BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Announced By Arc System Works

By Ishaan . August 5, 2012 . 3:43am

It turns out Persona 4: Arena isn’t the only fighting game Arc System Works have been tinkering away on. They’ve also been developing BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, which they announced today at their BlueFes 2012 event, Shoryuken.com reports.

 

While the BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma title has been confirmed by Arc System Works, other details come via a fan who was in attendance at BlueFes, so take these with a grain of salt.

 

Chrono Phantasma reportedly has three new characters, and the neutral poses for the series’ returning cast of characters have been redrawn. The older characters have also been given new costumes and moves. For example, Noel allegedly no longer wears a cap and now carries a different weapon.

 

No release date for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma has been announced yet.

  • Herok♞

    The news seems legit because bolverk was destroyed in CS so Noel needs a new weapon. So even the rumored stuff makes sense, and BB 3 I was about to get persona so that should hold me over until it releases. The only thing that makes me wonder is in the other post it has 3 unknowns becoming playable but no Kokonoe.

    I hope I get to see Lotte Carmine in this version plus I hope they change Arakune’s AH into a chaos dimension of somesort :)

    Where’s Jubei?

    New sprites. What is this I don’t even D: It’s really rare to hear a fighting game in the same continuity to have new sprites. Looks like you’ve been hard at work, Arc Sys. I’ll forgive your yearly iterations.

    • Jesse Thompson

      Don’t forget the days of Street Fighter 2 and how many releases they did! :D

    • Solomon_Kano

      Eh. This won’t be out for a bit anyway. You’ve got time.

  • http://strictlyapathy.comoj.com/ SoulArbiter

    Fantastic news! And three new characters, too! Keeping my eyes and ears open for anything to do with this. ASW looks like they’ve been hard at work to bring us this new instalment to the series.

  • Klaus00

    glad I didn’t buy CS:EX after all ( I felt left out kinda too when my friends play it) 
    can’t wait whats in store for my White Void

  • Gyro Zeppeli

    So glad me and my friends skipped Extend. This sounds mighty fine.

    • andref

       You guys are not the only ones, I don’t particularly cared for that game with mostly one character addition either but definitely looking forward to this and hopefully we may eventually get BB vs GG

    • AnimeRemix

      I still wanted to buy Extend even though I had Calamity Trigger and Continuum Shift… Now I’m feeling a bit glad that I haven’t bought it yet. :V

      • Jesse Thompson

        I buy at least 1 copy of each edition of BB that gets released.  Gotta support ‘um if you want more! (~.~)/  And I’m not big on fighters, but BB pulls me in and so excited for P4:A.

        • AnimeRemix

          Same. I’m not really big on fighters (actually, BB is pretty much the first fighter that really hooked me), and I’m excited for P4 Arena as well! =D

  • Jezzy

    “Azrael is a mid-aged muscular man who’s sort of a meathead, fighting is everything to him. Drive name is “The Terror”.
    Amane is a man that looks as beautiful as a goddess, fights with a plumage. Drive name is “Spiral”.
    Barret is a close-combat cool female mercenary with cleavage. At a
    glance her motions looks a bit like Makoto’s. Drive name is “Lockon”. ”

    Still no Kokonoe ._.

    • Jesse Thompson

      Barret?!  Why that name?!  Nooooo, cannot get image of FF7′s Barret with cleavage out of my head now, it’s so evil!

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Richard-Viet-Nguyen/100000070536507 Richard Viet Nguyen

         It’s actually Bullet….. if the trailer is to be believed…..

  • AnimeRemix

    Persona 4 Arena…now this?! Major HYPE!! =D

    It’s funny, but I was just recently talking about wanting the newest BlazBlue game to be announced soon, and BAM! /That luck for me is high XD

    Alright, anyways, 3 new characters? Sweet. Always good to have new characters added to the BB series. I also wonder how some characters costumes will look…*__* BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma here we come!!! ….. Next year!!!! =D

  • pothier.adrien

    Jubei, Kokonoe, and Phantom please ? That way we get the whole family ^^

  • Ayaka

    I read this about some hours ago and still excited for what we’ll see, the project surely has the word HYPE on it and I’m really, really looking forward to it.

    Only a bit sad note: I seriously hope they won’t do the same as Continuum Shift.

    Since I don’t run a huge-profit company (lol I wish) it’s a bit complicated to afford like 10 versions of the same game, expecially when half of them are a simple update… if that’s the case, I’m probably gonna wait for the Chrono Phantasma Extend release.

