posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for Kill la Kill the Game -If- (Ifu), the first game based on the Kill la Kill anime, revealed story information and the protagonist for the game on Tuesday. The game's protagonist will be Satsuki Kiryūin, rival and ally of the original anime's protagonist Ryūko Matoi.
The anime's scriptwriter Kazuki Nakashima is returning to write the game's original story, which will be written like "another episode" of the anime. The game's "if" story will diverge from the anime's story partway through and include new content.
The website also revealed the silhouette of the new Junketsu Shinzui outfit, Satsuki's "final form" that is the counterpart of Ryūko's Senketsu Kisaragi, that will appear for the first time in the game. An art book previously revealed the original design for Junketsu Shinzui by the anime's art director Shigeto Koyama. The anime's character designer and chief animation director Sushio provided "cleanup" for the design, and the updated version will debut in the game.
The game will launch for the PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam next year.
Ira Gamagōri and Uzu Sanageyama will be playable characters. Arc System Works is discussing the possibility of providing an English dub for the game.
Anime studio Trigger and game developer and publisher Arc System Works are collaborating on the game, with Arc System Works as the publisher. APLUS (Little Witch Academia game) is developing the game for one to two players.
Trigger's recent projects include a collaboration with A-1 Pictures on the Darling in the FranXX television anime, which premiered in January. The studio is also working on the SSSS.Gridman anime, which will premiere this fall. Anime Expo hosted the world premiere of the anime with Wakabayashi and other Japanese guests on July 6.
Arc System Works is best known for its fighting game series Guilty Gear and Blazblue. The developer recently worked on Bandai Namco Entertainment's Dragon Ball FighterZ and recently released the Blazblue: Cross Tag Battle crossover fighting game.
