Aksys Games and RareBreed Makes Games have shared a debut trailer for Blazing Strike, which is coming to Nintendo Switch.
This 2D fighting game takes inspiration from arcade classics from “industry greats” like Capcom and SNK and will have a four-button system with six normal attacks – light, medium and heavy punches and kicks – as well as three defensive moves – block, guard and parry.
The Rush Trigger will allow fighters “to execute fast-paced attacks and movements,” but its use will slowly drain the Rush Meter which can send your character “into a temporary groggy state.” You will need to balance executing combos while managing the Rush Meter.
There will be three play modes – Story Mode, Arcade Mode and VS Mode – alongside training, sparring and online match via Persona AI, and online play powered by GGPO.
Blazing Strike will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Spring 2022.
