Aksys Games has announced BlazBlue Revolution, the largest 3v3 tournament for the Arc System Works fighter series to date. The finals will be held in Japan in March 2012, and Aksys will supply airfares and accommodation to the winning trio of the US arm – plus a special bonus if by some twist of fate, they beat their Japanese rivals. Haaaa. US qualifiers will play out in Southern California, and more details will be available through the event’s website on December 17.
BlazBlue is a series of closely-interlinked fighters with an emphasis on technical combos, much like spiritual precursor Guilty Gear. It boasts two core entries, one spin off, plus portable versions and revisions.

Its been revealed that BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger will get a PC release next year in France, as well as an already announced PS3/360 European release.
So far it seems only France is mentioned, not Europe as a whole.
It seems that for any PC gamers looking for a fighter since SFIV may have another reason to hate the French. The first obviously was Thierry Henry.

Sure, oddly titled fighter Battle Fantasia has been pulverizing European PS3 owners since, like, the dawn of time, but now — finally — North American PS3 players can find out what a Battle Fantasia is too.
The game, which saw European retail release more than a year ago, is now slated to hit PSN this fall, according to Kotaku. Why? Project Lead Frank “Bo” deWindt II explained:
“The fans have been asking for it and we’re here to deliver. Thanks to the revival of the fighting genre this year there hasn’t been a better time to release such a fun and exciting fighter like Battle Fantasia on the PlayStation Network.”

Here. Guilty Gear 2: Overture will release exclusively for Xbox 360 in the US in Q3, publisher Aksys Games said today.
A departure for the one-on-one fighter, the game is instead a tactical action game.
“Guilty Gear 2: Overture retains a lot of elements that the fighting games are known for, so it’s cool to see how familiar moves like the Gun Flame make the transition to 3D,” said Michael Manzanares, project lead, Aksys Games.
No idea if this is going to make Europe.
