      Once again you’re reading my mind..

      • PrinceHeir

        “i can read your mind”

        -Psycho Mantis

    But but! Where’s Tao versus Tonberry omo;

    • Guest

      Where’s Kenshiro

      • z_merquise

        Busy blowing up bad guys’ heads.

  • puchinri

    Bahh. I thought it was going to be some random but bad ass fighter.
    I do like some of those designs though, although utter ridiculousness+scantily clad look of some bothers me a bit. It’s just so overdone and pointless. x’);

    I guess I’ll wait another who knows how long before I can get Zidane, Rawrgna and Iori tag-teaming Kuja, Hazama and Kyo.

    • Draparde

      I thought the same at first! as cautiously happy i would be about SE makign a fighter thats not dissidia, i would have grabbed it so fast

      • Guest

        Bring back Tobal and Ergheiz!

        • puchinri

          That would be awesome.

        • Am I the only one who loved the mini-RPG that was part of Ehrgeiz? I thought the diet-based growth system was neat. The fighting game was excellent too, but I adored that.

          • Guest

            they got the mini-RPG idea from Tobal 2

      • puchinri

        I’m glad it wasn’t just me. Lol, and pretty much that exactly. x’D
        If I had Zidane (and others) in a fighting game not Dissidia, especially with KOF and any Arc Systems Works characters? I wouldn’t hesitate to get it.

  • AnimeRemix

    Putting Ragna into this make this full of WIN!!!

  • RagnaXBL

    OMG when i read the title i nearly went nutz…then i saw cards…

    • RagnaXBL

      Honestly that was hypest 30 seconds of my life

  • :’) KoF, oh how I knew ye.

  • Pichi

    Wish arcades were popular again.

    How can you put in Kyo but not Iori? Obviously wherever Kyo goes, Iori wil be following trying to kill him. And of course Kyo will not care.

  • KyoyaHibari

    At first I was like this :D
    Now I’m like this -.-

  • *Grins* I like the crossover, Seeing an FF Character in another game is always Ultra-sublimity right on the spot! The other
    instances where we had FF Character debuts were Ehrgeiz and Dissidia(Which is less of an outside crossover, and more a compilation of major characters in each game), which everybody likes…and then, the problem is that people in
    Europe and the US will most likely never get their hands on it, unless for some unexpected reason they do all of a sudden decide to bring it to arcades all around.
    I think they not only could make a huge profit from it, but also increase their fan-base, with an always increasing number of new characters and what not, they could get back to at least 1/4 of what they used to be (imo)
    I really hope they take it in consideration….I mean I liked Lords Of Arcana, but that’s not quite what I hoped for (-__-)

  • Ace

    This looks cool.. .It’s only out over there, huh?

  • I really wish I could have played Lord of Vermilion.
    At first I thought (like I see other people have) this was going to be some super awesome new fighter. I can dream though….

    Also, speaking of KoF… any idea when KoF13 will be out on consoles? I haven’t been so up to date. I played a little of Ash’s story and it was amazing~

  • z_merquise

    The title really mislead you and thought that it’s a new fighting game starring characters from KOF, Blazblue and Square-Enix’s RPGs then actually, it’s a card game that only few fighting gamers were interested.

    Do not underestimate Spencer’s power of misdirection! Spencer, you are cruel to us sometimes.

    • I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic or serious, so I’ll respond as I do to all comments as this is serious. Right on the front page we said it was a card game and it was Lord of Vermilion too…

      • z_merquise

        Oops, sorry about that. I was actually joking. I was also referencing my favorite Marvel comic character who has this “power of misdirection”.

        Again, sorry if I sound like I’m trolling. That wasn’t really my intention. I’ll be careful next time.

        • Nah, it’s OK :) It’s just when I see comments like this I want to address them just in case someone isn’t joking. I understand it’s not your intention. Thanks for clearing that up :)

  • Why do they get character crossovers, and then use them in freaking CARD GAMES?! BlazBlue vs. KoF would’ve been awesome.

  • AnimusVox

    Is that Rydia in the top left card?
    Also…am I the only one who doesn’t really like Ragna?

    • Yes, that’s Rydia!

      • AnimusVox

        Ah thanks. I like that artwork.

  • IceRomancer

    I would go to my local arcade If games like this were there :/

    • AnimeRemix

      Don’t see how you don’t like Ragna, Windfist….

      • IceRomancer

        Are you implying that because of my username I prefer another blazblue character? xD

  • >card game


  • Could they just make a cross between these games? :< Even though they all have different game engines, PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!? D:
