BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is a fighting game developed by Arc System Works. The game's name is a portmanteau of "blaze" and "blue," with the "z" sound omitted in the Japanese pronunciation, rendering it similar to the word "brave" in pronunciation, and granting it that additional meaning. The game is currently released for the Taito Type X2 arcade system board, with a 16:9 ratio and 768p resolution. It was released on November 19, 2008 in Japan and November 20, 2008 in the United States.
It was released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 home consoles on June 25, 2009 in Japan. A European release of the game is scheduled for the first quarter of 2010, without the Calamity Trigger subtitle. A port for the PlayStation Portable, titled BlazBlue Portable, has been announced for a February 2010 release in Japan. A sequel featuring new content and characters, titled BlazBlue: Continuum Shift has also been announced, with planned arcade, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 releases.
