Project Lumina

Saber – otherwise known as Artoria Pendragon – has been confirmed for Melty Blood: Type Lumina as the game’s final playable character, Project Lumina has announced. The character is voiced by Ayako Kawasumi.

Saber is a knight with braided blonde hair, shining blue and silver armor, plus “a somewhat cold attitude.” She founded the Knights of the Round Table. A well-known person from the legends of King Arthur, Saber wields the holy sword Excalibur. She ended up in this world without the use of a summoning ritual. Saber is now searching Souya for answers to this mystery.

Here’s a trailer for Saber in Melty Blood: Type Lumina:

Melty Blood: Type Lumina is only a week away on Switch, but the fighter has received its latest video that now introduces Red Arcueid and shows off some gameplay.

Thanks to Type Lumina, we have the following information about the character:

Melty Blood: Type Lumina has only a couple of weeks to go until launch, but Project Lumina and French-Bread just revealed Vlov Arkhangel as the game’s latest character. He’s the nineteenth of The Twenty-seven Dead Apostle Ancestors in Tsukihime.

According to the official website, Vlov is a Dead Apostle from the frozen lands of the far north who has arrived in the city of Souya. As a being starved of warmth, he feeds on blood for feed that he can then use to create flames. One of his abilities allows Vlov to switch from Flame Mode to Ice Mode when in danger. In doing so, his abilities are greatly expanded, “granting him nearly unrivaled strength.”

Melty Blood: Type Lumina is due out soon, September 30th to be exact. A second Akiha Tohno vs. Arcueid gameplay video has been released by Project Lumina. Check it out here, as well as an overview of the game after the break, as rounded up by Gematsu:

When Melty Blood: Type Lumina heads to Switch this month, it’ll be digital only in the west. However, there will be one way to pick up a physical version.

Melty Blood: Type Lumina is confirmed to be releasing physically in Japan. Even better, English support is included. That means you can pick up a copy and play it on your Switch regardless of region since the system is region free.

Michael Roa Valdamjong will be playable in Melty Blood: Type Lumina, publisher Project Lumina and developer French-Bread just announced. The character originates from the visual novel Tsukihime.

Michael Roa Valdamjong is a vampire who also goes by “Serpent of Akasha” or “Infinite Reincarnator”. He’s the former priest of the Holy Church, and can manipulate information and electricity at will. It’s said that “the story of Roa appearing in Souya that came to him predicts the possibilities he might have had following a chance encounter with Arcueid and Shiki.”
