There are plenty of fighters to choose from these days and one fighter that has been turning heads all year long is BlazBlue. Released to arcades last year, the game soon saw a console port which expanded the number of people who became interested in the game. Now Aksys has released a follow-up to the game for arcades only (I haven’t heard if this update will stay exclusive to arcades or if it’s a timed exclusive) called BlazBlue: Continuum Shift and I have already found a couple of arcades in the US who have the game, Arcade UFO and Arcade Infinity. Arcade Infinity has been posting a bunch of BB:CS videos to their youtube account and suffice it to say, this still looks simply awesome. How many other US facilities will be importing the game remains to be seen – I would love to get one but there is always that problem of money. Still, I am trying to find a way as this looks too good to pass up and fighters do fairly well in my venue even though what I have is 10+ years old for that genre.
Here is a video of the new BlazBlue taken by Arcade Infinity.
