Degica and Ixtl have now opened pre-orders for the English localization of Muv-Luv. And until its targeted release day in approximately 3 weeks you’ll be able to get a 10% discount as well as an exclusive wallpaper pack. Have a look at the Steam page here.
Even if you haven’t played the Japanese version of the game, fans of Japanese visual novels will surely have heard of the Muv-Luv series before. The current localization plans include the following three arcs: Extra, Unlimited, and Alternative. Whereby the latter will be about the same length as the first two combined. Currently you can only pre-order the first two arcs however, and we’ll have to wait for more news on Alternative.
Muv-Luv Extra will be a romantic school comedy game, in which you’ll play as high school student Takeru. He is just your average student when a girl Meiya suddenly enters into his life, claiming that the two of them are destined for one another. This is a sign for Takeru’s childhood friend Sumika that she has to act quick if she still wants a chance for his love. And what about his own feelings for her?
In Muv-Luv Unlimited his life takes another turn when he awakens one morning in a world not his own. The world is -different to his own- in war with alien invaders. A war that has been going on for decades. Yet the world is also similar to his own, with his house and school still in the exact same locations. He can also find most of friends in this world, even though the don’t recognize him.
