Just look at the sexiness, that thing can be your companion whole night, if you know what I mean.

I'm talking about the mug, it's best for coffee and tea if you need to pull an all-nighter.

The art book is limited though, only people who pre-order it early can get it.

We have more info on Terumi this time, as well as details on the story mode.

Ifprhkw_medium

Terumi's Drive is Force Eater, which allow him to suck enemies' Heat Gauge whenever he manage to hit his opponents with his Drive attacks (doesn't matter if he is blocking or not, as long as it hit, sounds kinda cheap to me...)

Kosnzdy_medium

Jp5ojiq_medium

One of his moves is Garengeki (Fang Scythe), it's a move used on opponents who had been knocked down, where he will keep stomping on the opponent and kick all the way to the corner.

Geylz6o_medium

Qzszsjd_medium

8dzywut_medium

Distortion Drives:

Jyakyou Messenga, where he will summon a snake like aura and dash toward enemies, best for surprise attack from a distance.

Rmlfmfb_medium

90b0c4w_medium

Kouga Soutenjin

Kick upward twice, can't be interrupted while activating (like Shouryuken), which ca be taken advantage of.

4pngjdr_medium

Rwvfipb_medium

Jyabaku Fuenjin. Can be activate when your Heat Gauge is above 50%, but it will consume all of your Heat Gauge no matter how much you have. The more you have, more damage it will deal.

2cp330x_medium

Jyarin Renshouga, hitting the opponent twice to the air with Ouroburos, then strike him down from above with a giant snake.

W6mj5kn_medium

Bjtehod_medium

Muec83a_medium

Overdrive is Nightmare Reaper, which allow him to deal more damage and suck more Heat with his Drive attacks, as well as enhancing all of his Distortion Drives.

Hl742dn_medium

The Six Heroes Chapter in the story mode will be focusing on the characters appeared in the prequel novel such as Celica and Bloodedge, illustrating both stories takes place 100 years ago and the present.

Some interesting info on the villains, the Magic Guild, which take us one step closer to, and two step further away from Blazblue.

Tbjcjli_medium

Avenge, a member from the Magic Guild. Followed his target, Ripper to the town. Despite being part of the Magic Guild, he is not capable of magic.

Dg76lu4_medium

N5podum_medium

Ripper, the number one wanted man of the Mitsurugi Organization. A psychotic serial killer who kills for fun. Had been running for ten years and slayed hundreds of elites from Mitsurugi Organization and magicians who pursued him.

2np8kon_medium

Zgle8zc_medium

Acht, number eight of the Ten Saints. A talented magician who became one of the Ten Saints despite his young age. Was taught by Sechs, and hold feelings for him that's more than just admiring. Has a big pride and confidence, which gave her some sort of "queen's aura" around her. Good at reading other people's mind and hidden emotions.

I93reth_medium

Gyi8yk2_medium

Drei, number three of the Ten Saints. Always thinking about the questions of "what is a real Ten Saints" and "what it takes to be a real Ten Saints". A serious person, and dispute his bosses within the Magic Guild who are always fighting each other for power and higher positions. Think of Sechs as the perfect example of what a Ten Saints should be, and admire him in a very zealotical way.

Zmyw3pw_medium

Q3unbmp_medium

Sechs, number six of the Ten Saints. A quiet person, and no one ever knows what he is always thinking. Managed to understand how gravity works with magic, which is something no one has manage to solve until now, and was chosen to be a Ten Saints at the age of 18. He is the only one who is capable of gravity magic, which consumed large amount of mana.

N4o4c6u_medium

So, what does all these have to do with Blazblue? Well, the keyword here is Ten Saints. What is Ten Saints? Well, they are the ten elite member named after numbers within the Magic Guild, and is mentioned in the Blazblue prequel novel. Remember what the other name Konoe A. Mercury is? Yes, she is number nine of the Ten Saints. But here comes the confusion, both Eight and Seven made their appearance in the novel, but number eight here in XBLAZE is Acht, which is definitely not the same person as Eight.

So there is only two possibility. 1. It's an alternative universe. 2. It's a prequel to Blazblue, the Ten Saints in Blazblue are the new Ten Saints, who succeeded the old Ten Saints we see here.

Another thing worth mentioning, Sechs use gravity magic. and if you recall, he was seen using a very similar weapon and Drive as the Murakumo Units in the opening animation, and his voice actor is Sugita Tomokazu, the same guy who voiced Ragna the Bloodedge. Coincidence, I THINK NOT.

Third thing, which I think it's just a homage rather than story related reference, Ripper has a Kaka doll as his necklace.

Check out the opening animation if you are interested, there are actually few Blazblue stuff that can be seen in there, I didn't even noticed them until I took a close look the second time.

New RPG from Gust, the developer of the Atelier series. It's an RPG about a bunch of kids starting an adventure in a world with no other humans and civilization. Sounds like my kind of thing (remember my illustration class project?). The theme of the game is time, and it will be a rather light hearted and easy game.

World setting: first strike

Character design: second strike

Gust: third strike

Character designer is Non by the way, who's also the illustrator of Chuunibyou, here is his Pixiv:

X299qwq_medium

Okay, it's not a exactly a Japanese game, and I have never heard of it until now. Basically it's a game where you have to prevent the princess die in gruesome way for 40 weeks until she is crowned. Boy, I hope she won't get ahead of herself...

So the reason I'm writing this is that the game is having a Steam Greenlight campaign. And apparently it was highly received when I was looking it up. There is a demo for the game, won't hurt to check it out.
