BackerKit is Ready, and Giveaway Winner Announcement (Part 1/3)!


Hi Everyone,

BackerKit is doing their final review and if everything checks out we'll be sending out campaign surveys within the next 24 hours! Please take a look when you receive your email from them and let us know if there are any issues :)

A quick note on signed boxes:
We've had a number of users requesting that their boxes not be signed so we've come up with 2 options :)

All Collectors Boxes will have the option of either receiving an exclusive mini-shikishi with Yoshimune-san's signature printed on it (see mockup below) or having the box itself signed by the Muv-Luv Team.

All Raptor And Takemikazuchi TSF Boxes will have the option of receiving an exclusive pin/button or having the box itself signed by the Muv-Luv Team as well.

Gift Bag delivery information - January 15, 2016
Jacket/Hoodie/T-Shirt Sizes - January 15, 2016
Pillowcase heroine choice - 1 month after the design sketches are revealed (will most likely be the set deadline for BackerKit as well)

We're sorry for taking a while getting all of this put together. We had to finalize the numbers including refunds, dropped pledges and Paypal backers. Nonetheless, we thank you for patiently waiting. We'll have an infographic update soon with quite a few interesting statistics :)

      @Brian Henderson Yep, some add-ons have a minimum pledge tier.

      @Ryan @Alessio Di Virgilio Lockdown probably sometime in Jan/Feb

      @Alessio Di Virgilio Codex is free if your tier is at $300 or above (not including add-ons)

      @Michael Bieniewicz-Valada No, I believe it only adds the physical version to your collectors box. So no extra digital.

      @Todd Hubert Make sure you've upgraded your pledge to the $150 tier, instead of selecting it as an add-on.

    2. Brian Henderson on

      Okay, so I pledged at the most basic level, and I see only a few add-on options. Will I have to upgrade my pledge to get further options? I suspect yes, but I thought I'd ask anyway because I want that destroyer plushie! And the games, of course.

    3. Collin Long on

      @Sam I too would like to know if the box will be signed by the Japanese team or the English team.

      Do we know the 'lockdown' date - when the backerkit will charge for the extras.

    5. Lars. A Ruden on

      I'm really stuck with the whole BackerKit option, I choose the 500 dollar kit, but also added a couple of hundreds and I would like to add these items that I can now choose from. I'm really stressed regarding I want to have the items: PSVita for example. Does anyone have the slightes idea what I can do ? :S

      It honestly bugs me a lot x) And when I try to make an account on backerkit it just doesn't work.. so I'm mos def doing something very wrong.

    6. Alessio Di Virgilio on

      When you finish collecting BackerKit ? I wanted to know , if I take a Dakimakura, can i pay it at Christmas?
      They told me that with $ 300 Codex was free .

      @Sasakyo Good questions,I also wonder
      "the box signed by the muv-luv team, will it be signed by the japanese team or the english team ?"

    8. Michael Brand

      "2. Choose Muv-Luv Trilogy Digital Port #1 (Digital PC is available by default, this question is for the PS Vita/Android stretch goal)"

      ... But what if I want *another* Digital PC copy, rather than one for Vita/Android? No joy?

    9. Sasakyo on

      Hey, the box signed by the muv-luv team, will it be signed by the japanese team or the english team ?

    10. Missing avatar


      FYI... I found that the listing you get at the very end when you are about to confirm is the most accurate and useful.

      For example, in my case when I was looking at the add-on page, I could not tell whether I was getting the figure and whether I was getting just the physical Codex or also the digital.

      But... When I got to the very end, every single thing was listed there. Including the figure and both the physical Codex and the digital Codex.

      Michael Bieniewicz-Valada

      ...Okay, really important question about adding the $80 Collector's Box Upgrade - Muv-Luv Trilogy Phsyical Bundle (and yes, the word physical is indeed misspelled) to your collectors box. Does this also add the digital version too, so is it possible to now get all three digital editions if you get this uber collectors box as I now must call it? (That's PC collectors edition, choosing the Android port from the vita+android freebie decision, and then adding the vita physical upgrade to the collectors box)

      Colette Hubert on

      I pledged $1 and just added the $150 physical Vita CE to my pledge, will I still get the figma and all of the digital tiers?

      @The Muv-Luv Team Thanks!

      Basileus777 on

      I pledged at the $150 tier and yet the digital codex isn't one of the items listed as part of my pledge on backerkit. Is there some mistake going on here because the KS page says the digital codex goes to everyone $150 and above.

    15. The Muv-Luv Team Creator on

      @Atticusmj - The physical Vita comes with [digital PC or Vita]. You should see physical Vita after answering it.
      @Andrey - it's a freebie included in the collector's box.
      @Chris - It does come with [digital PC or Vita].

      Andrey on

      @Atticusmj From what I understood, you can have physical Vita and other digital version.

    17. Atticusmj on

      I backed the physical Vita why is it asking me about digital version?
      Where my physical?????

      Andrey on

      Can someone explain me: I have a 300$ tier, so Sumika's figma is a free bonus or I should add it. It's not listed on add-ons page on my Bakers Kit, and wording is not really clear for me.

      Chi Tran on

      I backed for the physical Vita tier, which I did not think came with a digital version. However, my BackerKit is asking if I would rather have a digital PC copy instead of a digital Vita copy. Did something change?

    20. Ray "AcroRay" Miller on

      Backerkit confirmed! No add-ons, but everything went smoothly with platform and signature edition choices, and early reward delivery date choice! Bravo! Whoo hoo!

      @Mobin Mobeen

      At the very least, the chances of a North American release for Schwarzesmarken are better now than they were just a few months ago. Who knows, maybe the extra funds will go towards the localization of another title? Wishful thinking, I know, but a guy can hope, can't he?

    22. Dawid Krajewski (Somi88) on

      Android version will be all age or like pc version will get later patch ?

    23. Type2000 on

      Will the plushie be shipped along with the gift bag?

    24. Rengokuhyouya on

      Shikishi are quick drawings usually letter size, also, I said it a few times already but stop teasing my heart with schwarzesmarken :/

    25. Randomacts on

      So basically the mini-shikishi is a piece of fancy paper with the signature on it.. and nothing else I assume.. right?

      Also am curious to know what the button would be for the TSFs

      Congrats to the winners, but now there's more chance that I'll win one of the big prizes ;D

    27. Curdi on

      @Mobin There most certainly is a chance. I'd almost go as far as to say 'when' rather than 'if'

    28. Mobin Mobeen on

      Is there by any chance that Schwarzesmarken Visual Novel will be translation into English and available for your English Fans?

    29. Curdi on

      Thanks for the update, looking forward to further announcements!
