Muv-Luv Alternative: Strike Frontier gets an April Fool event that pays homage to a popular anime, while DMM increased SSR and SR percentages.

DMM has implemented a new event in its mobile Muv-Luv game Muv-Luv Alternative: Strike Frontier, in order to celebrate April Fool’s day. Yet, it’s not a joke, but it’s certainly rather funny.

Hakuryo High School against a Black Shiba Inu Academy in TSF battles, and from the looks of it, including paint schemes and uniforms it’s definitely a homage to Girls und Panzer.

It doesn’t appear to be an official crossover like the Attack on Titan one, but the references are evident. After all, like Muv-Luv served as a source of inspiration for Attack on Titan, it can also be considered a precursor to the military girls trend that the Japanese tend to love.

As usual, the event comes with “free” SSR units that can be achieved simply by playing. The first is a Hope-type Lise Hoenstein in Black Shiba Inu Academy uniform, while the second is a Technique-type Mig-21 Balalaika, again in Black Shiba Inu Academy colors.

More new SSRs are available via gacha from the Hakuryo High School side, including a Despair-type Misaki Takamori, and Power-type Katia Waldheim and Type-77 Gekishin.

Perhaps the most interesting element is a new change that will extend past this event, and it’s a change in gacha percentages. SSR rates are being increased from 1.5% to 2%, SR rates from 10% to 15%, while HR and R rates are getting decreased. This solidifies the game’s rather uncharacteristic (for DMM) position as one of the more “generous” in the mobile scene.

Muv-Luv Alternative: Strike Frontier is currently available for iOS, Android, and on browsers for PC.
