Following up on the announcement of an establishment of the American branch of Japanese game maker Arc System Works, the company has more news. Through its Japanese headquarters, the company made a statement regarding the upcoming BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle.
Arc System Works itself will handle the publishing and other aspects of the upcoming crossover title. Furthermore, they will perform miscellaneous actions — such as marketing, licensing, and distributing the game — and possibly future ones as well. There’s no word on the European publisher yet, but PQube has been the typical go-to for their fighting games.
Until now, Aksys Games typically handled the localization of many Arc System Works games, particularly the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue fighting game series. It’s unclear whether this relationship will continue for the “mainline” fighting titles from ASW.
