A Large Helping Of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II Screens

By Ishaan . February 3, 2011 . 10:04am


BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II on the PSP and Nintendo 3DS brings a few new additions to the game. The first is the mysterious Abyss Mode, originally revealed when Continuum Shift II was announced for the PSP.


Abyss Mode is a dungeon mode where you fight your way down to the bottom of a structure called “Kagutsuchi.” Defeating foes in the Abyss Mode allows you to strengthen your character and any item you acquire in this mode is available for purchase in the item shop.


Continuum Shift II also increases the number of stories in the game from 17 to 19, with the two new original scenarios being penned by producer, Toshimichi Mori.


The screenshots posted here are from the PSP version of the game. No footage of the 3DS version of Continuum Shift II has been shown off yet, so there’s no telling if it looks any different. Additionally, there’s been no mention of online play so far. Both the Nintendo 3DS and PSP versions are priced at 5,229 yen.

    I picked up the home console version of CS yesterday, finally, and it’s excellent. A definite improvement on the first, even if there’s no analog stick specials anymore (which makes it harder for me to spam specials like Ice Car ;P). Anything that improves on that formula can only be good, especially with more plot, so I say, bring it on! :D

    • YO! WANNA FIGHT ME!? I imagine and hope both psp or 3DS version will have networkz battle…

      • Yui

        I would totally fight you, but I only have the PS3 version. :(

        EDIT: Also, I’m terrible, do you mind? (I have a mic, but I don’t use it, so you don’t have to worry about that. ;P)

        • Rofl, i should get ps3 ver too then, and no, i dont mind xD, you can add me in psn if you want anyway my ID is “LosRoki” (didnt choose it T_T, i wanted to put WildArms)

          • Mmmm, I’ve been wanting your PSN for a while. Add me!


          • Yui

            Good sir, I will add you as soon as I next have access to PSN! I am Sir_Lawlzer (I was 15, forgive me ;_;) and I look forward to repeatedly harassing you whenever you sign on. :D

            And yeah, get it! Or Calamity Trigger. I think those are the only properly multiplayer PS3 games I have, besides MGS4’s MGO and Resistance. :D

      • Lemme finish an arcade stick using a Sixaxis as the PCB and i’ll be down for this. >:3

        I still wish there were some way to hook up two controllers to a PSPGo. It’d be amazing to carry around my Go, a couple arcade sticks, and the TV out cables to have a portable BlazBlue (/ Darkstalkers / Street Fighter Alpha 3) station wherever i go. :D

        Well, a station as long as there was a PS3 halfway nearby. ,_,

    • Darkrise

      Yeah, but still, once you do the combos without the anolog stick, it just feels great.

      • Yui

        I’m working on it right now, but beginner mode makes it easier. :D

        • Darkrise

          I find beginner mode a bit screwed up. =/ Everything just confuses the controls I’m use to. I couldn’t even do distortions.

          • Yui

            Same, but I COULD mash buttons to form combos that would get me through matches in the story mode. So I was happy. XD

  • Darkrise

    2 new stories added. Abyss mode. Put those together and you have my money.

    Oh, and Platinum is very much welcomed. Still waiting on the console release…

  • Zal_Yagun

    Wait 2 more stories? Who’s not getting one?

    • PurpleDoom

      Yeah, I was wondering the same thing… if there’s only two new stories, then two characters won’t get one. I’m pretty sure one of the characters not getting one is Mu, due to the brief period of her existence, but the other one is a mystery.

      • Tropxe

        Valk not getting one could make sense since he’s supposed to always be at Rachel’s side anyway. Platinum not getting one could make sense in order to keep her mysterious and powerful seeming. A story mode could give too much away and make her seem too human – kind of like if there was a cutscene in Street Fighter of M. Bison putting his underwear into the wash and ironing his shirt. It’s best to just keep these characters distant and aloof.

    • Ladius

      Valkenhayn, I imagine.

  • mikanko

    I just hope console versions get the patch at around the same time. Rachel and Tsubaki buffs are very very welcome.

  • Guest

    Ok cool but gimme a port of Hokuto no Ken and Groove on Fight to PSN

  • PrinceHeir

    hopefully we get the console versions around June :)

    i want to play all DLC character with their story too you know? :D

    • Darkrise

      Well we’re suppose to get it in spring. The patch alongside Platinum i mean. Before NA was suppose to get her during December but thnx to the whole Valkenhayn 360 bug, delays were made…

      • Guh, I hope EU doesn’t get shafted AGAIN. Seriously

  • Abyss mode sounds fun and more plot is welcomed as BlazBlue’s story is very intruging.
