Hatsune Miku here, while my master, Fariz Asuka is on a short leave to study for his exam this week, he pre-made some entries for me to post on the blog for him.. There are about 2-3 entries that he pre-made for the short leave..
This is the 1st of the 2-3 entries that I am going to show to you; Magical Battle Arena.. This is a game which my master recently started to play (Unfortunately its one week before the exam)..
Well, this is one game my master is willing to wait for the release.. It is so fun that he is sure most will like to play it.. Anyway, back to the topic at hand, Magical Battle Arena (MBA) is a game released by Fly System..
But before you can begin playing the game, you need to set the Option settings for the game because it might be graphic intensive to some people..

After you set everything in place, you can playing battle mode.. In this version, there are only 2 characters for you to play, Lina Inverse and Nanoha Takamachi.. More on them later on..
So in this screen, you can select what character you want, which group do you want them to be in and the level select of each character..
You can also make one of the characters for a 2nd Player to have more fun in the game, though your keyboard must be wide enough to fit all the keys..
After you've selected your character, you will be brought to the VS Option menu..

After this, you are ready for some fun.. For a start I would like to show you Lina Inverse..
How do you control your character? Well, don't fret.. Here are the control list for Player 1:
Button 1: Melee Attack ( Default Key: A )
Button 2: Ranged Attack/OK ( Default Key: Z )
Button 3: Guard/Cancel ( Default Key: X )
Button 4: Dash ( Default Key: C )
Button 5: Powerup ( Default Key: S )
Button 6: Switch Targets (for 3P/4P mode) ( Default Key: D )
Button 7: Fly Up ( Default Key: W )
Button 8: Fly Down ( Default Key: Q )
Button 9: Pause Menu ( Default Key: Enter )
As you play Lina Inverse, you get to use it the same as what you see in the anime Slayers..
Here are her Standard Techniques:
Melee Attack: Short Sword
Ranged Attack: Flare Arrow
Guard: Windy Shield
Powerup + Melee: Fireball
Powerup + Ranged: Gaav Flare
Powerup + Guard: Van Rail
Powerup + Dash: Boost [Works when Magic Burst Gauge is flashing] - ( Increase Movement & Attack speed )
Ultimate Techniques ( Can be done when in Boost mode ):
Powerup + Dash + Melee: Dragu Slave
Powerup + Dash + Ranged: Laguna Blade [Can only be used when your life bar is red ]
Looks fun right?? Well, you have not seen Nanoha yet.. Lets switch to her now..
Straight to the point, here are her techniques...
Melee Attack: Staff Strike
Ranged Attack: Divine Shooter
Guard Round: Shield
Powerup + Melee: Accel Shooter
Powerup + Ranged: Divine Buster
Powerup + Guard: Protection Powered/Relective Shield ( Not useful against any Special attacks )
Powerup + Dash: Excelion Mode, Activate!
Ultimate Techniques ( Can be done when in Excelion Mode ):
Powerup + Dash + Ranged: Excelion Buster A.C.S. [Can only be used when your life bar is red ]
This skill is for desperate need because this attack can even hurt Nanoha unlike Laguna Blade which doesn't affect Lina Inverse..
If you played the game right, you will bound to win the game with ease.. ^^
If you are having trouble playing the character, you can test them out in Practice Mode ( 2nd Option in Main Menu )..
Even though this is a trial version, my master find this game very interesting.. Lina and Nanoha seems very "Broke" to him.. But surely in the real version there will be more elite characters to play..
So if you want to, you can get this trial version before the full version is out during the Summer Comiket 2008.. Will gladly wait for it.. ^^
The website finally released a video with all the characters in it.. Here you go:

Thank you for reading today's entry.. My master wish to apologise if it is a tl;dr entry to some.. Have fun playing the game.. ^^
Edit: Updated the 4th untranslated option menu.. Thanks to Meronpan for the info.. ^^
