The release window is a somewhat vague “later this year”. PQube confirmed that the game will receive both a physical and a digital release.


As previously revealed, both Ryuko Matoi and Satsuki Kiryuin will have alternate versions in Kill la Kill the Game: IF; both of these alternate versions us the Dual Wield style. Arc System Works now revealed some more information on them. Credit goes to Gematsu for the translation below.

Ryuko Matoi (Dual Wield)

Alternate version of Ryuko Matoi. Retrieved the other half of the Rending Scissors from Nui, and dual-wields both blades for a wider range of attacks. Although dexterous and able to attack at all ranges, since her speed has slightly decreased to provide balance, the way she conducts herself during battle is vastly different from the normal Ryuko.
Her melee attacks are combo attacks that combine the Rending Scissors and martial arts. Players will be overcome with a sense of exhilaration when connecting combos with the dual-wielded Rending Scissors.
Her long-range attacks fire shock-waves an increased distance compared to normal Ryuko. With both range and power in tow, she is a highly all-purpose fighter.
Her break attack is a knee-strike jump attack. If it lands, she can follow up with a kick. This technique is a reproduction of the one she used in episode 22 of the TV anime, when she recovered the Rending Scissors.
Her special moves are powered-up versions of normal Ryuko’s moves. She can unleash powerful techniques such as the Rending Scissors’ Decapitation Mode and, although her speed has decreased, spinning slashes with the ability to drawn in the opponent.
