PQube have announced that they have teamed up with visual novel developer itxl to bring the PS Vita versions of Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative to both North America and Europe this summer. The release will include physical and digital releases for both titles. The muv-Luv series is among the most critically acclaimed visual novel series out there and is also one of Kickstarter’s biggest visual novel success stories. Both Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative are currently available for PC with the Photonflowers and Photonmelodies fan discs still to come.

Here is the press release and announcement trailers via PQube:


PQube (Bristol) 14 February, 2018 – PQube and ixtl are pleased to announce that both Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative will be released in North America and Europe on PS Vita – both as Physical and Digital releases.

Muv-Luv, which contains both the ‘Muv-Luv Extra‘ and ‘Muv-Luv Unlimited‘ storylines, is available on PS Vita, while Muv-Luv Alternative in the second PS Vita release completes a trilogy which is widely considered to be among the finest experiences the Visual novel artform has to offer.

Following the exploits of Takeru Shirogane – a young student caught between the affections of his childhood friend and a mysterious heiress – Muv-Luv seems like a simple romantic story. Nothing could be further from the truth however, as the Muv-Luv story soon become an epic sci-fi adventure pulling in some of the most exciting elements of the mecha genre, parallel universe and time travel.

At over 150 hours play time, Muv-Luv represents one of the true powerhouses of the Visual Novel genre and a story that demands to be experienced. Both PQube and IXTL are hugely excited to help bring the complete mainline Muv-Luv saga to a wider, international audience.
