Physical Reward Updates and Muv-Luv Alternative Translation Progress

Posted by The Muv-Luv Team (Creator)

Hi everyone,

Thank you very much for your patience and support for Muv-Luv! Muv-Luv Alternative is a very sizable game, so for the purposes of our translation and editing passes, we've divided it up into three large arcs that provide milestones for our progress. At the moment, our in-depth translation check has been completed, and our intensive editing pass has reached the midway point of the game's second arc, putting us well within the second half of the overall process. 

Multiple Japanese-proficient translators/editors are reviewing and collaborating on every script to eliminate any lingering translation errors, ensure that the dialogue reads well, and that the terminology is kept consistent. This was particularly tricky for certain infodump scenes early in Alternative, but we've made good progress, and we're looking forward to providing you with a polished and professional release as soon as possible.

The English version of hundreds of HUDs, Maps, and diagrams shown in-game are also on the way. Here are a few (spoiler-free) examples some fans may recognize:




Physical Rewards Progress

We're drawing closer to the distribution of physical rewards as well! Here's a sneak peek to the goodies coming your way:

Muv-Luv Alternative CODEX

The editing for Muv-Luv Alternative CODEX is roughly 70% complete. A really huge thanks to Gabgrave for helping us update the glossary and ensure everything's consistent with the in-game terms. The page layout process have been a lot more straightforward as a result. Here are a few pages:

Note: The contents may contain some spoilers.





Muv-Luv Collector's Box

We have also prepared the designs of the collector's box, DVD and PS Vita cases. We will include in-game screenshots from Muv-Luv Alternative once we've released the game on Steam. If you have any feedback or suggestions for the boxes, please do leave a comment below.






PS Vita Status

We apologize for the delays for Muv-Luv PS Vita Edition. It's currently undergoing ESRB rating and a few more finalization steps. We just need a little more time before releasing it on PSN.

We're also preparing Muv-Luv Alternative's requirements in advance to make the porting process faster.

      @Fez: The FAQ actually answers your question about the digital Vita port.

      ・After the KS ends we'll send out a survey and you can choose which region you want the PS Vita code to be for. :)

      ・We've already confirmed that we'll be able to generate them for the other regions ( not just U.S. )

      The first two entries in the series, Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Extra, are both part of the same package--two complete, separate stories released as one game.

      Why are there 2 covers? I'm not sure what I pledged. I though this is a trilogy. Why is separated?

    5. Playcool92 on

      This update is full of WIN, cant wait for it!

      BTW I would like to know how is the progress going for all the other stuff, like the figurines, the plushes and my awesome jacket.

      Keep the good work guys.

    6. Curdi on

      Don't mind me;

      @Jose Maisonet-Torres
      I second that, the logo doesn't look great on the side of the disc cases, too small.
      Love the collectors box design though!
      Is there going to be information on the other physical items soon?

    8. Axeman on

      Nice update. How is the android port coming alone?

    9. Michael Chen on

      Some comments regarding the current box design:

      will the vita cover images be as shown? I think both could be made better if scaled it down a bit.

    10. YumeriaYumi

      Not to sound ungrateful for this info but I wonder about the other physical items. Mostly the TSF Pilot Jacket since I backed at the level to get it.

    11. Chris Adamson on

      Those Codex pages look as nice or even nicer than the "Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse World Guidance" book on my bookshelf. Can't wait to get this.

    12. Jose Maisonet-Torres on

      Some feedback for the cases.

      I think it'd be great to have "Muv-Luv" and "Muv-Luv Alternative" printed clearly on the sides. They'd be easier to identify on a shelf if the whole title of the game was on the side.

    13. Nathan Lai on

      Any information on what type of box is going to used for the Collector's Box, like a telescope type or a book style? Also, how will the items be packaged in the Collector's Box?

      Has there been any word on the Sumika figma? After Under the Dog dropped the ball on the Anthea figure, I'm curious to hear how things have been going on this.

    15. Nonscpo on

      I don't think my tier tier includes the Muv-Luv Alternative CODEX, if I decided that I did want one, is it possible to get one thru Backer kit? I backed the physical PSVITA tier.

    16. Brabeus Rapier on

      That Collector's box and Vita Cases are great! I don't mind waiting a bit longer for them.

      @Mark It's at 70% translated so it will still take a while before it's done.

      When can we expect the digital codex?

      Fez on

      Eh, I am just really curious. There hasn't been any finalized Vita versions available digitally from any campaign. So I'd like to see if they are going to treat us EU plebs right or not.

      I would honestly be very disappointed if they're just halfassing it with a NA release only digitally.

      One of my biggest gripe with Vita versions is that no one wants to answer the horrible question of. But, what about that thing called EU? So I'd like an answer.

    20. Paul Downs on

      I'm not sure that quite follows Fez... we should be fine, ESRB tweaks doesn't mean there won't be a PEGI rating.

    21. Radosław Wójciak on

      Where the physicals are shipping from? I'm EU backer.

      Fez on

      So does this mean anyone who are in EU won't be able to redeem their PS Vita codes as it is only being rated by ESRB? If I had known this I'd just ordered physical PS Vita copies. Kind of saddened by this, to be quite honest.

      Seeing the collector's box and all made me wish I had backed for way more back then. Oh well, I guess this will be one of my most bittersweet pledges.

      Excited for Alternative though, can't wait to dive into this when it's completed.

    23. Christopher Chan on

      Can't wait to know the exact date the collector's box will ship :)

    24. Flanfy on

      Spotted a typo in the BETA unit settled locations pictures. Says Canad.

    25. Teofilo Hurtado

      Thank you for the update! One question regarding the ComicKet exclusive items: Are you going to send them with the rest of the physical rewards? Or did you already send them?

    26. Ross John Arthur Burford on

      If we picked the Vita version are we still going to get a late physical copy? if so are we able to switch it to android or so, so we won't have to wait?
