A tale of combat, giant weapons and lesbians, Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni leaps from the PS Vita to Steam next month.
Valkyrie Drive is the second cross-media project from Senran Kagura and Uppers creator Kenichiro Takaki. Whether it’s the Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid anime series, social mobile game Valkyrie Drive: Siren, or the previously Sony-exclusive Beat-Em-Up Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni, the franchise tells the bizarre tale of women infected with varying strains of the “V-Virus” (“A” in Japan) and “VR-Virus”; classified as “Extars” and “Liberators”, these women are capable of transforming into massive weapons (Extars, V-Virus) and can wield one-another (Liberators, VR-Virus) when the virus is agitated through combat or arousal.
Publisher Marvelous Entertainment previously confirmed that a PC version of Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni was scheduled to release later this year; the official Steam listing went live this morning, though the title is not yet ready for pre-order. Bhikkhuni‘s PC version has been updated to feature 1080p visuals presented at 60fps, with support for higher resolutions- hardware pending. A four-player online battle mode will be present, alongside support for Steam Achievements, cloud saves, Steam Trading Cards, and unlockable Emoticons, Steam Badges and Profile Backgrounds. The system requirements are as follows, courtesy of the Steam store listing:
Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni will release for PC via Steam on 6/20.
