BlazBlue: Central Fiction, released in Japan as BlazBlue: Centralfiction, is a 2-D fighting video game developed by Arc System Works. It is the fourth game in the BlazBlue series and is set after the events of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma. It is also the final game with Ragna as the main protagonist. and serves as the conclusion of the Azure Saga that began in Calamity Trigger.
Aksys Games confirmed that Central Fiction will not be receiving an English dub, making it the only BlazBlue title that was not dubbed at launch. In wake of the news that Central Fiction would not be dubbed, fans created a Change.org petition requesting an English dub via DLC.
BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma Extend, there are additional changes and new mechanics. The Overdrive activation’s duration is now shown under the Burst Gauge in the form of a countdown timer (which counts seconds and split-seconds); The character portrait near the health bar shakes when taking damage; and each character’s emblem appears on their side when the phrase “The Wheel of Fate is Turning” shows at the start of the first Rebel. The new gameplay mechanics are: Exceed Accel, a special type of Distortion Drive, which is executed a same input as Overdrive activation by holding it during Overdrive activation, or pressing it, begins with the character performing a specific attack in their move-set, and once it connects the rest of the background shatters away into the Overdrive background effect when the attack is performed. It dishes large damage, but immediately ends Overdrive; and Active Flow, which acts as the opposite of Negative Penalty status. A character that fights offensively goes into an Active Flow, which boosts damage and recovery of the Burst Gauge. Active Flow also increases the damage of Exceed Accel (for some it may add extra effects and animations). When a character enters Active Flow, his/her emblem on the health bar becomes purple pink. The purple pink color itself is also shown surrounding the Overdrive Gauge, when a character is close to entering Active Flow. A character can only enter Active Flow once per round.
