Blade Strangers

THE FUTURE OF FIGHTING GAMES BEGINS TODAY!

A malevolent force known only as Lina is devouring data from a vast, interdimensional server network. In desperation, the computers summon heroes from a variety of parallel game worlds to face off against each other, and ultimately Lina, in one-on-one combat.
Developed by Studio Saizensen, Blade Strangers is a hardcore 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 experienced players plenty of opportunities for frame counting, chain construction and hit-box science.

FEATURES

  • Fighter roster includes characters from previous Studio Saizensen games (like Code of Princess and Sayonara Umihara Kawase), Nicalis games (like Cave Story+, Binding of Isaac, 1001 Spikes) and other surprise entrants
  • Each character has eight different color settings and their own familiar “home” stage
  • Proprietary development system transforms 3-D models and animation into 2-D spritework; every frame looks like a gorgeous anime drawing
  • Online competition play
  • Accessible controls designed to bring fresh blood to the ranks of fighting-game fans worldwide

“Blade Strangers is an odd mix of zany characters and entertaining gameplay. Its unique four-button fighting gameplay is a refreshingly accessible experience for anyone that wants to duke it out with Shovel Knight, Isaac, Quote, or any of the fourteen different fighters within the title.”

“While Blade Strangers is a perfectly competent fighting game it will struggle to find an audience. Too simple for fighting fans, too niche for kids and not enough story for fans of the source material, it simply fails to meet the mark.”

“Blade Strangers is accessible to players of any skill thanks to simplified combat, but still leaves room for the more competitive players to shine.”
