Blazblue Deciphered: Characters' Histories

GameXplain Says: "To those who have only glanced at the Blazblue series, it may look like any other fighting game. It has a diverse cast of characters, tons of crazy moves, and a deep fighting system that allows both veteran and casual fighters to enjoy it in their own way. But Blazblue has one significant difference from other fighters and that's its story. Rather than a simple tournament that rounds up a crazy stable of fighters, Blazblue tells a complex tale filled with many foreign terms and a web of interpersonal relationships between the characters.

With the imminent release of Continuum Shift II, I thought it would be appropriate to catch new players up to speed and refresh fans of just what happened. In my previous article, I detailed the history and world of Blazblue leading up to the events of Calamity Trigger. Before explaining the events themselves, it is necessary to know all of the characters and learn just what their motivations are. No two fighters are the same in Blazblue and their stories reflect that."

My favorite franchise this generation, and my favorite fighting game of all time. It has successful sales, but IMO it definitely needs more recognition.

Well I just saw Arc System Works bought back the rights to Guilty Gear...that has some recognition.

Unfortunately I never got into Guilty Gear when Arc System Works had the rights, but I definitely wanna try it out

It was a great game. Blazblue has many characters that play similar to the ones in Guilty Gear, but personally I liked the world of Guilty Gear more. Just need an HD version now.
