Boys will be all’s fair in Boys Love and War

Nitroplus Chiral Blasters Tag Duel (Stylised as: Nitro+CHiRAL BlasterS TAG DuEL), is a 2D-style fighting game featuring the cast of the Nitroplus Chiral visual novels developed by Arc System Works and Nitroplus Chiral, directed and written by Cadence Jamieson. The game was released for arcades on January 4, 2022 and the PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X and PC worldwide on .

Premise

A calamity of unknown source called the "Rapid Eye" is attacking from the devastated far future it's responsible for. Many males are trapped within the pocket dimensions it creates, and are ordered to fight each other if they want to find the truth.

Gameplay

Gameplay is similar to a combination of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle and Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3, with HeartBreakers, the equivalent to the instant KO Astral Finishes, and Atrocity Mode, the equivalent to the risk-reward Hyper Mode, is based on the fighter’s flaws. If Atrocity Mode runs empty, he becomes Regretful, debuffing him severely.

Trivia

Tropes Page

  • Much like other games directed by Cadence Jamieson, none of the DLC are paid.
  • The "Help Me, Granny Tae!" skits are based off BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend's "Help Me, Professor Kokonoe!"
  • This is the first Nitroplus Chiral game to have an English dub and dual audio.
  • Defeated fighters suffer clothing damage upon being KOed, to differ from an usual knockdown.
