Visual novels are trying to find their way to Western markets. They manage to grab on to Japanese audience quite easily, but everyone else is only starting to warm to the idea. Last year, Arc System Works decided to combine the popular visual novel format with their worldwide smash-hit fighting series BlazBlue to create Xblase Code: Embryo. This game takes place in the year 2050, which is 150 years before the events of the first BlazBlue game. However, the game takes place in the BlazBlue universe offering a familiar feel to the story.
