After waiting years for the complete Muv-Luv series to make its way to the West in a fully and properly translated form, ixtl and Degica have finally fulfilled the promise and the Kickstarter journey to round out the Muv-Luv Alternative translation endeavor. However, it’s censored on Steam at the moment but many are expecting an uncensored patch to arrive sometime soon.
For now gamers have to settle for playing through the visual novel without the uncensored elements, which consists of a measly two sexy-time scenes. Even if an official patch (or officially distributed unofficial patch) doesn’t find its way onto the news page for the game, there’s likely going to be n unofficial patch containing the uncensored content made available from the community.
Nevertheless, for people interested in how the Muv-Luv story ends, you can do so by picking up a digital copy of the visual novel right now for $39.99 from over on the Steam store.
The story centers around Takeru, who ends up venturing to an alternative universe where humankind is on the verge of extinction thanks to an alien menace named the Beta having invaded. Based on the previous events of the other Muv-Luv titles where Takeru lived out similar experiences in alternate universe, he attempts to rights the wrongs of the world this time around, and seeks out the help of those he trusts most to do so.
You can check out the launch trailer below to get an idea of what the animations, character designs and art is like.
Unlike other visual novels out there, Muv Luv Alternative is a vicious, gory spectacle full of backstabbing, violence, political intrigue and some romance.
A lot of manga, visual novel and gaming fans have been waiting a long time for a proper translation of the Muv-Luv series, so now that Alternative has been completed, the collection is finished.
You can either buy the game separately or buy the collection for $75. The bundle is currently discounted by 31% and is available for only $51, which isn’t a bad deal. Degica is about one whole year late on finishing the translate, but better late than never, right?
