Renowned Japanese fighting games developer Arc System Works recently revealed that its new mobile game will be launching domestically this February. Titled BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War, it is based on the popular fighting game series BlazBlue and developed by studio Linked Brain. You might not heard of them, but they made other mobile games such as Symphogear XD UNLIMITED and took part in developing Fate/Grand Order (event planning and server development).
The producer behind the mobile game’s “Dark War” storyline is Toshimichi Mori, the creator of BlazBlue himself. As seen in the trailer, BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War is expected to “reboot” the RPG side of the BlazBlue franchise, with some shots of in-game gameplay teased as well. BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War is now in pre-registration in Japan, so stay tuned for more updates!
