The Next Chaos Code Game

During a Twitch stream, developer FK Digital revealed a new Chaos Code game. Currently being called The Next Chaos Code, the upcoming fighter was shown in a brief clip. Several characters are shown during the video including Vein, Kagari, Rui, Bravo, Helmes, Ray, Celia, Celia II Kai, Cait & Sith, Cerberus, Gou, and a mysterious unnamed character. Unlike Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe, which released on PlayStation 4 earlier this year, this fighter sports a 3D art style.

Check out the first gameplay footage of The Next Chaos Code below:

If you’re interested in more information on the fighting game’s PlayStation 4 predecessor, check out our Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe review. Here’s a snippet of what reviewer Blake Grundman had to say in his review:

As much as I enjoyed playing New Sign of Catastrophe, it still has its fair share of shortcomings. For one, the visuals, though impressive for the time it was originally released, do tend to look a bit dated on the PS4. I don’t know what I was expecting to see that would be different from the prior installments, but if you have already bought the game on PS3, you’re probably not going to see anything that screams out, “next generation console.” Another downfall is the lack of any substantial tutorials. I realize that there are already numerous gameplay modes available, but this seems like the kind of inclusion that would have made revisiting the game more worthwhile for pre-existing fans. One last thing to note is that any online match I was able to start was never finished. Maybe this is a byproduct of poor timing on my part, but literally every single online match I played ended up dropping before the battle concluded. It’s hard to say if this is a result of net code issues, but it is at least worth mentioning if you are a hardcore ranked match fan.

Despite fighting games feeling somewhat stagnant for quite some time, somehow a game from 2011 has managed to feel like something new and fresh. While it is never going to have the balance or fan popularity of other frontrunners in the genre, Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe, is a perfectly functional brawler that is approachable for the casual audience and has enough meat to appeal to the hardcore. It isn’t going to set the world on fire or re-define a genre, but it certainly knows how to leave an impression. Animatronic ta-tas tend to do that.

We’ll have more information on The Next Chaos Code game as it becomes available.
