New action out of the upcoming Blade Strangers fighting game today as Publisher Nicalis has released both the game's opening cinematic as well as some new game footage.

This title continues to impress visually as the beautiful process of transforming 3-D models and animation into 2-D spritework makes it absolutely gorgeous to look at, especially as highlighted in the newly released videos.

We're also beginning to see the formation of the title's story as we get to see a handful of characters (including who looks to be the antagonist, Lina) in their respective places of training.

Blade Strangers, which is set to release in the summer of 2018, will be available across most gaming platforms including Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.

For more information and insight be sure to check out our developer interview from earlier this month.

Here are a few stills from the new media, all of which you can view after the jump.
