From the creators of the Guilty Gear series, Arc System Works, comes a new 2D fighter called Battle Fantasia, containing a “unique cast of fantasy-inspired characters, alongside a storyline and script that stays true to its Japanese heritage and manga roots.” One of the characters is a bunny wizard.
One of the features of the game is its RPG-like system. Not only will you be able to choose from 12 characters depending on which you enjoy playing most, you’ll have to think about their size as well. Smaller characters have less health, but are fast on their feet. Bigger characters, however, are slow to move but have more hit-points than the smaller variety of fighters. There will also be a story mode of sorts, to unlock new costumes and artwork, while the ubiquitous online and head-to-head multiplayer modes will be available.
Battle Fantasia is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 early next year.
