Auro Stigmata is a 2-D fighting game created by Arc System Works and Ignition Entertainment. Character sprites and graphics were done by Toshimichi Mori.
The game allows you to play on four modes: Versus, Arcade Story, Story Mode, and Time Attack. Each has the player select one of 25 playable characters. All fighting mechanics are borrowed from BlazBlue... On top of that, each character has his/her own special attack known as "Ultimate Finish", which allows you to string together combos and then press a button without the aid of "mashing anything". Also, each character has their own Story Mode, upon which they go through eight stages against another character, leading up to fight the final boss afterwards. It also has the option for you to switch from English voices to Japanese voices, much like Street Fighter IV and King of Fighters XII. Dialogue between the two battling characters (opposed from the language switching) is also present in the games.
List of Characters
Hannah Zakuro - Voiced by Satomi Akesaka in Japanese, and Kari Wahlgren in English. She is the main female protagonist, who is 15 years old in the game.
