Arc System Works has revealed that Es, the memorable heroine from Xblaze: Code Embryo – a visual novel set in the Blazblue universe – will appear as a playable combatant in Blazblue: Central Fiction.
Central Fiction, the alleged “conclusion” in Blazblue’s infamously complicated narrative, has been playable in Japanese arcades since last year, but the console release is still forthcoming. The reveal comes via the latest issue of Famitsu. This is rather exciting and I’m personally curious as to how they’ll tie Es into Blazblue’s story, since it stands fairly independent from Xblaze‘s own narrative. From the pics we can see Es has access to some sort of projectile and a big slash that looks to serve as an anti-air.
Her artwork and a pair of scans showing her in action can be viewed below.
