Sega is bringing its Shining series arcade fighting game entitled Blade Arcus from Shining to PlayStation home consoles, releasing this November in Japan!
Blade Arcus from Shining EX is said to have a very dense story that revolves around the two protagonists, Ryuga and Pairon. While they will be the focus of the story expect to also see many of your favorite characters from the Shining series weaved throughout, as well as the possibility of new Shining characters being added specifically for the console release!
The actual combat and gameplay during battles utilizes tag-based mechanics, where a player selects a primary character as well as a secondary character. Players can only switch between the two different characters during rounds, but can also call on their partner for help using 'Link Attacks'.

A good fighting game. It hasn't online mode, but if you want to play local with friends, it is not an important issue.
All the extras in this edition were great to have. The fighters look well detailed but the lack of online is a letdown for me
Très bon jeu, le seul défaut, pas d'online, mais c'est pas un défaut assez importante comme pour ne pas lui donner 5 étoiles ;)
Overall a nice game but it is getting killed a bit by not having any online features, still good for some offline combo smashing.
It is a very fun fighting game.
