Arc System Works has released a new trailer for the third installment in the BlazBlue series, BlazBlue: Chronophantasma. The trailer shows two new characters, Kagura Mutsuki and Yuki Terumi, in action, followed by a brief teaser for the anime adaptation series, BlazBlue: Alter Memory, which is set to release in Japan this Fall.
The trailer has some explosive action featuring the two characters. You can watch the video below:
As reported in a previous article, Kagura and Yuki are described as having fighting styles that set them apart from the game’s roster.
In the trailer, Kagura’s abilities to attack via hold commands are shown when he pummels his opponent with frontal and crouching attacks at a rhythmic pace. His ability to perform specials on the ground and mid-air are also revealed.
Yuki is shown to be a close-range fighter when he uses hand-to-hand combat against his foes, but he does materialize a chain-like weapon for ranged-attacks and yanking. He is supposed to perform multiple Distortion Drives, and it is realized when he unleashes a flurry of chain-attacks, and finishes his combo with an accumulative special move. These attacks are supposed to deplete the Heat Gauge.
When the teaser reveals BlazBlue: Alter Memory, it showed brief images for the character designs, which are handled by Tomoyuki Shitaya. The series will be directed by Hideki Tachibana, and BlazBlue producer Toshimichi Mori will be supervising the series. The games’ original actors will reprise their roles.

BlazBlue: Chronophantasma will be releasing in Japan on October 24 for PlayStation 3. There has been no word about localization or a multi-platform release as of yet.
