Aksys Will Reveal Two New Games At E3

By Spencer . May 22, 2013 . 4:01pm


Aksys will be attending E3 in just a few weeks and they’re bringing two brand new games to show. These games will be playable during the show. Last year, Aksys announced Ragnarok Tactics and Crazy Strike Bowling when we met with them. My guess is we’ll see something from Arc System Works. Either BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma and/or Guilty Gear Xrd –SIGN – in June.


Muramasa Rebirth for PlayStation Vita and A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda EX (pictured above) for Xbox Live Arcade will also be playable. Oh, and Aksys also has a mobile title to reveal. They released a Double Dragon game for iOS two years back.

  • Spirate

    I thought Arc System Works was doing the latest BlazBlue themselves; I think they already did the Guilty Gear Vita port.

    • TheExile285

      If ASW is doing it, I hope they keep the same voice actors from the previous games.

      • Tyler Beale

        And do something about…
        1. That Times New Roman/Arial font in CSE Vita,
        2. The character portraits and voices need to feel not compressed, and
        3. Those audio issues that I’ve had in CSE Vita and GGXXAC+R.

        • TheExile285

          When you say audio issues do you mean what happens after you suspend the game or put it in sleep during a fight? That might be more on Sony or Arcs side of the issue.

          I don’t have any issue you with the front of portraits but an instant way to skip dialoge when I’m trying to go for COMPLETE Story status would be nice.

    • Tyler Beale

      Actually, I think I was wrong. Even though their logo isn’t anywhere in the game, the localization credits say Aksys Games all over it.

  • Click This

    Fate/ Extra CCC please.

    • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

      Aksys states both games will be playable. I wish I was wrong but a PSP game in 2013 doesn’t seem like something they want to show at E3 – especially qualified by the word “playable”. Really? What are they going to have PSPs lying around for people to “play” a game that has the same battle mechanics as the first Fate/Extra game?

      1 of them is probably a PS3 game and the other one… I dunno… I hope its a PSVita localization.

      With XSeed and Aksys’s schedule so fully set in 2013… I wonder who will bring all the Vita games over…

      • TheExile285

        uh, what are you talking about, lol

        A.) Aksys already has a PSP schedule for 2013. A visual novel at that.

        B.) There are plenty of unlocalized Vita games to choose from. I’m hoping more localized.

        C.) Now that I think, Aksys could be the ones who are localizing Demon Gaze since it was trademarked for west not too long ago.

        • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

          I’m saying if its something that’s going to be playable at E3 – it will not be a PSP game, let alone Fate/Extra CCC becauase its battle mechanics are the same as its first game. It doesn’t have that spark. You’re gonna show something at E3 you’re gona show something new and sparkly.
          I am in love with my Vita. Demon Gaze, Conception 2 you know? I hope at least 1 of those games will be a Vita game.

          • TheExile285

            Ah, that’s what you meant.

            Conception II would be amazing but there’s no way that is seeing the light of day outside of Japan, lol

          • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

            Lol why not? Put some faith in Spike!

          • DyLaN

            I want to put some faith in Spike… But so far Danganronpa and the original Conception still haven’t cross the sea yet….

          • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

            Well those 2 games are PSP games…

            Conception 2 is a 3DS & Vita game – exactly the same as Virtue’s Last Reward. To be honest I cannot speculate what those 2 games are, Conception 2 isn’t going to be released in Japan until August, I’m not sure if Aksys is going to localize something that hasn’t hit the shelves yet.

            Demon Gaze has better chances as per the previous Siliconera post showing Kadokawa actually filed for a NA trademark.

            By all means I would love Fate CCC to be announced! But as some of my peers have stated already, Aksys will have to show something new and playable at E3… not the same old battle mechanics.

            Although BB or GG will be good… its still going to be disappointing if there is no portable goodness in at least 1 of them.

    • fenix7

      Hope so, but doubt it… but maybe hehe

  • StarWarudo

    Looking forward to that new Guilty Gear game.

  • Zonic505

    Wonder if they’re brand new or just localizations. Either way, can’t wait to see what they’ll be.

    • Tyler Beale

      The latter. Aksys, like NISA, can’t develop…

    • Solomon_Kano

      Just localizations. That’s all Aksys does as they have no development staff.

  • Tyler Beale

    Or that other Arc game for Vita.

    • Xblaze?

      • TheExile285

        oh I had forgotten about that. I doubt theyd announce it this soon if at all.

        • I doubt they will either since it is a VN. Especially this soon. I was just asking if that is the game he meant.

          • Tyler Beale

            Yes it is. Sorry I wasn’t exactly clear the first time.

            But I’m surprised nobody really talked about it, seeing as it was announced at the same time as the BB anime and GG Xrd.

          • Well it IS a VN they are less popular (though I love them).

        • Tyler Beale

          I don’t see why it wouldn’t be localized. I mean, BlazBlue is HUGE in the fighting game community, and fans of its story, I’m sure, want to know how XBLAZE and BlazBlue tie together. Is it the Ars Magus? Does it take place in Kagutsuchi or Ikaruga? How about the Military Academy? Or did Terumi fuck up somone in XBLAZE?

  • Solomon_Kano

    “My guess is we’ll see something from Arc System Works. Either BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma and/or Guilty Gear Xrd –SIGN – in June.”

    Wouldn’t that be a job for ASW US?

    I’m expecting me some portable goodness from Aksys.

    • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

      I support your portable goodness thoughts 100%.

      But Siliconera vs. our thoughts – the former has industry knowledge but we don’t… I mean I want to see all those PSVita games localized.

