Valkyrie Drive Project Announced, Brings on Senran Kagura Creator

Marvelous announced at AnimeJapan 2015 today that a brand new mixed-media project called Valkyrie Drive will be coming to various platforms. The project will feature a Vita game, a smartphone game, and a TV anime, according to the new website.

The Vita game called Valkyrie Drive Bhikkhuni is helmed by Senran Kagura creator Kenichirō Takaki, along with Hiraku Kaneko of Maken-Ki! fame, and as expected, featuring buxom anime girls. The upcoming issue of Weekly Famitsu is set to reveal (pardon the pun) new information about the Vita project.

The smartphone game Valkyrie Drive Siren is set to be a “beautiful girl sexy social game.” Details are scarce, but it sounds like it will be an action game. While in-game items will be available for purchase, the main gameplay will be free.

The final pillar of the project is the TV anime Valkyrie Drive Mermaid, produced by the studio ARMS and helmed by Yousuke Kuroda, who worked on anime like Mobile Suit Gundam 00 and Hayate the Combat Butler.

The early promotional art is just what you’d expect from the Senran Kagura creator, with scantily clad anime women all around. Check out the intro trailer and early press art below, but be warned, some of it is NSFW.
