Marvelous Might Consider a PC Port of Uppers if Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni Performs Well on Steam

on May 4, 2017 2:15 PM

There are a few games that western Vita owners often request a localization for: one of these game is producer of Senran Kagura Kenichiro Takaki’s action title Uppers.

Originally release in July of 2016 in Japan, Uppers features a group fighting starved males battling it out for the fun of it. The game takes place on an island called “Last Resort Island” where there are no consequences for fighting or rules on how you can win. So in theory, if you wanted to pick up a barrel and use it as a weapon, you could.

In addition to the fighting, players are able to impress girls that are watching the fight, and this includes the option to motor boat the members of the crowd for a power bonus.

Recently, Marvelous announced that Valkyrie Drive -Bhikkhuni- will be making its way to PC, remastered in 1080p and 60FPS, this Summer.

The announcement got many fans talking about a possibility of Uppers receiving the same treatment, and DualShockers took the opportunity to ask Marvelous Europe if this could happen, to which the team replied:

“When speaking about remasters to Japan we did speak about Uppers. We were informed that the game was developed differently to VALKYRIE DRIVE and as such there would be a much larger cost and time investment involved in remastering the experience for PC, and that isn’t even accounting for the cost of localisation. Obviously with a much higher cost it comes with much more risk. Perhaps this is a discussion we can bring up again in the future pending the results of VALKYRIE DRIVE on Steam.”

Stay tuned for the full interview where we discuss bringing Valkyrie Drive -Bhikkhuni- to PC and the game’s reception outside of Japan.
