The release version of the title includes 9 playable characters from the television series The Benza. To make it even more authentic, it features over 280 lines recorded by the actual cast of the show, and presents a virtual Higashi Nakano for characters to explore giving fans a realistic view of the television location.
Music-wise, this game features 29 songs from varying artists, and 6 songs performed by the main cast. Whether you are a fan of The Benza or just learning about it, it is never too early to submerge yourself into the depths of strange Japanese television.
The combat system of this game does include a screen counter. It players like a classic JRPG, but brings in extra UI support in an effort to help non-gamers experience this title. The accessibility between the continued support and free-to-play model make this title easy to download and easy to play.
With such a large cast, the game has to compensate by allowing players to swap characters at any time. Customize a team, give them unique equipment, and prepare to go through a Benza adventure unlike any other.
The dialogue written in the game comes from the series creator, Christopher McCombs. This is an authentic Benza experience for everyone to enjoy whether they are fans of the show or just looking for some new JRPG action.
As for age, this game is good for most ages. Although it is a JRPG, keep in mind that Japan’s social standards are slightly less strict then American standards. This does mean that some possibly offensive content could appear within the title without the intention of offending.
The Benza RPG is available on Steam and iOS devices for free. Simply download the title and prepare to dive deep into a new epic and strange adventure.