    P.S. – Thanks Arc for understanding that I need more Ragna in my life. :3

  • pothier.adrien

    Three crests revealed !

    The one on top actually makes me think of Saya…

    Edit : Wait, they actually seem to belong to newcomers Azrael, Barret/Bullet, and Amane.

  • Wagnaria

    Before I was hoping for a Phase 0/prequel game, but ofcourse a sequel is more better ^^   I hope this would be the real BB3.

      Let’s hope it’s a sequel.

    • z_merquise

      Bullet and Azrael looked so cool! Amane looked like a woman but the voice sound like a guy.

      So 2012 Winter. More likely, console version would be 2013.

      Thanks for the video!

      • MrKappa

        Loc test are starting in Japan tomorrow so maybe that 2012 winter is actually for consoles.
        Then again I’m inclined to agree that the console version does seem more likely to release in 2013 some time in the summer.

      BTW That Amane guy somehow tranformed Ragnas jacket away….what will happen if he used it to noel?

      • MrKappa

        You gotta watch that trailer like 50 more times like I’m doing but he actually turned him into a kid.
        Looks like his Astral, kind of like how Relius has a different one for every character.

        • XiaomuArisu

           Kids version of everyone…….Awesome!XD

    • neetyneety

      OMG, I forgot all about Jubei or any of the Six Heroes that I’ve been demanding as playable chars ever since Continuum Shift the moment I saw the new additions. Amane, Bullet and Azrael look so freakin’ AWESOME~!! Consider this SOLD, SOLD, SOLD ArcSys!

      Bullet looks fudging sick. This is gonna be awesome.

  • thaKingRocka

    Having just bought Extend two weeks ago, I am thoroughly inclined to rage. I bought Extend because everything was on the disk. If this has DLC, then I will ignore it, but it still bothers me that as soon as I buy the most current version, which only came out six months ago, they announce the next installment with three new characters. I know there will be some time before this version releases on consoles, but this announcement already makes Extend feel obsolete.

    • midgard229

      extend was always obsolete. it was just CS. its ur fault for waiting so long buddy.

      for people like me who have beaten the first CS game we want more already, and want something new. its been 2 years, so yeeeaaaaah. why should we have to wait? lol. the story needs to continue. and this sounds like a great change

      • thaKingRocka

        “Beaten the first CS game?” What does that mean? Do you mean that you’ve fully explored all of the story paths? Is that how you determine when you’re ready for another installment?

        I waited so long because they released CS too shortly after CT. Then, they started in with the DLC characters. I do not buy DLC characters or games that have DLC characters planned prior to release. The last BB I bought was CT. If CP’s only adding 3 characters, then it might as well be another CS installment. That’s not enough to warrant another new release even if Noel will be losing her cap with some new backgrounds.

        • midgard229

          your very mistaken.

          and yes Beat all story paths and got the true ending.

          CS is nothing but a gift to people who waited to buy the BB games. it included CT and CS and 1 new character along with the dlc.BBCS came out in arcades first. Makoto took 3 months to make and happened to be ready a month after release.

          each other character took months to make. valk took 3-4 months to make, and platina took another 4 months. besides balance and such its over 9000 frames to make one charaacter, thats 9000 drawings per character. 

          if you felt like waiting till the price dropped that was fine. its not like they were on disc or anything.

          and to say that BB:CP shud just be another CS is complete fail. the games story is always massive, taking over 40 hours to complete all paths and get full ending, and the story is actually great, especially for a fighter.

          you can do what you did again. wait 2 years then pick it up. the real fans will buy it anyway.

          New moves, new story, new characters, new backgrounds, new music, and not all the characters were even announced yet. they didnt even show saya yet. so yeah, just keep playing catch up. dont play fighting games anymore if you dont like it, because i rather have a 5 buck character dlc, then have to buy the whole game over again like SF hyper turbo editions did, or the 8 releases of guilty gear x2.

          screw that.

          • thaKingRocka

            You’re right. I was uninformed regarding the series. I ignored CS because I hadn’t felt like CT needed a sequel yet. I saw CS as an incremental upgrade to CT. Then, there were all those updates to CS and I didn’t follow them. When I did try to sort out which game was which in the genuine timeline, I was left with the fact that CS:E was the most recent release and it contained all of that DLC that I felt was incredibly overpriced. I think $8 was the original price when they announced Makoto, and I found that to be completely out of line with the pricing of a fighting game. That was when I put the series on ignore for the most part.

