BlazBlue in Europa nei primi mesi del 2010


Il picchiaduro 2D sviluppato da Arc System, giunto in Giappone lo scorsco 30 Giugno, arriverà in Europa nei primi mesi del 2010. 

L'annuncio arriva direttamente da PQube, che si occuperà del lancio per i mercati PAL. Da segnalare la presenza nella versione europea di nuovi personaggi e mosse e di una inedita soundtrack, nonchè la completa localizzazione del prodotto nel nostro linguaggio.

BlazBlue è atteso per le piattaforme PlayStation 3 ed Xbox 360.

London: 14th August 2009. PQube is pleased to announce that they will be releasing BlazBlue across Europe on PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system.

BlazBlue is a new experience in 2D weapons based fighting games making exceptional use of the power behind the Next Gen consoles and online gameplay networks. The game is created by Arc Works Systems, the Japanese developers behind the critically acclaimed long running Guilty Gears fighting franchise which began in 1998.

BlazBlue has been hailed as the “game that every self-respecting console fighting fan should play”. It has already enjoyed huge success in Japan and critical acclaim in North America scoring above 90% in several specialist gamer Reviews. And a special Limited Edition has immediately sold through in USA, where it has recently been released.

This launch represents the first in the new partnership between Zen United and PQube. Dave Pain, from PQube, said “The long running 2D fighting genre has seen a welcome boost in 2009 with updated versions of several franchises brought to Next Gen PS3 and 360 consoles” and Tomo Ohno, Head of Zen United, reported “BlazBlue reached number 1 in the Japanese arcades and already sales of the Japanese and US console versions have beaten forecasts”.

The European version of the title will be fully localised into English, German, French, Italian and Spanish. It will include additional content – e.g. character strategy guide, music soundtrack from sold-out US Limited Edition. Plus new gameplay content not available anywhere, like new characters and moves.


  • For those new to fighting action the game has been specifically designed so it’s easy to pick up at the beginning, and an ever increasing depth introduces new and more demanding skills.
