Marvelous, Senran Kagura creator launch new series


Valkyrie Drive multimedia project announced at AnimeJapan

Marvelous is launching a new franchise that appears to be more salacious and sexually-charged than Senran Kagura, if that even sounds possible.

The publisher revealed a new mixed media project at this weekend's AnimeJapan expo in Tokyo. Titled Valkyrie Drive, the undertaking involves an anime series, PS Vita title, and mobile game.

The story involves a number of young women who can transform into weapons, though the whole bit appears to be a vehicle for Kenichiro Takaki's special brand of ecchi.

Takaki (Senran Kagura, IA/VT ColorfulHalf-Minute Hero) is producing the PS Vita game, Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni, with the help of Meteorise, the studio behind Senran Kagura Bon Appétit.

The mobile app, Valkyrie Drive: Siren, will be a free-to-play tie-in to the other game and show.

Marvelous hasn't announced any plans for a western release, but this seems like exactly the sort of thing the publisher's western localization studio XSEED is interested in these days.
