We are pleased to announce that Muv-Luv is now available to all steam users in Simplified Chinese.

Additionally, “Muv-Luv Alternative”, slated for release later this year, will also support the same three languages.

WARNING: Chinese Simplified version is not compatible with the Director 's cut patch, and switching to it will reset to the Steam version.

Muv-Luv version 1.15: Uncropped CGs and more

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

We're happy to announce that a number of bugs have been fixed:

  • Guaranteed that certain in-game animations will play at the correct speed.
  • Removed rain animation from one indoor scene.
  • Increased size of font in credits for fort-class sponsors.
  • Moved Steam notifications overlay to prevent it from covering important game elements.
  • Fixed bug that forced game text to be visible when taking a screenshot with F12.
  • Fixed a bug preventing the user’s clicks from registering immediately after toggling the display language.
  • Fixed a bug causing certain scenes to randomly trigger an error message when seen for the first time.
  • Added an option for users to toggle whether loading an automatic quicksave should create another quicksave at that point.
  • Fixed an error in the birthday CG.
  • Fixed one untranslated CG in Tama’s route.
  • Fixed a bug causing the wrong date to be displayed on save files under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed typo on the overwrite save prompt.

We've also released the Director's Cut patch, and it's available on Denpasoft at 50% as of this time!
Be sure to update Muv-Luv to version 1.15 before applying the patch!

About This Game

The Muv-Luv series is an epic saga told in three parts: Muv-Luv Extra, Muv-Luv Unlimited, and Muv-Luv Alternative. What begins as a tongue-in-cheek romantic comedy ultimately transforms into an action-packed thrill ride in a war-torn alternate reality, and it’s this drastic-yet-methodical genre twist that makes the final chapter the most highly-revered visual novel of all time. This is a story that will plant seeds in your brain early in the first act that you won’t even notice until they sprout in the third for maximum narrative payoff and crushing emotional impact. Don’t fall for Extra’s cutesy exterior. This series ventures into some of the darkest thematic territory you’ll ever see, and when the final curtain closes, you’ll likely need a forklift to pick your jaw up off the floor. Make no mistake: this is a story that will challenge you in ways few works of fiction dare attempt, and an emotional tour de force unlike any other.

This game contains the first two arcs: Extra, and Unlimited. The final arc is the story’s massive climax, and is nearly the size of the first two combined. It will be available soon on Steam as a standalone title, so keep an eye out for Muv-Luv Alternative when it launches this winter.

Muv-Luv Extra

Takeru is your average unassuming high school senior whose entire world gets turned upside down one morning when he awakens to find himself in bed with the heiress to one of the world’s largest international conglomerates. She calls herself Meiya, and - despite never having met him before - she insists that the two of them are destined for one another. This comes much to the chagrin of his childhood friend Sumika, the girl next door who’s always had feelings for him, who realizes that if she doesn’t act fast, she might just lose him forever. All of which begs the question: just who is Meiya? And do his feelings for Sumika run deeper than he thought? In the end, he’ll need to decide between the girl who’s been with him through thick and thin, or the stranger who claims they’re bound together by fate.

But that’s only one side of the story.

Muv-Luv Unlimited

Just as the page turns on Takeru’s happily ever after, he awakens one morning in a world not his own. An alternate timeline, humanity on the brink of extinction. A world infested by alien invaders locked in a war that’s been raging on for decades. And yet, all the set pieces are the same - his house is still here, albeit dilapidated and barely standing. His school is still here, though it’s now a military academy. And even though they don’t recognize him, all his friends are here too… with one exception.

Was this all just a dream? Or was the world he thought he knew really a dream all along?
