New Characters Unveiled!

by LoliSauce

Finally, some brand new footage has surfaced showing off a sneak peak of Ryougi Shiki and Schoolgirl Akiha!  6 videos are now up for download on the MBAA ps2 official site.  If you’d rather not download them (they are rather large), they’ve also been uploaded to this Youtube playlist for your viewing pleasure.

Here’s a quick look at one of the videos.  It shows off Ryougi and S.Akiha in their Full Moon forms.  It also features Ryougi’s stage, based on the forest ouside of the Ryougi mansion (and also featuring the hype music from the movies as its BGM!).

Seifuku Akiha managed to catch everyone here by surprise.  At Type-Moon’s original announcement of her, I thought it was just going to be an extra outfit.  Turns out we have yet another addition to the already sizable cast!  She plays quite differently from the other two Akihas in the cast, fighting primarily with a slew of kicks and new origami attacks.  Those air origami rings look pretty scary, from the two videos that show them off.

Ryougi Shiki, from Tsukihime’s sister series – Kara no Kyoukai, is a character with many similarities to Shiki Tohno.  She comes from a demon hunting clan and possesses the highest level of Mystic Eyes of Death Perception.  Thankfully though, she appears to be far from just a Shiki or Nanaya clone in her MBAA incarnation.  She already is displaying some sizable ranged normals and some specials that seem pressure focused.  I can’t wait to see more!

I’d like close with a quick reminder that the discount coupons are still good as new, so don’t miss out on preordering MBAA ps2!
