BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Trailer Shows Off New Characters And Moves

By Ishaan . August 5, 2012 . 10:38am

Arc System Works have released the first trailer for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma. You can watch it below:

 

 

As previously reported, Chrono Phantasma has three new characters—Amane, Bullet and Azrael—and other features such as updated moves and costumes. The game will be released in Japanese arcades this winter.

  • Neppygear

    Hyped. So very hyped. Hyped beyond belief, even.

  • pgover

    I’m personally rather excited for Bullet and Azrael, they look like a ton of fun to play as. I’ll definitely be using them a lot when I get Chrono Phantasma. Not to sure about Amane though but he might be worth a shot.

    Also, loving Noel’s new outfit.

    • Locklear93

      I’m also glad to see Noel’s new outfit.  After the events of Continuum Shift, I can’t see her sticking with the NOL.  Good to keep familiar colors and so on, but the uniform just didn’t fit, given the circumstances.

  • DesmaX

    Hm… Maybe I’ll start the series with this one. Looking pretty good

  • MrRobbyM

    The new characters look really cool and fun to play as. I’ll be putting this on my wishlist.

  • Arcm

    Woot!! Now announce Jubei as playable and my hype will skyrocket.

  • Ryan Chiu

    I’m not sure how to feel about the new characters… I guess I just got so used to the current ones. I liked the character design from Continuum Shift better.

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

       I’m sticking to Bullet, even though her design is kinda predictable. I kinda-sorta wanted a design change overhaul for Tsubaki after what’s being done to her. Everyone else is fine though.

  • themen757

    okay i like blazeblue and all but im not going to buy this if all we get is 3 damn characters in the game no freaking way its very tempting indeed but I’m not settling for less..alot of people ask for jubei witch i dont see why hes not even on continuum shift extended it doesnt make no sense….i hope its more characters announced later on in the future 

  • Luna Kazemaru

    LOL SRK’s comments ended up like I thought they be.

  • Vitonofrio del Rosso

    uhm either the seyuu is mismatched or… is amane supposed to be a travestite?

    • Locklear93

      Could be a transvestite, or could be who-knows-what, considering that Platinum is three entities in one body, not all the same gender.

    • gaiahatergaia

      glad i’m not the only one who was brainmolested…
      But seriously, what the hell is going on, japan?

      • https://twitter.com/#!/Ojsinnerz Firo_Prochainezo

        There tends to be a trap character in ridiculous amounts of Japanese entertainment. Nothing really new.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

          Except this trap have a veeeeryyy un-trap voice lol.

    • LynxAmali

       He’s the Bridget of Blazblue.

      That and Ishida’s already voiced traps before.

      Tieria, anyone?

  • themen757

    i want to see more characters now..since blazeblue gotten so popular now i hope it just isn’t 3 characters

  • AnimeRemix

    The word hype can’t even describe how hype I am for this game… Hype.

  • shion16

    Blazblue Calamity Trigger
    Blazblue Continuum Shift
    Blazblue Continuum Shift II
    Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend
    Blazblue Chrono Phantasma (by the way…its fantasma! not phantasma)
    (UPDATE : i was wrong Dx)

    I could handle Capcom business decisions but this is absurd
    I love this game, but my wallet is empty so i quit

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

      I can’t find fantasma anywhere in my dictionary bro. You 100% sure?

      • shion16

        Fantasma is latin for ghost or phantom

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

          Phantasma is English for ghost or phantom.

        • Crevox

          It’s Phantasma, I dunno why you would think otherwise lol

        • https://twitter.com/kcgst Karu

           Phantasma is the latin one, now fantasma it´s the spanish word for ghost :)

          • shion16

            I was sure its fantasma D=

    • Ty Austin

      I agree, and the worst part is, they charge twice the price for half the content. -_-’…

    • Perona

       Continuum Shift and Phantasma are sequels. CSII was a free update and extend was the only expansion.

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

      Well we didn’t even have to pay for CS2 and you definitely should’ve seen this one coming, hell Mori said 2012 was when he wanted to finish the 3rd iteration.

  • gaiahatergaia

    ???????
    That Amane Nishiki character is confusing my brain.

