While it’s been some time since we heard anything about their upcoming Shining fighter, Sega recently announced four more characters that will be part of the BLADE ARCUS from Shining cast.

Shining Blade’s Roselinde and Fenrir as well as Shining Heart’s Melty and Isaac are set to join previously revealed characters Rage, Sakuya, Altina, and Xiao Mei, as well as original characters Ryuga and Pairon.

Roselinde is described as a “power” character who uses a lance and shield. Fenrir, on the other hand, is a “rush and attack” type who uses claws. Meanwhile, Melty utilizes a combination of “magic and throw” while using her staff and familiar Sorbet, and Issac is said to have a style that centers around ancient weapons, though the actual weapon that he wields is unknown.

All of the characters that have been revealed so far will be playable at an upcoming location test this Thursday, August 22, at Club Sega in Akihabara.

In the meantime, check out screenshots of the new characters below and let us know what you think.
