Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative, two excellent visual novels widely considered some of the best in genre, are making their debut on a pretty unexpected handheld: the PlayStation Vita. No, not the Switch. You expected it to be the Switch, didn’t you? It’s not. Dust your Vita off for a new adventure this summer.
Surprisingly, the Vita is still getting more games with releases of both Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative as both physical and digital copies this summer. Muv-Luv is a love story that spans different dimensions, following protagonist Takeru, a high school senior who finds that he one day wakes up in bed with Meiya, who insists that they’re connected by destiny. She’s also the heiress to an enormous company. But that irritates his childhood friend Sumika, who’s been in love with him since the pair’s childhood days. Who will Takeru choose between, and how will it change things in his life?
You can do it all over again in Muv-Luv Alternative, where Takeru gets a chance to change how things play out, in the other release coming to Vita. If you play the original Muv-Luv, you’re definitely going to want to check this one out too. Muv-Luv is going to be in a handy portable format for once, and you can take it with you. Which is awesome.
