Famitsu has gone up with a new online preview for the November-bound arcade release of BlazBlue: Central Fiction.

The game is getting an “exceptional update” to the core story of the game, giving a lot of volume for the scenarios of each character.

Following the passage of time, continuation scenarios are going to be presented. There will also be new modes added like score attack, as well as sparring mode, the latter of which you can view below:

Amane, Arakune, Azrael, Bang, Bullet, Carl, Celica, Hakumen, Hazama, Izayoi, Jin, Kokonoe, Litchi, Makoto, Noel, Platinum, Rachel, Ragna, Relius, Tager, Taokaka, Terumi, Tsubaki, Valkenhayn, μ -No.12-, ν -No.13-, and Λ -No.11-.

Three new playable characters are coming to the game as well: Naoto Kurogane, Hibiki Kohaku, as well as Konoe A. Mercury.

BlazBlue: Central Fiction is launching sometime later next month in Japanese arcades.

Editor’s Note: Translations provided by Claude Smith. The article originally mentioned a “super ring” mode, this was a mistranslation of “sparring mode.”
