Nitroplus Blasters adds four new faces to its extensive roster


Saya x another video game = my OTP

Nitroplus Blasters: Heroines Infinite Duel has added some new faces to its roster, and they're pretty awesome. Saber of Fate/Zero and Ethica Kibanohara of Tokyo Necro have been announced as playable characters in the upcoming fighting game featuring Nitroplus visual novel and anime characters. In addition, Super Sonico (Nitroplus' mascot character) and Akane Tsunemori (Psycho-Pass) will be included as support.

Unfortunately, the game is still relegated to Japanese arcade status, without a console release in sight. You know it'll eventually happen, though. And when it does, I'm going to be petitioning everyone to give it to us poor folks who can't read the ol' kanji. 

This rounds out the lineup as such:

Playable Characters

  • Ein (Phantom of the Inferno
  • Mora (Kyuuketsu Senki Vjedogonia
  • Sansei Muramasa (Full Metal Daemon: Muramasa
  • Ruili (Kikokugai: The Cyber Slayer)
  • Saya (Saya no Uta
  • Ignis (Jingai Makyo
  • Anna (Gekko no Carnevale
  • Saber (Fate/Zero
  • Ethica Kibanohara (Tokyo Necro)

Partner Characters

  • Natsumi Aibara (Hello, World)
  • Another Blood (Kishin Hishou Demonbane
  • Ishima Kaigen (Hanachirasu
  • Dragon (Dra+Koi
  • Franco Il Nero (Zoku Satsuriku no Django: Jigoku no Shoukinkubi
  • Supika (Star Mine Girl
  • Miyuki Sone (Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi
  • Aoi Mukou (Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi
  • Yoishi Mitsurugi (Phenomeno
  • Althea (Hakubou no Dendoushi
  • Mugen Yoguruma (D.Y.N. Freaks
  • Angela Balzac (Expelled from Paradise
  • Super Sonico (Super Sonico
  • Akane Tsunemori (Psycho-Pass

File this one under "I hope it's coming to the west, but who knows if it actually will?" Nitroplus Blasters is a game I've been consistently keeping up with for a while now, especially since it's an arcade fighter with a playable character from one of my favorite games of all time: Saya no Uta.

Plenty of other characters from the Nitroplus stable will be available as well, but she's the one I'm looking forward to the most, for obvious reasons. Maybe it's the fact that she turns into a writhing mass of cells in battle, or that the creators thought to include her at all. Either way, I'll probably see about getting my hands on this game somehow, whether it comes westward or not.
