as he goes on adventures with his “slave girl”, Sill.
The bundle of both games will be sold for $34.99 on the MangaGamer webstore (be aware that the link goes to an 18+ website).
The publisher details each game further:
In Rance 5D, a standalone episode in the series, Rance goes adventuring with his slave girl, Sill, and his pet, Athena 2.0, in order to recoup all the money he’s blown! Their travels lead them down a dungeon where they get lost and wander into a mysterious town full of youkai! Together they go dungeon crawling, face dice battles, capture female monsters, recruit and train the monsters they capture, all just to try and get home! There’s loads of gameplay with battles and movement determined by dice rolls, while strategic management of time, skills, and item drops can help affect your odds–no two playthroughs will be the same in Rance 5D! This fun, lighthearted title in the series makes a great intro to Rance before delving into Rance VI!
In Rance VI, Rance travels to the magical Kingdom of Zeth with Sill to take a job. However, In Zeth, mages are considered superior and all others treated as second class citizens! Indignant at his imprisonment and the discrimination turned toward him, Rance joins the resistance to lead Zeth to a revolution! With just cause on his side, Rance sets out to punish the evil mages who scorned him and expand his ever-growing harem! Jam-packed with gameplay, Rance VI is a full 3D Dungeon Crawler, with over thirty dungeons full of different monsters to face and events to trigger!
