Marvelous has announced new gameplay details and release information for their upcoming action title Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni.

First up, we have a look at the Cafeteria – your base of operations;


This is where you can mingle with other characters, witness events (to raise your affection levels), and access the Communications Room.

In the Communication Room area you can change your hair, customize your clothing, pick out some underwear, and adorn yourself in accessories to find your favourites…


…but you can also use the room to up the affection level of each girl by touching them while swapping out their costumes.

Depending on how well you do and how many experience points you get in return, your “Oppai Rank” (aka; “breast rank”) will then increase – granting you rewards like a new title or tickets for use in mini-games.

That’s all we’ve got with regards to gameplay details, but let’s take a look at some release details instead, shall we?


Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni is set to release in Japan on December 10th, priced at 6,980 yen for the standard version. A limited edition “Nyuu Nyuu DX Pack” will also be available for 8,480 yen, and will include;

  • A limited edition illustrated box by Warai Manakakko
  • A visual book featuring both character designs and illustrations
  • An original soundtrack CD
  • A special drama CD
  • Valkyrie Drive limited edition original packaging


Those who pick up Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni early – in either standard or limited edition – will get the “Mermaid,” “Bhikkhuni,” and “Siren” swimsuit costumes for free, each based on an artificial island of the same name featured in the game.

That’s it for now, but I have to ask – have I gotten your blood pumping yet? 😉

    I sure hope this comes west. C’mon, Marvelous, don’t fail me now!

    • Kaboom

      If they brought over Senran Kagura, this isn’t off the table. I hope. And I hope the costumes here also come over. Heck, I’ll take it as DLC, I just want this game!

      • Death Metal

        Yeah, but check back in 2019 and then they may be announcing it for 2022. Stay tunned.

        • Kaboom

          C’mon, have some faith. We know XSeed won’t bother with the feminazis.

          • Death Metal

            Xseed may pick this up. My problem with them is that they have no concern with time at all. If Marvelous localization efforts could be handled by some other company, like Aksys, I would be much, much more excited.

  • Kaboom

    Was wondering what happened to this. Good to see it’s still a thing!

    Bhikkhuni : Bikini
    Now that’s just Marvelous.

    Is it too much to ask for a little bust variance in these games :v
    Senran Kagura has well over 20 characters, but only 1.5 flat characters, and no middleground.
    Its kinda boring.

    • Kenichiro Takaki said in an interview that small breast physics are harder to accomplish; therefore, you can thank physics and slow gaming systems for little/no flat women in his games. 😉

      • Chizu

        I’m pretty sure its just cause they use the same physics model for every character and don’t want to have to adjust their physics sliders per character :v
        Dude just needs an excuse for moar boob.

    The graphics for this game are gorgeous!
