    jp's Nitro+ Blasterz: Heroines of Infinite Duel (PS4)

    [March 6, 2023 07:26:21 PM]
    I rarely play fighting games for fun, but I've always been curious to see what's going on in the genre. And, I think I hit "gold" with this game - bought completely blind.

    It's a fighting game featuring only female-presenting characters. A bunch of them, I didn't count nor did I bother to unlock a bunch of ones presumably also available for play. As far as I can tell, and I did play around with a four or five of them, they're all strange/weird in what seem to me unconventional ways. For example, one of the characters is a "cat lady" - by this I mean that the character has lots of cats as pets and that the attacks are mostly done vie the cats rather than the character herself. All of the buttons work just as they do for other characters - it's the animations that are different (as far as I can tell), and funny.

    I played a few campaign runs with the characters- just to see what was going on and how the game worked. As expected the difficulty ramps up but I was able to make progress despite my meagre skills. I then realized that there's an option to alter the difficulty (10 different options if I recall) so I played on the easiest just to see how the campaigns ended and what happened.

    Also, perhaps more importantly for me - the game has a crazy story that I was not able to make any sense of other than it being heavily HP Lovecraft inspired, but modern sci-fi with magic and...well, lots of nonsense to be honest. I was surprised by how much story there is - visual novel style presentation, lots of screens and so on. Like, LOTS of reading.

    Once you finish the campaign, you unlock a NEW campaign - and this is where the reading/visual novel stuff goes all-in! Like I said, it really made very little sense to me - there's the necronomicon, there's demons, and so on. But all in the context of cute sexy female characters. But, the game's rated T (teen), so it's not really creepy in that sense.But still, I keep going back to the fighting game thing and here's an example with all female characters. But, who are they for? (I'm thinking representation - is this a game for boys/men as the intended audience?) I don't really know - but the game's lore heavily suggests that the characters are all from different places (other games I presume) and that they've sort of come together here in a special game - with the story even playing with the cross-over idea (and how they're all trapped in the game just for you to play/mess around).

    Anyways, I don't have much to say about the gameplay because - well, I didn't explore it all that deeply - there's counters and stuff. Super bars AND two teammates that can tag in for an attack. The games tutorial features are good enough for me - but, like I said, I don't play fighting games for fun personally, so I wasn't particularly interested or motivated in learning all the characters (though I did try to do some cool stuff with one at least).
