Those familiar with anime like Psycho-Pass and Fate/stay night likely know the name of Gen Urobochi and the Nitroplus studio. Similar to how popular manga and light novel publications in Japan occasionally throw their characters against each other in Super Smash Bros style crossover brawlers, Nitroplus are looking to bring their attempt to the PC toward the end of the year.
In a sudden announcement close to the turn of the year already, Nitroplus will soon unleash their gruesome IPs to Western audiences in a title only previously seen on the varied PlayStation platforms. Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroine's Infinite will take the form of a 2D fighter similar to older Street Fighter titles while featuring a support character system like those seen in popular light novel publisher Dengeki Bunko's familiar take on the genre.
With the lead of violent visual novel Song of Saya coming in as a playable fighter, the title will see 14 of Nitroplus' characters fight against each other in some of their first forayes in a fully animated form. 19 support characters - like Akane Tsunumori of Psycho-Pass fame - will be available as temporary 'tag in' aids.
Coming from the studio behind Arcana Heart and published by XSEEDgames, Nitroplus Blaster: Heroine's Infinite will land on Steam sometime before the end of the year.
