This is Melty Blood: Type Lumina, the latest addition to the 2D fighting series many know and love. This brilliant entry into the franchise hits all the notes of the previous titles and improves on a lot of it too. Take the stage once again with all the dramatic battles that you could possibly hope for. This game takes a bold step forward for, not just the franchise, but the genre as a whole. Prepare yourself for some fantastic multiplayer combat madness in this masterfully crafted fighting game. Let’s go ahead and get into it.
Alright so Melty Blood is a fighting game. That means you spend a significant amount of time working on trying out different characters, working on combos, seeing what works best for the combat type you like.
With this colorful cast of characters, you can switch things up like never before and really get into the iconic battle system these games are known for. Make use of all the characters abilities with aerial combos, shields, magic circuits, arc drives, and last arcs. There are also a few new powerful techniques with the Moon Skill System. That might make sense to some of the people reading this. To the others, I guess you’ll have to play it and see what I’m talking about.
I cannot deny that this game has been masterfully crafted. Every aspect of the battle system and controls is so tight and well-designed. I had a fantastic time trying out all the different characters and learning about their skills. At no point did I lose a match and think it was the game’s fault, I always knew that it was due to an inherent lack of skill and nothing else. To get your players to think that, and not that every problem they encounter is the game being badly made, means they were doing something right when they made it. Melty Blood functions a lot like Street Fighter V, BlazBlue Centralfiction, and Dragonball Fighter Z. Simple in their concept but excellently crafted.
And don’t worry, there is an online mode where you can go after you train for days, only to have your ass beat by the first person you match with. A classic online experience for most games.
The story is based on the events of Tsukihime, but each of the characters have unique story events, making each playthrough feel genuinely unique, and leaving a positive impact on the overall experience. I found the game to be truly enjoyable and the story was very easy to follow, making the whole experience smooth and satisfying.
The visuals for Melty Blood: Type Lumina are absolutely stunning. Everything has been purposefully animated, frame by frame, in a way that few games bother to make. Each of the characters look absolutely fantastic with HD graphics and animation sequences provided by noted studio A-1 Pictures.
A fantastic fighting game and a wonderful entry to the franchise. A must play if you like anime fighting games.
