Developed by Studio Saizensen, Blade Strangers is a hardcore old-school fighting game. The streamlined four button control scheme makes it easy for beginners to deal out damage from day one but the intricate combos, counters and specials give tournament-caliber players plenty of opportunities for frame counting, chain construction and hit-box science.
Fighter roster includes characters from previous Studio Saizensen games (like Code of Princess and Sayonara Umihara Kawase), Nicalis games (like Cave Story+) and other surprise entrants.
Each character has three alternate color settings and their own familiar "home" stage.
Proprietary development system transforms 3-D models and animation into 2-D sprite work; every frame looks like a gorgeous anime drawing.
Online competition with minimum input lag.
Accessible controls designed to bring fresh blood to the ranks of fighting-game fans worldwide.
