Arc System Works began streaming a trailer on Wednesday for the Steam release of game developer French-Bread's Melty Blood: Actress Again - Current Code fighting game. The trailer previews the game's characters, and also shows the game's new multiplayer lobby mode.
Melty Blood: Actress Again - Current Code will be available on Steam on April 19.
The game's official website also shows screenshots of the game's translated arcade mode story.
The game is the final installment in French-Bread's Melty Blood series of fighting games, which features characters from Type-Moon's Tsukihime visual novel, as well as original characters. The game also features the character Ryougi Shiki from Type-Moon's The Garden of Sinners novel and anime film series. The series began as a dōjin (fan) game by French Bread on the PC in 2002, with a story mode serving as a sequel to Tsukihime. The franchise has since had multiple releases in arcades, on the PlayStation 2, and on the PC.
Melty Blood: Actress Again - Current Code originally received a PC release in 2011, but only when bundled with the limited-edition Blu-ray Disc volume of the Carnival Phantasm 3rd Season anime. The game takes place one year after the "Tatari" incident that "left Misaki Town scarred."
The game will retail for US$24.99 on Steam, and will be available for one week with a 20% launch discount.
