Battle Fantasia is a fighting game with a more traditional set of mechanics similar to Street Fighter 2 and 3 rather than the "new-school" sensibilities of Arc System Work's other fighting games. A Steam version of the game was released on July 7th, 2015.
The art style of the game is that of a Fantasy RPG setting with knights, pirates, rabbits, and more.
Tier lists are a way of communicating how strong the community thinks characters are relative to the rest of the roster. Lists can be used to understand the current metagame and how strong characters are assuming two players of exactly the same skill level. Tier lists do not decide the strength of the character, and do not decide who can or will win a given match. Opinions vary on exact placement of characters, and only reflect what is currently known about the characters.
The most relevant tier list currently is the 2014 tier list made by the Japanese community. The page to their tier list and match-up chart can be found here
Character are ordered within tiers, strongest being on the left, weakest being on the right
