A new fighter, Blade Strangers, has been announced. The company working on this game is known as Studio Saizensen, and published by Nicalis.


This is technically a crossover fighting game thanks to its addition characters that come from Cave Story (Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya, Nicalis), Code of Princess (Studio Saizensen), and Umihara Kawase (Studio Saizensen).

It looks like there will be about 10 playable characters, if the select screen is anything to go by. The confirmed characters so far are Solange, Kawase, Curly, Master T, and Ali.

While the gameplay is befitting of more traditional fighters, the inputs are said to be simple like the Smash Bros. series. This means that the game will be easily accessible to newcomers.

The game is expected to release on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam in Q4 of this year. In Japan, the game will be released in the arcades as well.
