New 2D Fighter “Blazing Strike” Coming to Switch, PS4, PS5, and Steam PC

Publisher Aksys Games recently announced Blazing Strike, an all-new 2D fighting game coming in spring 2022 to Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, and Steam PC.

Developed by RareBreed Makes Games, Blazing Strike is hoping to recapture the greatness of 90s arcade fighters. Here is the official breakdown of Blazing Strike from Aksys, followed by some screenshots of the game.

Inspired by classic arcade fighting game series from industry greats such as Capcom and SNK, Blazing Strike evokes the excitement and nostalgia of 2D pixel art genre pioneers while incorporating a unique games system with modern mechanics.

Blazing Strike features a four-button system with six normal attacks: light, medium and heavy punches and kicks, as well as three defense moves: block, guard and parry. A Rush Trigger enables fighters to execute fast-paced attacks and movements, but using it will slowly drain the Rush Meter, sending the character into a temporary groggy state. This allows players to execute exciting combos while having to manage the Rush Meter.

The game will include three play modes: Story Mode, Arcade Mode, and VS Mode, with training, sparring, and online match via Persona AI, and online play powered by GGPO.
