The game will launch in English for PC this summer 2020. To be more precise, it’ll come by the end of July.

It will cost $29.99 and you can check out a trailer at the bottom of the trailer. 

Photonmelodies is the second Muv-Luv side-story compilation originally released for PS3, which is being localized and ported to PC by Anchor. It’s also arguably the best, including the (assumed) Muv-Luv Altered Fable – A Shimmering Shard of Space-Time, Muv-Luv Alternative Chronicles Resurrection, and my personal favorite Muv-Luv Alternative Chronicles Aspiration, which provides a more extensive look on the European front of the franchise’s war-torn world.

It’s the last release promised with the original Muv-Luv Kickstarter, following Photonflowers which launched last year.

It originally launched in Japan in 2013, but finally, western gamers will get to enjoy it as well.

During the same event, we saw new gameplay of the new Muv-Luv action game Project MikhailMuv-Luv Unlimited The Day After was announced for the west, and the Muv-Luv Alternative manga was also announced coming digitally in English.

If you want to learn more about Muv-Luv in general, you should definitely read our interview with creator Kouki Yoshimune-san and producer Kazutoshi Matsumura, alongside our most recent chat with Kitakuo about Project Immortal.
