Good value for money coupled with some of the most gorgeous 2D hand drawn graphics on the market and new player accessibility make this fighter an exceptional buy.
BlazBlue Centralfiction Special Edition may a few years late to Nintendo Switch, but that time hasn't dulled the sharpness of its 2D fighting package. Not only does it give the Ragna saga a proper send-off with a story mode that's so rich in character development it could be a full anime season in its own right, but it offers a staggering number of modes to keep you playing long after the credits roll. It runs silky-smooth docked or in handheld modes and runs like a dream online. The lack of an English dub still rankles, and new adopters are going to have to do a lot of research to understand what's going on, but it's well worth the effort.
This remains one of Arc System Works' best releases, and with flawless performance in handheld mode it's never been easier to take the fight with you to a friend's house. Though you may have already picked up Cross Tag Battle last year, you'd still do well by checking out this fully-featured mainline entry. Central Fiction is the best BlazBlue has ever been, and this may be the right time to join the battle if you haven't already.
BLAZBLUE CENTRALFICTION Special Edition is a fun fighting game with crisp graphics and smooth controls. With various characters and modes, the gameplay seems endless. If you enjoy fighting games, this is one to give a try.
BLAZBLUE CENTRALFICTION Special Edition provides a definitive BlazBlue experience by repackaging all of CENTRALFICTION 's content with a handful of slight additions. With plenty of modes, characters, and unlockables, it can endlessly occupy players at home or on the go.
BlazBlue Central Fiction Special Edition is worth considering. It might not be as high profile an entry compared to the competition, but there's a lot to love thanks to its detailed story, a host of colourful characters, and stellar production values.