            The story means absolutely nothing to me. You’re right. I’m not a serious fan. The story is far too self-serious and long-winded for me to actually take it seriously. I’d take Zangief’s Cossack dance over any of the BB stories any day. That’s a matter of preference and priority.

            I do not measure a game’s value in time for any genre. I don’t care if it’s 4 hours or 40 hours. In fighting games, value comes in providing a solid, deep experience that will not splinter the community with DLC characters. That is the one truly grave misstep in fighting games. If they are afraid to release multiple retail versions of the game, then they are right. They should be. They should give plenty more time in between installments.

            From the perspective of someone following the game all along, I understand how easy it is to defend and to sympathize with the developer. However, from the perspective of someone who was looking to try out jumping back in the series by picking up the latest release, it is pretty lousy to find out within a week of buying the latest version that a new release is announced.

            I think all fighting games should take plenty of time between releases and they most certainly should not allow for characters to be DLC. I think they should save new characters for new games entirely, so that there is a notable increase in the roster to differentiate the game.

    • Herok♞

       If they hadn’t been doing persona I bet this would be the game that was coming out right now and besides we won’t get this for like another year so its not like Extend is going to die right away.

      • thaKingRocka

        If that’s the case, then Extend was a cash grab to make sure they had some money coming in during the first quarter of 2012. Lovely.

        As for the second part of your comment: “I know there will be some time before this version releases on
        consoles, but this announcement already makes Extend feel obsolete.”

        • midgard229

          extend was a cash grab? how? because it released CT, CS on one disc, added a new character, and had all the DLC for the new comers or people like u who wait for the game?

          yes its a waste of money for people who have CS, but not for people who didnt have the first 2 games or even the 2nd game.

          it was just a GOTY edition basically with out the GOTY title

        • Herok♞

           You could look at it that way as a cash grab or you could look at it as getting all the content on one disc with new stuff added. And if you believe having more then a year between installments makes the announcement of something obsolete that’s bad logic. If we use the more then a year logic makes something obsolete no one would ever buy a sports or cod game because they know a new one is coming out next year. seriously buying extend day one meant having 6 months before they announced this one and it probably won’t be out until at least this time next year. So you know until the new game is out it won’t be obsolete. The earliest we will even be able to play the new game is winter and that’s if you were to go to an arcade in japan.

    Where is Mu & Lambda….

    • Herok♞

       Lamda is kinda you know and Mu no longer exists but I hope they are still avalible in Versus mode even if they have no story or arcade.

      • midgard229

        veeeeery true……i seriously hope they are allowed to be played. tho it makes sense why they wouldnt be there but still

        • http://kanpekijan.blogspot.com/ KanpekiJan

          I do think NU-13 will be in the game, for the following reason (*SPOILERS*):

          I don’t know if it was in earlier versions of Continuum Shift, but at least in Extend Terumi and Relius found NU-13′s body within the cauldron. Along with the image from the trailer which can be seen above, I think we can assume that NU-13 will be in the game in some form.

    • Glenn De Boer

       *Spoiler Alert for when you haven’t played CS’s Story Mode*
      Lambda dies by Hazama’s hand and Mu is basically Noel’s Murakumo form of which Ragna snaps her out of so both of them cannot be in this game if it was then it would be a very wierd Continuity error if they were in there in the story..Especially since the whole Timeloop thing has probably been breached.
      In that respect we get some new characters who’s sides are currently unknown.

  • Tee Niitris

    Contrary to how most feel, I actually welcome a sequel to BlazBlue (even though my BB knowledge is rather limited).

    Although I’m a bit concerned; having three new characters again sounds suspicious. Also, ArcSys kind of gained a reputation for “milking” the series and may shy people away from giving it a chance. But altering the existing characters sprites and moves would definitely spice things up. In fact, if the older character’s altered designs in this new entry are that much different from their current forms, we could possibly see a larger character roster than first glance.

    Hopefully everything that was in Extend carries over into BB:CP (especially that convenient stylish mode). It it does, it will be the best in the series yet.

  • akeboshi

    I was about to buy Extend a couple days ago to kill time for P4A.
    Glad I stopped.

    • Daniel Morandi

       Me too man, I didn’t buy it but I was thinking in doing it.

