Muv-Luv Dimensions (マブラヴ:ディメンションズ) is a free to play smartphone action RPG with gacha elements, released on July 11, 2023. It was initially released under the title Immortals: Muv-Luv Alternative on March 17, 2022 before shutting down indefinitely due to major bugs, and then relauched as Dimensions on July 11, 2023.

Background[]

A first live version of the game was introduced on âge's 20th anniversary broadcast in October 2019 by lead developer Kitakuou, after he has contacted series creator Yoshimune Kouki on Twitter about creating an action game in the Muv-Luv franchise. The original working title of the game was Project Immortal, mirroring the title of Project MIKHAIL .

After no updates for an entire year, Kitakuou appeared on the event Web Student Assembly in October 2020, dressed as Takamura Yui from Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse and apologized for the lack of progress, which was fueled in part by his own lack of discipline.

On the Web Student Assembly taking place in the following year in October 2021, Kitakuou appeared again, announcing the new title Immortals: Muv-Luv Alternative as well as confirming a release for 2021. First character art was also shared.

The game will be free to play on mobile devices and be financed by gacha mechanics. Details on how exactly these are to be implemented - apart from that players can unlock new characters - have not been revealed yet.

Setting[]

In a present day alternative timeline in which BETA attack humanity and the main character, a director working for the eponymous private military company "Immortals" is tasked with recapturing Yokohama after a BETA hive was constructed there.

The cast is made up of characters that appear in the Muv-Luv trilogy and its various side stories such as Schwarzesmarken and Total Eclipse as well as an array of original characters. For the characters that appear in the main trilogy, the voice actors from the anime adaptation reprise their roles.

Gameplay[]

The gameplay is divided in story sections that are presented similar to the visual novel with character sprites, as well as Action RPG fight scenes in an isometric 3D perspective. Players can make up squads of up to four characters with an additional four characters acting as support and choose their prefered TSF and weapon loadouts. Players move along the battlefield evading and decimating hordes of BETA using standard attacks and character-specific skills such as Ikaruga's EML-99X Electromagnetic Induction Launcher. Enemies drop weapons and sub weapon systems that can be used to inflict additional passive damage. The strength of each piece of equipment depends on its item level. During the gameplay, players are also rewarded with resources that can be used to manufacture TSFs.
