BlazBlue Centralfiction Jubei header

At EVO 2017, Arc System Works had a number of announcements for fans following the end of the BlazBlue Centralfiction tournament. One of these announcements was a new playable character: someone that longtime fans of the BlazBlue series will be very familiar with, Jubei of the Six Heroes, and Kokonoe’s father.

You can see his announcement trailer here:

Jubei has been mentioned and has even appeared in person throughout all four games in the BlazBlue series, but has never been made playable before. He is known as one of the most powerful beings in the series’ universe, so it will be interesting to see how that power translates into in-game balancing.

It looks like Jubei will be joining the fight in BlazBlue Centralfiction soon, with the trailer announcing a summer 2017 release window. If you want to know what we thought of BlazBlue Centralfiction you can find our review here and here.
