official release for indie 2D fighting game Blazing Strike
was announced today! Published by Aksys Games, Blazing Strike
will be coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC
(Steam) in Spring 2022. Mark Chung, RareBreed Makes Games founder,
recently made the following statement to describe Blazing Strike.
"I was always fond of classic fighting games and I wanted to make a
fun fighting game with an emphasis on mobility. Our goal is to create an
homage to the classic pixel art-based 2D fighters, but with updated game
mechanics that not only will bring nostalgia to 90’s arcade kids but
will offer something new and entertaining to all gamers, regardless of
whether they have played fighting games before."
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.
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.
