Nikke: The Goddess of Victory Release Date – What We Know So Far

Nikke: The Goddess of Victory Release Date

Nikke: The Goddess of Victory is one of two upcoming games from developer Shift Up. The studio behind the successful mobile RPG Destiny Child is working on this third-person shooter for Android and iOS, but also on the very ambitious single-player action RPG Project EVE. Shift Up is a company founded by Hyung-Tae Kim, former art director on Blade & Soul, and the stylish and appealing visuals are patent in every one of their games. Kim Hyung-seop, the main illustrator for Destiny Child, is also working on Nikke: The Goddess of Victory. After what seemed like an eternity without any update on this game – it was an entire year, after all -, we finally have a new trailer showcasing the gameplay improvements. Sadly, the butt jiggling during shooting was nerfed, but the positive side is that now it won't distract you as much. So, what do we know about the Nikke: The Goddess of Victory release date?

What is the Nikke: The Goddess of Victory Release Date?

The original announcement mentioned the plan for a global release in 2020, but that target is by and large missed. However, with the release of the new gameplay video that you can watch at the end of this post, things seem to finally be moving along smoothly.

This leads us to believe that the Nikke: The Goddess of Victory release date is planned for 2021, but there are some things that need to be taken into consideration. For starters, Shift Up released Destiny Child in Korea first, followed by Japan, and only then the global release happened. It's not to say that the studio is going to follow the exact same plan, but it's a case worth mentioning.

The other scenario, and certainly the most appealing one, is that the touted global release could actually be global in the strict sense of the word. A simultaneous worldwide release that would please every gamer would be the ideal scenario, and since both the gameplay video and new screenshots show some traces of English language, who knows if this isn't the plan.

Nikke: The Goddess of Victory tells the story of a distant future where the humanity was driven underground by an invading alien race. The development of battle androids gives us hope, as these soldiers will take on the invaders by every means possible. The cherry on top is that the androids are designed like cute waifus, but knowing Destiny Child, it doesn't mean that male androids won't be added into the game in future updates.
