Aksys Games Release XBlaze Code: Embryo on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3

Today has shaped up to be a big day for the Blazblue series in western markets, with North American publisher Aksys Games confirming their release of XBlaze Code: Embryo on both PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 gaming platforms. This visual novel (Yes, it isn’t every day a visual novel is localized for consoles) serves as a prequel to the BlazBlue universe most fighting-genre gamers would be familiar with, and takes place 150ish years in the past.

Promoted features of the game are available below:

Excessively Enjoyable Expressions: Users who interface with XBlaze Code: Embryo will be thoroughly pleased with the amount of facial manipulation, mouth synchronization, and body configurations that characters are able to express themselves with. All of this while joyfully listening to the original Japanese dubbed language track!

TOi System of Fate Determination: Ah yes, the fabulous TOi system! With it, players can read information about the world, thus informing Touya about the world. Choose what additional information Touya knows to alter his path and observe different endings!

A Twisting Tale of Intrigue: Touya Kagari, our hapless protagonist, is a typical high school student who is always eventually derailed from working effectively by the exhaustive minutia of curry etiquette explained by his (“helpful”) coworker Ringo Akagi. Sure the portions with curry are great fun, but let’s not forget the renegade mages, homicidal maniacs and secret organizations he has to stave off from taking control of the power responsible for the creation of the universe!
