Development

After the initial announcement of Dark War in August 2017, Toshimichi Mori, the producer of the BlazBlue series, began occasionally posting teaser sketches on Twitter. The initial promotional website for Dark War included music, the Dark War logo, and two pages of a prologue.

On January 11, 2018, the game's official website was updated with a short pitch for the story and an image and short description of Ciel Sulfur. [4] The first episode of BlazBlue Walker was also released, to serialize on a biweekly schedule. Preregistrations opened on February 14, 2018, accompanied by a website update that added images and descriptions for both the male and female protagonist, as well as six other returning characters (Kazuma Kval, Trinity Glassfille, Jin Kisaragi, Noel Vermillion, Tsubaki Yayoi, and Bullet) alongside Ciel Sulfur. The Dark War logo was also replaced with a splash image featuring Raquel Alucard, Trinity Glassfille, Kazuma Kval, Jin Kisaragi, and Trinity Glassfille.

Originally planned for a 2018 release, the game was quietly delayed at the end of 2018. In May 2019, at a panel at MCM London, Mori confirmed the game was still in development.[5]

January 13, 2021, the game's Reboot PV was released and its release date announced for roughly February 2021 on ArcNama.[6]

Information

Dark War's story will be a prologue to BlazBlue.[5] It will have branching choices similar to those of the XBlaze series, featuring a single main story with branching sub-stories. The short stories will feature characters whose stories were cut or could not fit into the main series, with Mori mentioning Hazama, Platinum and their relationship to Bell, Bullet, Hibiki, Meifang, Houichiro Hazuki, and characters that he personally would like to spend time writing about.[7]

Gameplay will include teams and equipment, and combos will form a major part of the gameplay.[5]

The BlazBlue: Central Fiction Official Setting Material Collection (pp.269-271) has this description for Dark War as an upcoming BlazBlue-related product:

BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War

The BlazBlue series' first smartphone RPG. Centering around the heroine Ciel, a new series opens up. Become acquaintances with characters from the series up until now, including [those] from the novels and comics, and make a party with those whom you like. (Release planned for 2018)
