XSEED Games has today announced the North American release of Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel. Recently announced in Japan for PS4 and PS3, this port of the popular 2D arcade fighting game by EXAMU is populated by numerous heroines from Nitroplus’ rich collection of IPs, as well as some yet-to-be-announced guest fighters whom Western audiences are sure to find especially enticing.
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.
Once players master the basics, they can see how their skills stack up online against other network players, with full cross-play between PS4 and PS3.
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is scheduled to launch this winter in North America.
More information about the game will be made available during E3. We’ll be there to check it out and will report back with more information as soon as we have it.
