Story


It's 2065 and the world is not what we used to know. Fennoscandia has sunk deep into the ocean, half of Ireland is ridden by haemophages, nuclear power has been replaced by reality-distorsion-resonance (RDR) power plants, and an alien planetoid has made first contact for more than fifty years, by now.
In 2064, a major accident shook the whole Europe: Euterpe, the Italian capitol city, was razed by an explosion of incredible power, followed by a storm of black lightnings. The accounts of the witnesses diverged and no light was shed on the real cause of the disaster. After a one-year manhunt, the Delta Team has finally found a consistent trail, which leads directly to a secret governative project known as Schwarzer Blitz, "the black lightning"...

Game Mechanics


  • five button system: Guard, Punch, Kick, Tech and Trigger
  • fluid combo system: most attacks can chain into each other, leading to long strings and combos
  • impact attacks: send your opponent flying with powerful blows - if near the border of the stage, this will throw them out of the ring
  • trigger attacks: by using a bullet counter, the next attack will break the opponent's guard and increases the hitstun, leading to easier combos and humongous damage
  • trigger guard / combo breaker: when comboed, you can use a bullet counter to cancel the hitstun and strike back against your opponent

  • 24 playable characters
  • A total of more than 100 skins (circa 4 per character)
