    Looks like we have a new 2D fighter on our hands. Alongside The King of Fighters XII (yes War, I said XII), you can try out BlazBlue! Well, Japanese owners can.

    I heard rumors before that there was going a PS3 version, but the 360 makes it even accessible.
    There's actually an error in that article. It WAS made available for American arcades. It says so on ASW's english site for the game.

    Awesome, i love Arc System Works' games.

    But what about a really new Guilty Gear and not the same game with just 2 or 3 tweaks? [​IMG]
    I'd have preferred to see that announced :/

    There's something about 2-d fighting games that's so interesting to me. Up until this day, I have no clue what it is.

    Probably has something to do with Super Smash Bros., not quite sure.

    BlazBlue itself isn't new, but the console releases are. Who says 2D is dead?

    I've known about Blazblue for quite a damn long time. Hell, I even have the Original OST, and been waiting forever for that official release announcement...

    And now that it's also coming to the 360, SCREW THE PS3, I'M GETTING A 360.

    Ya, the game has been out for awhile now. I've played it myself a couple of times in my local arcade. Though glad to hear it's finally coming on consoles.

    G4's X-play had an interview with one of the producers of the game, and he says that it'll be coming to North America in the summer as well, with online play. Looks like I'll be getting a 360 sooner than I thought.....
