In this, the year of character crossover fighting games, one of the most ecclectic and yet fascinating is Blade Strangers. Featuring characters from the Umihara Kawase series, Code of Princess, Cave Story, Hollow Knight and The Binding of Isaac, it’s something of the misfits indie brawler, and it looks really quite good.
And we’ve got the release date and gameplay modes list, now. The game releases on August 28 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam. The full list of modes includes:
Story Mode – experience each character’s unique story
Arcade Mode – pick a character and win matches to advance
Challenge Mode – complete various skill challenges for each of the characters
Survival Mode – battle against a barrage of CPU-controlled opponents
Versus Mode – fight against friends or the CPU (with “standby” option)
Online Modes – create or search for rooms and engage in Stealth, Casual or League matches
Training – practice moves and combos to hone skills (with “standby” option)
Other Features – online leaderboards, screen view and control customization, player profiles, stat tracking, unlockable items (character colors, portraits, special titles)
Fingers crossed that this one delivers, because there’s been a few too many less-than-inspired decisions made with some of our favourite fighting games and/or fighting game rosters recently.
