Daemon Bride Summary

 

 

Daemon Bride is a 2D fighting game developed by Examu and released in June 16 2009. The plot  is a school named “Kyoritsu Stella” where students received Contracts from the higher beings to reshape the torn world after a certain incident. Those receiving the Contract of Angel want to use the power to protect the world. Those who receive the Contract of Demon want to use the power for their personal gain, though most of the time they’re not necessarily evil. This obviously led to a clash between both sides. Daemon Bride plays similar to Arcana Heart with Angels and Demon not spiritual being like Arcanas. There is very little information about Daemon Bride other gameplay and characters. We know two main protagonists named Kuon Sumeragi and Reizei Abrane are your typical anime rivals. The main antagonist is Dies Irae of the series.

There are other character such as Licht Schwarz, Nina Sumeragi, Dusk, Pekomaru and Yui Emelia. Each character have unique abilities and playstyles. Gameplay wise, it’s very similar to Arcana Heart mix with Guilty Gear-ish. Again, I know very little about this game but I think it should be available for consoles. I think there is a reason that it didn’t have a port version. In the past, Examu was struggling to port Arcana Heart 2 on PlayStation 2. Fans of Arcana Hearts series was not happy about PS2. Examu was falling on hard times financially and had to shut down during development of Arcana Heart 3. Now, Examu is rebranding intro Team Arcana because of financial reasons or who knows.   During Arcana Hearts 3 Love Star Max Six Stars Xtend, there was suppose to be a new character called “Omega” but never got released.

 

 

Continuing 

But other two character Dark Heart and Pistrix were released as DLC characters in Arcana Heart 3 along with new character Minori Amanohara. Well I am not heard to talk about Arcana Heart but it’s one of my top all  female fighting games. Check out the blogpost, if you get a chance too. Back to Demon Bride, there is a story/arcade mode like Arcana Heart. You fight your way through final boss and get a character ending then game over. The soundtrack is average but I like Nina Sumeragi theme because it’s so graceful and cheerful. I haven’t listen to the other ones yet but there probably good. I forgot to mention about weapons in the game. Some characters don’t have them but can hold their own in a fight. Designs of the characters range from creepy to typical anime troupes.

Well you have a fairy that rides a clown, rockstar abusing her spirit. A dog that turns into a monster and a church believers. I wouldn’t say that this game has a religious theme to it. It does talk about angels and demons in a nutshell. Just like Guilty Gear’s heaven or hell, but I don’t think it’s a big deal. Examu created other fighting games like Nitroplus Blasterz Heroine Infinite Duel, Million Arthur Arcana Blood and Aquapazza Aquaplus Dream Match. These three game came to console and were successful. I am surprise that Daemon Bride didn’t get the same treatment. There are other games that should have gone to console like Fighting Layer and Akatsuki Blitzkampf. Akatsuki did come to PC but not Fighting Layer.

 

 

Closing

Hopefully Daemon Bride makes it way to PC or other new gen consoles one day. If there is enough demand for it and some company pick it up. I would live stream this on Twitch and have rollback netcode online like Blazblue series. During college days, I heard of this series after playing Arcana Heart on PS2. My curiously was sharp because I love anime fighting game back mid 2000s. If you want to get your hands on it. The game is very rare to find on the internet but might be a YouTube video or somewhere on Google. Daemon Bride look like a great potential fighting game that might catch fighting game community’s eyes. This game might be on small local esports tournament.
