Hinokakera Chaotic Eclipse
In its current iteration Hinokakera features an unorthodox mix of both 2D and 3D traditions. While the combat system itself is rooted in 2D, all battles take place in endless 3D stages with no boundaries or objects, similar to Tekken series of fighting games. Characters also have the ability to sidestep.
At the same time, 2D part also presents a combination of both old and new elements - system of links and combos is similar to that of Melty Blood and Guilty Gear games, whereas movement resembles King of Fighters and Street Fighter for the most part, with airdashes and double jumps, common in modern fighting games, being a special ability of some characters or having additional requirements to perform.
As of fragment:Eclipse the game has 13 characters to choose from. The game started with 7 of them forming the original cast:
Kasumi Seiga Freslight
Additional three were unlockable characters, that were added to the default roster from v2 onwards.
Clestis Farrell (boss for most of the cast)
Fragment:Eclipse introduced three more playable characters:
Malakh (originally appeared in v2 as an unplayable hidden boss, though one could select it using hacks)
Ashley (unlockable in v3, regular character in Chaotic Eclipse)
Aya/immortal (unlockable in v3 and Chaotic Eclipse)
