    After playing Persona 4 Arena, I can say that I’m pretty interested in BlazBlue. This is might be a purchase if it turned out great.

    • Locklear93

      On the whole, I actually like Blazblue better than P4A (and I love P4A).  If you can pick up a Blazblue game at a price you’re comfortable with, I’d encourage you to give the series a go before the next iteration.

    • Herok♞

      Honestly right now I would say P4A is the perfect intro to arc games, so if you like it enough buy BBCS:extend.

  • Julian Esteban Soria

    I really hope that Tsubaki survive at the end
    also there are 2 pics of a new move of Arakune (reminds me of Double in SkullGirls)  and Tao´s new distortion, with Tora as her assist

  • Not buying any more BlazBlue games after they way they (barely) rehash old titles as new releases and the insanely expensive dlc… Calamity Trigger to Continuum Shift was enough…

    • Mike Pureka

       Because clearly, the way to discourage them from making remakes is to not buy their games when it’s NOT a remake…

      • They didn’t make it yet. The rehash of this will come out in 2013

        • It probably is better to wait since they will inevitably do incremental upgrades of this title until a complete version ala Extend comes out.  Still you’re a better man than me, because I’ll still buy it day one knowing that the first version will soon be obsolete.

          •  Yeah, I have no issue with people buying it (obviously people can do as they wish).  But I’m glad someone realizes the inevitable, minor upgrade rehash.

        • Luna Kazemaru

           If you going to complain about rehashes you should just stop playing fighting games in general then.

    • LynxAmali

      Yeah, because gee, I dunno, that’s totally justified by the fact that it’s a new game. Nope. No relevance.

      Get over it.

      • Calamit Trigger was a new game too.. Get over yourself

        • LynxAmali

           I never said ANYTHING about Calamity Trigger.

          I was referring to Chrono Phantasma.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      The way I see it, all fighting games have this problem. It would take so much work to somehow make everything new, but with the same characters and familiar fighting system? They could’ve just scrapped all the characters for new ones, but BB has a pretty well put together story (so characters are important). At least it’s a new game that continues the story.
      The only game I didn’t buy was Continuum Shift (I got Extend). Though I bought the DLC (on sale) for Continuum Shift for when I’m was going to buy it (then Extend comes out lol)

    • Luna Kazemaru

       CT= new game
      CS=new game
      CS2= free patch
      Extend= rehash
      CP= new game


  • Koji Kabuto

    I prefer her original outfit but she always looks great no matter what she is wearing

  • andref

    If I remember right that costume doesn’t seem that new since going through continuum shift and doing tsubaki’s route for her dark route she appears at the end with that costume

    • Crazy_O

       Isnt it more purple?

      • andref

         I don’t see that much of a difference though maybe it seems a bigger difference due the art style for tsubaki in this game being a bit updated.

        • Crazy_O

           I think I got it, replace the yellow with white.
          That’s also what made me think her new version is less purple than the old.

          • andref

             I see what you mean and I’m surprised I never noticed the yellow, I thought it was white too. Other than that, not much of a difference

        • Luna Kazemaru

           All they honestly did IMO was change her wing and blade to red and changed her effects of her drive.

  • margherita mastropaolo

    tsubaki looks very good shrouded in black

  • Still like her design regardless of color, but I would’ve preferred a new one, personally. I don’t know where she’s placed in the story, but I find having Tsubaki involved in killing Ragna/Jin/Noel alongside the Imperator, still wearing the Zero Squadron uniform (shifted to black) to be…idk, awkward?

    • Mike Pureka

       Not sure why; She’s still working for the same people.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    It’s not really know this was a color plate from CS I think her second one but whatever.

    • Mike Pureka

       Incorrect.  This palette does not exist in CS.  While she did have an outfit that was black, her hair color was different and a lot of the details as well.

  • Tsubaki; proving that black is back in this season.

  • Foofin Around

    Tsubaki became my favorite character from the moment she was introduced.  The fact that I also love her for her play style and story (along with her design) makes her my favorite fighting game character, as well as one of my favorite characters in any game!

    While she had a SIMILAR outfit before, I like the way this looks!  

    The other one was a black outfit, black wings, and blond hair.  This outfit is black with red wings and red hair.  Small details, I know, but it makes a world of a difference!  The way her hair looks with those new red wings is amazing, and it’s further enhanced by the color’s contrast to the black.

    Seriously @Ishaan:disqus , thank you for posting these great images!  (^o^)/

    *Begins listening to her vocal theme* :

  • andref

    One thing I would hope to see is maybe Ragna’s lost form sort of how guilty gear made Sol’s gear war form “order Sol” playable. Though I’m still waiting to actually play as Sol’s gear form in a fighting game instead of Overture 2

  • Code

    Mmm nothing particularly new, would have been more interesting seeing more details on new characters, or Tao, Tao would have interested me u3u *nods*

  • ThatAzure

    I like evil Tsubaki better :P I can’t wait for more news on BBCP especially news on Noel and her new astral heat xD.
    An image showing Torakaka in Taokaka’s distortion drive has also been released.

    • ThatAzure

       Forgot to show the screenshot lol

  • Sonny Reyes

    Tsubaki going black, nice. It safe to say they update her! I wonder her original color scheme will be available?

    Nothing new about this game so far. We know we have 3 new characters, all characters BGM are remix or arranged, new stage, new story(it has 3 route), game look a bit fast pacing, Tsubaki and Noel got some new costume and all character got few new moves. I hope everybody at least get at new outfit because it would suck if Noel is the only one. At least make this game a new breath.

  • I love Tsubaki. Also, once you go black………. =P

    (Yeah, I went there)

    • Bentan

       once you go black, you go GIGANTIC!

    • Once you go black, you go deaf.

  • Why couldn’t my Tao get new digs too?

    Actually, nevermind she’s already so adorable and lovable!~

    Tsubaki: One pizza to go!

    • ThatAzure

      *Tsubaki delivers pizza to Jin’s house*
      *Jin opens the door*
      Jin: “Don’t tell me… Tsubaki?!”

      • andref

         couldn’t resist
        Tsubaki: J..J.Jin-kun pizza delivery
        Tsubaki:………………….(lost in own Jin delusions)
        Jin: sighs and drops money at her feet before slamming the door in her face

  • Black is the new…black. Wait, what am I saying? O_o

  • cedx123

    I still hope that condemnation wings is still her theme its one of the reasons that got me into Tsubaki.

  • Maia Kasoya

    If you noticed, there are some differences between her Chrono Phantasma artwork and her Continuum Shift (story mode) artwork.
    I wonder why…
