If you are not familiar Muv-Luv Dimensionsis a free mobile game for iOS and Android based on popular Move-Luv a series of visual novels. It was originally released last year as Muv-Luv Immortals, but it had significant problems and was immediately recalled. Publisher aNCHOR has decided to completely change the game by bringing in experienced mobile developer NextNinja, who is currently preparing for a complete relaunch.
If you want to see more, we recently saw character trailers for Mana Tsukuyomi and Marimo Jinguji. So far, the game has only been announced for Japan. But hopefully aNCHOR and NextNinja will release it in English as well.
The franchise is considered by many to be one of the best (if not the best) visual novel series of all time, and one of the first isekai stories to make waves in Japanese pop culture when the genre wasn’t as oversaturated as it is now. It combines a tragic and romantic story with one of the best and deepest science fiction worlds ever written. It is so influential that Attack on Titan mangaka Hajime Isayama has repeatedly cited him as one of his main sources of inspiration. +
majority Move-Luv visual novels are currently available in English on Steam (until Move-Luv and An alternative to Muv-Luv were also released on PS Vita) along with the Early Access action game Project MIKHAIL: History of the Muv-Lyuv war.
We also saw the release recently Volume 2 Art Muv-Luv Regenerative magazine on Steam, delving into the world of the franchise while several stylish plastic model kits were announced.
