posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Marvelous and Examu announced on Wednesday that it is adding Yuki Takeya from the School-Live! television anime series as a partner character in the Nitroplus Blasters Heroines Infinite Duel fighting game for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Inori Minase will reprise the role from the television anime series.
The console version of the game will ship in Japan for PS3 and PS4 on December 10. North American publisher XSEED Games announced in June that it will release the game in the West in PS3 and PS4 this winter.
First-print copies of the game in Japan will include a free download code for two new playable characters: Homura from the Senran Kagura Estival Versus -Shōjo-tachi no Sentaku- game, and Aino Heart from Examu's Arcana Heart fighting game series. Marvelous also previously announced that the game's console version will promote Super Sonico from partner character to playable character.
Those who pre-order the game will also receive a free download code for an orange character palette for the game's characters, based on Marvelous' logo.
The limited-edition package includes 3D crystal box art drawn by Nitroplus artist Santa Tsuji, the game's soundtrack, an art book, and a download code for the swimsuit versions of Super Sonico, Aino Heart, and Homura, featuring completely redrawn sprites for the characters. The limited edition is retailing for 12,160 yen (about US$98), and the standard edition is retailing for 6,990 yen (US$56).
Examu debuted the game in Japanese arcades on April 30. Initially, only eight of the 11 playable characters and 13 of the 18 partner characters were made available for play. The arcade game has since added Saber (Fate/stay night) as a playable character.
