Kill la Kill The Game: IF is the next anime game in the pipeline, and it looks really good in the first gameplay debuted at EVO 2018.

August 4, 2018

As teased a while ago, Arc System Works showcased the first actual gameplay of  Kill la Kill The Game: IF at EVO 2018.

We also learn some interesting information from the developers, alongside getting to watch some really fast gameplay that looks like a lot of fun.

We learn that the studio decided to go with 3D instead of 2D because 2D fighting games tend to have a high barrier of entry, so the developers wanted to make the game as easily accessible as possible to fans of the anime franchise. Recapturing the intensity of the anime was also at the core of the development process.

The idea was for people who understand Kill La Kill as an anime, to be able to pick up the game and immediately feel comfortable.


Interestingly the team wants to bring some of the storytelling elements Guilty Gear is known for into this game. The writer of the anime Kazuki Nakashima is very involved in overseeing the development process of the game and even wrote some chapters of the story. Basically, it’s an original story, but it’s official. The main character is actually going to be Satsuki, and the story is going to be focused around her.

The game will be playable at Tokyo Game Show 2017 in September, and a new character will be revealed there.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
