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 (Tsukihime, Fate/Stay Night) and French-Bread. (Under Night In-Birth, Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax)
This newest entry of 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.
