NetEase Games Establishes Studio Flare, Development Led by BlazBlue Creator Toshimichi Mori

    Mori's next endeavor is made clear.

    NetEase Games announced the establishment of Studio Flare, a Tokyo-based game development studio led by former Marvelous executive vice president Toshinori Aoki and BlazBlue creator Toshimichi Mori. This is Mori’s first endeavor since leaving Arc System Works this past September.

    Aoki serves as president and CEO of Studio Flare, while game development is led by Mori as producer and executive vice president. Studio Flare’s first game has not been announced, but the studio is currently hiring talent for development of the new project. Open positions at the studio include 2D artists, 2D background artists, 3D artists, and server and infrastructure engineers. More details may be found at the company’s official website (Thanks, Gematsu).

    The post-Mori era of BlazBlue had already begun with the announcement of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle ports for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Windows. An open beta test will be held on March 2 on all three Microsoft platforms. Additionally, side-scrolling action game BlazBlue: Entropy Effect is in development by 91Act for PC via Steam.

    Lastly, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is available now for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
