Type-Moon and French-Bread have announced that their 2D fighter Melty Blood: Type Lumina is currently free to play on Steam for the weekend. This news coincides with the title being 50% discounted on the same platform until August 10, 2023. The Deluxe Edition, containing the Melty Blood Archives, is also discounted by the same percentage both in that bundle and separately.

If you’re not a console player but have been wanting to give Melty Blood a shot, this is the ideal time to do so.

The fighting game also joined PlayStation Plus’ Game Catalog for those subscribed to the service’s Extra or Premium tiers.

Melty Blood: Type Lumina is a fighting game series that started as a doujin game back in 2002. It is developed as a collaboration between Type-Moon (TsukihimeFate/Stay Night) and French-Bread. (Under Night In-BirthDengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax)

This newest entry in the series is based on the recent Japan-exclusive remake of Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon. As such, this title acts as a reboot for the fighting series, including HD environments and upgraded visuals reflecting the remake of the visual novel. In addition, French-Bread has also rebuilt the battle system to include multiple combos that can be pulled even by newcomers.
