BlazBlue Discs Burnt With Two Languages?

By Spencer . June 2, 2009 . 3:36pm

BlazBlue, the latest fighting game from Guilty Gear creator Arc System Works, isn’t at E3, but we haven’t forgotten about it. A new trailer showing with brief glimpses at the online mode and story mode went out in Japan.


Wait a second… this trailer is for Japan, but Ragna the Bloodedge (aka the God of Death) spoke English. And there’s English text?!

  • Alright, KOTOKO on siliconera! That’s one of her best songs in a while, too.

      KOTOKO does the theme for BlazBlue? What’s the title of this one anyway (can’t listen to it at work)?

  • Justin Bailey

    Love BlazBlue! <3
    Even though I'm bad at it ^.^;

  • Rorg

    Wow, good find! I assumed it was not going to be the case, but that’s going to be a nice change from the Guilty Gear XX story mode.

  • The game is dual language (English and Japanese), and from what I heard from them, the text will be in several languages.
    At least, that’s confirmed for the N.A. release.
    They mentioned this a couple months ago in their podcasts. I would have told ya if I didn’t think you already knew!

    • I thought it was just Japanese and English voice acting, not text which is quite unusual for a US and Japanese release.

      • Aoshi00

        I think the Jpn version has english audio and text too. But it’s not that unusual for a non-RPG right? So it would mean the US & Jpn version are identical this time.

        Kotoko’s song rocks!

        Has anyone played this w/ the arcade stick, think it’s worth getting the Hori PS3 fighting stick for this game (I alrdy have SF IV & Soul calibur 4)

      • You think so, my man? They mentioned that they were working side-by-side with ASW, so Aksys was very close to them while they were developing the game. Even the original official site had English, Chinese and France subcategories, too.
        Also, I know games like Silent Hill 2 and Cold Fear (Ace Attorney, too?) even had multiple text available while only having one language spoken in the game.
        They mention it on podcaset #14 at their site.

    It was confirmed a while ago that it would be dual-language.

  • I got interested in this after seeing it at a game center, will probably try it out ^^
