As hard as it is to believe, one of Arc System Works’ newer franchises, BlazBlue, is nearly ten years old now. Are you feeling old yet? To celebrate, ASW put up a new, commemorative site which provides useful tidbits about the franchise.

Though it’s only in Japanese, the BlazBlue 10th Anniversary website lets you read up on all the games in the series, from Calamity Trigger to Central Fiction. There’s also a section on all the characters, including those who appeared only in novels, comics, and side works. The “Creators” page only talks about Toshimichi Mori for now, but it looks like more content will be added. There’s also a Character Popularity Poll and an Illustration Contest.

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger released in Japanese arcades on November 19th, 2008, followed up by consumer releases on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2009. At the time, it appeared to be a successor to the Guilty Gear series.

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is coming in 2018 on the PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
