The First Hour: Penny-Punching Princess
In Nippon Ichi Software’s new release Penny-Punching Princess, players take control of the titular Princess and use the power of money to do battle with the minions of the Dragoloan clans. Using a top-down brawling system, the Princess earns money from defeating enemies and can also squeeze coins from them by stuns. Using her magic calculator, the Princess can bribe enemies and environmental objects to join her against their former allies, which will be necessary as the combat is tough and enemy numbers overwhelming. Players develop the Princess’s stats outside of exploring levels by bribing specific enemies and objects to create magical Zenigami Statues back at her home castle. You can watch Andrew (@playcritically) play through the first hour of this sardonically humorous brawler below.
