99w ago - Today Arc System Works Director Geraint Evans has shared a video detailing everything fans would want to know about BlazBlue for PlayStation Vita!
To quote: With the PS Vita launch just around the corner - we thought we'd take a look at a series that's built a reputation for itself among fighting aficionados over the last couple of years.
Currently readying itself for a spot on the 22 February launch line up, BlazBlue is a fighter that's proven something of a cult hit - a series that's earned high praise from critics for its left-field approach to fighting but is still perceived in some fighting circles as 'the weird other one'.
Getting stuck into a little Street Fighter or a bit of Tekken from time to time is comforting, familiar - you know your way around the character roster, their moves and abilities. You know where you stand - and we understand that.
BlazBlue, seems scary in comparison. For the uninitiated, gameplay footage looks full-on, intense - like the circus has arrived for a gunfight at a firework factory. It's hard to look beyond the relentless visual assault and understand the fighting game that lies beneath.
207w ago - Japanese developer Arc System Works has confirmed to NowGamer (linked above) that producer Daisuke Ishiwatari intends to develop a new next-gen Guilty Gear game for both the PS3 entertainment system and the Xbox 360 console.
To quote: Arc System Works' Business Development Director Tomo Ohno fielded a question on the possiblity of a Capcom-style crossover for the company's 2D fighters BlazBlue and Guilty Gear.
"Personally I don't like that idea," Ohno replied. "What we can say about Guilty Gear is that it is not dead yet. It has not ended. The producer/creator of Guilty Gear, Daisuke Ishiwatari, his comment for this meeting [was] I have the full intention to create Guilty Gear for PS3 and 360."
Ohno didn't totally dismiss the chances of a crossover between the rock-music themed fighter and the soon-to-be released fantasy fighter BlazBlue in the future.
"It's a different world - it's not BlazBlue taking over Guilty Gear, but Guilty Gear is an important thing for us and we want to make sure fans of Guilty Gear continue to have fun in that world."
