XSEED Games and Examu's upcoming fighter Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is set for release on February 2nd, and the publisher has released a new gameplay trailer showing off the plethora of gameplay mechanics found in the game.
In Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel, players will select a main character, including Super Sonico who will be playable for the first time in this console release, along with two partner characters from an array of Nitroplus-related products. Between the 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. The game also featured cross-network play between PS4 and PS3 users.
After selecting a main character, players will duke it out while charging up the abilities of their two chosen Partners, who "“ once called into the fight "“ will contribute with battle damage and various other effects. As the combatants exchange blows, their Power Gauge builds at the bottom of the screen. Filling this gauge meter by meter, up to a maximum of three, the players will then gain access to devastating abilities, including character-specific super moves and a massively powerful "Lethal Blaze" attack that deals incredible damage but costs all three meters.
The trailer also showcases the game's "Blast" mechanic, which allows players to use one of three special tide-turning maneuvers once per round, such as creating distance between the player character and her opponent, breaking an opponent's combo, and extending a player's combo beyond normal limits. Additionally, a player's health and meters both begin regenerating once the Blast state has been activated.
For all early buyers, XSEED Games will be offering the game's two DLC characters Homura (from "Senran Kagura") and Aino Heart (from "Arcana Heart") free of charge via the PlayStation Store for the first four weeks following their respective release dates. Starting March 1, both characters will be available to purchase for $5.99 individually or as a bundle for $9.99.
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel will be available on February 2 in North America on the PS4 and PS3. It will be available for $39.99 on the PS4 both at retail and digitally, or at $29.99 exclusively on the PlayStation Store on the PS3.
