In a wonderful piece of news for 2D fight-fans, developer French-Bread has officially announced a brand new entry in is cult anime fighting game series Melty Blood. Launching later in 2021 for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, Melty Blood: Type Lumina will see new and returning characters square up for magical melee action.
The new sequel, the first major release since 2011’s Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code, will retain the typical 2D one-on-one fighting action that is the series’ trademark, but will be built upon an entirely new engine for the franchise’s HD visual debut. Players will be able to choose from one of 10 initial characters – including new battlers taken from the upcoming visual novel Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon, which launches in August. The smaller overall roster reflects the new game’s distinctly adaptive nature, focusing purely on the upcoming VN’s narrative and cast.
