After a small tease on social media last night, XSEED has announced today they will be bringing the console version of EXAMU’s Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel to North America this year. The game was announced to have a Japanese release a short time ago that was also slated for winter, so XSEED picking this up for such a close North American release comes as a pretty pleasant surprise.
The console version is said to have new and exciting guest characters; we assume this is in reference to Senran Kagura’s Homura, who was just recently announced, and popular Nitroplus mascot Super Sonico in her debut as a playable character, though there may be more unannounced.
Nitroplus Blasterz has been out in Japanese arcades for a brief amount of time, which means the better players have gotten a grip on the game and footage of higher-level play is floating around online. It features a good amount of call backs and fanservice for players that are familiar with the branded characters, then attempts to layer on a multitude of popular mechanics from the current generation of fighting games.
The spectacle aspect is certainly on full display in this one, so anybody interested by that should check out Nitroplus Blasterz as we near its winter release.
