There Won’t Be An “Extend” For BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Creator Working On A New Game



BlazBlue series creator and producer Toshimichi Mori said in an interview in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine that there won’t be an “Extend” version for Central Fiction. He also revealed that his next game won’t be related to BlazBlue, and that it’s not a fighter. [Thanks, Hachima.]


  • In BlazBlue: Central Fiction, the story’s conclusion is met, so Mori hopes you guys get to play it until the very end.


  • He feels that of all fighting games, none has ever met an ending as well-done as Central Fiction’s.


  • When asked about his most memorable title, Mori said Chronophantasma, as it was the turning point of the series.


  • When asked about a sequel, Mori said that it’s something you’ll understand after playing story mode. And that Es, Naoto, Hazama, and Relius talk about significant things…


  • He’d like to eventually do balance adjustments on it, and new characters if there’s enough demand for it.


  • There won’t be an “Extend” (complete version) this time around. They aim to make Central Fiction into something that can be played for a long time to come.


  • When asked about his next title, Mori said that it won’t be related to BlazBlue in any way, and that he is ambitious to work on this completely new title that also isn’t a fighting game.


  • If he were to work on another fighting game in the future, Mori said that he’d like to make something that is different from common fighting games practice, once again.



BlazBlue: Central Fiction releases on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan on October 6, North America on November 1, and Europe on November 4, 2016.
