Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe is out March 15th

Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe is out March 15th

I have a public service announcement for all of you fighting fans out there:

Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe will be arriving on PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store, and on PC via  Steam this week: March, 15th!

You can be forgiven if you’re not immediately familiar with the Chaos Code series – neither was I.

Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe is ready to rumble this week!

Chaos Code is a 2D, “anime-style” fighting game that centers around the battle for control of Chaotics, a limitless and mysterious new form of energy developed by Professor Arthur Tesla. In an attempt to fully understand and harness the power of Chaotics, Tesla vanishes from society and pens an instructional tome called the Chaos Code. Word gets out about the code’s existence and naturally, everyone wants to get their grubby hands on it. Tesla, ever the enterprising capitalist, decides to award a huge cash prize for whomever is able to get a hold of the Chaos Code, hence the fighting tournament. (I guess they don’t have book publishers in the future?)

Now that the superfluous info is out of the way, here’s what you really need to know.

Developed by a little-known Japanese company, FK Digital, Chaos Code made its first appearance in Japanese arcades in 2011. The game made the Asian PSN Store rounds about a year later, and an English version was eventually produced for the PlayStation 3 in 2013.

So yeah, it was well off my radar too.

Chaos Code’s game play looks pretty intriguing though, with the requisite Street Fighter-esque specials and a combo system capable of chaining together a number of normal attacks into what it calls a “Chaos Combo.” Players can further customize their chosen character by selecting a combination of special and super moves that they can utilize in battle.

Pair all of this with a vibrant art-style, and you have a fighter that could be well worth a look before May’s Injustice 2 and June’s Tekken 7.

Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe is being published by ARC System Works, and will digitally retail for $19.99
