Muv-Luv developer âge Soft has come back under the spotlight following the 20th anniversary event in October, but apparently fans can expect more excitement in 2020.
Today the developer posted a new update on Kickstarter to provide information on the delivery of some of the remaining rewards from the campaign (including the absolutely majestic codex) and a look at the Comiket 97 booth, which apparently proved very successful among the local fans.
Interestingly, the message ended with a tease about 2020.
“Please look forward to our future announcements, and rest assured 2020 will be a great year for Muv-Luv fans!”
This is quite interesting, as most of what has been announced at the anniversary event doesn’t have a release window. The only upcoming release confirmed for 2020 so far is the western version on Steam of the fan disk Muv-Luv: Photonmelodies.
âge is also going to launch a massive 20th anniversary box with nearly all of its games in March, but that’s exclusive for Japan.
We also got a lovely celebratory illustration for the new year by Kotarou Aizawa featuring Kasumi in a cute mouse outfit, which is a reference to the fact that 2020 is the year of the rat according to the Chinese zodiac.
