BlazBlue Chronophantasma Shows Off Its Cruelest Character

By Spencer . June 26, 2013 . 2:41am

blazbluechr-00Yuki Terumi, the true form of Hazama, is playable for the first time in BlazBlue: Chronophantasma. He can use his Force Eater drive skill to siphon Heat Gauge meter from other players. This will give Yuki a chance to do one of his four Distortion Drives. Yuki’s overdrive Nightmare Reaper enhances the effect of his drive attack and the power of his Distortion Drives.

 

BlazBlue: Chronophantasma continues the game’s plot with a focus on the Six Heroes. Yuki Terumi was once part of this group along with Valkenhayn, Trinity, and Nine. Celica, Nine’s younger sister that specializes in healing magic, shows up in the BlazBlue games for the first time. Celica is the main character in BlazBlue: Phase 0 and Chronophantasma will cover some of the novel like when Celica meets Ranga the Bloodedge. BlazBlue: Chronophantasma will link the novels and game story together through Celica who is searching for the Ikaruga in Chronophantasma.

 

BlazBlue: Chronophantasma will be available in Japan on October 24 and is slated for release in North America early next year.

  • Crevox

    So I’m guessing the screenshots are of the past because of Nine / Bloodedge / Platinum

    • http://www.unit03.net blackraen

      The assumption is that with the “focus on the six heroes” there probably will be a good amount of flashback moments in this story release.

      Very nice that they’ll be covering some of the novel and comic material that hasn’t been in the games previously.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    That Terumi.O_o We really need enemies which is cruel like a monster again.^_^

  • Go2hell66

    anyone know if/when the new characters will be getting an arcade release, i want to see some match footage already

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      Probably not til after the console release.

    • AkuLord3

      Not going happen until probably this hits consoles, that’s how it works before (like with KOFXIII)

  • https://twitter.com/GaleGlory89 KiQun

    Terumi is only available for pre-order. I wonder if by some chance this scenario and playability will be DLC. But it will be in contrast with what ASW mentioned about no character DLC.

    • Go2hell66

      he is unlockable in the game, he’s not dlc
      pre-order and you’ll be able to play him right away without having to unlock him

      • https://twitter.com/GaleGlory89 KiQun

        So glad I was misinformed.

        • Alexander Marquis Starkey

          It’s more like early details were mistaken.

      • TokkanRAM

        Famitsu article states in order play as him, you need to either:
        1. Preorder the game.
        2. Purchase him as DLC (release date and price TBA).

        As opposed to Kagura, who has been revealed to be unlocked by completing the True Ending.

        A means of unlocking Terumi via normal gameplay, if one does in fact exist, has not been revealed.

        • Go2hell66

          im going to guess that famitsu is wrong? unless arc was lieing about the dlc

          • TokkanRAM

            Mori is by his own admission a liar. Also, I’ve looked around and it’s not just Famitsu making this statement. Dengeki, 4Gamer and GPara are also saying the same.

        • Tyler Beale

          “A means of unlocking Terumi via normal gameplay, if one does in fact exist, has not been revealed.”

          Good. I’ll find out myself by playing the game.

  • refrain

    Didn’t Cecila die? Or that’s a Phase 0 flash back scene? But that scene in Ikaruga she’s talking about Ragna, not Bloodedge…

    • TokkanRAM

      She only knew him as “Ragna”… Bloodedge is just a name that particular version of Ragna told Jubei (and only Jubei) to remember him by.

      I could explain why Celica is alive in the present and as young as she was a 100 years ago, but that would be a massive spoiler.

      • MrTyrant

        One can guess easily why she is alive anyway. You already state that she is.

        • TokkanRAM

          My statement means nothing, a screenshot clearly shows her pondering to herself that Ragna is somewhere in Ikaruga while at the Rail Station in Yabiko. Ikaruga and the 6 hierarchical cities that it is made up of (Ibukido, Yabiko, Kazamotsu, Wadatsumi, Akitsu-A and Akitsu-B) did not exist when she was as young as depicted in that screenshot.

      • refrain

        I wonder where I can read that phase 0 novel. Japanese is okay too. But I wonder if I haven’t read the novel, can I understand this game well? I have only played CT and CSE

        • TokkanRAM

          From what I can gather, the “Six Heroes” scenario in CP’s story mode is supposed to be somewhat of a retelling of the Phase Shift novels (or at the very least, Phase 0).

        • andref

          Bakatsuki has only translated a few of the chapters of phase 0 so….

  • TokkanRAM

    “Celica who is searching for the Ikaruga in Chronophantasma.”

    Correction: you mean searching for Ragna in Ikaruga in Chronophantasma.

  • Abyan Haidar

    Dat Konoe R. Mercury….. well how’s that become “Nine”?

    • Suzaku

      She’s one of the Ten Sages of the Magic Guild. They’re all named for their position in the group. Seven and Eight both appeared in the novels, too.

  • Dominic St-Jacques

    2014 seems so faraway now…but glad we finally get to see Nine !

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 水木

      Time will fly by with all the games releasing

  • Kaihedgie

    Not every day you get to see Terumi mad as hell

  • TheExile285

    **** YES!!!

  • http://amc9988.deviantart.com/ amc99

    If only the novels are translated to english…

    • colorblindnightmare

      This is one of biggest desires of the series. I would buy them all in a heart beat. This games cannon is too damn interesting.

  • zferolie

    They say it will focus on the 6 heroes, yet Nine, and Jubei are still not Playable :|

  • Damarius Wingfield

    Spread your wings Terumi.

  • Sango

    Just when you thought Hazama couldn’t get any crazier, he does.

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      *couldn’t

      But yeah!

      • Sango

        Fixed*

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Still waiting for an anime for the series.

    • TokkanRAM

      http://blazblue-am.jp/

      Don’t worry, that’s happening.

      • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

        Good, good (Rubs hands together)

        Now I can see my Noel in even more glorious action =^_^=

        • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 水木

          Only BlazBlue characters though

          • Tyler Beale

            Noel IS a BlazBlue character?

          • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 水木

            I didn’t say Noel

          • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

            I see.

            P.S. Nice avatar change by the way.

          • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 水木

            What I’m hoping is the anime does well enough so they can continue the story. Would be super awesome if they were able to do something like the Valkyria Chronicle anime

            Thanks ^ ^ I got it from the Toukiden comic cover. Sucks that it’s only going to be on Sony’s e-reader though

  • Luke Blackwood
