posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
PS4/Switch/PC game launches in Japan on July 25, in West on July 26

Arc System Works began streaming two character videos on Friday for Kill la Kill IF, the first game based on the Kill la Kill anime. The videos preview the characters Houka Inumuta and Nonon Jakuzure. Previous videos previewed Ryūko Matoi, Satsuki Kiryūin, Ira Gamagoori, and Uzu Sanageyama.

Arc System Works will release the game for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in Japan on July 25, and in North America on July 26. PQube will ship the game in Europe on July 26.

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.

The anime's scriptwriter Kazuki Nakashima returned to write the game's original story, which was written like "another episode" of the anime. The game's "if" story will diverge from the anime's story partway through and will include new content. The game's protagonist will be Satsuki Kiryūin, rival and ally of the original anime's protagonist Ryūko Matoi.

The game will also have another story mode featuring Ryūko Matoi. After players beat Satsuki's story, Ryūko's story scenario will unlock. Ryūko's story mode also features an original story.

Playable characters include Satsuki Kiryūin, Ryuko Matoi, Ira Gamagoori, Uzu Sanageyama, Houka Inumuta, Nonon Jakuzure, Ragyō Kiryūin, and Nui Harime. The game will add the playable characters Mako Mankanshoku and Ultimate Double Naked DTR as free downloadable content this summer.