    • ToshiChan

       at least it’s only your brain. He’s confusing my penis.

  • Cephrien

    Mmm. Another deliciously sexy brawler babe character added to the roster.

    Love me some Bullet~ <3

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

      No cutting in line. I got dibs on Bullet first. ^^

  • AzuNo17

     Hopefully whatever story that was in CS:E gets added in here. Totally skipped out on that.

    The new characters look pretty bland in terms of design and fighting style, except for Amane. Hopefully their backstory and background music make up for it.

    Also, Noel’s beret!!!!!! It’s gone!!! Never been so sad since Jill Valentine’s redesigned hair…

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

    It seems lk P4A is not their last fighting game after all.

    Woah at 0.32: Is tht OH MA SHOE!??? Amane voice….. Too Obvious Trap???
    And lol the TV doesn’t let the dude finish his crazy laugh.

    BTW, is it oky to get into the series frm here??? A brief summary 4 the series will do too.

    • LynxAmali

       Get CS Extend. It has the Calamity Trigger storyline with it as well as regular CS.

      You’ll miss out on a lot if you start from CP.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

        Thk! Utube here we go!!! (Extend is on Vita ryte??)

        • http://youtube.com/TsukuyomiRagna Tsukuyomi_Ragna

          yes it is ^^

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

            I hope there a decent vid 4 Extend on Utube…. (No Vita)

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

      “A brief summary 4 the series will do too.”

      Nothing makes any sense whatsoever.

  • themen757

    pause at 2:50 

  • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

    Amane Nishiki is BlazBlue’s “Bridget”…. So don’t worry because this is normal….

    Move along, people….

  • http://ggftw.com/forum/ Monkey_T

    Alright! We were missing the gay guy! Wait, no, that’s Jin… sorta…
    Alright! We were missing the beefcake! Uh, I guess that’d be Tager…
    Alright! We were missing the sexy close-combat chick! Err, we already have Makoto and Litchi…

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

      Jin was kinda the gay guy, but he sure as hell ain’t no Zhang He. Thinking about it, Akane might just be ambiguously gay like He.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7YQV6-qR7c

      • andref

        I wouldn’t consider jin gay more like an extreme yandere or extreme sadist who just so happened to have a brother complex which translated to if I can’t have him no else can so I’ll just kill him and probably keep his corpse in my room to love on

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

      We still need a crazy ass possessed dude.

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

        That’d be Arakune.

  • Ty Austin

    You’re kidding?  I just bought CSEX for $40…  Now I’m going to have to spend another $60-$40?

    I don’t understand why people complain about Capcom doing this, when Arc System does it to a worse extent.  SSFIV you payed $30 and got 10 new characters, then $20 for DLC for another 4 characters, no further releases.  

    I just can’t justify paying at least another $40 for 2-4 characters a fourth time.  Please release this update at a smaller price this time around.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      ZzzzZzzz

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

      The new characters and outfits aren’t the only additions, brah. This is an actual sequel, not an update, meaning there’s gonna be a whole lot more.

      • Luna Kazemaru

         I find it funny they keep bringin up CS2 when that one was free lol

        • Ty Austin

          Who brought up CS2?  I’m so happy they didn’t release that at retail.

          • Luna Kazemaru

             the only people that bought CS2 where the people with handheld and i don’t think CS was even on the handheld at the time.

      • Ty Austin

        Meaning it’s going to be $60, great…

        Sorry, I’m already salty over all the updates Arc Systems released before this.  Not to mention buying the DLC, only to be forced into buying CSEX for 1 character and some updates.

        • Herok♞

           Extend did have more story and modes.

          • Ty Austin

            For most of the people who buy fighting game updates so they can play against others, this doesn’t mean much.

            Although, it is nice to know that BB’s story mode is so big that you can almost consider it a game in itself without the versus mode.

          • Herok♞

             Also about the $60 dollar comment no BB game has been released at that price I believe both CT and CS were $40 at launch.

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

             @Cyberninja776:disqus

            I believe CT was $60. I bought the limited edition for about $70-80. But that’s the only game that had that price.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Humzah-Jan/100001147084979 Humzah Jan

      This is a true sequel. What’s to complain about? It’ll be out in 2013 for consoles anyway.