  • Rasec46

    Still hadn’t a chance of having a blazblue game in my collection.
    I tried the game and i like it.
    Now i don’t know if i should wait or get me blazblue extend for my vita.

    • AnimeRemix

      I would say get Extend for vita… Well, that’s if you want to have some knowledge of the BlazBlue story. Extend has both Calamity Trigger and Continuum Shift story’s. If you don’t care for the story at all (or rather just jump in), then wait for this…x_x

      • Rasec46

        thanks for the opinion.
        I guess since i still haven’t any blazblue game that extend for the vita probably will entertain me for a good time.
        I already  have marvelvscapcom 3 and mortal kombat in it.
        And i was always intrigued by the story and noel is cute xP
        let’s see if i can buy it soon

  • leadintea

    People are speculating that Nu might be in:

    NOOOOOOOOOO!

    They can’t just kill lambda, It was my favorite character, and the most awesome of the game.

    I don’t want it to be replace by a no brain bot either, She deserves à story mode as well

      Murakumo unit crest. So it means that she can be revived, but most likely Nu-13 will replace her, there was heavy hint at CS true end.

  • kevinposta

    Oh mmm! I really like the new design for Noel :D
    I am really excited for this but knowing arc system work’s practice I’ll wait a few months till they release their beloved revisions.

  • thundergodCN

    You guys should realise this will head to arcades first, then after a year it’ll probably hit the consoles.

    But bigger news should be that Noel’s breast seem to have grown. lol

  • TWILTHERO

    Yeeaah, I’ll probably buy this. I skipped out on Extend, but this actually feels like a sequel than a simple revision.

    Noel without her cap looks awesome. :3

  • Nemesis_Dawn

    I must admit the trailer looks mighty fine and part of me WANTS this, even after my disgust at the release of Extend.

    But…

    No…I will wait a year or two to see whenever they release the expansions. I don’t trust them anymore after all that business. But it looks damn good.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3ITUZUKPZYUV2VUCVXUW3DVO6Y AJ

    My previous post regarding Blazblue still stands.  Extend was a betrayal in my opinion.  HOWEVER, I saw this new trailer.  Things look new, the absence of any Nu/Mu/Lambda/Delta/49ner *insert number here* is interesting.  I’ll take a wait and see to determine what is truly new with this game.

    What about Jubei, Nu/Lambda and Librarius? What of Xblaze as well? I’m glad there’s going to be another BlazBlue game but I hope they still have Nu/Lambda for ones are used to playing as them in tournaments.

    • MrKappa

      The ending to the trailer looked a bit telling so I’m guessing Kokonoe and Jubei will be unlocked for the arcades later down the line like with Elizabeth and Labrys in P4U.
      There’s always the off chance that Arcsys has caught on to the greed game and we can expect 3 or 4 characters as DLC.

      • doubletaco

         “The off chance”, eh? I think Extend established that pretty well.

      • Nemesis_Dawn

        Caught on? Off chance? They already surpassed Capcom with their $8 DLC characters whose stories you could only see if you bought Extend.

  • http://ggftw.com/forum/ Monkey_T

      And back then, it’s similar on what I said when Continuum Shift Extend was announced.

      “Glad I skipped Continuum Shift for CS: Extend”. 

      I wonder if there would be another revision for this. I hope not, to be honest. I would prefer if they make Guilty Gear next.

          • andref

             I agree cs may have been like a typical sequel on a handheld, that is more like a transition to the real sequel on the consoles, a la kingdom hearts but it did wrap up events after ct ended

          • http://ggftw.com/forum/ Monkey_T

            CS is a sequel, and Extend is the umpteenth revision of it.
            And when people say “Super” or “Arcade Edition” they’re just poking fun at how many Blazblue games there are, bud.

  • Voltech44

    Me six months ago: “You know, I really like BlazBlue, but you know what’s missing? A tough guy that just goes around punching people — and preferably uses earth-element moves.  Maybe he’ll be the next character.”

    I'm loving the new characters, but happiest about what they did to NOEL. My favorite and best character! I can't wait =^_^=

  • MCoelho

    Sooo, where is the preorder button? 

    I’m surprised that anyone talked didn’t about CT’s narrator voice in the trailer, it’s a thousand times better than CS’s default one.

    Mu was my main, i don’t expect her to be in this game, so gonna main Tsubaki and give Bullet a try!