    • TheExile285

      How about BBCP for Vita :D

      • Solomon_Kano

        Well, first we’ll need ASW to announce a Vita version. It was announced as PS3-only. But, even then, that’d still be a job for ASW US.

        I’d have loved to see CP on Vita though.

  • Destiny/Additional ccc…..

  • TheExile285

    One of them better the new BB!

    I actually just got done watching about 20 minutes worth YouTube gameplay of CP and man does it look amazing. I hope Arc makes a Vita version down the road.

    • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

      Vita is where its at bro

    • I am getting BB:CSE for Vita in about a week (plus shipping) and would love for CP to 1. be announced for Vita, 2. be localized.

      • TheExile285


        CSE is a great game with lots of content. Its easily one of my most played Vita games

        Heck, I was playing it before I posted this

        • Yup I have heard good things from it.

      • I have an annoying time trying to do super-jump or dashes on my Vita, so BB:CSE is the only game I own for both the Vita and the PS3, not as part of Cross-Buy.

        Good game :)

        • TheExile285

          Yeah I have it too. Unfortunately there was a glitch with my copy of the Vita version so I can’t upload my save because the option disappeared. With 75% of Gallery unlocked and half of Story mode finished, im not starting over lol.

          • Wish they had cross-save, they don’t anyway… Even if you did upload it, it wouldn’t go over to the other console.

          • TheExile285

            It does have but its glitches. I upload the my Vita origonal save to PS Plus and tested it with a new save. It workd but something prevents the upload option from appearing on the Vita version.

      • Tyler Beale

        You don’t happen to be a Plus member, do you? If you are, you’re screwgled!

        • No…?

        • TheExile285

          Not really. I’m glad more people will be playing the game with PS Plus and the online should be more active but I’d always prefer my physical copy over it. Not ways gonna have PS Plus. Besides the game is like $20 now on Vita.

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    Fate / Extra CCC, Fate / Extra CCC, Fate / Extra CCC, Fate / Extra CCC, Fate / Extra CCC, Fate / Extra CCC, Fate / Extra CCC, Fate / Extra CCC~.

    • fayt255

      One can only hope, oh poor PSP these days.

    • Hraesvelgr

      I’m not going to get my hopes up, but yessssssssss.

    • fenix7

      The first one was what got me interested in the psp again, and this would too!

    • Hound

      Conception II, Conception II, Conception II, Conception II, Conception II, Conception II, Conception II, Conception II~

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    Fate/Stay Night – realta nua or Steins Gate please!

    • Junko Enoshima

      I hope so, but JAST USA might be planning on localizing the PC version….maybe Aksys can work something out with the 360/Vita/PS3 versions?

  • KuchikiSentou

    Gullty Gear for Playstation and any other great games. Aksys can hardly go wrong.

  • I hope it’s a surprise, something like Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus

    • That would be epic lol

      • DyLaN

        If it does happen, the comment section of the article will be….epic ;)

    • TheExile285

      I would laugh my ass of if they did that. I would then proceed to preorder it on Amazon

  • Testsubject909

    Hmm… I know it’s relatively useless to ponder but.

    Think they’ll ever get a Castle Shikigami 4 out? The game is a very fun shooter plus I love the bad translations.

    LOVE it.

  • Aristides

    Give me CCC people. We need to get our hands on the next Destiny/Aditional!

  • Prinny Dood

    I dont care what they annouce just give me some vita games please :)

    • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

      I like dis statement

  • fayt255

    Fate/Extra CCC localization please! I can’t argue with more BlazBlue or Guilty Gear though.

  • ZekeFreek

    Probably Blazblue. But I’m hoping for atleast one of the CH Vita games, Monster Monpiece or Holy Sorcery Story. CH seemed determined to get someone to publish them overseas.

    • Solomon_Kano

      CH’s games are more likely to be brought by NISA, if anyone.

      • ZekeFreek

        NISA has already said they don’t have much interest in the games. Aksys has also published CH games in the past, namely all of the Agarest games.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Oh really? Didn’t know they’d said that. Huh. Yea, then I guess you may as well hold out hope for Aksys.

          • ZekeFreek

            CH has even said they are actively looking for a publisher so it could happen.

        • Tyler Beale

          Link or it didn’t happen. (regarding NISA)

          EDIT: PLEASE don’t tell me that applies to the Neptunia games too… But they don’t have to do HN Rebirth R or whatever it’s called. The original sucked on the PS3, and let’s be honest, it’ll probably be worse on the Vita.

          • ZekeFreek

            Dood, it’s a really old forum post from forever ago, I am not digging it up for you. Suffice it say, they aren’t interested in the CH Vita games, atleast the ones I mentioned anyway.

  • revenent hell

    Hmm actually whatever it is it’ll probably be a good game im not much of a blazblue fan , since I think some incarnation of it will be one of the games so I just hope the other one will be appealing to me…. Which I think it will.

  • Tsunamori Nanashi

    And motherfucking GUILTY GEAR XRD


    • Sol Trigger would be sweet, always wanted to try it ^ ^

    • revenent hell

      Yes, yes and YES

  • Warboss Aohd

    Over My Dead Body.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Ask Sony for that sadly.T_T

  • michel

    So many games that deserve to be localized, and just two slots… ;)
    It will be difficult to please everyone of us, but so far Aksys made the right choices.

  • Christopher Nunes

    I wish it’s Fate/Extra CCC being announced to be localized but I doubt it and playable? The game is pretty dark so I don’t it will be playable to the entire audience.

    But if they ANNOUNCED it, I’ll be super happy! ^_^

  • Hound

    Jojo’s! … I mean Xrd
    And Conception II! .. I mean BlazBlue ..
