The spiritual successor to X-Blades, Gaijin Entertainment’s Blades of Time still features the deadly blond bombshell Ayumi, but you’d be forgiven for thinking there was no connection at all. Gone are the cel-shaded graphics in favor of something more realistically flavored as Ayumi finds herself trapped on a mysterious and deadly island.
The titular Blades of Time will enable Ayumi to rewind time and create a clone of herself who performs the last actions she performed before the rewind. The game boasts over 40 sets of abilities to unlock, Chaos and Order magic and will feature large beautifully crafted areas. There is even a co-op campaign mode on offer here as Ayumi uses all her formidable abilities to escape the island and maybe leave it a little more wealthy.
Here’s the newest launch trailer below. Blades of Time hits stores on March 6th in North America and March 8th in Japan at a cool $39.99.