      • Ty Austin

        That’s great and all, but i’m complaining more about the revisions they keep releasing and the price they charge.

        Sequel is fine, but I already spent a fortune on the first one.

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

          Then the main problem is with your budget on games, not Arc System Works’ business. You say you JUST bought CSEX? Guess you should’ve bought it one Day 1, then you’d probably be feeling less about what you’re complaining about now.

          Not that it matters, because it’ll take a long while for this game to be released on consoles, as always. You’ll have plenty of time complaining the same crap that everyone does, give up, watch more trailers, then have the rationality to think about whether or not you want to save up money in order to get this game.

      • MCoelho

        People forget that this game has a story, unlike every other fighting game.

        Also, i like how everyone ignores CS2 being a free update.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003538200116 Azeez MJ

    guys haven’t you noticed somethong !!??
    bullet’s eyes are red and green and she also has a white hair.. WTF

    • Code

      Uhhh they are clearly yellow. Pretty sure your just looking at Ragna o3o;

    • DemonicX

      I thought the same thing at first. However, it seems if you enlarge the video, her eyes are actually light orange. Still, she looks like a female version of Ragna to me..

  • Ayaka

    Oh crap Noel looks like the main heroine from Lollipop Chainsaw now o__o

    Repeating myself again, Arc you know and I know as well that you’re going to release at least one or two updates for this too so, you better put in Bloodedge playable :3 I don’t care if it’s the same as Ragna. Bloodedge is way cooler and we need him in the game.

    • Luna Kazemaru

       Bloodedge  has been dead for 80 years >.>

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/5UFEVTPDTXD33NSMUFMX4TEAMQ Mike

      Spoilers for Phase Zero….

      He not only the same as Ragna HE IS RAGNA!

      Bloodedge and Ragna are the same person, it happend when Ragna fell into the cauldren and his grimoire fused with nu creating the black beast which fell into some kinda time shift thing, transporting them to the past(Jin followed them and became Hakuman by the way)

      now this is where it starts to get confusing but I’ll explain alot about the past. Ragna lost his memory when he ent through time(so he diden’t know he was from the future)long story short he fought the black beast and remembered what happened(that he came from the future) then he allowed the Black beast to eat him, which is why it stopped moving for all that time.

      So basically Ragna died to protect his future, BUT Hazama and Relius who ar from the past started changing events like creating Noel which is why Ragna is still alive(Why that did not royally screw up time and space I don’t know)

      • Luna Kazemaru

         hence why bloodedge is dead :V

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/5UFEVTPDTXD33NSMUFMX4TEAMQ Mike

          Bloodedge and Ragna are the same exact person so he isen’t dead, he never really existed(but he does as Ragna, man this is giving me a headache) since Hazama and Relius changed everything(which I still don’t get how that diden’t screw everything up)

          • Luna Kazemaru

             Which is why most who read phase zero say he dead so they don’t give themselves a headache over it

  • Crevox

    There’s a REASON there were mediocre “additions” like CS2 and EXTEND before this. They were working on P4A the entire time… and now that they finally finished that, you have this. The proper sequel.

    • http://www.facebook.com/eliezer.dossantos.566 Eliézer Dos Santos

      Or, they wanted to make a quick cash.

      • LynxAmali

         Maybe both?

        Dunno.

        I don’t work for ArkSys.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001531081700 Vale LN SkreiHolme

    I loved the part where Carl is like KISAAMMAMAMAAAAAA!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stephen-Mc-Devitt/100002626261475 Stephen Mc Devitt

    What is it with the Japanese wanting to make their guys look like chicks? Amane sounds like-no, is a guy.

    Hopefully the next game will be good because CS felt too much like CT and a bit derailed by locking certain parts of the story. I hope CP won’t make the obvious “bad”, “true” and “gag” endings. CP should be more like CT.

    Arc System Works said they were half-way through the BB saga so Nu/Lambda, Mu, Jubei, Phantom and Saya could be made playable for the fourth installment but I’m sure the series will continue to have sequels.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    They all look so delicious. I need this now.

