While it’s not the first RPG to turn into a 2D fighting game, Blade Arcus from Shining is certainly a surprise. Announced at the Japan Amusement Expo, this is a fighting game with characters drawn by Shining series artist Tony Taka.
In addition to Shining series characters like Sakuya and Rage from Shining Blade, two new characters have been announced for Blade Arcus. Ryuga is the guy with the purple glove and Bailong Wong. Blade Arcus from Shining is scheduled for release this summer.
