posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Arc System Works announced at the ArcRevo Japan 2018 event on Saturday that Kill la Kill the Game -If- (Ifu), the first game based on the Kill la Kill anime, is getting a version for the Nintendo Switch.
The event also revealed two new playable characters:
The game will launch for the PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam next year. Arc System Works did not specify if the Switch version will also ship in the same time period.
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. Arc System Works is discussing the possibility of providing an English dub for the game.
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 game's protagonist will be Satsuki Kiryūin, rival and ally of the original anime's protagonist Ryūko Matoi.
Other playable characters include Ryuko Matoi, Ira Gamagoori, Uzu Sanageyama, Houka Inumuta, and Nonon Jakuzure.
