Enjoy the character's individual stories while fighting your way through the 10 computer opponents.
In Arcade Mode (アーケードモード Ākēdo Mōdo), the player must fight through a set of 10 computer-controlled opponents, with the final boss being in his/her unlimited form. Each characters Arcade Mode uncovers a little of their own story in the BlazBlue universe. If another controller is attached to the console, the player on Arcade Mode can be challenged by another player in the middle of the current fight. Arcade Mode can also be played while waiting for a match in Online play. If someone connects to the session, the player will be sent to the character selection screen. When the match is over, the players will return to Arcade game on the character they left off at.
