With the announcement of Jubei, BlazBlue is also officially getting a new patch, which is dubbed Central Fiction 2.0. Much like with Guilty Gear Rev 2, Arc System Works has compiled all of the major changes with every character into a .pdf file located in this link. You might already be aware that this file is entirely in Japanese, so members of the BlazBlue community have banded together to translate these changes all throughout Twitter. The changes have been compiled into a single Google document, which can be accessed here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sQpDd_HQRLYoVE5pLHDhvKcUzMjdbJtKajc-mV8J_1U/edit

chrome_2017-07-17_19-43-37.pngArcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX SIX STARS!!!!! is halfway through its Kickstarter campaign, and thanks to its passionate fans they've already reached their initial goal of $100,000, and will be porting the game to PC via Steam!

Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX SIX STARS!!!!! is halfway through its Kickstarter campaign, and thanks to its passionate fans they've already reached their initial goal of $100,000, and will be porting the game to PC via Steam!

But, like any good Kickstarter, EXAMU has added some exciting stretch goals in hopes of bringing in more funding, and we need your help to reach them!
When the Kickstarter first launched, EXAMU worried that they wouldn't even be able to fund the game itself. But thanks to the outpouring of support in Japan and from around the world, and so they've announced these stretch goals with the intent of releasing the final, definitive Arcana Heart 3 revision.
The first stretch goal - Paracelsia (the game's boss character) as an Arcana, and updated balancing - has already been reached, and as of writing we need another $85,000 to reach the next: a new playable character, currently nicknamed Shark Girl!
Next, at $400,000, is the mysterious, dual-wielding Dark Heart, and her Arcana: Love Prison Geist! Little is known about her, but I must admit her design has me very interested.

At the $500,000 mark we see the introduction of a new boss character, Omega! Additionally, a new storyline will be added that also brings together the stories from earlier titles. At $570,000, Omega will also be added as a playable character!
We've still got a way to go before these new characters are funded, so please consider chipping in if you can! Just $25 gets you the port on Steam, in English, as well as a key for all the DLC funded by the stretch goals (not to mention a love letter from the producers), which is an incredible deal on its own. There are only 15 days left, so get it while you can!

Following the conclusion of EVO 2017's BBCF Grand Finals, Mori took to the main stage to make some announcements. What came next, not many people could have foreseen. Jubei is set to release sometime during the Summer, but that wasn't the only announcement Mori had in store for fans...

 

More information is soon to come, so stay tuned!

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 12.21.33 PM.pngHi everyone, I know I've been pretty quiet for the past few months... but for a good cause! I've been using Dantarion's hitbox viewer  to figure out frame data for BBCF! I wasn't able to figure out all values, but the majority of them are all on the frame data pages on the wiki!

http://www.dustloop.com/wiki/index.php/BBCF/Frame_Data

They're also on GunFrame (iOS/Android app).

Unfortunately, I'm going to be very busy for the next few months with personal issues, so I need help getting the frame data onto the character pages (the ones with the images), as they still have data from the old games. If you'd like to help, feel free to start updating the pages; you don't need an account to make edits on he wiki!
If you have questions on how to edit the wiki or notice wrong values in the frame data, feel free to message me.

CDqhcf9.pngDantarion (of SFV hitbox, Kenbot and more) has released a tool that takes all the scripts that makes up character data and converts it into hitboxes. Keep in mind that this is directly from the character scripts themselves, so some data may be hard to read, but the data is all there. He also promises similar data for Xrd-R and P4AU in the future!

Be sure to thank Dantarion if you see him!

Dengeki had an event over the weekend where they showed off the console exclusive character Es! From a quick viewing of the video, some of her attacks leave a trail in the air that become attacks after a delay. She also has a way to stock a charge that powers up her specials!

Jourdal was kind enough to record the stream and put it on youtube, so those of us without Nico Premium can see it.

Heading to Evo this year? Aksys is sponsoring 2 players to go to the Toushinasai 2016 in October in Japan. Toushinasai is a spritual successor the SBO arcade tournaments of old and will be run entirely on arcade hardware (sorry pad players). You can find the rules here, but there's two ways to earn a spot:

  1. Be the highest qualifying player in the Evo Main tournament for XRD-R
  2. Win the qualifying tournament Aksys is hosting at Evo. Rules are on Aksys' website here

http://www.aksysgames.com/2016/06/21/toushinsai-qualifier-at-evo-updates/

In addition to that, people (including yours truly) will be hosting side tournaments for BB, +R, UNIEL, VS, Melty Blood, DFCI, and more! You can find more information here:

Hop to it! Some of these games don't have on site registration (BB and P4)

    • well someone awesome scanned the whole central fiction material collection (画集・設定資料集)_BLAZBLUE_CENTRALFICTION_公式設定資料集.zip
    • So I’ve gone through a few threads and I’ve seen a lot of people saying just block until your opponents pressure is over, but it seems like a good player’s pressure is never over in this game. I don’t know if I just need practice, but it seems like reversal DPs don’t work. I find myself getting put in blockstun and then blocking for 20 seconds and eventually get opened up and it’s over. Am I missing something or do I really just need to block all day?

    • Seeing as there still isn't any character forums for BBTAG and that this the most relevant thread for this info, I'll post this right here (though mods are free to delete this if game play analysis doesn't belong in a news thread). Just some stuff I found about the P4 cast while playing the beta. Yu Narukami's revolver action (or P combo as they called it in P4A) is surprisingly similar to what he had in P4AU. He can cancel 4A (old 5A) to 2A and back (or vice versa) and still continue on. EX: 4A > 2A > 4AAA > Light Zio. He can then move on to his old heavy chain of 2B to 5A (old 5B) to 5AA (old 5C). The difference now is that the heavy loop is like his light loop so 5A can go to 2B and back (or vice versa) but now if you try 5AA to 2B to 5AA again, only the 5A will come out. It appears Narukami is restricted to one 5AA per string like his 5AAA (old 2C). EX: 5A > 2B > 5AAA > Heavy Swift Strike.                        EX: IAD j.5AA > 4A > 2A > 4AA > 5A > 2B > 5AAA > Heavy Swift Strike. (Assists can extend this, Resonance Blaze allows for Super ender) As far as I can tell, the only changes to his revolver action is that 4AAA (his old last auto combo normal P4A or his Shadow's last auto combo normal in P4AU) is now placed within the same chamber as his 5BB (old 5DD) (old 2D was also in the same chamber but is no longer usable as a normal, only as an assist, which is his back assist, or 4P), his 5AA is now in the same chamber as his 5AAA, and that 2C (his old 2AB) is now the last normal in his string (couldn't be used once he began using persona normals and could only cancel into 2D). TL;DR: The revolver actions of Persona characters is largely the same as it was in P4AU, only now they can still do sweep after doing their last auto combo normal and sweep is the very last normal you can cancel into in a single string. Minor changes exist between characters but this holds true for the most part.
