Melty Blood Type Lumina has announced the release date next two free DLC characters for the game, with Mario and Powered Ciel joining the roster next week.
To access the characters, you’ll probably need to go to the individual DLC page for them and redeem them for free, just as was the case with Aoko and Apostle Noel.
Powered Ciel is a variant of the character Ciel, who trades her rushdown mobility for bigger-range attacks, including an armored charge for getting in to her opponents.
Meanwhile, Mario fulfils the puppet archetype, being able to control nun puppets to allow him to attack from multiple sides and mount a staggering offense.
Unlike typical puppet characters like Relius Clover or Zato-1 though, Mario seems to have different puppets that he can swap between- a sword type nun who fights like Ciel and a spear-type who fights like Noel.
These are the third and fourth free DLC characters for Melty Blood Type Lumina respectively, and mark the end of the game’s first season of announced DLC.
There’s been no news on a second season of DLC, or even if they would continue to support the game with free characters, or if the game’s second season would introduce paid characters.
It’s been a relatively good season for Melty Blood- the game has enjoyed critical praise, even earning a spot in this year’s EVO Main Stage line-up.
The DLC announcements were announced at the end of a tournament for the game which was livestreamed on the Type Moon YouTube channel.
