BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Will Not Have Any DLC Characters, Roster Fully Revealed

By Spencer . June 12, 2013 . 11:10am

bbchro-18 Another topic BlazBlue producer Toshimichi Mori and Siliconera talked about was the roster in BlazBlue: Chronophantasma. Arc System Works revealed all of the characters that will be in the PlayStation 3 version. There will be no characters or scenarios sold as downloadable content, but Chronophantasma will have some DLC. They are planning to sell extra colors and voice packs.

 

There are six new characters in Chronophantasma. Azrael, Amane, Bullet, and Izayoi were introduced in the arcade release. Kagura Mutsuki and Yuuki Terumi are brand new for BlazBlue: Chronophantasma on PlayStation 3.

 

Mori also said that the entire BlazBlue story is 80% complete with the release of BlazBlue: Chronophantasma.

    Terumi’s in this?

    Oh sh*t.

  • Linhua

    … wow so… is that it .-. All the characters have already been revealed and they have no plans for Character DLC…?

    … but… but-but… Kokonoe… T^T

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Leafy_Cam Leafhopper

      She doesn’t fight anymore.

      • Linhua

        *Profound Sadness*

        • The Watcher

          Abandon all hope

      • MrJechgo

        She fought before?

        • http://twitter.com/#!/Leafy_Cam Leafhopper

          They alluded to her fighting before in CS.

  • Go2hell66

    No need for dlc characters in the first release, they can just release chrono phantasma extend a month later if needed :p

  • Hatsuaki

    This is both good… and possibly bad. Are they saying that people who won’t pre-order won’t be able to get Terumi as DLC? Then how come Aksys mentioned there’d be 2 DLC characters?

    • AkuLord3

      They never said Terumi or Kagura were DLC, Console Exclusives (until they add them in the arcade version cuz that would be mean)

      • Hatsuaki

        I’m just saying DLC because apparently Terumi is unlocked through a DLC code that comes with the game if you pre-ordered it. If we’re really not having any DLC characters at all, that’d exclude the possibility of him being sold as a character on the PS Store for those who didn’t pre-order, no?

        • http://momentsreprieve.com/index/ Aushria

          Maybe the code just allows you to unlock him through the DLC code rather than through normal gameplay?

          • DemonicX

            Most likely this. You could purchase Mu quickly through DLC if you didn’t want to unlock her normally in Continuum Shift. I’m guessing that if you don’t want to complete the Six Heroes story in CP, you could just purchase Terumi through DLC.

    • http://nisekami.deviantart.com/ NiseKami

      It’s probably going to be the same as Mu. She can be unlocked through DLC or completing the story.

  • DanteJones

    So no new characters until the Extended version then. :p

  • Kenneth Richardson

    It was stated verbatim that the full roster has already been revealed? I’m concerned because the press release stated: ” Chrono Phantasma will introduce new characters, bringing the roster list to 26!” Although the total number of revealed characters – including Terumi and Kagura – is only 25. That leaves one fighter unaccounted for.

    • TheExile285

      JUBEI!!!!

      Oh, who am I kidding >_>

      • Dominic St-Jacques

        Watch Mori troll everyone by making that 26th character Linhua.

        • TheExile285

          Linhua is a hot little tail so I’d be OK with that :P

          ….

          Of course I’m kidding (not really)

          Seriously though, I’d prefer Celica

  • http://nisekami.deviantart.com/ NiseKami

    It’s not FULLY revealed if there are 26 characters confirmed ;P

  • Kaihedgie

    This isn’t the whole roster. There’s one more left

  • ivanchu77

    Poor Kokonoe

  • fireemblembeast

    “Playstation 3 version”, huh? …As opposed to a different version???
    Anyways, I’m glad they’re giving us all of the characters.

    • KonjikinoSora

      As opposed to the Arcade version.

      • fireemblembeast

        Yeah, but that’s already out so I don’t see how that would be relevant.

  • AkuLord3

    Yeah guys one fighter is missing…maybe because….ITS A SURPRISE! : O

  • https://www.facebook.com/OperationHotblood?ref=hl HeroOfGames16

    I’d love to see Jubei and Kokonoe joining the fray. Those two have played a quite active part within the Blazblue-verse, so they deserve a spot on the fighting stage as well imo.

  • Mirai

    I reckon the hidden character will be the imperator saya

  • MrJechgo

    6? Aw… I was expecting more familiar faces, like Kokonoe, Jubei and Phantom :(
    Aw well, maybe for the 4th and final game ^_^

    • TheExile285

      Saving the best for last.

