Fighting game Blade Strangers will bring together an eclectic mix of characters from various games when it comes to Nintendo Switch and Windows PC this summer. Developer Studio Saizensen is including many of its own characters, like Umihara Kawase and notoriously underarmored Solange from Code of Princess.

Blade Strangers publisher Nicalis’ titles will also be represented in the game, with characters like Quote and Curly Brace from Cave Story and Isaac from The Binding of Isaac.

Isaac was revealed today in a gameplay video that shows him beating up on Quote, using tears and Mom to deal some pain.

It’s been a big week for guest character announcements in Blade Strangers. Cave Story’s quote was unveiled earlier this week in a similar fashion.

Quote’s reveal was preceded by the announcement that Gunvolt, from Inti Creates’ Azure Striker Gunvolt series, will also appear in Blade Strangers.
