UPDATE: In a response to a question from our reader Andrew Simpson, PQube Games have confirmed that the game will feature both the original Japanese audio, and an English language dub. It has currently yet to be confirmed whether the cast of the anime’s English dub will be reprising their roles.
Original Article: Kill la Kill IF, the upcoming 3D action game based on Studio Trigger’s hit anime, is coming to Europe later this year, the publisher PQube Games announced this morning.
From Arc System Works (BlazBlue, Dragon Ball FighterZ) and A+ Games (Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time), the game will allow fans to relive the hit 2013 anime, and also include a brand new original story from the series’ original writer. The game will be released on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC and Steam, with pQube clarifying on Twitter that the game will be released both physically and digitally.
The first original TV anime project from Studio Trigger, the series was first broadcast in 2013 and simulcast in the United Kingdom by the now-defunct Wakanim UK. The series was released on DVD and Blu-ray by Anime Limited, who describe the original series’ story as:
Honnouji Academy – where the school is ruled by students clad in special outfits called Goku Uniforms. Deriding the student body as ‘pigs in human clothing’ Student Council President Satsuki Kiryuin, along with her loyal underlings, the Elite Four, has the academy under their absolute control.
One day, a vagrant schoolgirl named Ryuko Matoi appears and tries to get Satsuki, who recognizes her Scissor Blade, to talk. Was their encounter a mere coincidence or fate? The clash between the two will soon consume the whole academy!
