Kill La Kill: IF will contain a side story featuring main protagonist Ryuko


Runs concurrent to the main one

While the main plot of the upcoming Kill La Kill: IF will star Kiryuin Satsuki, an additional side story featuring anime protagonist Matoi Ryuko will be playable as well. Upon completing the main story mode, the extra scenario will be unlocked and will show Kiryuin's story from Matoi's perspective. It will be an original story separate from the anime, so fans are in for a treat.

The description on the official website reads:

Play the adventure again with Ryuko as the main character and discover her side of the IF story!

After Ryuko is defeated by Satsuki, Nui appears before her. Now determined to become stronger, is Ryuko really going to ask Nui to train her!? And what about the secret of the Original Life Fiber that was not revealed in the original series?

Come and experience the second IF story, intertwined with Satsuki's scenario!

If you know anything about the anime, that description should sound jarring. Nui serves as the secondary antagonist in the series, so for Matoi to team up with her can't be a good thing. If that means Kiryuin gets her time to shine, though, then I'm all for it.

Kill La Kill: IF is scheduled for a July 26 release on PC, PS4, and Switch in North America and Europe. It will be hitting Japanese platforms a day earlier on July 25.
