Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni listed at ShopTo

Marvelous' Takaki-produced action game coming west?

Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni

Update 7/8/16: PQube has officially announced Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni for release in North America and Europe in 2016.

Original 7/6/16 at 3:34 p.m.: A product page for Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni was briefly listed on the website of U.K. retailer ShopTo.

The page, which has since been removed (but accessible via lists the PS Vita game for a September 14 release date under the publishing of PQube. PQube even liked a tweet sent out about the listing.

A potential western release shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. Prior to its original in Japan in December 2015, an English Trophy list for the game appeared online.

Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni is produced by Kenichiro Takaki, best known for his work on the Senran Kagura series. It 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.
