The highly acclaimed 2D fighting game gets set to arrive down under!


Gold Coast: 16th December 2009. N3V Games together with All Interactive Entertainment (AIE) are pleased to announce that they will be releasing BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger across Australia and New Zealand on PLAYSTATION®3 and Xbox 360®.

BlazBlue is a new experience in 2D fighting games making exceptional use of the power behind the Next Gen consoles and online gameplay networks. The game is created by Arc System Works, the Japanese developers behind the critically acclaimed, long running Guilty Gears fighting franchise which began in 1998.

BlazBlue has been hailed as the “game that every self-respecting console fighting fan should play”. It has already enjoyed huge success in Japan and critical acclaim in North America with over 70% of reviews rating the game as 90% or higher, three giving it a perfect score!

N3V Games will be publishing the Zen United line-up including the much anticipated BlazBlue.


“We have a fantastic line-up going forward into Christmas and are starting the first half of 2010 aggressive with 3 monster titles with BlazBlue being one of them! The Zen titles are a welcome addition to N3V’s line-up and we will be working very closely with them to make all their releases a great success. We have big plans for BlazBlue upon release that I’m positive all the OZ gamers out there will enjoy – so keep up to date via our website and the BlazBlue Australian site which will be active come December.” – Paul Olsen (N3V Games – Production Head).

In the PAL version all characters have an “Unlimited” unlockable and there are new character colours. Online, the PAL version is completely compatible with US and Japanese networked players.

For those new to the fighting action genre, the game has been specifically designed so that it’s easy to pick up at the beginning, with an ever increasing depth which introduces new and more demanding skills.

The game features an all-original Goth-anime cast with intricately detailed hand drawn high-Definition character sprites. And they are a unique bunch indeed.
