Melty Blood: Type Lumina sales have surpassed 270,000 units worldwide as of March 2022. Project Lumina will reveal more new information about the fighting game at an official tournament stream on April 10, 2022. [Thanks, Gamer!]
Project Lumina will hold its first official tournament and stream it live on the Type-Moon Games YouTube channel. The group has opened free registrations for the tournament, which will remain open until March 28, 2022. However, it limits the entries to residents of Japan with a good understanding of the Japanese language.
The tournament will have a total of 128 participants put into four preliminary groups with a single-elimination bracket. The top two players in each group will advance to the finals, which will have a double-elimination format.
Melty Blood: Type Lumina was released simultaneously worldwide on September 30, 2021. DelightWorks originally published the fighting game. However, following a company split and its eventual transfer to Aniplex, the official site now lists Lasengle as the new publisher. The game’s promotion team has been using Project Lumina as its entity name in Japanese press releases since its first reveal. In January 2022, the group added Aoko Aozaki and Dead Apostle Noel as free DLC characters.
Melty Blood: Type Lumina is available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC. It is one of the nine fighting games that will appear at Evo 2022.
