Type-Moon revealed a brand new character that will be added via DLC to its 2D fighting game Melty Blood: Type Lumina.
The new character is Aoko Aozaki and she will be released on January 13.
In the meanwhile, you can enjoy a trailer, a few screenshots, and an official description from Type-Moon.
“One of only five magicians who exist in the world.
Successor to the Fifth Magician. Overall, she is not considered a skilled magician.
However, when it comes to “destructive” power, she is unrivaled in her talents.
The sight of her raining down bullets like hot geysers has also given her the direct, yet rather tasteless nickname, “Magic Gunner”.
Who she learned it from is unknown, but she is also familiar with martial arts, and has a battle style that could be considered a hybrid of those martial arts and magic.
She encountered Shiki on her travels. She gives him his glasses that suppress his Mystic Eyes, and teaches him the value of living things and how to handle things.
For that reason, Shiki respects her and calls her his teacher.
She’s a difficult person to pin down. She believes in justice, is unreliable, and a vagabond.”
