Game Information

Available on:PlayStation VitaDec 10, 2015

Publisher: Sony

Genres: Action, RPG

Valkryie Drive is Marvelous' new cross-media franchise from Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki consisting of a planned TV anime, the PS Vita title Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni, and a 'social game.'The PS Vita title takes place in a world where teenagers, or those in their twenties, suddenly find themselves infected with a mysterious virus that temporarily turns their very bodies into weapons. The title's main story revolves around a group of girls known as "Rebreakers" who are able to wield these newly transformed weapons. Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni is split into two different gameplay parts, action gameplay and adventure gameplay: Action gameplay is described as '3D battle action' and consists of fighting swarms of enemy forces in teams of two - one who turns into a weapon and the other wielding it. As the girls fight together, their synchronization increases and certain aspects such as their weapons, combos, and dialogue can change. Additionally, players can perform special attacks that tear up the clothes of both allies and enemies. The adventure gameplay is how players will interact with other characters, with the base of character interaction set in the 'Cafeteria.' In the Cafeteria players are able to talk with other characters, including events that raise each other's mutual affection levels. Additionally there is a 'Communication Room,' where players can change each character's clothing, underwear, hairdo, and accessories. The Communication Room also serves as the location for the 'touching' portion of the game during costume changes. Depending on the experience points you earn, your 'Oppai Rank' will rise, and you can get title and mini-game challenge tickets.

Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni reminds me a lot of Senran Kagura Burst in that it feels like a rough draft of greater things to come. The combat is there, and the game looks amazing, but with an overabundance of uninteresting plot and a lack of original or compelling personalities, I found myself skipping over more of the game than I should have in order to keep myself entertained.

Valkyrie Drive is an incredibly fun and addictive game. While it doesn’t have the same crazy narrative or visual flair as a Devil May Cry or Bayonetta, it certainly shares their vibrant and satisfying combat. Valkyrie Drive is also a game very focused on fan service, and overt sexual themes. For some people, that will be a deal breaker, but if that’s right up your alley and you’re looking for the next great touchscreen supporting Vita classic, then look no further than Valkyrie Drive.

Thousands of enemies ready to fight... and to be undressed by our character. A hack'n slash full of sexual content but also deep and fun... and visually poor.

If you’ve been craving more Senran Kagura after Estival Versus or just want a fun brawler with anime titillation, Valkyrie Drive is for you.
