Arc System Works’ adenture game Xblaze is due on PlayStation 3 and Vita in Japan this July, according to Famitsu.

The title was announced in early 2012 and shown at the Tokyo Game Show later that year. Now word on localisation, but the team’s BlazBlue games have done fairly well internationally, so there’s hope.

Arc System Works is planning a new fighting game for PS4. This is according to a Shoryuken translation of a Dengeki interview with BlazBlue producer Toshimichi Mori and reported by Joystiq. Shew. Here’s the quote: “We can’t give you a definite title yet, but we want to make one. We started creating BlazBlue around the time of the PS3 release, so we want to make a game for PS4 when the system releases. Creating new things at the turning point of time is who Arc System Works is, so we would like to take it on,” said Mori. There’s some hope for fans, then.
