Aksys Games and RareBreed Makes Games have released the first gameplay trailer for Blazing Strike, the 2D fighting game that promises to bring back the arcade experience of the old classics of the genre made by Capcom and SNK. The game blends the nostalgia of the old glories with a game system with modern mechanics. The title is expected on PC and consoles in the spring of 2022.
Blazing Strike features a four-button system with six normal attacks: light, medium, and heavy punches and kicks, as well as three defense moves: block, guard, and block. The title also introduces the Rush Trigger, which allows fighters to perform fast attacks and movements, slowly draining the Rush Meter. This allows players to perform combos while managing the Rush Meter.
The game will include three game modes: Story Mode, Arcade Mode, and VS Mode, with training, sparring, and online match via Persona AI and GGPO-based online play.
Blazing Strike will be released for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam in the spring of 2022.
