Today, Arc System Works and Aksys Games have announced the variety of ways in which they will support the event, including a massive bonus to BlazBlue: Chronophantasma’s pot, appearances by notable figures in the BlazBlue world, and opportunities to try out some of the company’s latest games.

First off, the money! Arc System Works is set to contribute $20,000 to the Chronophantasma prize pool, a figure boosted by another $5,000 courtesy of Aksys Games. Furthermore, the winner of the tournament will automatically qualify for ARC REVOLUTION CUP 2014 in August, with a fellow competitor of their choosing and an extra $5,000 from Aksys in tow. ARC REVOLUTION CUP regularly features some of the best Japanese competition in ArcSys’ various fighters, and this surprise qualifier will go a long way in adding an extra global flair to the proceedings.

Furthermore, the two companies will be hosting a joint booth at the event, where BlazBlue series producer Toshimichi Mori and voice actress Kana Ueda are scheduled to be on hand to talk to fans and provide autographs. Attendees will also be able to get their hands on playable demos of Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!!, BlazBlue Battle Cards, and Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, so be sure to stop by and try them out for yourself.

Do your best to be in Las Vegas the weekend of July 11 to experience it all first-hand!

    Well, holy fuuuuuck. This is totally not clearly going to lead to more Japanese players coming out and just curbstomping North America. Not at all…

    But seriously, this is awesome.

    And Kana Ueda, holy shit, I want her to insult me with Rachel’s voice

    • FACEFLICKER

      Then we can have her bully us in mahjong as Saki.

      • HellMuT

        Bully probably isn’t the correct word. Maybe more like massacre.

  • Takane Shijou

    Well then, that’s a lot of love thrown in.

  • commanderpepper

    Yo Anime! I’m glad this is happening, BlazBlue is a good game.

  • Canceris

    Aww, why no Under Night playable demo?
    I know there’s no localization plans, but might as well test the interest of people.

  • Mike Pureka

    Wow crazy. This will make my 0-2 loss even sadder. 😉
