XSeed Games have announced that Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel will launch with two free DLC characters for a limited time, as XSeed Games way of saying thank you to fans purchasing the new 2D fighting game. Guest characters Homura (SENRAN KAGURA series) and Aino Heart (Arcana Heart series) complete the roster of fierce female fighters fronting this game that’s set to launch in early 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system in North America.
The free DLC offer will run for four weeks after launch, after which the additional characters will be available for $5.99 each (or $9.99 for a bundle containing both) for both PS4 and PS3 systems on the PlayStation Store.
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is a port of the ever popular 2D arcade fighting game by Examu, populated by numerous heroines from Nitroplus’ rich collection of visual novel IPs, including playable characters Ein, Mora, Ruili, Al Azif, Saya, Ignis, Anna, Muramasa the 3rd, Kibanohara Ethica, Saber, Ouka, and Super Sonico, who will be playable for the very first time in this console release.
Between easy-to-execute combos, cinematic cut-ins on “Lethal Blaze” attacks that run the gamut from awe-inspiring to adorable, and assist mechanics that allow for up to six onscreen characters at a time, the development team at Examu, best known for their work on the popular Arcana Heart series, ensures that combat stays fast and flashy. Players can also check out how their skills stack up online against other network players, with full cross-play available between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 users.
Developed by Examu and published by XSeed Games, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is scheduled to launch in early 2016 in North America exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 systems. The game will cost a retail price of $39.99 on the PS4 system for both the physical and digital release, while the PS3 system version will be released digitally at $29.99.
