Kill la Kill Game Gets New Trailer, is Coming to PlayStation 4 and PC in 2019

Kill la Kill The Game: IF is a fighting game which features the art style and characters from the hit anime show

During Anime Expo 2018, the new Kill la Kill fighting game was detailed, and a new gameplay trailer was shown off. It’s called “Kill la Kill The Game: IF, and will release on PS4 and PC in 2019.

A gameplay trailer was shown off at Anime Expo 2018, which shows off the gorgeous art direction the game borrows from the anime. It looks to be a blend of 2D and 3D fighting game tropes, with characters using weapons and epic special moves to battle it out.

Kill la Kill The Game: IF is being developed by Arc System Works, the team behind the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue franchises. It also developed this year’s DragonBall FighterZ, which was praised by critics for being an awesome adaptation of the iconic anime series.

Trigger, the studio behind the anime is helping out with the project, which is probably why it seems to absolutely nail the show’s gritty and violent aesthetic. Kill la Kill The Game: IF will be playable at EVO 2018, which takes place August 3-5, 2018.

For the uninitiated, Kill la Kill follows a schoolgirl named Ryuko Matoi, as she searches for her Father’s killer. It takes place in a fictional school in Tokyo, where students are given superhuman abilities through Goku uniforms. Ryuko eventually gets her hands on one of these powerful uniforms, a sentient sailor-uniform named Senketsu. It originally ran for a total of 24 episodes, before concluding back in 2014.

We’ll no doubt be hearing more details as we get closer to launch, most likely at EVO 2018. We’ll keep you updated with any developments as we get them.
