Valkyrie Drive North American release confirmed by PQube


UK publisher PQube has confirmed that Valkyrie Drive:Bhikkhuni will be coming to North America and Europe in 2016. This announcement comes off the recent leak, where European retailer Shopto previously announced a western version of the game.

For those unfamiliar with Valkyrie Drive, the game is developed by Marvelous, better known for their work on the busty Ninja Girl brawler Senran Kagura. The game feels very close to the Senran Kagura, however the plot involve a virus that turn people into weapons when… “Aroused”… Players will take control of different teams of girls who become more powerful as their relationship increases.

In case you thought I was making that up, here is a statement from developer Marvelous.

Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni is the OUTRAGEOUS new project by the creators of Senran Kagura that combines high octane busty brawling and an awesome aerial based combat system with pleasure based weaponry and destructible clothing. This is the cheeky third person action game you have been waiting for ALL your life!

In the world of Valkyrie Drive, a group of girls have been infected with the mysterious Armed Virus. When infected, the girls either become Extars who transform into high powered weapons when sexually aroused, or Liberators who after triggering a transformation, have the power to wield the Extar’s weapon form, the Liberator Arms.

Yep, this game has everything. High Octane Busty Brawling, Aerial Combat, Pleasure based weaponry, Destructible Clothing and people turning into random weapons when Sexually Aroused.

Marvelous. Don’t ever change.

Of course the information about the game doesn’t end as several key notes were also made about the project.

– When two girls get it on – one girl turns into a super weapon

– Wield your incredible pleasure powered weapons to take on hordes of enemies

– Ultra-fast hack and slash action with a focus on stylish aerial combos

– Power up your weapons by turning on your girlfriends

– Weapons can be levelled up in strength up to 15 times – getting bigger and more awesome looking every time

– Take your favourite girls into the dressing room and rub and touch to raise their levels

– Choose between 7 playable characters to master

So if you’re looking for a… unique, title for the PSVita later this year, Marvelous is known for delivering on the high octane action that makes games like Senran Kagura a cult classic. PQube is also releasing Gal*Gun: Double Peace to the west as well later this month.
