Feeling Chilly, Noel? Have Your Old Uniform Back In BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma

Noel Vermillion is getting herself a new/old costume as part of DLC available for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma. It surprisingly does not go the way of some such costumes by revealing more skin. Instead, it’s a return to the old with Noel picking up her old uniform (that has cloth covering her arms).

 

A nice touch is that developers Arc System Works have included a complete transition—so if you choose to plonk down some money for it and pick the costume to play, it will be reflected throughout the rest of the game. Special moves, and her story mode portraits, will all feature the alternate/older costume.

The costume is available from the PlayStation Store starting today. The US release will be out early 2014.

    English voices of Terumi, Azrael, Bullet, and Amane. And eh… I’m pretty fine with Noel new outfit, so I doubt I’ll be buying this just to have her old one. Nice for big fans of Noel.

    I don’t really miss the old costume all that much but hey, I’ll take it! Now people can use both versions! Now give me Young Ragna with hand to hand combat movesets (jk…. kinda)

  • ivanchu77

    I prefer her new costume to be honest, she looks much cuter with her hair down.

    and wow, it´s not rare to see alternate costumes in fighting games, but in a 2D games that uses sprites is a different story xD

      To be fair it’s just her old sprites so they didn’t really need to do anything other than make new artwork. They did start from scratch to make her new sprites though. The graphic staff were not pleased. XD

  • Ninastars

    I’m glad. I feel like the redesign is a bit generic and I loved her old design.

  • Luke Blackwood

    God, ArcSys REALLY love Noel don’t they? Way to go with your waifu Mori :X
