Universes collide in Blade Strangers, now available on consoles and PC

Blade Strangers

Blade Strangers, the hardcore old-school fighting game from Nicalis and Studio Saizensen, is now available on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PCs via Steam. The console versions of the game are available in both physical and digital formats.

Similar to this summer’s BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle (read our review here), Blade Strangers is a cross-over fighter with a roster of characters spanning a number of properties including The Binding of Isaac, Cave Story, Umihara Kawase, Azure Striker Gunvolt, Code of Princess, and Yacht Club Games’ Shovel Knight series.

To celebrate the game’s release, Nicalis has released a launch trailer showcasing the game’s fast-paced combat and varied cast of characters. Watch the chaos unfold in the trailer below:

Blade Strangers is priced at $49.99. However, those who purchase the game on Steam will receive launch week savings of 25% until September 3rd.
