Melty Blood Type Lumina announced for PS4, Xbox One and Switch

10 posts in this topic

I love the Melty Blood series. Picked up the Steam release of AACC a couple years ago and was really excited when I heard they were remaking Tsukihime. The fact that this is going to have rollback is just icing on the cake. Maybe someday we’ll be lucky enough to get an official western release of the original F/SN vn, although I’m not holding my breath.

■ Characters

Hisui and Kohaku will be available as playable characters in Melty Blood: Type Lumina!

 

Hisui

Melty Blood: Type Lumina

A quiet, yet deeply affectionate maid.

 

A maid for the Tohno family, responsible for household chores (except cooking) and taking care of Shiki. She is Kohaku’s younger twin. Unlike her sister, she is known for wearing more modern, non-traditional clothing.

 

Her quiet nature makes her true feelings difficult to read, and her formal way of speaking has led Shiki to see her as being rather mechanical. Her fighting skills are not quite on the same level as her sister, but she holds her own well enough.

Kohaku

Melty Blood: Type Lumina

 

A young girl who brightens the Tohno residence with her smile.

 

She and her twin sister Hisui have worked for the Tohno family since they were young. Her trademark outfit is an apron over a classic kimono. Apart from assisting Akiha, she does household chores and tends the garden. Her pharmaceutical knowledge means she is also responsible for Shiki when he falls ill. She is endlessly cheerful, always willing to help, and wears a constant smile.

 

In battle, Kohaku can be seen wielding the sword she keeps hidden in her broom, calling on strange plants, and even dropping fire bombs from above as if by magic. How she is capable of such things is still a mystery to those around her.

Melty Blood: Type Lumina – Kouma Kishima Trailer (credit to Gematsu):

Quote

Melty-Blood-Type-Lumina_07-19-21.jpg

Project Lumina
has released a new trailer for Melty Blood: Type Lumina introducing playable character Kouma Kishima.

“With his guard breaking command throws and super armor that can both attack opponents while guarding from their attacks, [Kouma Kishima] boasts unparalleled strength in close-combat,” Project Lumina said. Here is his character description, via the game’s official website:

 

  • Head of the Kishima clan, a branch of the Tohno family. He is half demon. Even among mixed-bloods, his demon blood is strong, making him only barely human. Usually very quiet, he chooses to live as a hermit in a remote area of the mountains where he seeks to achieve spiritual enlightenment. Because of this, he often speaks of worldly ties and spirituality. His demeanor in battle, however, reflects his innate strength and demon blood. His ability to use Scorching Heat means those in his way are often burned to ash.

 

Melty Blood: Type Lumina is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam on September 30 worldwide.

Project Lumina
has released a new trailer for Melty Blood: Type Lumina introducing playable character Arcueid Brunestud.

“A powerful close-range fighter able to quickly rush in and overwhelm opponents with powerful Specials,” Project Lumina said.

 

Here is her character description, via the game’s official website:

  • A royal member of the vampire race known as the True Ancestors. After suffering through a traumatic event, a naively innocent side of her was somehow released. She now lives as a free-spirited, almost childish, princess. She is incredibly powerful and, despite being a vampire, is able to survive in direct sunlight. She has no desire to threaten human society, instead hunting other vampires known as Dead Apostles. While pursuing her greatest enemy, she arrives in Souya, where Shiki lives. Although a fateful encounter awaits her and Shiki here, a story of an earlier possibility is about to unfold.

 

Melty Blood: Type Lumina is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam on September 30 worldwide.

Project Lumina has released a new trailer for Melty Blood: Type Lumina introducing playable character Ciel. “A well-balanced fighter with many different skills for different situations and opponents, able to move freely across the stage with a huge variety of attacks,” Project Lumina said.
 

Here is her character description, via the game’s official website:

  • The Holy Church, a major religion in Europe, does not take kindly to heresy. Ciel works as an executor for its specialized force known as the Burial Agency. Her calling? Hunting and destroying heretics in the name of the Lord. Like Arcueid, she wishes to destroy her mortal enemy and has come to Souya in search of him, deciding to blend in by posing as a regular student at the same high school as Shiki. She currently attends school as a senior, one year above Shiki, and is quite popular with many of the students there. They see her as both warm and cheerful. Her go-to lunch from the school shop is curry bread, and her favorite restaurant serves the best curry in town.

 

Previous character trailers introduced Kouma Kishima and Arcueid Brunestud.

Project Lumina has released a new trailer for Melty Blood: Type Lumina introducing playable character Akiha Tohno. “Her battle style puts pressure on opponents and slowly wear them down with Specials that boast both a broad reach and powerful attack range,” Project Lumina said.
 

Here is her character description, via the game’s official website:
 

  • After the death of her father, she inherits the role of leader of the Tohno family, a distinguished house in Souya. One year younger than her brother Shiki, she arranged for his return from the Arima family. Her flawless etiquette and bearing perfectly epitomize the daughter of a noble house. She is strict even on herself, rejecting such things as modern-day amusements and frivolity. Because of her prideful and strong-willed nature, many find her difficult to approach. Sensing a mysterious presence in her town, and determined to uphold the Tohno family name, she sets off into the night to investigate…

 

Previous character trailers introduced Kouma Kishima, Arcueid Brunestud, and Ciel.
