Developer Quotes and Pre-Order Info
Level 99 Games’ CEO, Brad Talton, had something to say regarding the project and their general goal with this expansion. He says:
“Our mission at Level 99 Games is to create a meaningful gameplay experience that translates into fostering relationships between both teammates and opponents, as well as with the characters they choose to go to battle with.”
“The addition of BlazBlue to our current line-up of EXCEED Fighting Card System was a thoughtful decision we made after evaluating the current EXCEED landscape, and assessing which characters and universes we felt would contribute the most to the overall game play experience. One of the most-requested properties by our fans, the decision was that BlazBlue was a perfect fit.”
