    Guessing these are story adventures? Date sims?

    • VN. I think it will have a linear storyline judging by the anime.

  • Sounds like an eroge. I’m interested all of a sudden XD

    • well muvluv is an eroge to begin with XD

      • I vaguely remember Muv-Luv the h-anime… but iirc, it wasn’t Sci-fi… maybe i  just remember wrong…

        • MrTyrant

          A little summary

          Muv luv extra: Eroge, romantic comedy

          Muv luv unlimited: eroge, romantic comedy and paralel world with mechas

          Muv luv alternative: same paralel world, different time, war drama that is linear (choice don’t affect anything) it has less H than previous games. Rated as one of the best vn ever because of the great plot, development with awesome fights/sacrifices. It was ported before where they censor the H and the gore scenes.

          What they have in common? the main character, he travel between dimension and time (time driver) where it is hard for him to adapt to this new apocaliptic worlds.

    • Its not. The source material (LN 1st then anime and VN) have harem/fanservice elements but no ero.

      • the one i played was the eroge version (VN), the one released on 2003 before the censorship

  • MrTyrant

    Will this be a linear visual novel as the original alternative and following the original source of Total Eclipe or they will add new things as routes/ending with some character and better events? the later will be the ideal because the original Total Eclipse is pretty bad IMO compared with the main storylines.

    • Its a VN adaptation of the LN Total Eclipse. It will complete the entire TE series. The LNB will continue after this VN is released.

      Well for a non-VN player IMO TE is good.

      • MrTyrant

        I said it was bad compared to something obviously better not saying is completly bad show as a normal anime. Still the lacks of mechs (Real robots) disturb me each season so this Total Eclipse was actually good at that.

        Still want my non-linear events, c’mon I want to pick Yuuya’s waifus xD Inb4 Muv Luv Extra v.Total Eclipe in the future with Cryska and Inia as the transfers students D:

        • Lol Extra ver TE could work.. Yuuya and co. as a college student, Yui as sensei + love interest, and Scarlet Twins as transfer student. I want to see tht just for LOLZ.

  • XypherCode

    Played the PC version of Alternative so I’ll be holding off the console versions except if there are additional content of some kind. xD 
    I’m reading/watching Total Eclipse and it’s good so the game might be worth checking out. :)

    • LynxAmali

      This is the full TE visual novel that was teased in one of the Chronicles games, the very same one that gave us THIS opening:

      And the console versions actually have new tracks (Metamorphose and First Pain for the 360 while 0-Gravity by Granrodeo (Alt) and Love Step for Extra for PS3, I think there might be a few Granrodeo covers of Wings, Carry On and Songs of a Distant Earth as well if the new album’s anything to go by) as well as new CGs which actually show Takeru.

      • My my my… why is Scarlet Twins hogging the main visual??? I want Yui XD
        Also tht OP > Anime OP (though I can live with it)

        0-Gravity is my fav OP out of all the ML one I’ve listened. 360 have a diff. one?? Lemme go look it up.

  • FINALLY a release date lol.

    Now abt how to get it in english….

  • Great another game to get on my list…I can feel my wallet sink in February. 

  • LynxAmali

    Really hoping for playable TSF fights.

    Also; Chobi route and Chinese Maru route.


    • MrTyrant

       Churrasco route? Im ok with that but I need my chinese miku (Yifei) and the delicious swedish (Stella) too.

      • LynxAmali

        Yes, Chinese Maru is Chinese Miku.
        Because of her VA, I keep expecting to say “Maru!”

        Damn it, Lagrange.

    • XypherCode

      Yeah I would really like some mech action gameplay here like in Baldr Sky.

      • MrTyrant

        That would be awesome and someone here did really play Baldr Sky, im not alone! yay! (too bad is not in english, freaking translators) But this is a visual novel not a game, age said that before i think.

        • XypherCode

          Now I’m wishing Baldr Sky would head to consoles as well. Considering the controls and unique gameplay outside the typical visual novel. xD

        • LynxAmali

           Baldr is a VN too.
          So is Kishin Hishou Demonbane.
          Duel Savior and all that too.

          There are some VNs that include actual gameplay.

          • MrTyrant

            Well but something with actual gameplay I consider it games. In my case.

  • tubers

    “Going going hikari e..”

    LOL sorry haven’t played the VN just know the anime :P

  • So they are making a visual novel ver sion for Muv luv total eclipse? Because iirc total eclipse is based on a light novel right?

    • MrTyrant

      The original source was an old VN demo in a fandisc from Muv Luv Altered Fable then i believe they made the visual novel based on that trial version from that fandisc and the anime is based on the light novels.

      • LynxAmali

         Light novel came first, actually.
        VN demo-preview thing in AF came next.

        Then the anime and manga.
