Today Muv-Luv publisher aNCHOR reached out with a press release to announce a release window for the mobile release of the original visual novel.
Apparently, this time around the title will spell Muv-Luv Extra/Unlimited, even if this is just for clarity, as the original “Muv-Luv” release always included the first two visual novels of the trilogy. It’ll launch in spring 2022 for both iOS and Android.
Originally released in 2003 by legendary developer âge as an adult game (with rather limited adult elements that have faded away with the console releases), Muv-Luv Extra and Unlimited represent the beginning and middle chapter of what is considered by many the best visual novel series of all times.
At the moment, the third chapter of the series, Muv-Luv Alternative, doesn’t yet have a release window for mobile platforms.
Of course, if you don’t want to wait, the whole trilogy (alongside a bunch of other titles from the series) is available on Steam. In the past, it has been published on PS Vita, PS2, and Xbox 360, even if only the Vita version made it to the west on consoles.
If you’re interested in the Muv-Luv series in general, you should definitely read our recent interview with production manager Sho Hamanaga and brand producer Kazutoshi “Tororo” Matsumura, in which he talked about Project Mikhail: A Muv-Luv War Story and the plans for the rest of the franchise.
During last week’s event, we saw new trailers for the new games Muv-Luv Integrate and Muv-Luv Resonative and a look at the upcoming update for Project Mikhail: A Muv-Luv War Story, new images for Muv-Luv Resonative, and the reveal of Duty Lost Arcadia.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Muv-Luv games, you can read my extensive article explaining all you need to know to get into one of the best visual novel series of all time.
Incidentally, now it’s the best time to jump into the series since pretty much everything is majorly discounted via the Steam Winter Sale.
