Now, throughout a panel at Bitsummit hosted in the Miyako Messe venue in Kyoto, Nicalis presented some fresh new gameplay of Studio Saizensen approaching fighting game Blade Strangers.
The game was played live on stage on Nintendo Switch in docked mode using pro controls.
The first match you’ll notice below pitched Shovel Knight from Emiko from Umihara Kawase, while the next match sees Shovel Knight in action again, but this time against Curly from Cave Story.
Blade Strangers is a crossover fighting game mixing characters from Studio Saizensen games with more from Nicalis titles, and quite a few guests from the indie scene.
I must say, as notoriously awful since I am at fighting games, this looks like a whole lot of fun. Also, the revived intro introduced yesterday is actually, really badass, and I really enjoyed Code of Princess, to ensure’s bonus to me.
