Next BlazBlue Releasing “Sometime in 2016”, Tag Battles Possible?
That Guilty Gear and BlazBlue crossover could still take a while though.
BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend was the last major title from Arc System Works and arguably represents the height of the series. However, creator Toshimichi Mori is already planning the next title. Speaking to Siliconera, Mori said that, “I am planning to have the next story sometime next year and the next game will have the last 25% of the story.” It also seems that it will more than 30 playable characters by the time it comes out.
Mori brought up a rather interesting point of discussion though. “What do the fans think about tag team battles?
“There are two possible options. One is you would pick two or three characters like the Capcom vs. SNK 2 or simply choosing characters and tagging out like Tekken Tag Tournament. In Capcom vs. SNK 2 players choose characters and they come out in a certain order compared to Tekken Tag Tournament which has characters switching in real time. If you consider the PlayStation 4 system, both of these are possible. Those are the two directions I’m considering, what do you think of this? The flashiness might need to be cutdown if we implement this though.”
Finally, if you’re curious about that BlazBlue and Guilty Gear crossover, then you’ll need to keep waiting. “I know the fans want to see a crossover with Guilty Gear but I don’t know how long that will take. If we are going to do it, we want to do it right. Ask Ishiwatari about this later.”
