    Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is just the kind of well-crafted 2D fighter that the PS4 needs more of.

    I went into Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel Review quite skeptical at first, but what met me was a solid fighting game. The story is a big naff, but it looks great and plays well. That's all you need from a fighting game right?

    It doesn't provide anything new for fighting veterans, and it doesn't have characters that will immediately draw in players. It does provide a good fighting experience with an assortment of modes that provide familiarity - but nothing new.
  5. Feb 9, 2016
    In the end, those who are more familiar with works of Nitroplus will get the most out of Nitroplus Blasterz (shockingly enough), but even those with no prior knowledge of the included franchises should easily be able to enjoy it.
  6. Feb 9, 2016
    While sparse on content, the actual fighting of Nitroplus Blasterz is surprisingly deep and enjoyable.
  7. Feb 8, 2016
    Aside from being a fighter with a cast of anime and manga characters from Nitroplus, this game is quite a solid fighter overall.

    Nitro+ Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is a fun fighting game that will get your inner waifu going. Without doubt a fan service game, its gameplay mechanics are refreshing enough to provide a great party game experience for you and your friends.

    Nitroplus Blasterz is a fast, smooth, strategic, and generally enjoyable fighting game that has found a happy medium between accessibility and depth. Provided a decent-sized community builds around the game, this is a fighter I could see myself enjoying for a long time to come.

    With strong gameplay and a healthy amount of unique characters, it’s a game that lives up to the pedigree of its developer.

    If you already have the latest BlazBlue and need another 1-v-1 2D fighting game, Nitroplus Blasterz is a very good one in terms of accessibility and complexity. Its beautiful to look at, and it feels good in terms of control and combat system. Go for it.
  12. Feb 5, 2016
    An interesting fighting game that has a few flaws, but otherwise held my attention enough to keep going back to it for random matches online, or trying out the varied cast of fighters.
  13. Feb 2, 2016
    Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroine's Infinite Duel is definitely an above average title. It's a shame that cutting corners in a few key places (like the online play menus, and the lack of a good combo training mode) really cheapens the experience.

    This booby fighter's got a great personality. [June 2016, p.87]

    Nitroplus Balsterz is a good fighting game, with nice 2D sprites and animations, an accessible (but so deep) gameplay who offers spectacular fights.
  16. Apr 10, 2016
    There's fun to be had with Nitroplus, it just requires that you play with other people, as the single player is far too limited for its own good.
  17. Apr 8, 2016
    This title is way more enjoyable if you know the anime the characters are based on, but even if you don't, you'll find a solid and interesting fighting game.

    I really enjoyed this game. It’s not quite on the level of the fighters I really love (that being Dead or Alive and BlazBlue), but I can see myself coming back to this one fairly often.

    Controlling your fighter can be awkward, but get next to the opponent and release feel good, glorious beat downs, and a button mashing war. An interesting roster, dual storylines, and great visuals prove this to be worthy of a newcomers time, and a real treat for established fans.
  20. Feb 12, 2016
    Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is a solid effort, bringing together such a great cast of characters from a number of different visual novels and gaming franchises; pitting them up against each other in an enjoyable arcade fighting style game.
  21. Feb 10, 2016
    The stripped-down mechanics lead to more pick-up-and-play sessions without feeling overwhelmed by too many rules to follow, and the cast of characters are entertaining enough just to witness in action even if you have no idea about their respective origins.

    Even if you don't know the cast of Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel, there's still plenty of fun to be had in this simple fighting game. Fans of the characters will be in for a treat, though.
  23. Feb 2, 2016
    I had a lot of fun playing the game, but there was always a dark cloud looming over my experience.
  24. Apr 8, 2016
    The fighting mechanics are easy to pick up and the all-female cast is varied. Nonetheless almost any fighter from ArcSystem gives you more in every aspect.
  25. Feb 11, 2016
    Despite its crazy name, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is actually a solid little brawler, though it definitely lacks the depth, fine tuning and good looks that would give it a shot at being competitive with more established series in the genre.
  26. Feb 2, 2016
    Fast, intuitive and addictive, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel does not innovate in the genre. However, it delivers a solid and classic experience based in the history of the 2D fighting games.
  27. Apr 28, 2016
    Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is a surprisingly deep fighting game but the obscure cast and the limited individual moveset makes really hard to feel really invested with it.
  28. Apr 7, 2016
    Not content with just the one story mode, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel has two, but unfortunately both are pretty unremarkable.
  29. Feb 11, 2016
    Like Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, Nitroplus Blasterz brings together various characters from Nitroplus properties. Unfortunately, fans may not know these characters, many of whom have never been published in the West. That leaves a solid, but rather basic fighting game to draw players in.
  30. Feb 9, 2016
    Overall, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel doesn’t do anything wrong; it just meets the bare minimum.
  31. 60
    An admirable effort, bringing together characters from a number of visual novels and gaming franchises and pitting them against each other in a solid, energetic brawler. It’s a shame that there aren’t more interesting modes in which to test your fighting mettle, particularly when the two story modes offered are so dull and impenetrable, but at least there’s some good multiplayer fun to be had — just don’t get too interested in completely even-handed competition, as I highly suspect there are serious balancing issues at play here.
  32. Feb 2, 2016
    It's messy, it can look bad, and it feels incomplete, but beneath all of this is core gameplay that isn't without merit – if only for the most hardcore of Nitroplus' fighting game fans.
  33. Feb 2, 2016
    Nitroplus Blasterz – Heroines Infinite Duel plays it too safe, to the point of taking the game’s potential and squandering it.

It's very easy for me to just pick a random character that I've never even tried before and still do decently against online opponents. You can pick 2 characters to assist you in combat so it adds more possibilities to plan out attacks. The most powerful moves include cut scenes with pretty sweet graphics, Full Review »
