During EVO 2022, Aksys Games and RareBreed Makes Games announced Blazing Strike has been delayed to Spring 2023 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam.
Blazing Strike features GGPO rollback netcode, a solution found in multiple fighting games like The King of Fighters XV and Melty Blood: Type Lumina. Samurai Shodown, another fighting game by SNK, receives GGPO rollback netcode in Spring 2023 through a free update.
“It’s gut-wrenching to admit but Blazing Strike’s release date has been moved back to Spring 2023,” said developer RareBreed Makes Games via Twitter. “However this delay will help polish the game to ensure the best game experience possible (maybe with crossplay), so I really hope you guys stick around a little longer.”
