Type-Moon revealed the first DLC character for Melty Blood Type Lumina will be Dead Apostle Noel. The character will release alongside a new “Crimson Chapel” stage and character story. Voice actor Ai Kayano will reprise her role of Noel. There is no confirmed release date or price yet. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
Similar to other playable characters, Noel is a character that appeared in the recent Tsukihime remake. In fact, another version of the character is already available in the main roster. The DLC version of the character appears during the Ciel route of the game. As such, Dead Apostle Noel will have special dialogue when battling against Ciel.
In addition, Type-Moon released a trailer for Dead Apostle Noel. She wields a spear and features mid to long-ranged attacks. She can also call down spears from above, which the player can later trigger to damage to a nearby opponent. Though not shown in the trailer, her Last Arc ability puts the opponent into a large present-shaped box, which she then stabs with her spear. Furthermore, the trailer shows off the new “Crimson Chapel” battle stage. The stage will also come with its own unique music.
