While BlazBlue is a fighting game, Arc System Works created an elaborate world and story for the series. The plot begins with humanity on the brink of extinction at the hands of the "Black Beast" who is defeated by the newfound power of Ars Magus. BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger follows Ragna the Bloodedge, a rebel who has a large bounty on his head.
Toshimichi Mori, Producer on BlazBlue, has an idea about how the story in BlazBlue will unfold. "Now, we’re a little bit over halfway through," Mori said to me while we were talking about the BlazBlue series. Earlier, we were discussing the complexity of BlazBlue and I made a joke about how Arc System Works games should have many "systems" in them. I’m glad he got it. Mori was in a cheerful mood even though I asked about the lack of a sleep feature in the Nintendo 3DS version of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II.
"The plan was to finish the series with the next title, but at the moment it’s getting pretty hard to wrap everything up," Mori continued.
We’ll have more about the BlazBlue series next week when our interview with Toshimichi Mori goes live.
