The Apprentice Witch and Fluffy Friends

Update: Bumped to the top. Aksys Games has now made an official announcement, and it’s due out this fall. The official website is here.


Aksys Games is localizing The Apprentice Witch and Fluffy Friends for North America, a listing on Amazon has revealed. It will be known as “Moco Moco Friends” here in the west.

Moco Moco Friends made its way to Japan back in April. It’s a fantasy RPG where humans and creatures with mysterious powers known as Muppets coexist. In the game, players will find a comical story of a young girl who aims to be the Muppet master.

Here are some additional details from Amazon’s listing:

– Battle against your rivals, scavenge items, venture through massive dungeons
– Evolve your Moppet monsters and travel with your companions across the magical realm of Dreamt ropy
– Lead your Moppets to victory in turn based battles. Fight, befriend and evolve Moppets on your quest to banish evil from Dreamt ropy
– 120 types of Moppet monsters to collect
– Teleport to dungeons using the town portal/gate. The garden allows the player to grow crops or collect items

Amazon lists a tentative November 17 release date for Moco Moco Friends. You can read more about the game in our original report here.

The Apprentice Witch and Fluffy Friends is coming out in Japan in a couple of weeks, and a new demo has now gone live on the 3DS eShop. Check out some footage from the download below.

Nippon Columbia has announced “The Apprentice Witch and Fluffy Friends”, a “comical cute fantasy RPG” for 3DS. Nippon Columbia is publishing the game in Japan on April 23 for 4,800 yen.

The Apprentice Witch and Fluffy Friends is set in the world of Yumetopia where humans and creatures with mysterious powers coexist. Those creatures are Muppets, and the game tells a comical story of a young girl who aims to be the Muppet master by commanding Muppets. The player takes control of “the witch apprentice” – a young girl called Moko.

Moko’s classmates (other witch apprentices) also make an appearance. Although they compete with each other, they also offer support in a pinch. They provide important information, too.

Muppets can be found in dungeons and can later be raised. Battles are up to 3 versus 3. There are 120 types of Muppets, so collecting is one point of the game.
