Arc System Works Triggering Release Of BlazBlue PC

imageIt hasn’t been officially announced yet, but PC owners should be able to get BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger in North America.


The ESRB just rated BlazBlue for PC and lists Arc System Works as the publisher. But, Arc System Works is all the way in Yokohama. Might be hard to publish a game overseas without Aksys doing the leg work… unless BlazBlue PC is being distributed digitally over Steam or a competing service. Seems like that’s a low risk route to go to bring the PC version here.


This version of BlazBlue has all of the barrier bursts and booby lady references from the console release plus free online play over Xbox Live. BlazBlue PC has cross platform compatibility so expect to challenge requests from PC players in the Xbox 360 release and vice versa.

    Nice. If this ever makes it to europe and I for some reason haven’t gotten it for PS3 by then, it’ll give me a reason to buy a USB arcade-stick as well.

    • If I remember correctly this has been announced for some regions of Europe by PAL publisher pQube.

    It’s rather baffling why they decided to release CT instead of CS for the PC when CS is coming out to consoles soon. Unless they have a tiny team that have been working the port before CS was even considered.

    So, I can…INFERNO DIVIDER!-On the go? Sweet. Err…but I just hope Aksys gets the sales they want. The PC…always fails in sales.(Arrrrrgh!)

    BlazBlue anywhere, I like.

    Lol, THIS late?

    BlazBlue PC definitely had the potential to rock, until they decided to keep it as Calamity Trigger. = Cross-console netplay with 360 doesn’t seem like it’ll do much good with everybody preoccupied playing Continuum Shift on said console.

    Oh well, here’s to hoping for some sales since it’d be nice to see a little more PC love. (Even if out of date versions)
