Mailbag

  • Nobafan says “I saw the plush you have been asking us if we’d buy and it looks pretty funny. Anyway I was wondering if there were any more Astral Finish sneak peeks coming for say Taokaka or Carl Clover(Cause we all know his must be the best since he is so hard to win with). Also what do you think Jake Hunter, if he was real, beat Bit Trip beat in a single sitting?”
  • The Pretender says “Hey guys, any chance you could bring one of the BlazBlue launch party events over here to the East Coast? I know Gail and Harry saw how hardcore BEAST COAST players can be, and we’d love to get the same love those Cali guys are getting.”
    • If you fly us out, we’ll give you one!
