Marvelous has published the first non-watermarked screenshots, as well as some new gameplay information, for their newly revealed PS Vita game, Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni. We’ve compiled all of the information below.
Ranka Kagurazaka (shown above left, voice by Kanae Ito)
- Age: 15
- Birthday: August 19
- Blood Type: AB
- Height: 161
- Cup Size: G
- Dimensions: B89-W53-H81
She’s the younger sister of the Rinka. She’s quite focused and yet bubbly, while also sporting a boyish, hot-blooded personality. She tends to charge into battle head-first, with her fists flying ahead of her. Both her and her older sister are extremely sensitive to being touched anywhere on their bodies.
Rinka Kagurazaka (shown above right, voice by Aya Suzaki)
- Age: 16
- Birthday: August 1
- Blood Type: BO
- Height: 158
- Cup Size: H
- Dimensions: B93-W57-H84
The older sister Ranka, she’s always smiling and is kind-hearted. Despite her nice personality, she has tremendous power stemming from her pure heart, so much so that she is able to strike fear into her younger sister. She battle her enemies with a Japanese sword, and she leaves a pleasant fragrance in her trail as she traverses the landscape.
Momo Kuzuryu (shown above left, voiced by Yoko Hikasa)
- Age: 14
- Birthday: November 9
- Blood Type: AB
- Height: 155
- Dimensions: B86-W54-H83
Momo is a stoic girl with a humble voice, and a cat-like figure. She’s an amnesiac fighting towards the slim glimmer of hope of finding out her past, and who she really is. She constantly doubts herself, and brandishes a spear in battle. Momo is always looking for knowledge, and upon finding something interesting, dwells on the subject matter for hours.
Mana Inagawa (shown above right, voiced by Yumi Hara)
- Age: 17
- Birthay: February 28
- Blood Type: AA
- Height: 167
- Dimensions: B92-W56-H85
Mana is a nurturing, lax girl that is essentially the group’s go-between. She is able to transform each strand of her hair into individual arrows, making her a formidable enemy capable of firing arrows through weaknesses in her foes defenses. She’s always able to make people smile, however, an ability that may possibly be her greatest strength.
Fans can expect the game to unfold in two parts: action, and adventure. The action parts are in full 3D, and you have to defeat enemies while also completing objectives. In combat, the girls are able to use their Synchronization, which they can also improve. You can achieve this via Multi-Step Weaponization, altered combos, conversations, and more. If you land powerful special attacks, you’ll destroy the clothes of enemies and friends alike.
There has been a lot of focus on the gameplay sequences where the girls team up by having one girl transforming into a weapon, which are called “Drives.” When you activate a Drive, a sexy cut-in animation will invade your screen. There’s a lot to the “sexy hyper battles,” most notably the Boob Ranking system, although details will be coming later.
Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni is hitting Playstation VIta some time this year in Japan.
