PQube announced that the ixtl developed visual novel series Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative will be headed west physically and digitally for PlayStation Vita in North America and Europe.

Muv-Luv is a visual novel that tells the story of Takeru Shirogane, who seems to be gaining the affection of a childhood friend as well as a mysterious heiress. However, this romantic theme is only a facade because very soon Takeru enters a parallel universe where mecha war wages and he’s right in the middle of it.

Together, Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative, clock in over 150 hours of play time with a story that is regarded as one of the best by the visual novel community. Currently, the trilogy is available on PC-via Steam from publisher Degica Games, with Muv-Luv Alternative launching last September.

The PS Vita release of Muv-Luv includes both Muv-Luv Extra and Muv-Luv Ultimate on a single cartridge. While Muv-Luv Alternative contains the full game, but being that this is considered as more of an interactive movie, it seems fitting to spread the trilogy over two PS Vita cartridges.
