The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has an interview with BlazBlue series creator Toshimichi Mori, who reveals that his next title will be completely unrelated to the series, and is rather something entirely new and not even a fighting game.
Regarding BlazBlue: Central Fiction—which launches this Thursday, October 6 in Japan, November 1 in North America, and November 4 in Europe—Mori said that there will not be an “Extend” version, as the game already has enough content to last for a lengthy amount of time. He also said that he wants to do balance adjustments sooner or later, as well as add new characters if there is demand for it. Regarding a sequel, he said that he thinks you’ll understand if you play the story mode. Es, Naoto, Hazama, and Relius say significant things.
If Mori were to make another fighting game in the future, he said that he would like to make something that upsets the balance of what we know about fighting games.
Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
