Fans of outrageous sprites may be excited to learn that Arc System Works is hoping to create a brand new fighting game franchise for the PlayStation 4. According to Shoryuken’s translation of Dengeki’s interview with BlazBlue series producer Toshimichi Mori, the company has nothing to show yet, but is itching to start production on something fresh for the impending hardware.

"We can't give you a definite title yet, but we want to make one," he said. "We actually made Guilty Gear targeting the Dreamcast, and we started creating BlazBlue around the time of the PS3 release, so we want to make a game for PS4 when the system releases. Creating new things at the turning point of time is who Arc System Works is, so we would like to take it on."

In addition to multiple BlazBlue titles, Arc System Works also recently worked on Persona 4 Arena, a 2D brawler featuring the characters from Atlus’ popular RPG series. We’d love to see the Japanese studio put something together for the PS4 – if only to see what the team can achieve with 8GB GDDR5 RAM.
