Not long ago, Studio Saizensen announced that their new game Blade Arcus from Shining: Battle Arena will be available on Steam. It’s a 2D fighting game that includes characters from Sega’s Shining Blade, and Shining Hearts.
The game has a story mode that places you in a world full of swords, magic, and fighters ready to battle. Besides the story mode, they also got Training and Versus Mode which is nice if you want to show your friends how skillful you are by defeating them in PvP. There is also Online Mode, so you don’t get bored after you finish the story mode.
The pool of characters isn’t that big considering there are only 16 characters, but it isn’t small either. You get to pick two characters, one to control, and one to assist you in combat.
The art reminds me of most animes, and I’m not surprised considering that the developers of the game are Studio Saizensen. Most of their games art is anime oriented, which you can notice in games such as Umihara Kawase, and Code of Princess.
If you plan on picking this game up, now is the time. The game is -20% off on Steam, you can visit the link here.
