BlazBlue Spinoff XBlaze: Code Embryo Gets A New Trailer

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.

Nice trailer but gameplay would suffice.

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.

AKissFromDaddy1590d ago

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

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.

Beautiful trailer, can't wait for gameplay.

It's a visual novel. I wouldn't expect too much out of it.

chaosdemon091590d ago

Ugh why didn't they make this a fighting game..the characters look awesome..I guess there testing waters

AKissFromDaddy1590d ago (Edited 1590d 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?

Snookies121590d ago

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.

Inception1590d ago (Edited 1590d 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.
