NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» The coin-op version of Melty Blood Actress Again originally shipped in September 2008 and it was one of NCS' better selling coin-op kits for last year. In late December 2008, Ecole shipped an MBAA Rom A-Version eprom kit to operators which upgraded and rebalanced the game. The money has been pretty much made on coin-op MBAA for the manufacturer and operators alike so it's time for Ecole to give the greenlight for a Playstation 2 home conversion of the game which ships this week in Japan.
Melty Blood is a popular 2D fighting game in Japan with fast action and fluid gameplay. It's the kind of fighter that draws in hardcore players who hone their technique and sharpen their skills by practicing hours upon hours against other hardcore players. Actress Again features three groove variations - Full Moon, Half Moon, and Crescent Moon - which govern the moves and combination attacks that a particular character can utilize. The PS2 conversion features new game elements and a brand new fighter. The character selection screen contains a total of 25 fighters including Akiha Vermilion, Ryougi Shiki, and Yumiduka Satsuki. The limited edition of MeltyBlood includes a 2-disc MBAA Soundtrack and a slipcase. The LE version is priced at JPY7800 or US$80.90 from NCS. «NCS Game Notes»
