Not many anime are as equally popular and controversial as Kill la Kill. Since its debut back in 2013, the show has been lauded for its unparalleled sense of style, humor, and intense action. On the other hand, it has also been criticized for its depiction of female characters and its inconsistent storytelling. Such factors should make adapting it into a video game an intimidating process. Yet famed publisher Arc System Works has stepped up to the plate, collaborating with developer Aplus to bring the anime to life in a new fighting game, entitled Kill la Kill: IF. Better yet, the show’s original creators, Studio Trigger, have overseen the game’s creation. Now the question remains: with such pedigree behind its creation, can the game keep from losing its way?

Arc System Works appears to be bringing Damascus Gear Operation Osaka to Switch. The hack-and-slash game has been rated for the console in Taiwan, suggesting that there are future plans.

Damascus Gear Operation Tokyo released on Switch last year. As for Operation Osaka, it was first made available on PS4 and PS Vita before appearing on Steam.

20 minutes of footage has arrived for the Switch version of Kill la Kill: IF. Take a look at the gameplay in the video below.
