Fetch the Band-Aids

I’m positive I wasn’t the one fight-fan left each shocked and delighted at last week’s news that the cult preventing recreation collection Melty Blood was getting set to make its return. After all, it has been a few years for the reason that schoolyard sluggers final stepped into the ring. But it is true, the anime preventing franchise is returning in 2021, with the discharge of Melty Blood: Type Lumina.

Developer French-Bread has adopted up its announcement with a model new teaser trailer, giving us our first have a look at the sequel in motion. There’s a lot of filler right here, and sadly the heightened presentation type hides a lot of the motion, however we are able to see Melty Blood‘s trademark 2D anime visuals, in addition to some fairly slick animation and particular results. It’s simply a begin, nevertheless it’s an encouraging one.

Melty Blood: Type Lumina will sport a model new engine, HD visuals, and can function a roster of round 10 characters, with the sport’s roster, levels, and total narrative tailored from the upcoming visible novel Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon. French-Bread has said that Type Lumina will function a vary of new battle mechanics however will retain the tempo and gameplay collection fans have grown used to. One new mechanic, “Rapid Beat,” sounds a little auto-comboy, which leaves me questioning whether or not the studio is hoping Type Lumina will seize a wider viewers of gamers than is typical of the collection.

Melty Blood: Type Lumina is predicted to launch later in 2021 on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
