MELTY BLOOD: TYPE LUMINA Previews Bajiquan Fighter Miyako Arima

A new gameplay preview for MELTY BLOOD: TYPE LUMINA has been released, featuring the character Miyako Arima.

Miyako is a bajiquan martial arts learner who is described as a “strong and speedy close-range fighter with explosive power.”

Meanwhile, her character profile says:

The eldest daughter of the Arima branch family, which took Shiki in as a child. Currently in the fifth grade, she sees herself as Shiki’s other sister.

The eldest daughter of the Arima branch family, which took Shiki in as a child. Currently in the fifth grade, she sees herself as Shiki’s other sister.

Her feelings are easy to see as she always wears her heart on her sleeve. She unabashedly adores her kind, quiet older “brother”, but whenever he is near, she becomes so nervous she can abrely speak. This continued for many years until Shiki was suddenly called back to the Tohno family, and Miyako did not take the news well.

She learned bajiquan by observing others in her family dojo,  though it now sits unused. Although she was nowhere near the skill of a true martial artist, her abilities quickly flourish in the ensuing battles. Her destructive powers make it hard to believe she is only 11 years old.

The TYPE-MOON GAMES channel has previously previewed Kohaku, Kohaku’s twin sister Hisui, the Hisui and Kohaku tag teamAkiha TohnoCielArcuiedKouma Kishima, and Shiki Tohno.

Developed by French Bread, MELTY BLOOD: TYPE LUMINA is set to release on September 2021 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam. It is the latest entry in the Melty Blood fighting game series, which is based on TYPE-MOON’s Tsukihime visual novel. The new title is described as being based on the upcoming Tsukihime remake, Tsukihime -A piece of blue glass moon-.

MELTY BLOOD: TYPE LUMINA‘s website says that the game will have over 10 characters, upgraded visuals and HD environments, and a completely rebuilt and more modern-feeling battle system.
