If you’re eagerly waiting for the next Muv-Luv visual novel release, today we got good news about Muv-Luv Photonmelodies.
The news come by way of localization director Evan Ward, who shared them on Twitter.
We learn that localization has passed a milestone as the translation of Muv-Luv Altered Fable is complete.
For those who aren’t familiar with it, Altered Fable is the name often used to indicate Kagayaku Toki ga Kienumani (the title has been unofficially translated before as Before the Shimmering Time Ends). It’s actually the title of the original fandisk that included it, before it was incorporated into Photonmelodies for PS3.
It’s considered by most a sequel of Muv-Luv Alternative in the universe of Muv-Luv Extra, even if creator Kouki Yoshimune was coy on it when I asked him in our recent interview.
That being said, it’s a very sizable and awesome visual novel that fans of the series will likely love.
Photonmelodies will also include two stories set in the Alternative universe, Muv-Luv Alternative Chronicles Resurrection, and my personal favorite Muv-Luv Alternative Chronicles Aspiration, which provides a more extensive look on the European front.
At the moment, we still don’t have a release date, but it’s likely coming to Steam soon enough.

You can also read my report of the 20th-anniversary event hosted earlier this week in Tokyo, and my analysis of the art showcased for Muv-Luv Integrate.
The event itself was rich with announcements, including the reveal of a Muv-Luv: Alternative sequel titled Muv-Luv Integrate, the announcement of an action game code-named Project Mikhail, an update on Muv-Luv Unlimited The Day After and on the Android version of the original trilogy, the tease of a reboot of Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, and the announcement of a Muv-Luv Alternative anime.
