BlazBlue: Central Fiction Appears on Steam Database

By on February 9, 2017 at 9:00 am

A Reddit user by the name of Danaiden_TP recently spotted something interesting: a Steam database website now lists the currently console-only BlazBlue: Central Fiction, the latest and possibly final entry in the fighting game franchise.

There’s nothing more known, other than that entry created several days ago. In a way, this is similar to finding a registered trademark of a title long before it’s announced. In this case, it’s not a big surprise that Central Fiction is listed, but there aren’t any release date hints from Arc System Works as of yet. However, this could point that a PC version of BBCF is coming sooner rather than later.

Judging by Arc System Works’ current strategy, the company is striving to bring its console and computer versions closer to parity, as seen by the recent port of Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-. While there aren’t many differences between console and PC versions of Guilty Gear–aside from expanded graphical options–users report a significantly better experience in PC Network Mode than on PlayStation Network. This very well could be the case with Central Fiction, though there is no GG cross-play between PC and PlayStation.

We’ll keep our eyes out for any more hints, and in the meantime, check out a Naoto combo video and some flashy BBCF clash movies.
