Muv-Luv Alternative is a science fiction visual novel developed by Age as part of its Muv-Luv franchise. Originally published for Windows in 2006 with both eroge and non-explicit versions, it later received Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 ports published by 5pb.


Muv-Luv Alternative is a retelling of the events that occurred in Muv-Luv Extra and Muv-Luv Unlimited. As the erstwhile protagonist of the previous games, Takeru Shirogane, the player begins the game in the exact same way as Muv-Luv Unlimited started: Waking up in an alternate timeline where the human race is locked in a desperate battle against alien invaders. However, the Shirogane still retains his memories of the events that occurred in Muv-Luv Unlimited and sets himself to the task of changing what he knows will be humanity's doomed future.


  • The creator of Attack on Titan, Hajime Isayama, has stated in interviews that Muv-Luv Alternative served as a major influence on the now hugely popular manga series. Isayama stated that, "Although I was watching manga and movies normally like anyone else, [Alternative] was the the first time I thought I could actually be killed by the creator of a work of fiction. Being impacted by such a malicious attitude, as if I too had been killed, I was driven by an impulse of wanting to launch something with a strong impact into society, or wanting to destroy something. I realized that impulse was what I wanted to do." [1]
  • Muv-Luv Alternative is infamous for its Engrish voice acting during the game's opening credits sequence where English speaking soldiers, being voiced by Japanese actors, are investigating a BETA stronghold. However, when Alternative was localized by Degica Games in 2017 the introduction was completely re-recorded by native English speakers with dialogue that was closer to the original Japanese subtitles. Some of the talent used in the re-recorded scene include George Ledoux, who is known for doing several character voices in MechWarrior 4 including fan favorite commentator: Duncan Fisher, and Amber Lee Connors, who voiced Beli Lapran in HuniePop as well as Ginger from Dust: An Elysian Tail.