  • Tenno Seremel

    Ok, I got it, I’m buying, ok? Just make GG next, pretty please?

    • thundergodCN

      Ragna: In the meantime you over there get lost, there’s something ahead I have to do, bastard it won’t be a problem if I kill you.

      Jin: Sorry for the nonsense, You, I want to ask you..what exactly happened here. 

      Noel: Why do I have to remain hidden, I want to save Tsubaki ! to the very end of the end.

      Tao: face Tao’s fist here I go~Nyan

      Tager: Battle-mode activated, no need for concern about the girl’s safety.
       
      Arakune: Right I have no use for you kekehe

      Bang: lol don’t know olden Japanese 風林火山(fuurinkazan)dadada da da

      Carl: we’ll beat those guys, let’s go nee-san, you bastard!!

      Makoto: You got to be freakin kiddin me. I won’t let you guys lay a hand on my best friends

      well without any Japanese subtitles, I can’t translate the rest of the characters. Feel free to correct me anyone if you think there was fault

    Arc System Works I love them so much for the work they do. The stages look really fantastic and its awesome how some chararchters got some new moves:Ragna using the scythe. The story looks like its gonna be really intense so I can’t wait to see it!

  • Go2hell66

    Cant handle the wait so im gonna put myself into a coma and hibernate until this game comes out

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      Go stock up your fat supply be4 u did tht, oky??

    • AnimeRemix

      I would seriously join you… But man… Too many other games that I want will be out by the time this releases, XD.

      Fixed typo.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      I would be doing that aswell but yeah to much for me to get ready for.

    • colorblindnightmare

      would do the same if the rest of the years wasn’t jam packed! ‘Sides if i did it today i would miss out on p4a!

  • Solomon_Kano

    Everything about Bullet just… yes.

    Also, it appears Azrael gets his style tips from Kanji.

    • Luna Kazemaru

       Bullet reminds me of zenia from Arcana heart

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

        That makes two of us. lol Makoto stole Zenia’s charge guage, so I wonder how Bullet is handled.

        • Luna Kazemaru

          Same here whatever way it is she will be my main

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

             Aye, kindred spirit. Bullet mains we are. Let us fight each other once this game comes out. ^^

          • Luna Kazemaru

             sure why not since I always get BB on both systems more players the marry :P

    • colorblindnightmare

      agreed, he looks to be quite the brawler :D

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      And Akihiko too.

  • Laharl

    Stop dicking around with this androgyny and nobodies and finally give us jubei!

    • Luna Kazemaru

      Jubei is to OP to be playable 

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

         Seconded.

      • Laharl

        Pfft, If Slayer can be playable, why not Jubei? 

        • Luna Kazemaru

           Ok i give you that :U

  • evilmoogle

    I can already predict what the next blazblue is.
    BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma 2 and after that  BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma extend.

    Of course don’t forget the super editions.

    • Luna Kazemaru

       How cute you got jokes.

    • Fidelis

      These aren’t predictions.
      Extensions are an unfortunate fighting game tradition

      If you’re familiar with the genre at all, it’s as inevitable as death

  • Covnam

    That’s good timing, I was just thinking of picking up CS Extend. I know this one is a ways off, but maybe I’ll just wait again, or see if this causes Extend to drop even further in price. Then I just need to decide if I should go for 360 like I did with CT or switch to PS3 now that I have the choice.

  • ThatAzure

    Yeah!!! XD Looks so amazing!!! I love Blazblue xD. Noel looks even sexier this time around!!! The new the game is looking great; I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • http://www.facebook.com/quinton.turner.980 Quinton Turner

    I’m totally maining Bullet when this comes out, She kind of looks like a combination of BB’s Makoto and Arcana Hearts’ Zenia in terms of playstyle and design.

    (plus she a beastkin, which is awesome!)

    • pothier.adrien

       Where do you see her being a beastkin ?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002868112952 Blaine Frisbey

        Well, when it shows her fighting, you can see what appears to be a tail, but it may be a sash, belt, etc.

      • Go2hell66

        The tail

        • pothier.adrien

           Pretty sure that’s her belt.

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

            No, it’s a tail. She’s a monkey girl. She even poses a primal stance that’s as monkey-like as you can get.

