BlazBlue Spinoff XBlaze: Code Embryo Gets A New Trailer

Arc System Works knows what you’ve been missing for all of your life. That bit of shining gaming gold to fill that hollow hole in your gamer’s heart of hearts- a BlazBlue-inspired visual novel. No? Well, that’s what we’ve got as the new spinoff of Arc’s over-the-top fighting game just got new trailer along with a demo on PSN. (PS Vita, PS3, Xblaze Code: Embryo)

Nice trailer but gameplay would suffice.

Its a VN

I don't know what's a VN. What is it?

It's like Blazblue's story but without the fighting gameplay. I played a bit of it yesterday and liked it more than I thought I would. It has lots of subtle references to Blazblue and gives you insight on some of the events leading up to the games. Imo a must-have for any Blazblue fan, but I wouldn't know about it really catching on with others. Great story so far.

VN = Visual Novel

Aww. I've lost interest. It came across as a fighter.

@akissfromdaddy

There's a demo on PSN for PS3 & vita, you should check it first. And no, this is a prequel for BlazBlue that explained everything. So it's a right decision to made it as visual novel rather than a fighting game. Even ArcSys made story mode in BlazBlue: CS Extend more like a visual novel.

It's a visual novel. I wouldn't expect too much out of it.
chaosdemon09  +   445d ago
Ugh why didn't they make this a fighting game..the characters look awesome..I guess there testing waters
AKissFromDaddy  +   445d ago
Agreed. It looks like a fighter,...coming from Arc Systems Works...

I hope that story is really good and enveloping.

Is that title the result of a dumb translator or weird dev team?

Crazy to think we're getting a console Visual Novel physical release in the US. So happy VN's are starting to get released over here finally.
Inception  +   445d ago
Yeah i'm happy too. VN got more spotlight in the US since Prof Layton, 9 door 9 person 9 hours (Zero Escape prequel), Ace Attorney, and Corpse Party got localized. Since than, more and more VN got localized like Hakuoki, Zero Escape, DanganRonpa 1 & 2, Steins;Gate, and now this Xblaze.

VN popularity in the US even gave some effect to point and click genre to popular again. I never hope that games like Broken Sword will be released for Vita, but lo and behold it did.

I expect more VN got localize like Fate/Stay Night (the new remake anime will be airing soon), Robotic;Notes, etc.

OT. I already tried Xblaze demo on vita and it's very good. Can't wait to get my hands on the full version.

That's great. I like Visual Novels. Should help to understand the story.
Spotie  +   445d ago
Will there be Noel???
Inception  +   445d ago
I don't think so. It's a prequel that takes 100-150 years before the event for the 1st BlazBlue. But maybe there will be a cameo for Noel or other BlazBlue characters.
Spotie  +   445d ago
Still want it.
