A bevy of BlazBlue screenshots accompany the announcement that Aksys game is bringing the spiritual successor to Guilty Gear to the states this summer.

Recently announced for Japan in the pages of Famitsu, Aksys is picking up the ball and running it to North America with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game due out this summer. As mentioned previously, the 2D fighter features twelve highly-detailed characters, each one animated with over 1800 frames worth of hand-drawn sprites. That's a whole mess of sprites.

The console version of the arcade fighter features new music, new animations, and a full-fleshed out story mode that apparently makes use of a girl with chipmunk ears and a tail, so I wholeheartedly approve. Online play and the ability to switch between Japanese and English voices is nice, but they had me at random chipmunk girl.

Been wanting to play this again since this last year's AX. It'll be great to see what they've done with the balancing and the new additional characters. Though these next several months are going to be long. However, SF IV will help past the time well enough, well RE 5 too, king of fighters eventually, devil summoner 2, and devil survivor for ds...... Okay so maybe we may need more time before it's release....... but good times?