  • http://www.facebook.com/stale.laastad Ståle Laastad

    Instead of saying; OMG all the blazblue games are similar, i am actually going to google and see just how different they are. 

    • Fidelis

      You shouldn’t have even had an urge to say that at all if you haven’t even actually played all of them..

  • RablaAndrews

    I’ll wait for the version with the included DLC and extra modes, as usual.

    • SLick123456789111

       Well considering I’m no heavy BB fan , I might wait as well.
      But I have to admit as said fan , this announcement got me somewhat interested in this series again.

  • AoNoise

    Still no Kokonoe ): *dies a little inside*

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stephen-Mc-Devitt/100002626261475 Stephen Mc Devitt

      Why do people want Kokonoe to fight? She’s a scientist with no real combat skills and refuses to use magic.

      • MrKappa

        Magic is the strongest thing in the BB universe and Hakumen has hinted that she is capable of fighting.
        You don’t eve know why she refuses to use magic so there is no reason she has to be stuck never using it again.

        • Luna Kazemaru

           it has to do with her mom is what everything keeps hinting.

    • evilmoogle

      DLC, you never know.

    • Mike Pureka

       Get over it.

  • http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/21421.html?type=4 Kashell

    This is great. I felt totally ripped off after buying Extend the day it came out. Not only was Relius a disappointing character, but all of the “tweaks” made it seem like it could have been another DLC batch. With CP, it looks like a full-fledged new game that fans of the series can sink their teeth into, as well as a place for new people to start playing.

  • Katamari Toys

    FGOTY!

  • andref

     Still the one thing I’m most looking forward to in this game is to find out how crazy Ragna becomes by being dropped down into the abyss of insanity having Taokaka as a traveling companion

    OH.MY.GAWD! It’s been so long since there was an ACTUAL sequel! Loving the new characters and is anyone chilled by the fact that Arakune can TALK without his speech being broken!?

  • vileBrenman

    any one have guesses on what the new characters roles are. here is my idea Bullet is probably a vigilante azereal looks like a knight of blue flame like noel or jin. im lost on that amane person but i think he might be an accomplice of Hazama.

    • AnimeRemix

      We also have to remember Bang is trying to find Lord Tenjo son. I think Azrael (the blue hair guy) probably is the person Bang is looking for.

      Bullet seems like she’s probably on Noel and Makoto side.

      I think Amane might be a new random person all together. A important person who has a high title and is very skilled in fighting. Just all my thoughts. ^_^

    • Opn

       Amane – Lord tenjos son
      Azereal – Going to guess hes on hazamas side
      Bullet – Same thing with azereal

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

        Nah, I find Azrael to just be on his own side or the NOL’s (depending on whether he’s ordered by the Imperator or Hazama). I believe someone translated that he just fights for the sake of fighting. Bullet is a vigilante so she’s pretty neutral.

    Oh man, I’m so excited, I can’t wai-

    Wait a second

    No Nu-13 or Mu-12?  Maybe as secret characters/DLC?  Gotta have her in some form D:

  • Laharl

    Bullet looks like Lightning…
    God that makes me disappointed in Aksys. At least I know who to torture in practice.

    • Mike Pureka

       Lightning? o.O

      Also, ARCSYS.  ARCSYS MAKES THIS GAME.

      Leave hapless Aksys, the localization company, out of it.

  • KyoyaHibari

    *Sigh* I JUST decided to get Extend and they announce this…terrible timing. Ah well, I guess I got time to practice for quite a while in preparation for it.

    • colorblindnightmare

      i kinda agree, but the arcade release isn’t til late this year, console is susally 6-7 months down the road from there. So i’d say you and i have time

    • Fidelis

      That’s actually a good thing, if you want to enjoy the story..

      I doubt CP’s gonna have as thorough of a recap

  • O.O

    Another one???? ahhh my….wallet please make it stop

  • Bentan

    console will add 1 or 2 characters as usual of course.. and i guess there might be up to 3 more dlc characters

  • XypherCode

    Noel is….YES! :D

  • Cjs0511

    Jubei: Guess this cat’s gonna have to wait for a bit longer.

