Some gameplay observations

 

-Overdrive is back, while active it counts down how much time you have left in numbers

-With OD active the burst counter has a number in the middle of it, for some purpose

-Various new moves across the board INCLUDING AN OVERHEAD FOR TERUMI!!! :O

Based on the trailer, Hakumen either has a new D counter, or his counters now close in. He did a counter on Koko, dashed in and then grabbed her. You can see his location at the start of his mini segment and he gains a magatama after the slam, so it's not a command grab.

Some old stages have been redone, too by the looks of it. Monorail has a sunset colour scheme and the Hanging Gardens has been redone on the left side of the stage.

The new HUD and character illustrations are neat. Nine being playable is pretty hype I suppose. Hibiki looks fine, but Naoto seems less interesting. Here's to hoping the game will turn out good.

Also, the meaning of Central Fiction looks to be "The Dream that the God Observes".

Nine also seems to call it "the Truth that cannot be changed"

A quick translation of the trailer or something.

 

Rachel: I'm not here to get the Azure nor to achieve my ambition. I came to confirm... who you are. Now, let us go. There isn't time to waste. We need to solve this situation before "she" can wish for the destruction of this world.
Ragna: It doesn't matter who I am... I'm myself. Now, come on! I'll "save" you.
Hibiki: I don't have a wish of my own... I've always been empty.
Naoto: I'm sorry, but if that's a Murakumo Unit... I'm going to have to destroy it.
Jin: Hero created by others serves no purpose.
Noel: A rebellion?  I'm just chasing after the Grim Reaper.
Rachel: Ragna still has a role he needs to fulfill.
Hazama: You'll tell me... Just how much do you know about the Azure?
Azrael: This is interesting. You've lost your memories, but still intend to repeat everything...
Hibiki: I exist only for a certain person's sake.
Noel: I know you. Who... are you?
Tsubaki: I'll handle this. You go on ahead!
Makoto: I should be only one who has to fighting in a dirty way... I'm used to that kind of thing.
Hazama: The world you wish for... What kind of cruel reality will it force on to you? I'm looking forward to it...
Kokonoe: To seal off the world... So, you're the cause of this strange phenomena.
Amane: "Search for me", huh? Just where should I look from...
Noel: This is weird feeling... Like, we're watching an eternal dream...
Nine: What kind of world do you wish for? What kind of history? What kind of war? What kind of destruction would you like? Eventually someone defeats the Izanami and learns the truth of this world... An unchangeable truth.... The Central Fiction... What will the humanity choose at that time? What do you wish from this worthless world, Ragna the Bloodedge? That's your wish? Seriously... What a worthless thing to wish for.

Wonder what changes they made to Haz's chain again. The trailer shows the old snake logo but without any counter on it.

This supposed to be Naoto. It's a reference to the end of Bloodedge Experience.

Naoto's design is so... different? He's got that same mark that Ragna has on his sternum, and has red crosses across his clothing similar to Rachel and Raquel.

hakumen does not gain a magatama after his new move! It appears to be a special cancelable command grab

So, Nobunaga Shimazaki really voices Naoto. It pretty much sounded like him, but wanted to be sure...

He's also one of those voice actors who love and talk about BlazBlue, and somehow end up getting into the game.

 

(Now, who's going to voice George the XIII when he gets a voice...?)

Sorry for expressing my personal preferences.

Don't sweat it, I like them too.

 

 

It has to be a placeholder, looks to plain.

Might just be intentionally minimalist.  I hope it sticks TBH.

I quite like it except for the health gauge which doesn't have any fancy patterns on it for each character.

Don't worry, the patterns are now behind the character portraits.

I know but the health gauge still feels so plain.

I like it, kinda, but it really does feel incomplete.

 

Shoutout to Homura's fancy new crown. I'll miss the hat and the perfect hitbox that could've been.

All of the new moves and effects shown in the trailer look sick as hell.

 

Definitely looking forward to seeing Hibiki and Naoto in action.

 

And Nine, of course.
