Type-Moon announced a new character DLC for Melty Blood: Type Lumina for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch PC-via Steam.
The publisher revealed that Aoko Aozaki will be joining the title on January 13, 2022. The official website describes her as the successor to one of the five magicians of the world, though her prowess primarily lies in pure destruction. One of her more prominent aliases is ‘Magic Gunner.’ The protagonist of Tsukihime, Shiki, views her as his teacher thanks to her giving him glasses to suppress his Mystic Eyes. Throughout the trailer, Aoko is seen as a genuine force to be reckoned with. In addition to being a powerhouse regarding close-combat, she can also overwhelm foes with ranged magic.
Melty Blood 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 Japanese released remake of Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon. As such, this title will also act as a reboot for the fighting series, including HD environments and upgraded visuals reflecting the remake of the visual novel. French-Bread has also rebuilt the battle system to include multiple combos that can be pulled even by newcomers.
