I'd say it's not worth it. you can spend to $40 on something much better, like Guilty Gear X... don't take me wrong, it's a fabulous fighting game when you take into consideration that it's a fan-made game. However that's just what it is, a truly great fan-made game, but nowhere near the quality of some good commercial game. $40 is too much IMO, it's definitely worth playing for some time, mainly for the single player part, however the lack of character balance means that it's not that good if you want to play against some friends, so it doesn't last as long as other good fighting games.

Also it's very text-heavy despite the fact that it's a fighting game, expect a lot of reading through the single player mode.

IMO, if you are a hardcore Tsukihime fan, buy it for sure, in that case you'd have already bought it by now... if you are only somewhat interested in the Tsukihime universe, it may not worth the $40... if you are a fan of fighting games, there are definitely better games to spend the $40 on.

Search around in the "Shingetsutan Tsukihime," previous "MELTY BLOOD," and to a certain extent "Queen of Hearts 98/99" and you will find numerous that I wrote regarding this collaborated doujin game. If the info inspires your interest, then I recommend it - if it doesn't then I won't. The main reason here is that the whole TYPE-MOON world is "love-it-or-hate-it" kind of story. Granted TYPE-MOON went pro and released one of the best selling ero-games out there this year, it's doujin game "Tsukihime" was a very polar game in a sense where some people love the in-depth story and amateurish art while others hate it for the long text and amateurish art.

My deepest apologies for bumping this up again.

I just have a burning question.

Where the [insert any obscenity or combination of obscenities here] do I get this Melty Blood game? I'm pretty sure it isn't freely downloadable freeware. How do I get this without needing to navigate through Japanese websites (I have no knowledge of their language) or giving my credit card number to questionable websites?

Are there any reputable vendors who carry this? Any suggestions?

Oh come on. No one knows where to get this?

And I mean in the honest, money-paying way, as long as TYPE MOON gets some of the profits. I don't plan on bootlegging stuff from TYPE MOON

Well, atleast Himeya would be happy to make you part with your hard-earned cash. Quite a lot of your hard-earned cash actually, because Himeya isn't exactly a cheap store. Amazon.co.jp's listed price for Melty Blood is less than half the price Himeya lists (42$ at Himeya compared to 19$ in Amazon). Too bad Amazon Japan doesn't ship games to locations outside Japan.

EDIT: In case you haven't heard, Melty Blood ReACT should come out soon enough. It might be easier to get outside Japan than the original (probably not, but one can always hope )

Since MELTY BLOOD is a doujin game, it is not sold in Amazon. The link refer you to in Amazon is the "MELTY BLOOD Gaming Guide" which lists all the moves and the story walkthrough. Hence, since it is published book, you can probably get Amazon to ship it to your country.

I should inform you that MELTY BLOOD ReACT has been delayed by another month. If you go to the-now-defunct-Watanabe-Seisakujo-website's online diary (http://www2s.biglobe.ne.jp/~k_wata/zaki.htm), Narita-san apologized that MELTY BLOOD ReACT will not be done for release at C-Revo (which is on April 29th). Excuse: "I didn't plan ahead well that it was going to be this hard..." "This will be our first two-disc game" etc etc. Conclusion: it has been delayed for at least a month, and hope to see it on a May release (hopefully).

Heh, I guess I really should pay closer attention to things. Oh well, it's not like it would've been the most horrid mistake ever

Do you think that ReAct will make the May 30 release date it has now? (apparently there's also some kind of Type Moon event on that day)

It's based on the game Shingetsutan Tsukihime and it's actually quite popular unless you're not a fan of the game and/or series.

I prefer Eternal Fighter Zero games, I'm not the biggest Shingetsutan Tsukihime fan out there, but it's still a good game.

A full FAQ and movelist can be found at GameFAQs. The "fire-girl" is Akiha, and her 300% EX attack is Sekishu Origami. You do it the same way you do almost every 300% EX attack--roll the controller 180 from back to down to forwards, and hit strong attack. Only while your magic circuit is at 300%, of course.

Self-published works created by amateur fans.

Haha I finally got to test play the Melty Blood fighting game at a kon this past Sat. I played as my favorite character in the anime series (Ciel). Anyways's I almost bought the game, it plays similar to Gulity Gear X. You could button mash one command and bust out 20+ combo's lol. ^_^
