League of Maidens is a sexy 3D free-to-play arena brawler coming soon

League of Maidens gameplay

Out of nowhere comes League of Maidens, an upcoming 3D free-to-play online battle arena for PC and Mac with a fair bit of sexy in it. Imagine a crossover between Dragon Ball and any of the popular superhero universes such as DC Comics or Marvel and you should get the initial idea, but only with female characters and an adult tone to their design and customization options. Battles unfold between two teams of five with the ultimate goal being to destroy the towers guarding the enemy base and the main tower.

While played in third-person, shooting is similar to other games that use an over-the-shoulder mechanic and what impressed us the most so far is the lighting speed at which the maiden moves and how there’s something always happening in the arena, stuff such as jetfighters soaring the skies (and they can be destroyed), tanks moving around, buildings crumbling and explosions everywhere. The sense of speed is astonishing and the superpowers are rendered very well, giving the feel of being in control of a superhero. Some features that may not be implemented yet include vehicle driving, lifting cars and trucks (and flying with them) indoor combat and recruiting military assets. The private alpha currently running only includes PvE, with online PvP to be implemented later on.

The goal of the two-man team Maiden Gaming is to release the alpha version of League of Maidens this winter on Steam, but beta and full release time frames are still undetermined.

As usual with free-to-play games, the promise is that the cash shop will only sell cosmetic items like outfits, war maiden skins, asset skins and so on, nothing that should give you an advantage over players who don’t spend any money.

While League of Maidens may sound like a game made by/for horny kids, we were surprised by the potential and all the speed and destruction that is happening on-screen. It’s like an expanded version of Bandai Namco’s sadly ill-fated Rise of Incarnates, with larger arenas and plenty more depth. As for the bit where it’s only female characters and with plenty of eye-candy, we’ll let you be the judge of it.

Sign up for the alpha of League of Maidens here.

    I really liked how you can grab someone, fly, and start punching in the air and throw that person just like in the dragon ball universe.

    The movements and animations sometimes are out of place, tanks just disappear when they explode, but hey, its alpha, lets hope it turns into something good, it would be cool to see a battle between maids turn into something like “zod vs superman” or a dragon ball battle, destroying entire buildings and the city itself.

      Killertron: Thank you for your great feedback. Full disclosure? The zod vs. superman battle at the end of the first Man of Steel movie was a HUGE inspiration for the gameplay in League of Maidens. In upcoming videos we will feature the destructible tanks and buildings to resolve the disappearing tanks issue from the initial alpha gameplay video. We will also feature the ability to fly and grab someone and smash them into a building and continue the fighting inside of a building. Crazy but its actually already all in game. Very excited to show these new developments soon!

    looks good, needs some tweaking here and there, and some balancing perhaps. but it looks good, these 2 guys came really far and I hope they actually can make something of it, just hope they add enough non-buy outfits and some handheld weapons cauz this looks like the perfect game to create an awesome valkyrie!

    This game reminds me a
    lot of “Scarlet Blade” that unfortunately was closed, but I liked it
    very much, for the sensuality of the characters … And also for being
    an adult game and very unpredictable …
    I’m really hoping for the “League of Maidens” to grow …
    I’m crazy to play …

      @disqus_AvFgYehNPs:disqus Scarlet Blade does come up a lot as a reference when looking at the feedback. Although there are gameplay differences between the two games I can definitely understand the comparison. Thank you for your enthusiasm, support and interest in playing League of Maidens!

          @Exterminador: We haven’t posted system requirements yet but we will be posting system requirements on our website and on the steam page in preparation for the first alpha build. As far as a story/questing mode of some sort we’ve had some e-mails inquiring about campaigns within the game. At this point we are focusing on the MOBA aspect of the game but we do hear the inquiries and feedback on this issue. Maybe it could be something that we look into in the future.

    Fine, ill ask it, WHY JUST WOMEN?, you know that half the people that are playing video games are women right? Trust me even if you stated, and i quote ”

    While League of Maidens may sound like a game made by/for horny kids.” you acknowledge that fact that it is just a cash grab, cause sex sells for some reason. i rather you make a good game, than just adding the dirty stuff in.

    ~ill be the one to ask this question and take the hate, than some1 else ask it.

      I agree, I would love to have at least a couple male characters in the game for 2 reasons. 1 a more diverse roster, 2 eye candy for the other half of potential players. Gameplay looks awesome and unique enough alone to draw in players and I’m excited to feel it first hand. However I can’t say I’ll stay interested if literally every fight is just Hot Naked Woman vs. Hot Naked Woman. I say pull a DoA or a Skullgirls and add some interestingly designed males to the bunch and a handful of outfits for everyone so players can see what they want on their favorite character.

      Also PLEASE for the love of god add in native controller support. idc how hard it makes the game, it makes it more accessible for a larger audience. DBZ and Anarchy Reigns are great examples of good control schemes for a game like this.

        @badjab326:disqus Thank you for all of the excellent feedback and your suggestions. I know it is hard to believe but we really do take constructive criticism in account when making decisions about the future of the title. Also thank you for the suggestion about controller support as well.

        “Half of potential players” is a massive exaggeration. It’s no secret that this “half of gamers are female” line is entirely reliant on one or two specific types of games. This game is not a match-3 game or a farm sim (it’s a MOBA, which ranks pretty low on the list), so to suggest that devs are ignoring half their audience is disingenuous at best.

    • I’ll give my two cents. I think it’s a gamble and there’s clearly a market for it, if the game turns out to be good. My main gripe with the game right now – and thinking in long term – is the name itself. If in a year or two players begin asking for a male option (not characters, but customization options), the name “League of Maidens” becomes a problem. Either they risk a late name change and lose some of the “marketability” of the game, or they don’t add male options period.

      Anyway, it’s a gamble but it’s not the first of its kind. I remember the first Tomb Raider, and wasn’t it a gamble having a sexy female as the only character in a game? It did pay off. League of Maidens, we’ll see how it goes.

      tl;dr A Skullgirls move as badjab326 suggested would be the ideal, even if they still keep the League of Maidens name anyway.

      Why just women? Because we like the idea of a title that features all women. That and we also believe there is a market for it.

      Idea of all women is nice. It have it own unique theme. Add male would destroy it, as it destroyed in scarlet blade when devs added chaser.

        • They have destroyed men, and now women are the only ones left. And women usually like to bash one another, so…

    The idea of the game looks nice. But IMO devs should it bet everything on one card and add blood and gore. Something what will shock gaming industry. Last game like that you Bloodrayne and I miss it.
    And damn, animations need this fix. I understand That is alpha but still animations, this small blood sprays from hit box, not character body should be polished before it is public presentation.

  • I mean, I don’t give two shits about graphics but couldn’t they use a modern engine??

    Bad graphics/animations get lot of attention thus more player base.

    Meh ~