    • XiaomuArisu

       Why shouldnt be mu in the game?
      Storywise your right but they could still include her for versus,arcade etc.

      • MCoelho

        I hope they include her then!

  • Jonathan Keycross

    Funny how changing only ONE character´s default appearance makes me consider this a true sequel rather than just an update with extra characters.

    I´m surprised they announced new combatants and among them wasn´t the Imperator, Jyubei, Phantom or even Kokonoe (though perhaps she`ll appear controlling a doll as before)

    Oh well, I only hope they´ll finish the story which is what keeps me interested in the franchise. I´m still considering buying CS:Extend though.

    • XiaomuArisu

      I think the three will be shown later or will become consol characters like mu was.
      BTW they say” The older characters have also been given new costumes and moves.”Its plural so maybe the others will get updates too….maybe.

      • Jonathan Keycross

        Yeah, possibly that´ll be the case, though perhaps that sentence was referring to Noel and Tsubaki (you need two and that´s already plural…damn you grammar!).

        …or perhaps the changes could be referring to what the “third chapter” offers, including DLC, extra downloadable chapters and/or updated versions.

        I hope you´re right and in future trailers we´ll see more changes.

  • epy

    If anyone can clear this up for me, why are people saying they’re glad they skipped CS: Extend? The trailer pretty much says this is BlazBlue 3 (so to speak). If anything, I would skip Chrono Phantasma until Chrono Phantasma Accent Core Plus comes out. CS Extend is pretty much the best version of CS you can get and that’s a good thing to have unless you bought a previous version of CS (and all the DLC) or Chrono Phantasma has a story mode with all the story from CS in it.

      >unless you bought a previous version of CS (and all the DLC)

      Well, because many did exactly that.

    On the subject of the PV;

    OH GOD.

    WHAT DID THEY DO TO YOU, NOEL?!
    No more duals, no more cap and no more DFC?

    Not sure if want.
    Please say the old costumes are choosable as Alts.

    • XiaomuArisu

       Duals?Her guns?She still has two of them,but I think they are not bolverk anymore.
      Cap….I like her hair(♥_♥)Tsubakis too its fluffyAbout alts,King of Fighters13 had two kyo new and old so its possible.

    Found this in MMCafe:

    - Azrael is a mid-aged muscular man who’s sort of a meathead, fighting is everything to him. Drive name is “The Terror”.

    - Amane is a man that looks as beautiful as a goddess, fights with a plumage. Drive name is “Spiral”.

    - Barret is a close-combat cool female mercenary with cleavage. At a glance her motions looks a bit like Makoto’s. Drive name is “Lockon”.

    - Voices: Barret= Toa Yukinari (Berserk anime series’ Casca), Azrael= Hiroki Yasumoto (Bleach’s Chad), Amane=Akira Ishida (Namco Tales series’ Rid Hershel)

    - Jin can do his DD in the air
    - Bang has a new DD where he uses his nail
    - Ragna has a new move that looks a bit like Gravedigger (probably means Testament’s from the GG series.)
    - Hazama has a new move where he turns into Terumi and steps on his opponent

    So it was indeed Akira Ishida who voiced Amane. But Hiroki Yasumoto? Yeah, the same guy who voiced Asura in Asura’s Wrath. Looks like Azrael and Bullet would be my new most used characters. I really like their design and their moves so far.

    • XiaomuArisu

       Azrael:”Who the hell do you think you are?”
      Hazama:”…..God”
      Azrael:!             HAZAMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!
      BURST!!!!
      ….I played Asuras wrath a little too much…BTW Asuras VA is Guiles too.FLASH KICK!

        • XiaomuArisu

          Did you know that Ragnas Seiyuu is the same as Gintoki from Gintama?
          He got his BB role because of GintamaXD
          Nerd facts!

          • LynxAmali

             He’s Burrito.
            No, seriously.

            It’s Bullet Luckfield.

            SUGITA!!!!!!

          • XiaomuArisu

          • Bentan

             i always think of Kyon when i play ragna haha

          • Valkenhayn

            Omg whenever I play Ragna it HAS to be Gintoki colors!

          • XiaomuArisu

             Thats why they exist.
            Now bring me some tea Valkenhayn and some parfaits too.

            You read that in rachels voice didnt you?XD

          • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

            And he’s voicing Valter in Sol Trigger too. You know, the guy with the scythe. Black Onslaught jokes ahoy~

          • XiaomuArisu

             I will show you fear!
            There is no hell!
            Just Darkness!
            This is the Power of the Azure!

