Blazing Strike Launches on PS5, PS4, Switch & PC in Fall 2022, Physical Limited Edition / Box Art Revealed


Aksys Games, publisher of indie 2D fighting game Blazing Strike, announced today during their official livestream that Blazing Strike will launch in Fall 2022 — pushed back slightly from its original "Spring 2022" release window the publisher announced last year. A physical Limited Edition was also announced today, which includes: a full-color artbook, double CD soundtrack, and a set of collectible character cards. Pre-orders for the standard edition open tomorrow (February 18th), but Aksys didn't confirm the Limited Edition release or pre-order dates. Scroll down for photos of the Limited Edition as well as official Box Art for the upcoming classic-inspired indie 2D fighter! [UPDATE] Added New Gameplay Footage from Aksys Games.



    From Aksys Games:

"Inspired by classic arcade fighting game series from industry greats such as Capcom and SNK, Blazing Strike evokes the excitement and nostalgia of 2D pixel art genre pioneers while incorporating a unique games system with modern mechanics."

Blazing Strike
features a four-button system with six normal attacks: light, medium and heavy punches and kicks, as well as three defense moves: block, guard and parry. A Rush Trigger enables fighters to execute fast-paced attacks and movements, but using it will slowly drain the Rush Meter, sending the character into a temporary groggy state. This allows players to execute exciting combos while having to manage the Rush Meter. The game will include three play modes: Story Mode, Arcade Mode, and VS Mode, with training, sparring, and online match via Persona AI, and online play powered by GGPO.




"As the interest in fighting games continues to grow, we’re excited to see a title that explores new ideas in fun and creative ways while tipping its hat to grandfathers of the genre," said Akibo Shieh, founder and CEO of Aksys Games.

Blazing Strike launches on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam) in Fall 2022. Once again pre-orders are live on the official site. Stay tuned on The Fighters Generation for more updates and continued coverage of Blazing Strike.
