Hello… again… and again… Aksys Games, purveyors of quality digital entertainment, is pleased to announce that we will be releasing Arc System Works’ latest tour de force, XBlaze Code: Embryo!
Taking place almost two centuries before the events of BlazBlue, XBlaze tells the story of Touya Kagari, a mostly unremarkable high school sophomore with a remarkable past, and his transformation from a typical teenager into the target of secret organizations, renegade mages, homicidal maniacs, and curry-obsessed co-workers. And though XBlaze touches on the origins of some of the more important elements of the BlazBlue mythos (The Azure, Black Beast, and Takamagahara spring immediately to mind), its story stands on its own as an epic tale of disparate groups all fighting for control of the power responsible for the creation of the universe.
The game is releasing physically and digitally on both the Vita and PS3. Only the Japanese dub is included.
I'm all for more visual novels getting released in the west, so this localization is a very pleasant surprise. As far as I can tell, this is a traditional visual novel which means you shouldn't expect the puzzles and investigations of Zero Escape/Danganronpa/Ace Attorney.
Are you interested in the game, System Wars?
