Toshimichi Mori

A true creator and designer at heart, Mori has been involved with making games for as long as he can remember. (But probably sometime during college). Having joined the industry, he worked closely with Guilty Gear creator Daisuke Ishiwatari — the duo has since made it their mission to raise the status quo of the 2D fighting genre. In 2008, success came Mori’s way in the form of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, whose dazzling HD graphics shocked the world. He captured not only the existing fighting game community, but video game and anime fans at large.

His success doesn’t stop at video games, either. Over the years, BlazBlue has been reincarnated through various media, including anime, novels and comics. More recently, he takes us a step deeper into this world with BlazBlue’s sister franchise, XBlaze.
