Development[edit | edit source]
Type Lumina initially started development in early 2010 as an untitled Melty Blood HD Remake, prior to French Bread shifting development to their original game, Under Night In-Birth, however development was halted due to TYPE-MOON being busy with developing Mahoutsukai no Yoru. A decade later, French Bread and TYPE-MOON returned to collaborate again with Melty Blood: Type Lumina, a successor to the Melty Blood Act sub-series games, and taking place ten days before the Tsukihime remake as a "what-if scenario", with Delightworks assisting in production and sales. Type Lumina appears to run on the same engine and uses a similar sprite style as Under Night In-Birth and Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, both developed by French Bread. It planned for a worldwide release on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One in 2021.
Apart from the upgraded graphics and much different gameplay, the teaser shows animated cinematic cut-in screens for super moves, even faster gameplay than previous versions and HD graphics. Character naming conventions have been reverted to English styles even for organic Japanese names and like French Bread's and Type-Moon's recent releases, now comes with English language out of the box. Previous Melty Blood, the Act sub-series (safe for Current Code) releases were exclusively in Japanese.
