Move Aside BlazBlue, This PS4 and Vita Fighter Is Stranger Than You

An unfortunate episode involving blades
Arc System Works’ weird and wonderful BlazBlue may want to watch its back, as upcoming PlayStation 4 and Vita title The Chainsaw Incident looks to be gunning for its crazy crown. Quietly announced as part of a beautifully animated teaser trailer last week, the Origo Games and Crazy Piranha collaboration is reportedly in the early stages of development – and is already looking absolutely stunning.
While details are somewhat scarce, the full title will supposedly boast 26 characters when it deploys at an undetermined date. So far, the firm’s shown off Milda and Massacre, the latter of which wields a chainsaw about the same size as his Quasimodo-esque frame. Other combatants include Lenore, a pink haired rocker with a razor clawed raven as her aide. According to the title’s Facebook page, more reveals are set for February.
Despite purportedly being a PlayStation exclusive for the time being, the developer’s planning a Kickstarter campaign to enable the game’s completion. While you wait to donate your cash towards the title’s development, though, check out the dark debut footage embedded below. Is this horror-themed brawler prompting you to quake with excitement, or are you indifferent to the idea of a new challenger entering the ring?
