Roguelite action game BlazBlue: Entropy Effect out now

BlazBlue Entropy Effect

The popular Arc System Works fighting game is now a 2D roguelike in BlazBlue: Entropy Effect.

BlazBlue: Entropy Effect is now available on Microsoft Windows (through Steam), via early access.

For those unfamiliar, BlazBlue was a franchise created by Arc System Works when they temporarily lost the rights to the Guilty Gear series. After acquiring the rights back, the franchise has been left in a limbo of sorts.

Fans suspect that the newest entry was an already developed title, and 91Act studio acquired the rights to the franchise so they could add a coat of BlazBlue paint on top of their game. Keep in mind, that is only speculation.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
