The character designs in the game are based on the manga, the Materials Collection (preliminary sketches of all of the manga’s characters done by the creator, Naoko Takeuchi), and creative liberties to make the game closer to the creator’s vision than all other versions.
For starters, the Sailor Soldiers will all start with their “prototype” designs from the Materials Collection seen here:
And when the identity of the Moon Princess is revealed, shift to their more uniform appearance. (While retaining their unique accessories based on the manga/Materials Collection designs. Jupiter’s potpourri belt for example) Their hair and eye color will also change when they transform to give them a more disguised appearance.

Aeons ago, when the Earth was still one kingdom… A paradise of gods once revered as the pinnacle of civilization, was conquered and forgotten over the course of one fateful night. Under the influence of a Great Evil, mankind, seeking to gain the paradise for themselves, waged merciless war upon it and won… but at a price. The entire Earth was left in shambles and mankind was forced to begin its evolution anew from the beginning. It is said that the ruler of the paradise gave up her life to send the souls of the fallen to a new future, and to seal the Evil within the deepest regions of the Earth. And though the Evil would one day free itself from its prison, a new hope would rise from a mother’s sacrifice… and a Soldier would be born.
Blissfully unaware of the destiny that lies before her, Usagi Tsukino dreams of being Sailor V, the famous hero of love and justice who protects the dangerous streets of Tokyo when the curtain of night falls. Little does Usagi know that inside of her lies great potential; a power she must use to battle an ancient evil and a merciless witch bent on global domination. Everything that Usagi believes will be tested, but she cannot be afraid.
Her mission is to secure the lost kingdom’s Phantom Silver Crystal, the source of all energy throughout the universe, and unveil and protect the kingdom’s princess. Usagi’s journey will be hard, but she will not be alone. Fate deals her a hand of fortune and entrusts her with friends and guardians to help her along the way. Though they may argue and turn against one another throughout their struggles, their bond can never truly be broken. Only by accepting their past lives will they put a close to the dark events that led to their reincarnation so they can truly live again.
In her darkest moments, Usagi is saved by a mysterious jewel thief known as Tuxedo Mask, also looking for the Phantom Silver Crystal. Who is he, and why does Usagi’s heart race whenever he is near? Blinded by love and enduring the weight of the world on her shoulders, will she be able to fulfill her destiny?
It is only through strong faith, firm will, and deep love that she will succeed.
This is the story of the pretty sailor-suited Soldier of Love and Justice, Sailor Moon.
Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon: The RPG is a massive role-playing video game project recreating the entire story (mostly the manga’s story) of Sailor Moon. The game’s final chapter will be an original story arc revolving around Chibiusa and her guardians, the Sailor Quartette, in the future. Playable characters include all of the planetary Sailor Soldiers, the Sailor Starlights, and other main characters such as Mamoru/Tuxedo Mask. Some playable characters will be optional and only join the party under certain circumstances.
The game will be released by story arc in the following order:
• Dark Kingdom Arc
• Parallel Moons Arc
• Black Moon Arc
• Children of Eden Arc
• Infinity Arc
• Lover of Princess Kaguya Arc
• Dream Arc
• Black Dream Hole Arc
• Stars Arc
• Apocalypse Arc
The Parallel Moon, Children of Eden, Lover and Princess Kaguya, and Black Dream Hole story arcs are significantly shorter “in-between” story arcs, the first two being original storylines and the latter two being based on the manga and anime specials. The Apocalypse Arc is an original story arc that will take place in Crystal Tokyo a few years after the end of the Stars Arc and revolve around Chibiusa and her guardian Soldiers, the Sailor Quartette.
