Giant robots and monstrous aliens will once again be battling it out for the planet Earth in the new Muv-Luv Alternative: Schwarzesmarken anime, which will be making its premiere this 10 January. To bring further hype up to the latest addition to the Muv-Luv franchise, a new PV has finally been released:

The video highlights the 666th Division’s battle to repel the invading BETA, which have been attacking several cities on Earth. A new TVCM has also been broadcast in Japan, this time, giving us a taste of the anime’s OP song, “white forces” by fripSide.

Muv-Luv Schwarzesmarken’s story takes place 18 years before the events of Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse, and like Total Eclipse, is based on a spin-off novel for the popular Muv-Luv Alternative visual novels. The story will follow the 666th Division in 1983. The anime adaptation is slated to premiere on 10 January 2016, and will be directed by Zone of Enders’ Tetsuya Watanabe over at Liden Films and Ixtl.