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/EnvyMizuhashi Garyuu of Spades

         I demand that Azreal be voiced by Liam O’ Brien. NOW!

        • Zeik56

           So Endrance basically? I’m down with that.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/EnvyMizuhashi Garyuu of Spades

             Now you’ve got me thinking Amane. Well, that works too. lol

          • Zeik56

            Oh right, I was thinking of Amane too, not Azrael.

        • Anime10121

           Yes! Oh god YES!

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/EnvyMizuhashi Garyuu of Spades

       I’ve been waiting a long time for Arcsys to create a character like Bullet, and they certainly didn’t disappoint.

      I’m calling it now. She’s all mine. ^^

  • XiaomuArisu

     ….Not the game is to late the trailer is.
    3 different people linked the trailer thats why I sayed to late another one showed it.
    BTW I said GREAT BB3 HORRAY and you think im bashing it?
    I like BB to but im not insulting people if they not like it.
    …..
    P4A is a fun game too!XDWhy hate one if you can have both?

    3 new characters but 
    I did not see Lambda or Mu in the trailer. Not sure if they have been removed or not :(

  • Katamari Toys

    Man, cant wait to play it! But I’m still waiting for Kokonoe/Jubei/Torakaka

  • z_merquise

    Someone got high.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      That someone got banned.

    • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

      I hope that’s how it was, because otherwise, it’d be a waste of Homo sapiens DNA. What I find especially hilarious in hindsight is that he made a single-use e-mail and Disqus account, threw one long piece of insult, and then immediately announced that he’s running away without looking back. Didn’t even dare using a real profile or anything. I mean, I’ve seen online cowards, but this deserves a medal of some sort…

  • revenent hell

    The usage of language shows how ignorant you indeed are Lee Ford. The only ignorance here is what you have displayed.

    Edit: and just because YOU think this is the greatest fighting series out there dosent mean everone else does to. You opinion is not the ONLY one that matters.
    Personally im more looking forward to P4A more so than any fighter to date but thats my preferance not everyone is going to want it as much as I but I at least have mentality enough to understand this

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Posting here since i can’t reply to an already banned comment.

      My apologies folks for not catching Lee Ford quicker, that certainly isn’t what we want here in any form. Insta-ban on Ford, even with his promise to never come back.

      For those who will ask — it was just a straight diatribe of hate and vulgarities designed to beat our checks. While the * can be a friend when there is a point to be made, it is not acceptable to use it to spew hate.

  • imaguni

    This is AWESOME news!!

  • Code

    rarrr, oh goddd, so excite >Aw< Amane looks neat in particular). Also is it just me, or are they extremely reminiscent of the early design ideas for Litchi, and Bang o3o~? Very curious! I'm really hoping Kokonoe, and Jubei make the playable cast ◕w<; Godd so excite~ Although I'll never not see ChronoFangasim as the title .___.'

  • http://blackstar2661.deviantart.com/ SilverSpades

    I was never good at BlazBlue, got my ass kicked everytime. That’s why I didn’t get Persona 4 Arena. I’d prolly get beaten like I stole something, heh.

  • Elwin Louis Lavina

    This will be an AWESOME game.

    XD

  • pgover

    Finally good to hear about a third Blazblue instead of another version of Continuum Shift. The trailer is looking pretty darn good. Can’t wait to play as Bullet and Azrael, they look like a ton of fun.

  • personablaze

    No Kokonoe or Jubei?,Oh well maybe we will get them as DLC characters when the game comes to consoles.

    • MCoelho

      Relax, the game was just announced, they may include both later on for the Arcade, or make them console exclusives, like Mu-12 was on CS release.

      • personablaze

        Yea I know,Its just that in my hype it was all I could think about:p,I’m just so glad we got some BB new’s ^_^.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    Now this is the best news ever to wake up to.

    • Code

      rarr, I know >Aw<;; So good~

  • LETS PRAY FOR LOCALIZATION

    Yay more Ice carz and Jin x Ragna looove~~
    and Noels new design looks pretty.

  • DemonicX

    Oh, God! Persona in two days and now this? I am pumped!

  • Elvick

    I hope it’s on PS Vita too. I’m somehow better at CS Extend when I play it on my Vita. xP Plus, I like playing it anywhere.
