BlazBlue Central Fiction's console version has now been confirmed for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Joining the playable cast from the XBlaze games comes Es. XBlaze Code:Embryo and XBlaze Lost:Memories are visual novels set in the same multiverse as BlazBlue. While largely unconnected, they share a lot of the same lore terminology and the main character from Lost:Memories resembles BlazBlue's Nine to such an extent that many believe they are the same person.

More details on new character Es, game modes and an interview with series creator and producer Toshimichi Mori to come in a 10-page feature in this week's Famitsu.

This weekend Mikado is having it's usual Xrd tournament filled with high level players. However, In an effort to to make content catered towards the Western audience, they've decided to host 2 Jack-O exhibitions as well since she is a new character that the West can now access via the demo on PS4. 

Hase (Slayer) vs Mike (Jack-O) will take place sometime before or after the usual 3on3 April 9, 2016 Saturday night JST at the usual place: twitch.tv/joniosan (follow him!). Unlike most events at Mikado however, this will feature English commentary by Jazz aka Majinobama.

HM.jpg

FG (Jack-O) vs Samitto (Chipp) will take place on Sunday, April 10, at 12:30 PM JST. (Thus, it will air live Saturday night in the Americas!) This will be broadcast on Majinobama's personal channel, twitch.tv/Majinobama.

GGXrd-R_Logo.png.14b00d1b38c308a2f5a8404In case you missed the announcement at Anime Ascension, Aksys announced that if you pre order the game for PS4 on PSN, you'll get access to a demo of the game, but they didn't mention a date... until now! Mark your calendars for April 4th!

But the demo is not just your ordinary demo - it comes with arcade mode, local versus mode, and training mode! It will have all arcade characters (sorry, no Raven, Kum Haehyun, Dizzy).

 

Do note that this offer is only for PS4 download version of the game on PSN, not disc!
Be sure to thank Aksys for giving everyone a chance to start training ahead of the game's full release on June 7th.

Today Arc System Works confirmed that BlazBlue Central Fiction's third act is releasing on the 31st of March. The Act 3 update includes the Act 3 arcade mode stories and a new single player mode in the form of "Alliance Mode". In Alliance Mode, players control a 4-character team in fights against other teams of 4.

We've been blessed with a double feature: a demonstration of Raven and Kum Haehyun featuring Ogawa, FAB, Machaboo, Mocchi, Nage, and LOX!

And if that weren't enough, they also do a regular 3v3 using their mains to boot!

As aways with pre-release events, do note the new characters are not finalized and may be different upon final release.

Dizzy is also teased with a silhouette.

Raven has been revealed to be a playable character in the console version Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator. Originally appearing as a story NPC, Raven made his debut as a playable character in Guilty Gear 2: Overture but Revelator marks the first time that he's playable in a fighting game. One of the servants of That Man, Raven is a masochist who gets stronger the more damage he takes.

Japan's famous Takadanobaba Mikado Arcade, commonly referred to as simply "Mikado," has begun a Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- league competition called Mikado Tenkaichi Budokai. The event features eight world-class Guilty Gear players who regularly play at Mikado separated into two leagues. In A League, the players are Karinchu, who has been extraordinarily dominant since Xrd's release, first with his Millia and Ramlethal, and now with Johnny; Koichi, who is known for his I-No, but has played many characters and games over the years; Nage, the best Faust in the world, famous for his trademark pink color; and mike, a former Jam player who is now considered to be the strongest Jack-O. B League features Mocchi, a former Bridget player who went by the name Mugen, now playing Sol in Xrd; Fino, who is generally considered to be the strongest Venom player; Ogawa, the famous Zato-1 main who won EVO 2015 and is argued to be the strongest Guilty Gear player in the world; and FAB, who is known for his terrifying instant blocks and for making Potemkin look like a strong character. Koichi and Fino qualified through a fan vote. mike had to win a Last Chance Qualifier to take the final spot.
Details for how and when Mikado Tenkaichi Budokai will be run can be found in this Evernote, translated by @greatfernman https://www.evernote.com/shard/s296/sh/58a711bd-c8fe-4640-a3b5-769c3bebb9e0/63ddb3aeaed72f515b57e711bc008fe6
All of Mikado Tenkaichi Budokai will be streamed over on Jonio's twitch channel. http://twitch.tv/joniosan The first match, Mocchi vs FAB FT10, has already concluded, and can be found below, and the rest of the matches will presumably be uploaded to the same channel.

    • It actually looks like some of the Contra: Hard Corps team plus Pachi and Endo. Cygames and CyDesignation staff are handling top level design (director, producer, character designer, composer etc.) while a team of mostly less prominent staff members seems to be doing the technial development on the ASW side. Hideyuki Anbe (Hard Corps director) and Hideaki Sawada (Hard Corps character designer) are working as Development Manager and Art Director, Kazuto Sekine (Pachi) is Battle Planner, and Ryohei Endo (Chronophantasma director, FighterZ planner) is Development Director. Obviously they've all had pretty long involvement with ASW and Pachi and Endo were pro players, but I think as ASW continues to grow as a mercenary developer for other publishers, you're going to be seeing guys like Motomura and Anbe branch out and head up their own teams within the company.
