XSEED Games has released a new trailer showcasing gameplay mechanics from its upcoming 2D crossover fighter, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel, which will release in North America on February 2, 2016, for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
After selecting a main character, players will duke it out while charging up the abilities of their two chosen Partners, who once called into the fight will contribute with battle damage and various other effects. As the combatants exchange blows, their Power Gauge builds at the bottom of the screen. Filling this gauge meter by meter, up to a maximum of three, the players will then gain access to devastating abilities, including character-specific super moves and a massively powerful “Lethal Blaze” attack that deals incredible damage but costs all three meters.
The trailer also details the game’s innovative “Blast” system, which provides players with the option to use one of three special tide-turning maneuvers once per round, such as creating distance between the player character and her opponent, breaking an opponent’s combo, and extending a player’s combo beyond normal limits. Additionally, a player’s health and meters both begin regenerating once the Blast state has been activated.
