Following the Senran Kagura franchise, Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni is the latest of Kenichiro Takaki’s projects to secure a localized worldwide release.
From the creator of the widely popular Senran Kagura franchise, Valkyrie Drive is the “middle child” of Kenichiro Takaki’s projects, placed between the aforementioned escapades of ninja schoolgirls and the upcoming all-male Beat-Em-Up Uppers. Valkyrie Drive was announced last year as a cross-media project, featuring a PS Vita title, anime series, and social mobile game. The franchise deals with a pandemic outbreak that turns women into over-sized weapons upon arousal; those who carry the virus are all transported to a series of islands for active testing through combat. Though it’s certainly one of the more risque properties out there, Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid is currently available to watch online, with the social card game Valkyrie Drive: Siren and PS Vita title Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni both available exclusively to Japan.
Earlier today, publisher PQube confirmed that Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni would receive localized releases for both North America and Europe. Both regions will receive the full unaltered game, complete with 28 Story Missions, 7 playable characters and 4-player online multiplayer.
A release window has not been announced, however Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni will release for the PS Vita in NA and EU later this year as both a physical and digital title.
