BlazBlue: Central Fiction is a fast paced 2D fighter which continues one of the most confusing stories in video game history, but who cares — it’s BlazBlue. The game has been featured in many fighting events around the world, including popular western tournament EVO.
Recently, a new title in the BlazBlue series has been teased titled BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War from Arc System Works. However, the game will release on iOS and Android, which begs the question if this will be a fighting game or visual novel.
