Visual Novels ‘Muv-Luv’ and ‘Muv-Luv Alternative’ Are Now Set for Release on iOS and Android in Spring 2022

Back in early November, developer Age announced that both Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative are coming to iOS and Android before the end of the year. At Comiket 99, the developer revealed that the new release window for both of the visual novel releases is now spring 2022. If you’ve not played or heard of them, both of these visual novels are considered classics by fans of the genre. Muv-Luv is actually two visual novels together while Muv-Luv Alternative is the third part of the narrative that concludes the story setup by parts one and two that form the core of Muv-Luv. Until this mobile release, the stories can be experienced through the visual novel releases on PC and PS Vita outside Japan.

The official Kickstarter project page has a roadmap for the series with spin-offs and other projects also mentioned. As of this writing, Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative will be out on iOS and Android in Spring 2022. A confirmed release date will likely be revealed in the near future. Kickstarter project backers who backed the Android version will also be given an iOS code according to the announcement which you can read here. I’m not sure how they will handle codes on iOS given how limited promo codes are on iOS versus platforms like Steam. A price point for either release hasn’t been revealed as of now but I expect it to match or be slightly below the Steam price. Hopefully a Nintendo Switch release is also on the cards once the mobile versions are available worldwide. Until then, you can check out Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative on Steam here. If you have played them before, what do you think of Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative and will you be getting them on iOS or Android this year?
