The lights are on
Publisher Aksys has announced plans to bring BlazBlue: Battle Cards to North American iOS devices.
The game is developed by North American developer Alliance Digital Media, making it the first BlazBlue game to be created outside of Japan. Each player chooses one of 12 fighters and battles against another player using an assortment of attacks and special moves. The game's art is based on the recently released fighter BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, which is what you see pictured above.
The game will release this fall and will include six fighters with the option to purchase the other six.

Our TakeI'm not sure how well BlazBlue will function outside of its fighting game roots, but the fighting genre certainly seems like it has the potential to be suited to a card game translation. We are currently in the middle of a digital card game renaissance, so Aksys is certainly striking while the iron is hot.
