Aksys Games is hosting BlazBlue Revolution, the world's largest BlazBlue tournament, early next year in Japan, and it wants the best three-person team from the United States to be there, enough to offer them full airfare to Japan, complimentary hotel stay and a special monetary prize exclusive to the U.S. team if it wins. The U.S. tournament will be Feb. 25 in southern California, with the finals in Japan on March 24.
The BlazBlue Revolution prize is still "to be announced," but if the U.S. wins it will definitely get that special bonus prize -- emphasis on if. With all this hype to get a U.S. team to a Japanese tournament for a Japanese game, we think this may be a clever ploy to show us yanks just how terrible we truly are at motherland fighting games. We try, Japan. We try. If you're brave enough to compete (or if you want a free trip to Japan), read the details below and check the BlazBlue Revolution site on Dec. 17 for more information.
