Exceed Reveals BlazBlue Characters Coming to Season 5

Anticipation has been high for Level 99 Games' new season of Exceed, and now the official Season 5 theme has been revealed, and fans of the BlazBlue universe will be over the moon. That's right, the new season will bring in the BlazBlue characters to the hit Exceed franchise, and they will be a perfect fit for the game's addictive and easy to learn take on fighting games. Each character will bring their unique moveset and abilities into the Exceed experience, and there will be 16 characters in total available through 4 different boxes. Ragna, Jin, Noel, Hazama, Tager, Hakumen, Nu-13, and more will be available, though you can also grab the full bundle to get everyone, which you can find here.

It turns out that BlazBlue was one of the most requested properties by fans, and Level 99 CEO Brad Talton couldn't be more thrilled to finally bring the franchise to Exceed.

“Our mission at Level 99 Games is to create a meaningful gameplay experience that translates into fostering relationships between both teammates and opponents, as well as with the characters they choose to go to battle with,” says Brad Talton, CEO of Level 99 Games. “The addition of BlazBlue to our current line-up of Exceed Fighting Card System was a thoughtful decision we made after evaluating the current Exceed landscape, and assessing which characters and universes we felt would contribute the most to the overall gameplay experience. One of the most-requested properties by our fans, the decision was that BlazBlue was a perfect fit.”
