Arc System Works’ BlazBlue: Central Fiction has officially launched in normal and limited collector’s editions for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. The press release doesn’t mention the availability of a PC version, but apparently it may be in the works given the support for the Fighting Commander stick for the game being made available for PC via Xinput.
In case you missed it earlier in the week, the game launched for home consoles in North America, giving gamers some HD, hand-animated fighting action featuring the eccentric 2D fighters from Aksys Games and Arc System Works’ beloved niche anime-inspired fighter.
The game sports an all new story mode, up to 33 different fighters to bring into battle, as well as support for the new six-button Fighting Commander arcade stick. It features a D-pad for directional input, large buttons and both a left analog and right analog stick. It comes with a 10-foot long cable for easy plug-and-play action and works with the PS4, PS4 and PC.
If you need to cheat a bit, there’s also the inclusion of left and right turbo toggles.
BlazBlue: Central Fiction‘s limited edition is also currently available from the Aksys Store, featuring a physical copy of the game, a collector’s box and slip case, a deluxe 100 page art book, a Noel Vermillion Nendorid mini figure, and the original soundtrack featuring 10 songs.
If you need a little refresher course on what the game looks and plays like, there’s a video trailer below.
Blazblue was never really one of my favorites, even though the character designs, music and background art were always top notch in my opinion. The fighting was okay and the story was fairly tough to get into. I think I’m just more of a fan of traditional martial arts, which is why the King of Fighters has always been my go-to franchise and my absolute favorite.
Anyway, if you want to get your hands on Blazblue: Central Fiction you can do so right now from local retailers or digital e-tailers for $59.99.
