I was just informed that (thanks cj_iwakura and Lion!) BlazBlue: Central Fiction´s dub “might” be quietly killed off by Arc System Works (the game was released in the Japanese Arcades last year in November). And from what I´ve seen so far, it leans more towards being the truth than anything else. As neither Arc System Works, Aksys Games (Aksys once handled BlazBlue´s overseas localizations, but not anymore) nor Strangely Compelling (SC will handle the localization of “BlazBlue: Central Fiction” in the West) wants to comment on the matter (I will try to reach out to ACW for an answer myself).
I truly hope that this isn´t the case though. As it would be a great disappointment for the “BlazBlue” fanbase in the West, and since “BlazBlue: Central Fiction” is set for a release on the 6th of October in Japan (PS3 and PS4). The time is running short for a potential Western dub project (BB:CF is said to be released this Fall in the West). Nevertheless, I will do my very best to find out if “BlazBlue: Central Fiction” will get a Western dub or not.
