Arc System Works has finally given us a clearer picture of what to expect in the upcoming anime action title, Kill la Kill IF. The official website has been streaming the game’s first story mode which shows the Natural Selection arc of the anime storyline where Satsuki Kiryuin holds a battle royale amongst the students of Honnojiu Academy and a king-of-the-hill battle that pits Ryuko Matoi against the academy’s Elite Four.
The animation is nearly accurate to the anime thanks to Trigger’s involvement in the game. Original Kill la Kill writer Kazuki Nakashima returns to write an original story of the game, which is written as another episode. The “IF” refers to the in-game storyline that will diverge from the anime. The main protagonist will be Satsuki Kiryuin, rival and ally of Ryuko Matoi. Besides Satsuki and Ryuko, other playable characters include Ira Gamagoori, Uzu Sanageyama, Houka Inumuta, Nonon Jakuzure, Ragyō Kiryūin, and Nui Harime. Mako Mankanshoku and Ultimate Double Naked DTR will be added as free DLC.
Kill la Kill IF is published by Arc System Works in collaboration with anime studio Trigger and being developed by APLUS. The game launches July 25 in Japan and July 26 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC.