  • http://zenkostickfighter.blogspot.com/ Zenko404

    I not like the art :C in Extend was awesome

  • http://chronotwist.deviantart.com/ JustThisOne

    What a surprise, this whole thing. I think I liked some of the old character designs better than these ones though, but not by much. I think I really just miss Noel’s beret. xD

  • Souji Tendou

    I still don’t like the fact that they don’t give Jin a new costume. He’s not part of NOL anymore right, just like Noel? :/

    • Luna Kazemaru

      They may change it mid way.

    • Locklear93

      Jin doesn’t strike me as being “all there” so to speak.  While I agree completely that he’s no longer in the NOL’s good graces, he seems like he’d be a little less likely to stop and consider whether or not what he’s wearing suits his current attitudes than Noel. <_<

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

       Jin should be wearing a blue biker suit riding his vintage motorcycle. Or Yukianesa if he/she turns into a bike.

    Keep the fighting game train rolling arcsys! now that Persona’s out of the way focus on this and GG and i will continue my support!

    WHERE IS KOKONOE AND JUBEI? >.<

    Noel looks like hooker now, I mean I like her hair but that’s about it :(

  • Hinataharem

    And the wheel of fate keeps turning.

    Glad to see more Blazblue

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

    That Azrael bloke looks like a real beast! I’d definitely try him out. Still getting use to lady Noel’s new outfit. Liking what I’ve seen so far, despite not seeing anything about Jubei. Time will tell…

  • http://twitter.com/monkeyking2135 monkey king

    And people bitch about capcom..Glad I got didn’t get any of them cept extend, going to do the same and just wait for the inevitable chrono phantasma extend.

    • Mike Pureka

       Yeah, I hate it when companies release new games too.

      • http://twitter.com/monkeyking2135 monkey king

        Uhh…what? Were you trying to make some jab about releasing games?
        If so then your comment is horribly wasted since mine didn’t contain anything about that being a detriment.
        Next time you try to be clever, at least make sure you fully understand what you are commenting on.

    • Luna Kazemaru

       capcom defender’s are always so blind.

      • http://twitter.com/monkeyking2135 monkey king

        Capcom defender? Where exactly did I remotely defend anything? You must’ve missed my point about the hypocrisy in bitching about capcom but it being totally fine when another company does the same (worse) thing, for whatever reason (favouritism).

  • Tee Niitris

    These new characters came out of nowhere.

    ArcSys has always let their unique playstyles do the talking, so I won’t say too much about how they look. Although I will say that Azrael and Bullet’s appearance are a bit plain looking compared to most of the cast.

    And more cross-dressing guys… I don’t get the fascination with them. Although I’m not surprised ArcSys used this character archetype considering the uniqueness of the rest of the characters.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Max-Lestage/100001999473380 Max Lestage

      I’m getting sick of these generic androgynous characters. I’m disappointed in ArcSys. Bullet and Azrael look okay but we seen this Amane dude a million times before.

  • MrJechgo

    Well, my hype meter just broke down from an overload… gonna take a week to replace…

    Ok, no Lambda/Nu, no Mu, no Jubei, no Phantom, no Torakaka, no Kokonoe, no Imperator and no young master Tenjo… I really hope that those are planned, mainly because they all deserve to go from NPC to PC status, and a Nu clone and a Mu clone would be appreciated too.

    However, love the new style, love the 3 new characters, love the new moves… and LOVE the new sprite for Noel.

  • French

    Dope

  • Glenn De Boer

    For the people that doubt on wether to buy Extend or not. If you are planning to play the Story Mode I’d reccomend you buy it otherwise the Console version might leave you off not knowing what happened in the games before Chrono Phantasma.

    • zferolie

      I’m one of those guys. I just bought the first edition of BB2, and got all the DLC and patches, but never bought Extend. I liked the story, and I am tempted to get it just for that…. but I really don’t want to support that sort of business practice. I am fine with updates and such, but full price for 3 characters I already bought, 1 new character, and story? That’s just stupid. I wish they just made it a patch for the first game with a 10-20 dollar price tag.

      Anyway, I will be buying this game. I just wish there was a Nu, or Kokonoe, Junbei, Phantom, or Torakaka was playable… maybe for the console release or DLC I suppose.