      • MrJechgo

        Hope so. Point is that CP offers a great opportunity to have Jubei, Kokonoe and Phantom as PCs, since there’s a story mode path about the Six Heroes. However, 2 arcade endings seem to contradict a Jubei/Kokonoe vs Phantom encounter: Hakumen’s and Platinum’s. Phantom saves Platinum from a sudden “not-down-yet” attack from Hazama and both teleport into a forest. Furthermore, Phantom doesn’t run away and is standing face-to-face with Platinum. Hakumen encounters Phantom as he’s about to attack Hazama. Did Hakumen face Phantom and free her before she saves Platinum? Who knows… but that’s a possible outcome.

  • Sergio Briceño

    I wonder if a collaboration between BB and GG will ever be possible. Axl could, I don’t know, travel to BB’s timeline or something. It would be so cool. Anything with Axl would be cool… Sigh… The new GG can’t come soon enough…

    • Solomon_Kano

      They said they’ll consider a crossover once BlazBlue’s story is finished. So we’ve got at least one more game to go before that happens.

  • Combo

    All the characters have been revealed, yet there are 26. There are no DLC characters, yet Terumi is a preorder bonus. Clearly someone is lying, but who?

  • XiaomuArisu

    Good

    the complainers can now stop complainingXD

    • Testsubject909

      Do you think that’ll stop them?

      • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

        They’ll complain that no DLC characters means they won’t get to play Kokonoe / Jubei~.

      • XiaomuArisu

        Of course not!XD

  • glenngunnerzero

    I don’t know why I love their fighters anymore, but even I know even with no DLC we will probably see a Super BB:CP Extended Reloaded Plus edition in another year. So them not having a DLC is fine because they don’t ever leave their series alone for more than 2 years anymore unless it’s a court issue.

    • http://papped.webatu.com papped

      yep… that pretty much sums it up.

    • TheExile285

      Usually they do that with the portable releases so I personally am looking forward to that

  • Solomon_Kano

    80%? Fuck. That means I can’t have my BB/GG crossover yet, since they said they’ll consider that once BB wraps up. Ah well, more BB is nice and GG is back, so I’ll settle.

  • http://www.youtube.com/Lyonharvestmoonfan Eduardo Rocha

    I’m not trying to sound like a mad fanboy, but I won’t get this game if there’s no Jubei and/or Kokonoe in it :/ But for some reason I think they’re just lying, they’ll end releasing an extended version with more characters, or so I hope.

    • AnimeRemix

      You seriously wouldn’t get this game just because two characters aren’t in? What about the continuation of the story? Or trying out the six new characters we actually are getting?

      • http://www.youtube.com/Lyonharvestmoonfan Eduardo Rocha

        What I’m saying is that I’ll just wait for the extend version and see if they add Kokonoe or something. In ohter words, I’m not getting this on day 1.

        • AnimeRemix

          Ah, alright. Much more clearer for someone like me to understand. XD

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    I’m getting this for the new hit sfx. I bet everyone has already heard it lol.
    Smack!
    It’s cool that this is still 2D sprites while Guilty Gear isn’t. I don’t know why, but I don’t feel comfortable playing Capcom’s new 2D fighters that are using 3D graphics… maybe that’ll change with GG

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    80% huh… does XBlaze count towards the story, and if so how much further does it push to its completion.

    • Dominic St-Jacques

      if XBlaze counts, that means we’ll probable have a Chronophantasma 2/extend with a few additional scenarios. Like the NOL Academy and sector 7 stuff we got in CS2

    • KnifeAndFork

      What does XBlaze have to do with this

  • Carabutifarra

    NO DLC Characters!!! Thanks ASW T_T

  • TheExile285

    DLC color packs? I hope its reasonable. I thought Terumi and that other character were DLC. I’m perfectly fine with them not ^_^

  • Quinton Guilty Simmons

    Saya is the 26th character

  • Tonton Ramos

    Okay then I will buy the Extend version of Chrono Phantasma in the PS4 instead.

  • Oni123

    I’m glad characters are not going to be dlc. i liked the idea of the voices from CS but they were pretty pricey =( i hope they’ll bring the price down for Chronophantasma.

  • Vash bane

    already telling us about a new game and we haven’t even got this one yet
    awesome

  • Twilightlicious

    :c no jubei and kokonoe again u_u

  • anthony apduhan

    How could this be?! Blazblue Chrono Phantasma states that it will conclude the subplot of the Six heroes SIX HEROES! Jubei is in there also Nine and Kokonoe! and yet you didn’t make them playable… why Mori WHY?!

  • Tonton Ramos

    What happens if the PS3 life cycle will be dead in 2015

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

    I’m not even going to dignify that with a formal response. Get out.
