Developers of Melty Blood: Type Lumina, French Bread announces one of the newest characters in the game’s second season, Mash Kyrielight from Fate/Grand Order.
Melty Blood: Type Lumina is a 2021 sequel/reboot to the original PC fighting game Melty Blood from 2002. Melty Blood takes characters from Type-Moons visual novel from 2000, Tsukihime. Type Lumina’s release coincides with the Tsukihime remake from 2021.
As a Type-Moon series, Tsukihime, and Melty Blood are connected with the massive Fate franchise. Saber, also from the Fate franchise is also a playable character in Type Lumina.
The announcement is coming early, days before EVO 2022. Melty Blood: Type Lumina will be one of the nine major games in the lineup. Sony has made the announcement of the live stream, the EVO lounge live show. The stream promises reveal from developers such as Arc System Works, Capcom, SNK, and Bandai Namco.
Another Fate Guest Character
Mash Kyrielight originates from the famous mobile gacha game Fate/Grand Order. One of the game’s main characters and the player’s first servant for battle. Similar to her origin as a shielder in Fate/Grand Order, Mash will be using her shield as her primary weapon.
She seems to be primarily a close-range character that features long-range specials. The first special shown in the teaser shows her charging toward the opponent. Her second special move shows her using it immediately after her first, in which she throws her shield.
As Melty Blood is a soft crossover series for Type-Moon franchises, Mash will be the second character from Fate to join Melty Blood: Type Lumina. Other Type-Moon novels such as The Garden of Sinners have made an appearance in Melty Blood in the past. Shiki Ryougi, the protagonist of The Garden of Sinners was previously a playable character in Melty Blood Actress Again.
Mash Kyrielight, like all characters from season one, will be free DLC. All season two characters will also be free upon release.
Melty Blood parody character Neco-Arc will be the other character a part of the announcement of Season 2. There is no confirmation on the official release date for either Neco-Arc or Mash Kyrielight.
Characters such as Neco-Arc and Mash will likely bring even more eyes to Melty Blood. While Neco-Arc originates from Tsukihime and Melty Blood, she has since become a meme icon. Fate/Grand Order is also one of the most popular and successful mobile games of all time.
French-Bread plans on releasing them this summer. Two more characters will be a part of season two and will release this winter.
