Type-Moon have uploaded a new promotional video for the upcoming Melty Blood: Type Lumina confirming that the Michael Roa Valdamjong, will be returning to the roster. Roa is a dead apostle, a being that is essentially a vampire, who fulfills an antagonistic role in the story of Tsukihime and his moveset of lightning specials and aggressive strikes looks extremely fun to play. The only really scary thing about him is that his shorter hair makes him look somewhat like Steins;Gate‘s Okabe Rintarou.
You can read more information on him, and the other fighters on the roster, on the game’s official website.
You can watch his battle preview below.
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.
Melty Blood: Type Lumina will be released worldwide for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch on September 30, 2021. There are no plans for crossplay, but the title will feature rollback netcode.
