If you search on DDNet for a review of Valkyrie Drive -Bhikkhuni-, you won’t find one. The PlayStation Vita game was refused classification down here in Australia by our delightful censorship board, so none of us got to play it.

So here’s the great news: The game is coming to PC. That will, we hope, make it easier for those of us that aren’t insane prudes to enjoy the luscious goodness that the game offered. It worked for Monster Monpiece, at any rate.
Developed by Marvelous, Valkyrie Drive -Bhikkhuni- is a game about super busty, super sexy school girls battling one another in super fast action combat. If that sounds like Marvelous’ Senran Kagura series, then fair enough, there’s possibly a passing resemblance between the two, but who’s actually going to complain about that.
Here’s the story, because we know you’re going to play it for the story, based on the press release:
In VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI- a mysterious virus known as the A-Virus infects young women, transforming them into weapons known as ‘Extars’, or those that control ‘Extars’,’Liberators’ — however, the voluptuous Valkyries are infected with a unique strain, the VR-Virus, allowing them to take on either role at will. Proving incredibly difficult to cure, they are sent to the sun-soaked Bhikkhuni Island for quarantine where a treatment is put into place. By having the Valkyries engage in combat against one another, they can strengthen both body and mind to allow them greater control of the Virus. Who runs the island? What is the secret of the Virus? Will you choose Order or Chaos? This and more will be answered throughout your time with VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI-.
The game will launch with a number of enhancements for PC (1080p, 60FPS, Steam cloud saves, trading cards, achievements and backgrounds). All the DLC that was released for the game on Vita will also be available for purchase.
Most importantly, though, Australians might finally get a chance to play the game. F*** the dimwits at the Classification Board.
