XBlaze Code: Embryo

A demo for BlazBlue visual novel prequel XBlaze Code: Embyro is now available for download on the U.S. PlayStation Store, Aksys Games announced.

Players can queue it here up for PlayStation 3, or here for PS Vita.

The full game is due out on June 24. Find a new trailer and feature list below.

A Twisting Tale of Intrigue: Touya Kagari, our hapless protagonist, is a typical high school student who is always eventually derailed from working effectively by the exhaustive minutia of curry etiquette explained by his (“helpful”) coworker Ringo Akagi. Sure the portions with curry are great fun, but let’s not forget the renegade mages, homicidal maniacs and secret organizations he has to stave off from taking control of the power responsible for the creation of the universe!

Excessively Enjoyable Expressions: Users who interface with the soon-to-be released “demo,” will be thoroughly pleased with the amount of facial manipulation, mouth synchronization, and body configurations that characters are able to express themselves with. All of this while joyfully listening to the original Japanese dubbed language track!

TOi System of Fate Determination: Ah yes, let’s not forget the fabulous TOi system! With it, players can read information about the world, thus informing Touya about the world. Choose what additional information Touya knows to alter his path and observe different endings!
