The next installment of Arc System Works's BlazBlue 2D fighting game series may be coming, "sometime in 2016."

Or at least, that's the tentative release date BlazBlue's creator, Toshimichi Mori, is eyeing.

"I am planning to have the next story sometime next year and the next game will have the last 25% of the story," Mori said in an interview with Siliconera.

For this next game, Mori is thinking of pushing the playable character count up from 28 to over 30. Will Nine and Jubei -- characters Mori addressed in this previous interview -- finally be playable?

He is also toying around with the idea of a tag-team mechanic -- and is seeking fan feedback on it.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend to introduce new characters Mai Natsume and Cajun Faycott from BB: Remix Heart manga

The next version of BlazBlue to be released on consoles later this year, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend, will introduce two new characters -- Mai Natsume and Cajun Faycott from the BlazBlue: Remix Heart spin-off manga, this week's Famitsu magazine will reveal on Thursday.

But these two characters will not be playable in the game. The 2D sprite of Mai Natsume you see in the banner image above was created by DeviantArt user Eriad-Eternas.

Instead, Mai and Cajun will be making appearances in a new chapter in BB:CPE's story mode entitled "Remix Heart Tour Version". The story mode chapter is based on the manga series's storyline. In the game, Mai Natsume (green-haired girl) is voiced by Saori Hayami, while Cajun Faycott (violet hair) is played by Saki Fujita.

Although they aren't new playable fighters, if you're a fan of the BlazBlue fiction, the extra story mode arc is one more reason Arc System Works is giving you to buy BB:CPE -- on top of two new playable characters Celica A. Mercury and Lambda-11, some major changes to the core gameplay mechanics and a bevy of balance changes to all of the existing characters.

For a look at how much the game has changed in BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend (also known as BBCP Ver. 2.0 in the arcades), here's nearly two hours' worth of gameplay footage of BBCP Ver. 2.0 from Kyoto's A-Cho arcade.

After a lengthy consideration process, this year's EVO games are now locked in -- and they're slated to be revealed this week, EVO Championship Series founding member Joey 'Mr. Wizard' Cuellar announced on Twitter today.

I hope you're ready to find out which fighting game titles will be made the main games at EVO this year. If not, well, you have slightly more than 24 hours to brace yourselves.

That's when a special EVO 2015 announcement Twitch stream is scheduled to happen (starting at 7PM PST). Mr. Wizard is making a trip down to the streaming service provider's offices for this live stream, and he will be joined by Twitch's very own Mike Ross for the broadcast. On top of revealing the EVO 2015 line-up, Mr. Wizard will also be taking questions from the stream monsters.

So make sure to come watch the stream here with us here on EventHubs tomorrow evening (it'll be on the front page as soon as the stream goes live), as we find out what this year's EVO main games are going to be.

Until then, watch the official EVO 2015 trailer below, and tell us your predictions of what the EVO 2015 line-up will be like. Which Smash title will be a main game this year?
