Aksys Games announced over the weekend that BlazBlue: Central Fiction is releasing in early November 2016 in North America for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, through both retail and digital stores. On Twitter, Aksys added, “How early is early?? 1st week of November 2D brawlers~,” so November 1 is a good bet.

North America’s also getting a Limited Edition that includes a figure, soundtrack, and more.
