A New 2D Crossover Fighter from the Creators of the World-Renowned Arcana Heart Series Makes its Way to North America, Boasting Intense Action, Gorgeous 2D Visuals, and Free DLC
Torrance, Calif. — February 2, 2016 — XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that its 2D crossover fighting game, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel, is now available in North America both physically and digitally on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, as well as digitally on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. Expertly developed by the studio behind the Arcana Heart series of fighting games, EXAMU, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel boasts an intuitively balanced game engine, stunning artwork and animation, and satisfyingly fast-paced fighting action sure to delight players of all skill levels.
As a way to thank early adopters and patient fans, XSEED Games is offering the game’s two DLC characters, Homura (from the SENRAN KAGURA series) and Aino Heart (from the Arcana Heart series), free of charge on the PlayStation®Store in North America for the first four weeks following the game’s launch. Starting March 1, Homura and Aino Heart will be available for $5.99 each or as a bundle for $9.99.
With 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 on-screen characters at a time, combat in Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is guaranteed to stay fast and flashy. The game is populated by numerous heroines from the visual novel company Nitroplus’ rich collection of IPs, including playable characters Ein, Mora, Ruili, Al Azif, Saya, Ignis, Anna, Muramasa the 3rd, Kibanohara Ethica, Saber, and Ouka, as well as fan favorite mascot character Super Sonico. Players can also test how their skills stack up online against one another via network play, with full cross-play compatibility on offer between PS4™ and PS3™ system 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 Gauges build at the bottom of the screen. Filling this gauge meter by meter, up to a maximum of three, allows players to gain access to devastating abilities, including character-specific super moves and a massively powerful “Lethal Blaze” attack that deals incredible damage but depletes all three meters.
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel also features an innovative “Blast” system, which provides players with the option 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.
Published in North America by XSEED Games, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is now available exclusively for the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 systems. The game carries a suggested retail price of $39.99 on the PS4™ system for both the physical and digital release, while the PS3™ system version is available exclusively on the PlayStation®Store at $29.99. This title has been rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB.
