Degica and IXTL are planning the launch of a Kickstarter campaign in August or September to localize the Muv-Luv visual novel series, the company announced.
The campaign, which promises a number of exclusive rewards and incentives for fans of the series, will focus on the localization and PC/Steam release of the first two titles in the series: Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative. Here are details about each:
Consists of the Muv-Luv Extra and Muv-Luv Unlimited story arcs:
- Muv-Luv Extra – Shirogane Takeru was living a peaceful life as a 3rd year high school student, with his childhood friend Kagami Sumika. However, one morning Takeru awakens to see a mysterious girl named Mitsurugi Meiya sleeping in his bed. Thus begins the start of a high school love comedy where Takeru will have to choose between his childhood friend and the girl insisting they are bonded by fate.
- Muv-Luv Unlimited – Shirogane Takeru finds himself stuck in a parallel world where mankind is on the brink of destruction after battling against alien invaders known as BETA for the last 20 years. Takeru soon finds himself enrolled into the United Nation force to fight these aliens and finds the parallel versions of all of his high school friends, with the exception of Kagami Sumika, who does not seem to exist. Soon he will have to fight to save mankind, and protect the girl he comes to love over the course of the story.
■ Muv-Luv Alternative
Three years after witnessing the tragic exodus of mankind, Takeru wakes up believing that everything that had happened was just a dream. The brief hope that he has at last come back to his world is dashed away as soon as he discovers that he is once more trapped in the parallel world of Unlimited. Restarting on that fateful day he first came here, will Takeru manage to use his knowledge of previous events to change mankind’s tragic future?
“Very happy for this chance to bring Muv-Luv overseas for the first time ever, and to present it fully localized to the fans,” IXTL CEO Takashi Nakanishi said. “It is great to bring this series to the numerous fans overseas in a format they can enjoy to the fullest.”
Degica will have a formal Kickstarter announcement press conference event at Anime Expo in Los Angeles on July 3, between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m., at LACC 303A.
