GET HYPE - GET NAZI - BLITZ HEIL - PUNCH SOME JEWS
What is it?
Akatsuki Blitzkampf started as a PC doujin fighter and is as of February 28th, 2008, an official arcade game.
Yo, I don’t wanna play some faggot animu doujin fighter.
Try clicking the link above. It’s not like Arcana or Melty at all. This game plays like a mix between 3S and CvS2 with a bit of Guilty.
But I hate 3S/CvS2/life.
Yeah, you probably won’t like this game then.
Where can I get gameplay info?
The Akatsuki wiki on my site has detailed information about the PC version. There’s a fair number of tweaks and rebalances in the arcade version so it’s not wholly up to date. The information from the wiki was largely transcribed from the Japanese wikiby nekich, with some strats and info written by the players.
I don’t want to read all that shit. Gimme a quick summary.
The game plays similarly to standard Capcom fighters, and parries are commands with whiff recovery. There are more chain combos than 3S but not to the level of Guilty. Gameplay is largely based around spacing and footsies.
This is the layout: (yes, we are using faggot number notation)
7 8 9
4 5 6 A B C
1 2 3
A = light attack
B = medium attack
C = heavy attack
A+B + direction = throw
A+B = tech throw
B+C = reflect (parry)
A+B+C = Level 3 super
Specials are done with standard SF motions and A, B, or C. Supers are done with the motion plus B+C. When you have 3 levels, press A+B+C and you’ll do your level 3; no motion required.
What about gameplay footage?

There’s also Niconico videos of Blitz linked throughout the thread, keep an eye on Rithli’s posts for the latest from Japan.

This game looks fucking boring.
Blitz is supposed to have a very approachable system which is easy to learn with emphasis on spacing and mindgames. The game is more fun to play than to watch, and once you play the game you can watch matches and begin to appreciate the depth of the mental battle.
Why did you start a new thread?
Because woof doesn’t check SRK that often so he can’t update the old thread.
