Blazblue Title in the Works for Nintendo Switch

Arc System Works confirmed that a Blazblue title, of some kind, is in development for Nintendo Switch. One would assume and hope the Switch title is the latest fighting game iteration, Blazblue: Central Fiction (released on PS3/PS4 back in November 2016), but Arc System Works hasn't provided any specifics. Note that there have been several Blazblue spin-offs on mobile platforms which aren't fighting games... so anything's possible.
