Fighting games like Dragon Ball FighterZ, Street Fighter V and Tekken 7 are at their peak right now especially with EVO 2018 just around the corner but it’s also important to take a look at great games with potential like the upcoming fighting game Blade Strangers from Nicalis.
What’s unique about this particular title is it’s character roster, developed by Studio Saizensen (Umihara Kawase, Code of Princess and Blade Arcus from Shining: Battle Arena) the game will include various character their library of releases along with Nicalis releases and special guest characters which include previously mentioned Shovel Knight and Isaac.
Those aren’t the only guest characters currently announced, Nicalis also previously announced Gunvolt from Inti Creates’ Azure Striker Gunvolt will be joining the battle when the game releases this Summer on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
