Good news to the players who played the now-defunct Immortals: Muv-Luv Alternative – the game will re-launch in Spring 2023. It originally came out in March 2022 before shutting down almost immediately due to bugs that made the game unplayable. The re-launched version of the game will be one that improves on the base of the original. [Thanks, KaroshiMyriad!]
According to the announcement on the Immortals: Muv-Luv Alternative website, the development team will work with NextNinja to publish the title. NextNinja has worked on mobile titles such as Grand Summoners, Touhou LostWord, and and Warau Arsnotoria. As the new game will essentially be an upgraded version of the original, it’ll count as a new release.
When the title originally came out, it was only available for a short period of time before critical issues forced the developers to shut down the game. Originally, the shutdown was only supposed to last for about a month. aNCHOR did not officially specify the exact nature of the issues, nor explain the decision to extend the shutdown. Commentary from the time suggests that one issue may have been related to an exploit that allowed players to earn unlimited amounts of premium currency.
Immortals: Muv-Luv Alternative will come out on iOS and Android mobile devices. It will be an action RPG with characters from the Muv-Luv series making an appearance.
