- Every character in the game will be receiving new moves.
- Arcueid and Ciel will be receiving new story modes.
- Type Lumina characters will be receiving new color slots.
- The release date for the event.
Moving onto details regarding the announcements, TYPE-MOON announced that every single character in Melty Blood: Type Lumina will be receiving brand new moves. This news was followed by previous trailers we were shown, but the news of every character receiving new moves is huge and will drastically affect the game. This really mixes up the gameplay of Type-Lumina and changes a lot.
Along with the announcement of new moves, TYPE-MOON also announced that the characters of Arcueid and Ciel will be receiving new story modes. Although this isn’t really the latest news, as it was announced yesterday by Kinoko Nasu, but it’s still nice to have a proper announcement. Along with this, TYPE-MOON that each character will be receiving five new color slots, as well as three more custom color slots. For people who want to give their Melty characters a new look, this is great, but not the most exciting news in the world.
The last announcement was regarding the release date of the update, which also includes the free DLC characters of Mash and Neco-Arc. While the latter was a controversial decision, it’s still clear to see it has gotten a fair bit of attention put on the game by people less familiar with Melty. Regardless, the release date for the update has been announced to be August 19th, 2022 on next week’s Friday.
Here’s a bit regarding what fans have to say about the new announcements:
It’s reassuring to know everyone’s getting something new in some capacity, i think one of the complaints some people had was the characters felt too similar but with the devs knowing this i have high hopes for the new directions they take the characters
