VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI- Announced for Steam

Marvelous Games have today announced that VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI-, a hack-and-slash adventure game designed in a similar manner to the SENRAN KAGURA franchise, will be released on to the PC (via Steam) later this year.

The game, which was previously released on to the PS Vita by PQube within Europe and America, sees players take control of up to seven different valkyries who find themselves quarrantined to and island after being infected with the VR Vrius. Here on this ‘BHIKKHUNI’ island the valkyries will attempt to control the virus, which in turn grants them unspeakable powers, as well  harness those said powers by defeating an endless array of enemies on screen.

In VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI- a mysterious virus known as the A-Virus infects young women, transforming them into weapons known as ‘Extars’ or those that control ‘Extars’,’Liberators’ – however, the voluptuous Valkyries are infected with a unique strain, the VR-Virus allowing them to take on either role at will.

Proving incredibly difficult to cure, they are sent to the sun-soaked Bhikkhuni Island for quarantine where a treatment is put into place – by having the Valkyries engage in combat against one another, it can strengthen both mind and body to allow them greater control of the Virus.

Who runs the island? What is the secret of the Virus? Will you choose Order or Chaos? This and more will be answered throughout your time with VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI-.

Unlike the previous PS Vita release this Steam version will offer 1080p resolution, as well include options for higher resolutions, and full 60FPS support. In addition Steam support, such as Steam Achievements, Steam Trading Cards and Cloud Saving will also be included with this PC version of the game.
