Shipping today: Melty Blood Act Cadenza Ver.B (regular edition), Subarashiki Kono Sekai: It's a Wonderful World, Blue Dragon Mascot Candy Toy & more


Melty Blood Act Cadenza Ver.B is a Windows PC port of the Arcade ver.B2 with new features such as a tag-team mode. Melty Blood makes use of widely used concepts in fighting games such as cancels (cancelling an attack before its animation ends, then beginning another, allowing for more complex and damaging combos) chain combos (normal moves that can be link without the use of cancels) and the use of power bars (called Magic circuits in-game).

Magic circuits serve more purposes than just allowing the execution of special moves. Chain combos are much easier to perform in comparison to other games, and it also brings other interesting features like simultaneous impacts and dash shielding among others. In addition, it brings the original concept of Shielding into gameplay.


The Japanese doujin fighting game Melty Blood Act Cadenza Ver.B is shipping today as Windows™ PC port at US$ 59.90 only. The Limited Edition release of the game is expected to be in stock this Friday. Also still available is the PlayStation2™ version.



Neku Sakuraba, a normal 15 year-old boy with a hobby for music and graffiti, suddenly had woken up in middle of Shibuya one day, a famous shopping district in Tokyo, Japan. Why he's there remains a mystery to him. All of a sudden, the thoughts of the people surrounding him began to enter his head at once. It must had been happening because of the mysterious badge he held in his hand. Suddenly, Neku's cellphone rings with a text message on it. It says that if he wants to live, he'll have to fulfill a set of orders entitled "Death's Game" which must be completed under a 7 days limit.

Most of the gameplay focuses on finding clues and battling Noise. Players can use Neku's empathetic abilities to hear people's thoughts by using the touch screen of the Nintendo DS whenever they wish. The game's combat system, titled Stride Cross Battle System, uses both screens of the Nintendo DS; where one of four protagonists is displayed on the top screen and Neku is displayed on the bottom, with battle actions taking place simultaneously between both characters. Players use the touch screen to move and attack with Neku, whose revealed abilities include lightning, fire, telekinesis (moving objects), and healing magic.
