Muv-Luv photonmelodies will launch for PC via Steam on July 30 for $29.99, publisher aNCHOR announced.
The Muv-Luv fan disc, which contains three stories from the world of Muv-Luv, first launched for PlayStation 3 in August 2014 in Japan.
Here is an overview of the game, via aNCHOR:
AboutIn 2015, Muv-Luv‘s creators raised over one million dollars in a Kickstarter to bring five games over to the west: Muv-Luv Extra, Muv-Luv Unlimited, Muv-Luv Alternative, Muv-Luv photonflowers, and Muv-Luv photonmelodies. Now, after five years, they’re finally ready to release photonmelodies, the last game promised to backers.
photonmelodies depicts the end of the journey for Muv-Luv protagonist Takeru, an ordinary high school student who finds himself trapped in another world and caught up in a brutal war against alien invaders called the BETA. The series is famous for its brutality, gore, and unflinching depiction of trauma and the realities of war. Now, in photonmelodies, Takeru has returned home to his peaceful life in Japan, and the girls he loves are all waiting for him.
A more lighthearted take on the Muv-Luv universe than previous games, photonmelodies still has the same things that make the series great.
The game also contains two additional stories that expand further on the Muv-Luv universe: Adoration, a story about Europe’s struggles against the alien BETA onslaught, and Resurrection, a story about a cybernetic spy infiltrating a Japanese base.
Contains Three Fantastic Stories from the World of Muv-Luv
- Altered Fable: A Shimmering Shard of Spacetime – The final epilogue of Takeru’s journey! After saving the world from the BETA at the end of Muv-Luv Alternative, protagonist Takeru returns back home, where all the girls are waiting for him.
- Adoration – Get a rare glimpse into what was going on in Europe while Japan was being devoured by aliens! (Spoiler: They were also being devoured by aliens.) Follow an uptight Japanese cadet as he visits England to join the Cerberus Battalion, an esteemed TSF corps full of elite but eccentric pilots.
- Resurrection – Set one month before the events of Alternative, this short story follows cybernetic spy Silvio Orlandi as he visits Yokohama base in search of classified information. It’s much less serious than it sounds… until it isn’t.
