The latest project from the producer of Senran Kagura.

Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni

Famitsu has gone up with its online preview of Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni, Marvelous’ new PS Vita game from Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki and just one part in a new mixed media franchise.

The 3D battle action game is set on Bhikkhuni, one of five artificial islands, where those within their teens or twenties suddenly find themselves infected with a mysterious virus that temporarily weaponizes them if they acquire neurological enhancements. The girls of Valkyrie Drive are “Rebreakers” capable of freely weaponizing themselves.

“Attack” is the key word of Bhikkhuni. Players control two characters to mow down swarming enemies, slowly increasing the pair’s “Synchronization Rate,” which can change things such as their weaponization, combos, and dialogue during battle. Additionally, players can perform special attacks that tear up the clothes of both allies and enemies alike.

The Valkyrie Drive project was first announced at AnimeJapan in Tokyo last weekend. In addition to Marvelous’ PS Vita game, it consists of a TV anime directed and with character designs by Hiraku Kaneko called Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid, and a social game called Valkyrie Drive: Siren.