      • Fidelis

        I thought it was common knowledge that if you want to buy a game but don’t want to support the company, you’re supposed to either get it off of ebay or used from gamestop.

         And to be completely honest, I’d be kinda miffed if Torakaka was playable..Seems like she’d be a waste of a slot.

        ..I haven’t said “waste of a slot” since before vanilla MVC3 was released..

        • zferolie

           True. I suppose getting it at gamestop used would work. I can’t remember if it was cheap enough there yet or not.

          Well, I can see why one would see it that way. She may fight just like Tao. That’s why I put her last. Let those others in first, and Put Tora in if they can make her unique.

      • Katamari Toys

        so, you think it is bad that they released a new disk (CSE) 19 months after CS even if CS2 was a free patch just because you bought the characters DLC?

        • zferolie

           Well… I guess I was just upset at the price.. I don’t know. It kinda urked me. I just wished they gave us the option to have Extend be a DLC for people who already had CS.

          I also disagreed with how UMvC3 did it. I liked how SSF4 AE 2012 did it though.

          I still planned to buy the game at some point, just when it was much cheaper.

  • Fidelis

    This is the greatest kind of news. In fact, the possibility of news like this is why I come back to this site everyday.

    I must say it’s pretty shocking that the new characters are actually uh..new characters

    That’s a first for BB

  • Luna Kazemaru

     I don’t know why people are saying why nu and lamba ect aren’t in the game and its the first PV…

    • Glenn De Boer

       Point being Nu got destroyed in the first game Lambda got killed in the second one and Mu being reverted to Noel sure would not make sense to have playable storywise. gameplay-wise I think Mu could end up as an Unlimited for Noel in a way like Nu was an Unlimited for Lambda. But if that’s gonna be the case is gonna be seen later.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        Storywise sure they cant be in it they are dead verses is another thing which is what people not understanding>.>

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

          Arcsys would just make either Murakumos playable in arcades and call it a day, but one thing that guarantees yet another inclusion is the Murakumo hinted at the CS true ending.

          • Luna Kazemaru

             I know right  everyone needs to chill out its the first PV of the game and everyone is getting mad at nothing. Lol some kid is crying his heart out like a 12 yr old on andriasang because they didn’t show kokonoe lol

    NOEL!!!!! <3 

  • Maia Kasoya

    Let’s see… Noel looks fantastic (though I do miss that awesome blue hat), Tsubaki looks badass with dark colors, and Amane = Bridget. Sad there’s no Murakumo, but as someone said below, one (or all) of them could show up or an entirely nu one might show up.
    And who drew the character artwork this time?

    • Rishtopher

      I heard it was Mori this time? I could be (very) wrong.

  • Leonard Norwood Jr.

    I been have Continuum Shift for awhile now, and while i’ll get Extend in the meantime and play it a bit, I’ve already gone through the extra Story Modes for Extend via Youtube, don’t ask. For the most part, I had other games to play that were also to my attention that’s all. I’ll will get this new blazblue game when it comes out on Console.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000172099718 Dominic Hunter

    Oh my god… This looks like a TRUE sequel!

  • Rishtopher

    I’ve read a lot of posts from angry fans saying how they just got extend or that ASW is dumb for announcing this right after P4U just launched on console. 

    Guys, calm down. You won’t be playing this game for at least a year (on console). ~6 months before this hits arcades, ~6 more before they hit consoles (in Japan).

  • AceWildCard

    This is the Calamity Trigger that caught me in a continuum shift that will once again make me Extend my reach to my wallet to cause a Chrono Phantasma in my ps3…

  • Pipiskin99

    apart from people who will probably bash it for being just a forced update, does it stand as good way to star fresh on the series? i’ve played calamity trigger only, will chrono phantasma be enough or should i play something prior to that?

    • Justin Del Campo

      Get BB:CSEX mate you wouldn’t understand anything at all otherwise, a hell of a lot happened between CT and CP. Of course if story isnt your thing then reading the wiki or searching up the True ending would suffice, but you’d miss out on all the little nuances and hints, and some really deep stuff with Hakumen and a certain someone.
