Arc System Works, the popular developers behind Guilty Gear and BlazBlue, have just launched a new teaser site for an upcoming game. The countdown, superimposed with the initials BRCS, indicates 7 days until the reveal and features an anime-esque artwork showcasing a busty, leather-clad heroine with a dagger of sorts. She also happens to feature prominently the symbol seen in another series, BloodRayne.
In addition is a play on Nietzsche’s famous quote: “She who fights monsters might take care lest she become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”
The symbol seen on the character portrait’s pendant and dagger is the same as the logo from the classic, busty vampire game BloodRayne, and the aesthetic similarities of the teased character and Rayne are quite similar. If this is true this wouldn’t be the first time Arc System Works has worked on an existing franchise having made a Contra game with Hard Corps: Uprising.
We have 7 days until the full reveal so until then here’s the link to the teaser site: http://www.arcsystemworks.jp/brcs/
