Okay, that was unexpected, its been forever since we had a Melty Blood game, I thought they had forgotten those. Still, good to see it being brought back, I just wish those screenshots were bigger.

I haven't been hyped for a fighting game in a long while. I'm super glad this game is going to be released globally.

Also it's only a small change, but adding those white tassel things onto Ciel's design makes me like her Remake church attire 1000x more.

Sion's not going to be in the game apparently. Sad.

Apparently this game takes place before the events of the Remake as a "what if?" scenario as opposed to the original Melty which was a sort of spin-off continuation of Tsukihime, so I don't think she'll be in the game considering Sion won't be in it for the same reason (at least in the base roster anyways). Though Len was present in the original game before Kagetsu Tohya albeit indirectly as the one who gave Shiki his lewd dreams after beating Nrvqsr.

Without going into the rabbit hole that is the Nasuverse, all you need to know is that the original Melty Blood took place after Tsukihime and Kagetsu Tohya while Type Lumina takes place before Remake.

Okay, another question, technically two: which new characters can we expect and are characters like Len and Sion out or can they just find an excuse to put them in?

I was wondering about that. before Remake as in a story with the characters before the events of the Remake ? But we'll still get Tohno Shiki and presumably Nanaya Shiki and Satsuki and so on and they'll just not be in the story ? Are we going to see if Nero gets replaced and who takes his role, the new sword guy, before the remake comes out ?
(I'm assuming Remake still gets released after it)
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

It's hard to tell at this point if the majority of the original Melty Blood roster will even come back in Lumina. Nasu has the habit of disconfirming characters if it doesn't fit the narrative (like how he ruled out Akiha and Shiki from being possible Servants in FGO since the Shiki and Akiha of the FGO timeline wouldn't be the same characters from the Tsukihime one). I mean for starters, the only reason a bunch of characters in the original Melty could even fight (Hisui, Kohaku, Miyako, etc.) was because of Wallachia's influence.

The only "new" character I see them adding to the game is that grey haired guy vampire guy with the sword you see in the opening of Remake, but even then I wouldn't be surprised if that's just Roa's new redesign. So unless they plan on making new OCs for Type Lumina, it's hard to gauge at this point like I said though they did say they were going to update and expand the current list of the 27 Dead Apostle Ancestors to make them more threatening considering enemies in other Type-Moon IPs like FGO make them look like shit.

Huh. I never knew about the dis-confirming narrative thing.
Although i've got a feeling that when/if this game gets an update/sequel or DLC,
they'll probably throw the narrative thing out the window
& have it be the post Tsukihime characters from previous MB games,
such as Sion, Riesbyfe, Ryougi, etc.

They did that with Dragon Ball FighterZ with the movie & GT characters,
& i think Fate Unlimited Codes did that too with some servants from Fate/Zero(?).

Got to have something to convince people to buy the DLC/update & keep the cash flowing, after all.

But ether way, it's great that Melty Blood is back for modern consoles.

The only time I remember off the top of my head where Nasu threw the whole narrative thing out the window was when they added Ryougi in Actress Again through some time traveling/dimension hopping shenanigans. I think it was to promote the Garden of Sinners movie.

The Nasu of today would have never did such a thing considering how big of a discrepancy that is to his whole world building since he stated that only one person in the world can have the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception at any given time hence another reason why FGO's Shiki wouldn't be the same as Tsukihime's Shiki, as the Ryougi in FGO is of the FGO timeline (she has the Mystic Eyes) as she was caught up in Goetia's incineration of humanity.

I never thought to see the day where Melty Blood will be on the Xbox platform! It's sad to see Sion deconfirmed but I'm guessing she's still kicking it with the UNIEL crew.

But I'm still really hype for this! I also hope this opens the door for the other Melty Blood games to be released on modern consoles too.

Curious why, when they have an ongoing remake of the original title that Melty Blood is based off of being done for console, they wouldn't also bring that to Xbox but would so with the sequel series?  Surely the market to be had with Tsikihime would be in the range of whatever they intend to get out of Melty Blood with western audiences anyways?  Just one of those cases where I wonder why bother to make a foothold in the market if you're not going to establish as strong a first impression as possible.  It would be one thing asking for them to just port over the originals of everything prior and tell people to catch up, that's a bit to extreme, but they have the remake coming up soon ANYWAYS and for similar consoles.

Eh.  Whatever.  My Type-Moon history is short.  I played Melty Blood on the PS2 on a Blockbuster rental during my Toonami phase and enjoyed it, good fighting game, likable cast, looking forward to how this one turns out, but I personally never could wrap my head how this whole extended universe was birthed from a porn game.  That's evidently not even scrubbed out of its history like Nintendo does with for the most part ignoring their old comics, it's just oddly there in the background that if you want the full context you need to start at square one with an eroge visual novel.  It's just....acutely weird and so Japan.

Since Tsukihime takes place after Mahoyo, she'll likely have something more towards her Tsukihime design.
But yeah, i hope they bring her back, too.
