The Muv-Luv Official YouTube Channel aired a video with new footage and details about the upcoming Project Mikhail. The news came from the channel’s Breaking Dawn livestream. The development team confirmed there will be no gacha or loot boxes, though there will be paid subscriptions. We have translated a summary of the information below. [Thanks, Dengeki!]

During a Q&A segment during the Muv-Luv livestream, the team elaborated on new features and changes that will appear in Project Mikhail. Thanks to feedback, the title will allow players to toggle damage indicators on and off during gameplay. The team is also working on adding more BETA to fight, which are the antagonistic extraterrestrial life forms in the series. The developers assured people that there will be a single-player mode where you can customize parts and enjoy the story. As for battles, players will be able to trigger counters with well-timed maneuvers, and enemies will change their attack patterns depending on how good the player is too.

Developed by âge-soft and published by aNCHOR, the Muv-Luv game Project Mikhail will release on the Nintendo Switch and Windows PC. However, the team clarified during its livestream that they plan to launch the title on other platforms in the future. Specifically, the team seems to have laid the groundwork for PlayStation and Xbox hardware development. The publisher is promoting Project Mikhail as a “dark action RPG” with a unique system where each of the player’s actions and choices will affect the in-game world. The team further updated the targeted release date to “around September” 2021.
