PQube to Release Kill la Kill IF Game in Europe This Year (Updated)
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
PQube announced on Friday that it will release Kill la Kill IF, the first game based on the Kill la Kill anime, in Europe. The company will release the game for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam this year.
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, Nonon Jakuzure, Ragyō Kiryūin, and Nui Harime.
Update: PQube confirmed on Twitter on Friday that its release of the game will include a Japanese audio track with subtitles and an English dub audio track. Thanks, Marakutanay.
