‘Kill la Kill: IF’ Gets new Update and Fighter

  • Currently available now on PlayStation 4 and PC.
  • Nintendo Switch owners will have to wait longer.
  • New fighter is free.


Developer APlus Games and publisher Arc System Works have released the version 1.05 update for Kill la Kill: IF on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. This update adds free additional playable character Mako Mankanshoku to the roster. The Nintendo Switch version is expected to get a major update in December. This version is behind due to the late start the developers got on Nintendo’s hybrid console. Full patch notes for version 1.05 can be read here.

If you’re unfamiliar with Mako Mankanshoku, she’s a second year student at Honnouji Academy. Fans of the series know she is an airhead who brings a ton of comedic moments to the anime. There are highlight reels on social media based on her unbelievable actions, and Mako never shocks the people around her. Even though she and Ryuko just meet in the series, she claims they are best friends. Fans of the series, did you like her as a character? Are you excited to play as her? Some of the updates are as follows:

New Contents:

  • Added new playable character, “Mako Mankanshoku.”
  • *Playable in all versus modes and Gallery mode.

Balance changes:

  • Adjusted the actions of each characters.
  • Fixed a bug where displayed damage values weren’t added for some moves.

Universal Balance changes

  • Fixed a bug where SP gauge spenders could sometimes be used even when the SP gauge was not quite full enough.
  • Fixed a bug where in training mode, enemies hit by certain attacks would go through damage animations after their position was reset.
  • Fixed camera issues in training mode and tutorial mode.

Kill la Kill: IF is a fantastic 3D arena fighter based upon one of the best anime released. Just like the anime, Kill la Kill: IF is a thrill ride from start to finish. The roster began small, with only ten fighters, but has been slowly adding more for players to enjoy. It wasn’t too long ago that we got Ultimate Double Naked DTR, and Mako Mankanshoku has just launched. The saving grace of the roster, is that despite being so small, each character is diverse and plays drastically differently. Have you been enjoying Kill la Kill: IF?

If you haven’t picked up Kill la Kill: IF yet, and want to, I definitely recommend you watch the anime first. Everyone else, who would you like to see join the roster?
