European gamers with the PAL version of BlazBlue will be able to fight against players from North America and Japan. This feature isn’t in the current version of BlazBlue so Arc System Works is giving everyone an online update.
A patch scheduled for release on January 21 (that’s this Thursday) includes European version connectivity, fixes some leaderboard issues, addresses a USB keyboard bug (Xbox 360 only), and adds downloadable content.
Unlimited versions of Jin, Noel, Taokaka, Iron Tager, Litchi, Arakune, Bang Shishigami, and Carl will be available for 500 yen / 400 Microsoft Points. You don’t have to buy each one, the new unlimited characters come in a bundle. A four character color pack with a European countries or American Comics motifs cost 200 yen / 160 Microsoft Points a piece. Arc System Works also has complete packs with colors for all twelve characters at 500 yen / 480 Microsoft Points each.
Basically, all of the extra content in the still unreleased PAL version can be purchased as DLC.
