This interview was featured in a Dengeki Online article covering a live event celebrating the BlazBlue series' 10th anniversary hosted by Arc System Works in collaboration with Ikebukuro Theater x Cafe & Dining "STORIA". The interview covers some hints at future plans for the BlazBlue series, including a soundtrack release for Susano'o and Terumi's songs and the possibility of Taro Sasaga'e being voiced. The complete article gives a summary of the panels given at the event, including a summary of each of the games in the C-series as well as the recently released spin-off BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, and ends with a transcript of some brief questions directed at Mori Toshimichi and the hosts in general. UEDA Kana (voice of Rachel Alucard) was present as a guest.
For BlazBlue's 10-year anniversary, Mori-P and UEDA Kana take a look back. New 'Dark War' info as well!?

The last corner is the development team's free talk. Answering attendee's questions one answer at a time, they deepened their connections with their audience. And what would you know, during this time, Mori-san let slip some information about 'BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War'!
Although they let us see some images of content currently under development, it was only for a brief moment so there was no time to understand it...![T/N 1] Listening to Mori-san and the others talk, it seemed like the number of characters has been slightly changed since the previous highest number[T/N 2]. Since continuing at this pace will leave us half-dead [in suspense], let us quickly move on to the news! By the way, these are the questions sent by the attendees.
Have you settled on a voice [actor] for Taro Sasagae?
We have. Currently, we're still in the stage of making an offer. Please look forward to it! I won't say where it will lead just yet though!
Will any official events be held this time?[T/N 3]
There will be! As we've said before, we don't intend to hold a 1-on-1 tournament, but please do look forward to it. Of course, we're thinking about an event for BBTAG as well.
I want to see an anime...!
We also want to make one...! We will devote ourselves to working hard so we can make one...!
When will a soundtrack including Terumi and Susano'o's songs be released?
It's properly in the works, so wait a bit longer!
Mori-san answered questions from the attendees about the in-development pictures of 'BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War.'[T/N 1] Afterwards, a commemorative photo was taken with all the attendees, and the event ended in high spirits!
- No pictures of the BBDW WIPs were included in this article
- Possibly local to DW, I don't think they're referring to CF or TAG
- What "this time" refers to isn't clear
