Those wishing to spend more time with their favorite characters will want to try Nendoroid Generation – a game taking popular 2-D females, making them chibis, and letting you intimately communicate with them.

An immediate key feature? All the character design are from Good Smile Company’s line of Nendoroid figures – including Cheerful Japan’s Gumako, Millhiore from Dog Days, Christina and Mayuri from Steins;Gate, tsundere loli Louise from Zero no Tsukaima, and a plethora of Haruhi characters. There’s even Marisa and Reimu from Touhou, alongside some mahou shoujos courtesy of Nanoha, Rin and Saber from Fate/Stay, and the ever-stylish Black Rock Shooter – all amongst an army of many other moe females.

Every character has their own special skills, costume and greetings. There are five modes in this game and all of them make it quite a title to remember. The plot isn’t much different than a typical manga story – the heroes versus bad guys, however in addition to its leading cast, the game features cute monsters, who similarly to the main characters, are adorable in every respect from facial expression to physical gestures, voice, and dialogue. This makes for a very enjoyable playing experience – and one even a little uplifting in spirits.

Secondly, the battle mode is actually quite innovative in the RPG genre. Each costume isn’t simply dropped from the monsters, one has to use a combo attack to “knock” the costume off the monsters. The costume design in the game is cute as well – though that’s not much a surprise considering everything within this game is filled with moe and cuteness.

A singing mode present allows one to watch these characters sing and dance. This is truly quite an amusing show as one can see some immensely popular and much loved characters, such as Steins;Gate’s Christina, going a bit out of character – or rather, just doing what she wouldn’t normally do in front of others. Disappointingly however, the player cant control the musical affair as it unfolds. Scoring for this segment is based on character’s personality and performance – overall making for a wonderful display, and again, one rather cute.

Besides those varieties of gameplay mentioned above, the player can also chat or engage in mini-games with characters.

Nendoroid Generation truly defines “moe” – delivering everything which the word encompasses as if an interactive guide to the term. This game is a project to celebrate the 10th anniversary of well-regarded figure manufacturer Good Smile Company and their Nendoroid toys – and they certainly do well to earn our further earn our appreciation atop the fantastic figures they create with this fun and whimsical game.

    I want this game so much now, I feel like I’m blinded by moe when I watch the videos. Also, I like the idea of playing with a cute little chibi version of Black Rock Shooter.
