This version has arcade mode, versus mode, and score attack mode. Story mode, training mode, and online play aren’t part of the package, but this version is just 600 yen ($7).

    And you can do cool stuff like this in this version!

    The W8 app store would be much more useful if you could install anywhere outside of the primary hard drive. As it is, I can’t buy anything cause it would fill my 60GB SSD too quickly.

  • Bloodios

    DX11.1 support?

  • Lionxie

    This is way too old….

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. So that’s Windows response to Steam then? I’d say that Blazblue is more game than app, but that might just be marking words… do they actually CALL it the “app store” too?

  • ArmoredBoar

    So I tried out the demo.

    Pfffft touch control layout.

    Anyway, since this is basically a straight arcade port with a menu, with not even an options menu, there is literally no reason for them, absolutely NONE to not release CSEX for $15 instead, even as a barebones release. Rereleasing CT as a serious tablet pseudo-port at this day is not only ridiculous, it also makes no sense. Hell they’d make more money releasing BBCP’s mere Arcade Mode before consoles for $40.

    ArcSys I don’t understand you.

    • Does it connect to xbox live? Because in my pc it can’t

      Also there is a settings menu, you have to open the settings charms

      • This is NOT the same port released two years ago (which is still a whopper $34.99 US today). Touch controls and requiring Windows 8 are obvious signs.

        Online play was also removed according to the above siliconera article.

    If it means showing ASW that we want more BlazBlue on PC, I’ll happily buy this for the. . . 4th. . .5th. . . you know, it doesn’t matter how many times I’ve bought this before! Stop giving me those looks, guys! <.<

    Lets see… Windows 8 only, very low price. There is a 99% chance that Microsoft threw money at them to create this just for the purpose of trying to promote the Windows 8 store.

    Nobody making PC games with the intent on making money through sales is targetting Windows 8 only.

  • CirnoLakes

    Blah, I’m starting to think that Microsoft has pretty much exclusive PC rights to this title.

    I can’t say that the Windows 8 store is where I’d like to get anything.

  • Oniros

    Pfffffft good thing I got the GFWL version for $20 (buying points from CrazyGameTime).
