BlazBlue Ready For Immediate Action

By Spencer . June 30, 2009 . 10:33am

Aksys is launching BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger in North America today. The high resolution 2D fighting game has a bonus story mode with English and Japanese voice acting that reveals “the hidden truth”.


BlazBlue is available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Given a choice, I’d go with the PlayStation 3 version since you can stream BlazBlue to a PSP via remote play. It’s such a cool feature and it isn’t even mentioned in the launch trailer.

    GAHHHHHHHHHHHH I want this game so bad now. Might have to cancel my Amazon order if a retail store has a copy near me after work.

      Wouldn’t you risk losing the preorder bonus? Or was that Gamestop only?

      Also, for anyone that’s able to try it, how’s the remote play like? How’s the lag? Remote viewing is a cool idea though if it’s capable of that.

        Preorder bonus is an artbook via GameStop’s online store. No matter where you preordered it or even buy it normally, you get an LE. Aksys hasn’t even shipped out any regular edition versions, all you can find for the full first shipment is LE, so no problems there!

  • Remote Play, really? Wow. I’m also curious about lag issues; my PS-One games suffer it pretty heavily if I move relatively far from my PS3 or my wireless router… depending if I’m using the internet or the PS3 itself as my connection.

    But who knows; maybe PS3 games are streamed… uh… differently? Either way, I’ll try it out after work. Game’s sitting in my car right now.

    Tao SOUNDS freaking great in japanese, but in english she sounds like just a normal girl

    Got it this morning. It’s not even frickin funny how utterly in love I am with this game…

    Gah, according to a friend of mine who works at an EBGames in Canada, it’s not arriving today. And with Canada Day tomorrow, that means I won’t get it until at least Thursday. ><

    But dang, Remote Play with no lag? That just blows my mind! Though, the "no lag" part probably means immediate local Remote Play, not via Internet or anything.

    I picked this up today, and it’s fantastic so far. Picked up the PS3 version for the PSP feature, but also because the bonus movie disc is a blu-ray. Even though its just tips and what not HD quality is HD and DVD quality is………well not.

    • QBasic

      The quality is laughable D:

      Like something straight out of a cheap commercial DVD burning program. Waste of Blu-Ray, man…

  • Advent

    I gotta say this is the best fighter ive ever played! I was the first one to get it at my Gamestop, I actually waited in the store for the truck to arrive.

    Perfect game, not a thing I would change about it.

  • Akirap

    Given a choice, also, I would prefer PS3 version due to the horrible Xbox360 controller. For SF4 was a torture.
