Today Avex subsidiary aNCHOR announced that it reacquired the Steam publishing rights of the Muv-Luv series from Sekai Project.
Los Angeles-based visual novel company Sekai Project has been taking care of the publishing of the series on Valve’s digital distribution platform until now, but Tokyo-based aNCHOR (which includes Muv-Luv developer âge) will be taking back direct control on February 17, 2020,
This includes all the games already published on Steam as follows:
- Muv-Luv Alternative
- Muv-Luv photonflowers*
That being said, this will not have any impact on customers as mentioned in the note below.
“This transfer will have no effect on customers who have purchased the game, and no action is required on the player’s part. Please continue to enjoy your games without interruption.”
