Combining 2D fighting game and visual novel, the BlazBlue series has been supported by many fighting game fans. The latest installation, 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 「Susano'o」, the true form of 「Yuki Terumi」-- newly join to bring to a total of 35 playable characters!
Introduction of New Systems
[Overdrive]
Each character can strengthen his/her unique ability for a specific period of time.
When [Overdrive] is triggered, the Overdrive icon changes into a purple gauge.
This gauge will decrease over time, and [Overdrive] will end when the gauge depletes.
[Overdrive] lasts longer if your character’s health is low. During activation, the round timer also stops.
After [Overdrive] has ended, the Overdrive icon will show a number counter. Overdrive can be used again when the number reaches 10.
The number increases over time or damage taken, but during [Active Flow], it charges much faster.

[Exceed Accel]
A powerful attack that can be used during [Overdrive] state.
[Overdrive] state immediately ends upon usage.
When activated during [Active Flow], the damage and effects are significantly boosted.

[Active Flow]
Fighting aggressively and landing attacks, or using heat gauge etc. will trigger the [Active Flow] state.
Enhances the attack power and shortens the [Overdrive] cool time etc. to make fighting conditions more favorable.

"BlazBlue goes out in a blaze of glory, and although it lacks new ideas it certainly isn’t short of characters, game modes, or thrilling action."

"I couldn’t think of a better game to end a long running franchise than BlazBlue: Central Fiction. Just as it’s starting to show its grays, the game warps up most of the story...

This game is a mix between visual novel and a fighting game. Might sound weird to hear but this game has a lot of story and I mean like a crap ton. The amount of lore for each character and the overarching story is great if you are into story and world building. It can be complicated at times to a fault but still interesting. And as far as the fighting game side of it goes it is probably one of the best fighting games of our time. Or at least the best within it's own sub genre of "anime fighters". It isn't for everyone but still can be a ton of fun. The amount of freedom of movement and variety in play-styles. Not one character feels the same from their toolkit. Even every character has their own stage and unique music, some characters even have special battle themes when facing each other. It all feeds into an amazing game.

Incredible fighting game with a large and diverse roster! Lobbies are little jank but it's manageable.

#bbrollback is real and the game finally has rollback netcode implementation, if you ever wanted to jump into BlazBlue now is the time. It's a very small tightknit community compared to more recently released games, but is gratifying to learn if you're willing to put in some work. Like with most ArcSys games it has specific gimmicks and mechanics that only exist in the BB franchise which can be fun for 2D fighting players who want something different to sink their teeth into.
