During today’s Aksys announcement games stream, the publisher announced that their 2D fighter, Blazing Strike, will be releasing for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC in Fall 2022. No specific release date was provided.

Blazing Strike

Blazing Strike is a love letter to classic fighters by utilizing 2D pixel designs to deliver a nostalgic experience to fans.

The game features a 4-button system with six normal attacks: light, medium, and heavy punches and kicks, as well as three defense moves: block, guard, and parry. A Rush Trigger enables fighters to execute fast-paced attacks and movements, but using it will slowly drain the Rush Meter, sending the character into a temporary groggy state.

This allows players to execute exciting combos while having to manage the Rush Meter. The game will include three play modes: Story Mode, Arcade Mode, and VS Mode, with training, sparring, and online match via Persona AI, and online play powered by GGPO.
