During a livestreamed event from Japan dedicated to the Muv-Luv series, publisher aNCHOR revealed a new video of the upcoming game codenamed “Project Mikhail.”
The new goodies were delivered by director Jun Kumano himself.
We get to see a video showing early pre-alpha footage of a TSF doing battle against various kinds of BETA.
The development team is currently working on the ways the BETA move and fight.
It’s worth mentioning that the animations of the BETA are still work-in-progress. The game will look “a lot better” as development continues according to Kumano-san.
The next video showcases a cutscene in the adventure part of the game. This kind of cutscenes will actually display the player’s own TSF.
Project Mikhail is scheduled to release in 2021 for PC via Steam, iOS, and Android.
During the same event, we received the much-awaited announcement that Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien (also known as Rumbling Hearts) will finally be released in English.
