BlazBlue fans, rejoice! Arc System Works has just announced the next installment of this long-running fighting game franchise–BlazBlue: Central Fiction.

Aside from the usual slew of gameplay updates expected from a brand new installment, Central Fiction will also bring with it two new playable characters in Hibiki Kohaku and Naoto Kurogane. Additionally, the recently released trailer also hints that Nine, one of the BlazBlue universe’s legendary Six Heroes, may be playable as well.
