Japan is getting Jubei in BlazBlue: Central Fiction on August 31st

Arc System Works has announced that Jubei will be available for BlazBlue: Central Fiction as DLC on August 31 in Japan, alongside a free patch adding in the recent arcade version battle balances.

The DLC and patch will only be on PS4, and PS3. As for PC players, Arc System Works has said that the downloadable content and free patch will launch for the PC version “in the near future.”

BlazBlue: Central Fiction is currently available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC

Here is a quick overview of Jubei.


Jubei is one of the Six Heroes that saved humanity during the Great Dark War that occurred 100 years ago. He is an important character who has a close connection to the characters of this game. He is the protagonist Ragna’s swordsmanship master and life saver, husband to the Great Mage Nine, and father to Kokonoe. By making Jubei playable this time, you can learn of his various aspects, such as the power true to his name of “the strongest being on the planet,” of his suffering, and of his love for his family.

Focus Attack 4:Donate Cans (FADC4)

For the fourth year in a row, the Colorado FGC has come together to compete for a good cause. Fight Attack Donate Cans (FADC) 4 surpassed last year’s donations for the Denver Rescue mission gathering over 2,200 perishable goods and raising $3,000 for turkeys. This would not have been possible without the community and their desire to compete for a good cause. Many thanks go to: GameWorks, Denver Foe Hammer Shop, Paradise Arcade Shop,  Aksys Games, Frosty Faustings IX, Northwest Majors, and CEO Gaming Inc.for sponsoring the event.

And of course,  special thanks goes to the head organizer: David Watt.  Without him and his desire to give back to the community, this event would not have been possible. Thank you for bringing the community together for such a wonderful cause!

Review: BlazBlue Central Fiction (PS3, PS4)

I have always been a fan of Aksys Games fighting games, the Guilty Gear series, Under-night in Birth, Chaos Code, the Blazblue series, plus many more. So when I heard that the last installment of Blazblue will be out this year I was totally on board for learning the mechanics, although, the Blazblue series has mostly been the same for the last few games. That being said, I wondered what this title had to offer me and players alike.

Visuals

BlazBlue has always had an art style of its own with the anime look of newer Guilty Gear titles but in a more 2D aspect. The game is flashy and the effects look awesome; it’s enough to keep battles intense and players on their toes. The menus even got a ramp up from the originals; they are much easier to navigate with less sub menus, and makes the game look better as a whole. The story mode also approaches the visual novel mode aspect in a more unique way compared to previous titles since cut-scenes are now fully animated. All in all the game is terrific with not many flaws in the visual aspect.

Audio

Aksys Games titles always have a great soundtrack with the rock style music and the piano scores that really captivates players and brings them into the world of BlazBlue. Central Fiction brings in some remastered orchestrated music from past titles and new tracks for this one as well. Players will enjoy listening to the intense soundtrack while taking on other players across the globe. This is definitely a soundtrack to add to your playlist.

Gameplay

The game has some new features players can except to see such as the re-balancing of old characters, the addition of new characters, new single player modes, the return of the “Crush Trigger” mechanic, and the addition of the “Exceed Accel” mechanic; a powerful attack that can be used only while Overdrive is activated. The single player modes will have you immersed in completing them for offline play, and the online modes will have you wanting to rank up and take down anyone in your way. The “Exceed Accel” mechanic will be the main part of this title that will draw veteran players and new players in, because it adds a new touch to the game and makes it feel more original. The addition of seven new characters, Hibiki, Nine, Naoto, Izanami, Susano’o, Es, and Mai complete the title, making Central Fiction feel new and fresh. The addition of new characters definitely adds to the story mode as well, bringing out the climax of BlazBlue Central Fiction.

Verdict

This is the Blazblue title players have been waiting for, with its story ending flawlessly, new mechanic to learn and keep you engaged, and the outstanding soundtrack. I would say this is a must-buy for any fan of the fighting genre.
