I'm opening up a general thread for the upcoming Blade Strangers and it contemporary Crystal Crisis. I thought of an idea for the roster of a future Crystal Crisis sequel, which would remove Knight, Cedric and Johnny Turbo, but would also include Eden, Krampus, Kimba the White Lion, Ambassador Magma, Sapphire, Lady Zozo, Sugimoto from The Tempura of the Dead, the red lion boss on the lower-left of this sprite sheet from Akuji the Demon, Gunvolt, Shovel Knight, Hat Kid, DJ Grooves, Yuuri Kozukata, Ren Hojo, Ouse Kurosawa, Sans, Papyrus, Shantae, Leo Caruso, Vincent Moretti, Giana, Maria, Knight Gundam, Collete, Envirio & Greta from the Visual Novel ENIGMA:, and Remote Control Space Dog, an old Japanese toy from the 1950s.
EDIT: I forgot two characters for this roster; Copen & Joule.

New Cover art for Blade Strangers.
I don't know why I'm really excited to play as the girl from Yumi's Odd Odyssey in a fighting game.
But I'm really excited to play as the girl from Yumi's Odd Odyssey in a fighting game.
I assume her name is Yumi.
I'm curious to see if there's more characters to be announced. I for one am thinking Shantae will be in the game.
If there are, they'd be DLC (Which is possible if the game has decent sales I guess) they certainly have revealed the entire core roster.
Blade Strangers will release in the West on August 28th for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Also, here's half an hour of gameplay.
If you preorder Blade Strangers from Amzaon Japan, you will get two different post cards.
An hour of footage for Crystal Crisis.

After reading the above link, I found out something about Training Mode that I think is really cool;
"You can even take control of the “dummy” opponent and record a sequence of actions, then replay them so you can practice countering those specific moves!"
Have any other games done this?
Pretty much every traditional fighting game I can think of has a record option, yes.

Kind of wish it was a bit cheaper, cause it looks interesting enough to me. Problem is, Dragon Quest XI is on the horizon and I'm way more interested in that...
