The anime-inspired 2D fighting game franchise BlazBlue is slowly, but surely making its mark on the PC platform via Steam, and the latest iteration of the franchise, BlazBlue: Central Fiction, is getting ready for its launch on Steam this coming April 26. The store page has already gone live (http://store.steampowered.com/app/586140/) and one of the important information that can be gleaned from its store page is the bonuses: people who buy a copy will get the original soundtrack and a nifty digital memorial book delivered straight to their Steam folder.
If you have no idea what BlazBlue: Central Fiction is all about, there’s a handy synopsis over at the steam page:
Combined with 2D fighting game and visual novel, the BlazBlue series has been supported by many fighting game fans. The latest installent, BlazBlue: Centralfiction, serves as the ending to the Azure Saga and reveals the truth that has ever been in mystery.
First time in this series, 「Naoto = Kurogane」 「Hibiki = Kohaku」 「Nine = the = Phantom」 and 「Izanami」 appear as playable characters and three DLC characters from the console version –「Es」 from XBlaze series that shares the same worldview as Blazblue, 「Mai Natsume」 from the BlazeBlue spinoff manga, Remix Heart, and 「Yuki Terumi」, the true form of 「Susano’o」– newly join to bring total 35 playable characters.
