v2.01 Online lobby now LIVE! (Dec 7th)


The much anticipated Online Lobby is now LIVE! You can now access the Online lobby feature via Network Mode!
The Online Lobby is a network feature which allows players to join to a universal lobby to interact with other players from all over the world using their custom avatars.
*Please note that online battles are still ultimately peer-to-peer connection based.

We have also carried out the following bug fixes to date. We deeply apologize for all the inconvenience caused:
- Fixed all of Jubei related contents
- Fixed all noted v2.00 UI misalignments
- Fixed all noted v2.00 display and text issues
- Squished some bugs causing the game to crash upon specific actions performed in battle.
- Slight adjustments were made to certain characters which were found to have erratic behaviors during specific actions, as follows:

  • Shiranui: Steel (D after Immovable Object: Lotus)
    Allows for input buffering now.
    Fixed an issue where Jubei was able to perform the move more than once while in a single jump state.
<ARAKUNE>

    Fixed an issue where Arakune turns translucent in certain circumstances after the move has ended.
<BULLET>

About This Game

Combining 2D fighting game and visual novel, the BlazBlue series has been supported by many fighting game fans. The latest installation, BlazBlue: Centralfiction, serves as the ending to the Azure Saga and reveals the truth that has ever been in mystery.

First time in this series, 「Naoto = Kurogane」 「Hibiki = Kohaku」 「Nine = the = Phantom」 and 「Izanami」 appear as playable characters and three DLC characters from the console version --「Es」 from XBlaze series that shares the same worldview as Blazblue, 「Mai Natsume」 from the BlazeBlue spinoff manga, Remix Heart, and 「Susano'o」, the true form of 「Yuki Terumi」-- newly join to bring to a total of 35 playable characters!

Introduction of New Systems

[Overdrive]
  • Each character can strengthen his/her unique ability for a specific period of time.
  • When [Overdrive] is triggered, the Overdrive icon changes into a purple gauge.
  • This gauge will decrease over time, and [Overdrive] will end when the gauge depletes.
  • [Overdrive] lasts longer if your character’s health is low. During activation, the round timer also stops.
  • After [Overdrive] has ended, the Overdrive icon will show a number counter. Overdrive can be used again when the number reaches 10.
  • The number increases over time or damage taken, but during [Active Flow], it charges much faster.

[Exceed Accel]
  • A powerful attack that can be used during [Overdrive] state.
  • [Overdrive] state immediately ends upon usage.
  • When activated during [Active Flow], the damage and effects are significantly boosted.

[Active Flow]
  • Fighting aggressively and landing attacks, or using heat gauge etc. will trigger the [Active Flow] state.
  • Enhances the attack power and shortens the [Overdrive] cool time etc. to make fighting conditions more favorable.
