Toshimichi Mori wants to make Blazblue 3 in 2012

Straight out of an exclusive interview with Japanese gaming magazine Gemaga, when asked what his goals for 2012 are, Blazblue producer Toshimichi Mori responded that he wants to make Blazblue 3.

This is a pretty big thing because it's not another subtitled update, but rather the next full blown sequel. As someone who follows these games not just for the fighting mechanics but the story as well, this is awesome news. I was concerned that Mori would be dragging out the spinoff novels and quasi-sequels. Continuum Shift Extend actually has a ton of new content from what I've played thus far, but I really want to see the next big step.

Immediately after revealing his desire to make the next game, Mori added that he wants to make an anime as well. While it seems he's half joking and half serious, he then went on to request that studios please contact him. I remember the first time I cleared Calamity Trigger's story mode, I found myself wishing that a studio would pick up the franchise. I think it'd work fantastically in animated form. A quick bit of a trivia that some of you might not be aware of, but Extend's upgraded Calamity Trigger story mode was worked on by visual novel studio Nitro Plus. Something for you VN lovers to look out for.

Blazblue: Continuum Shift Extend will be launching with the Playstation Vita in North America come this February.
