BlazBlue Calamity Trigger is a new fighting game for PS3 and Xbox 360 set to be released in June, 2009. The makers of this new game are the same as the ones that are behind the Guilty Gear series. I loved those series and based on snippets of BlazBlue Calamity Trigger, I think I’ll love this new game too. The new game features a guard meter that that is used as shield from the amunitions of your opponents. The more you used it, the more that the guard meter will be depleted. When the guard meter turns 0 that would be that end. So, while fighting, you shouldn’t use the shield more than you should. If you don’t use it for a while, it will be recharged. BlazBlue Calamity Trigger is set in a futuristic setting. You’re supposed to defend the world from extinction because it was controlled by different sorts of bad characters.
One more thing that I love about this new fighting video game is the soundtrack. The composer of the soundtrack is Ishiwatari, the same composer for the Guilty Gear XX OST. I heard that they have already released the soundtrack of BlazBlue and I can’t wait to grab my own copy. The only downside that I noticed with this is that it features only 12 characters. I don’t know if the story will be as rich as it precedessors. Although you can still choose the character that you want and the fighting style that you’re comfortable with, but there are just too few choices.
