Guest characters, especially ones from outside of the fighting game realm, can breed some of the most interesting ideas for fighting games by blending in other genres mechanics.

Two guest characters are coming to the upcoming fighter Blade Strangers in the form of Gunvolt from Inti Creates' Azure Striker Gunvolt and Quote from a fellow Nicalis published game, Cave Story+.

Gunvolt appears to retain his marking abilities from his original series as a circular target appears on his opponent in the trailer along with his handgun and lightning strikes from the Azure Striker's Mega Man like platforming titles.

Quote also battles with a large handgun along with a short blade and can quickly combo between the two to rack up the damage in this brand new fighting game.

Blade Strangers is set to release this Summer on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam.

You can check out both characters' trailers after the jump.
