A teaser site from Guilty Gear and BlazBlue developer Arc System has appeared that should cause much more of a stir that readily meets the eye. A stereotypical anime chick colored in red and black fills the page, overlaid with a bit of writing and a title and date. "BRCS", which also happens to be the page URL, is quite clearly a teaser at the game's title. 4/23/2014 implies the date of announcement. Just 7 days left.
As for the passage of text, well, it's a close quotation of Friedric Nietzsche without context, but we can probably assume it's mean to convey some sort of gothic mood. Evil! The Abyss! How ominous:
"She who fights with monsters might take care lest she thereby become a monster. And if you gaze into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you."
The ridiculousness of it all starts to come together with the realization of what franchise BRCS is associated with: BloodRayne. Dear video games, it's true. BloodRayne is back. Not only does generic anime chick resemble BloodRayne, as well as the red and black gothic look channel that game's attitude, but the symbol on the chick's necklace is none other than BloodRayne's.
Let's not take the low road and talk about how unfortunate it is that BloodRayne, of all franchises, is getting brought back to life. Let's instead focus on how Arc System Works, developer of Japanese fighting games like Guilty Gear and BlazBlue, is now developing a BloodRayne game. What is even going on. We'll find out what BRCS really is in a week.
