BlazBlue Calamity Trigger Standard Edition released in July 2009, sparking a nationwide fever over this complex and entertaining 2D fighting series. Now, with over 800,000 copies sold of the BlazBlue series in the U.S. alone and 1.7 million worldwide, the BlazBlue phenomenon has taken the world by storm! In conjunction with the 3rd Anniversary U.S. release of BlazBlue, Aksys Games is hosting a variety of celebratory events throughout the rest of the year.

As a thank you to our fans, Aksys Games will be hosting three contests from August through October to celebrate the 3rd Anniversary of BlazBlue’s U.S. debut. Fans will get a chance to win exclusive content including a “Jin Dakimakura,” signed illustrations by the Arc System Works’ BlazBlue team and an exclusive 3rd Anniversary BlazBlue banner to hang proudly on their wall!
