Nitroplus Blasterz coming to North America this winter

XSEED localizing Nitroplus' Examu-developed fighter.

Nitroplus Blasterz

XSEED Games is bringing Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in North America this winter, the publisher anounced.

The fighting game, developed by Examu, features numerous playable heroines from Nitroplus’ collection of IP, as well as some still unannounced guest fighters “whom Western audiences are sure to find especially enticing” (the press release doesn’t mention Homura from Senran Kagura, so we take it she’s one of them).

Super Sonico will be playable for the first time in the console release. The game sees players select a main character along with two partner characters before heading into battle. It offers “fast and flashy combat,” as well as “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 game will also feature an online mode, with full cross-play between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 players.
