91Act has announced that the BlazBlue spinoff game BlazBlue Entropy Effect will launch worldwide for PC via Steam Early Access on August 16, 2023, at 10:00 AM (UTC+8). The team also stated that fans could look forward to a “deep-dive into the Early Access details with an upcoming comprehensive FAQ” as well as a launch trailer in the near future.
English, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese language subtitle support will be available. But the full audio is stated to only be in Simplified Chinese, at least according to the official Steam page.
Not much about BlazBlue Entropy Effect has been revealed. However, we do know that it is a roguelite action where the Blazblue narrative can get even more involved. Players can inherit Legacy Skills from two other characters and acquire specialized Potential Skills through combat.
This is likely the roguelite gameplay elements, as the developers expect players to die during runs. Monetization and other gacha elements have not been confirmed. There are seven elements to gain powers from, Fire, Toxin, Light, Blade, Ice, and Umbra. This allows for further character customization.
We’ll continue to follow the release of BlazBlue Entropy Effect in the West. Arc System Works license the game; however, 91Act is developing and publishing it globally, so we are unsure who is handling the localization or if the mobile versions will come West.
