    "Ninja Studio, the creators of the Izuna games, flirted with the concept of a cosplay system in a strategy RPG with Tactical Guild. Now the idea is being used as the core system of a game. Tactic Slayer is a “cosplay tactics simulation” game in development for the Nintendo DS. Dressing your characters increases your stats in one of four categories: sexy, cute, wicked, and health. I’m not sure what leveling up sexy does, but it should improve your effectiveness against these marshmellow monsters in someway. Aside from the cosplay core Tactic Slayer is your run of the mill strategy RPG with a turn meter on top. This sounds like just the kind of wacky game Success would publish, but D3 Publisher is taking the job and releasing it in Japan this winter. A North American release hasn’t been announced and with cosplay as the game’s central theme I wouldn’t expect one."

    I half expected Atlas to be the one doing this and not the Isuna guys. Weird. I wonder if that'll be enough to make it stand out though. And I do agree, how the hell would Cute help you in a battle? How I ask!?

    Doesn't the term "cosplay" imply that you dress up as a videogame character? Wow, talk about recursion: a videogame where you dress up to look like a character from a videogame. I'm sold.

    That's what everyone thinks it means, but in general it just means dressing up as a character in general (even a made up one) and just acting like your character rather than being you. Japan cosplay is serious business.

    I'd try it just for the pure WTF factor.

    Well...uh... maybe if you're cuter, they'll hit you for less damage (so it would be like defense...) and maybe sexy will make your attacks...er... sexier, and therefore stronger? o-o

    Thanks for clearing that up! So cosplay is kinda like larping (live action role playing), but without the strict rule set?
