Arc System Works, developers behind the BlazBlue series of fighting games, has announced a new game in the series.  BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma was announced earlier today at BlueFes 2012.

The newest game in the BlazBlue series features three new characters to the series: Amane, Bullet, and Azrael.  It also includes new artwork and different designs for a number of characters as well as new stage backgrounds and music.

So far, the game is Arcade only but, based on the history of the series, it is expected to be ported to home and/or portable consoles.  And it could be fairly soon after the initial release.  The last two retail games, Continuum Shift II and Continuum Shift Extend, were ported within a few months of Arcade release.  No console has been officially announced.

The official release of the Arcade version will be this winter but location testing for the game will take this coming week in Akihabara, Japan.  So stay tuned for more details as people begin experiencing the game.

Check out the reveal trailer:

    I’ve never really been a big fighting game fan, but I have played the first BlazBlue game. My chances of ever getting good at a fighting game are slim because I can never commit to it. Although now I’m remembering that I did play Brawl a ton and I really loved that game. I went to a few tourneys and got kicked out during the first rounds, but it was still fun. And then there are those who don’t consider Brawl a fighting game because it’s not technical enough. *sigh*
