Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni’s Gameplay Sounds Like Senran Kagura: Estival Versus

As it turns out, Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni has been confirmed as a title for PlayStation Vita. The keyword for the game is “offense,” and it will be a 3D battle action game that will have you take on clusters of enemies at a time.


The more you fight together as the pair of Rinka and Ranka Kagurazaka, their “Synchro Rate” increases, which will be accompanied by a change in their weapons and combos, in addition to various interaction scenes as they fight.


Again, when you launch powerful special attacks, it’ll break the costumes of both allies and enemies, so that’s already one thing the game has in common with the Senran Kagura series.


While we still don’t know the full details as far as gameplay goes, its description sounds a lot like that of Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus and Estival Versus, with more cooperative features between the two girls.


Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni will release in Japan sometime in 2015 for PlayStation Vita. You can read more about its mixed media project in our earlier report.
