"She who fights monsters might take care..."

BlazBlue and Guilty Gear developer Arc System Works has launched a teaser website for a new game.


The website, which is titled “BRCS,” offers the following text: “She who fights with monsters might take care lest she thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”

Seven days remain on the countdown.

    It’s bloodrayne. I’d recognize those swords anywhere

    • Lara Croft

      Her swords…………… :-P

  • Vayne

    A game hunter style?

  • shogunknight

    Color me blood red interested

  • bloodiOS

    That’s Rayne, alright. Now, does she actually get her own game here or is this elaborate tease just going to end up with her being added into BlazBlue or Guilty Gear roster? (Sure hope not, that sounds stupid.)

    • usagi_san

      This. Never played the BB series or the BloodRayne titles on the PS2/Xbox either, but I would love to see her in her own game.

    • 武神水樹

      Probably getting her own game based off the description

      “She who fights with monsters might take care lest she thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”

      Doesn’t say much about GG or BB

    BloodRayne: Continuum Shift.

    • Sevyne

    • Elvick

      I’ll wait for BloodRayne: Continuum Shift EXTEND on the PS Vita then.

    • MrTakeba

      Dammit Sal, you just reminded me that I once paid like $20 for the four DLC characters in Continuum Shift.

  • Dark_N11

    I really don’t like her new anime look.

    • usagi_san

      I don’t know if you can call it her “new” look, more like a company’s adaptation of the character.

  • Aiddon

    ooooookay? Why exactly is this a thing? Never expected a quality studio like ASW to deal with a mediocre property like Bloodrayne. Then again, we could say the same thing when Wayforward had their crack at it.

  • Lara Croft

    Never thought I’d see a Japanese Developed blood rayne game. Glad to see I was wrong. To my knowledge, the series is not at all popular in Japan. So I’m really surprised to see this. Anyway I hope it at least comes out for the Vita.

  • Eder García

    Bloodrayne? ArcSys? that’s interesting…

  • new_tradition

    So BloodRayne is an action/adventure/hack n’ slash game? Has ASW done something like that before? I know 2D/3D fighters isn’t all they do, but it’s what I know them best for…

    • Sevyne

      Well they did do Hard Corps: Uprising. Pretty much a Contra game, but it did have a melee/blade oriented DLC character in it too.

      • new_tradition

        Oooooh, that looks cool. Thank you for the link ^^

        • ShadowFang

          They also did Guilty Gear 2, which wasn’t a fighting game. Instead it was a fully 3D hack-n-slash MOBA, before Lane-Pushers were even a genre.

          They’re a weird, old developer – like ‘Sega Master System’ old. They’ve done a lot. It’s fun to dive into their catalog:

      • 武神水樹

        That game is frickin hard

        • Sevyne


      • Skerj

        I love that game so much.

  • ShadowFang

    Okay, so as comments have pointed out, that’s clearly Bloodrayne. So we know what the BR stands for. Any guesses what the CS stands for? My money’s on Crimson Shadow.

    I was sort of disappointed by the last Bloodrayne game (Betrayal), so I’m hoping Arc System Works can do better. I also find it weird that, once again, a Wayforward game and an Arc System Works’ game is related. First Contra 4 and Hard Corps Uprising came out, now we’ve seen Bloodrayne Betrayal from Wayforward and some new Bloodrayne coming from Arc. I wonder if these two teams have ever met?

  • Elvick

    I enjoyed BloodRayne 2, though felt it dragged on. It’s one game that taught me that good games can be too long.

  • Skerj

    So another 2D BloodRayne after BloodRayne: Betrayal? Bought if so.

  • Bob Obb

    A cameo? I was hoping they’d do something new, not a fan of BB.

    As it turns out, this is BloodRayne: Betrayal localized for Japan:

    • z_merquise

      Meh. I’m so disappointed. Way to overhype something but I guess that’s nothing new from Japanese almost every game developers/publishers.
