Arc System Works Targets PlayStation 4 For New Fighting Game IP
According to the interview, developer Arc System Works is looking to develop a brand new fighting game series and wants to debut it on the PlayStation 4. "We can't give you a definite title yet, but we want to make one," said Blazblue producer Toshimichi Mori. "We actually made Guilty Gear targeting the Dreamcast, and we started creating BlazBlue around the time of the PS3 release, so we want to make a game for PS4 when the system releases. Creating new things at the turning point of time is who Arc System Works is, so we would like to take it on."
Currently, the most recent installment in the BlazBlue franchise, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, is out in arcades in Japan. Immediately before BBCP’s release, Arc worked on Persona 4 Arena, a fighting can conversion of the popular Persona RPG series by Atlus. Arc also recently released Guilty Gear XX Accent Core +R a brand new balance patch for the classic Guilty Gear series. So even if Arc does let BlazBlue go in favor of a brand new fighting game IP, that’s not to say that they won’t come back and improve on it again in the new console generation.
