BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma will be available in March 2014 in North America, Aksys Games have announced.

 

The limited edition of the game will cost $80 and as previously reported, it will include a 40-page art book, official soundtrack CD, and a nendoroid figurine of Rachel Alucard.

 

Additionally, Aksys say the game will also come with two North American exclusives, but have not specified just what these are yet.

  • Combo

    Unfortunately (or fortunately for some), one of the North American exclusives is probably this.

    • Keko

      Tsubaki would buy 10 copies.

      • Arcana Wiz

        please… she would buy all avaiable for “research” purporses

    • Hinataharem

      Pillow for Nii-san edition

    • http://www.unit03.net blackraen

      I’d be pretty okay with the Hazama/Terumi one. Jin is too yandere.

  • Xaltmas

    Even though I’m still a little bitter about this not coming to 360, this is still a day one purchase.

    I’m curious as to what the other two items are.

    • midgard229

      no one plays fighters on xbox sadly, its why dead or alive had to go multiplat.

      • TheAquacharger

        As EVO goes Xbox and most US tourneys use 360′s for the consoles. I had to buy a 360 stick just to be able to go to tourneys.

    • Kronos

      The controls suck for fighters on the 360. Everyone I know who at least attempts fighting games say the same mostly because that excuse for a d-pad on it (not saying the 360 is bad mind you)

  • Darkrise

    Oh well, I still have classes so I guess I can afford to wait.

  • Linhua

    … right before my birthday huh… well alright then.

  • urbanscholar

    I’m there. It’ll be a tough hill to climb online though given the months between the JPN release

  • Keko

    Dark Souls II and Chronophantasma on the same month. Goodbye, wallet!

    • Luis Camargo

      Dark Wallet II Cashphantasma.

      All the money you have is an illusion.

      Q1/2014 will kill everyone’s wallet.

      • Ferrick

        Praise the Azure!

    • Servant BerserCAR

      You know… you have two kidneys. ( ¬‿¬)

    • Anthony Birken

      Shut up and take my money….take all my money…~

  • Shinobikens

    Still waiting to be able to pre-order the limited edition on amazon….may never get to…

    • Shinobikens

      Might as well ask. Has anybody pre-ordered the limited edition yet, like does anybody even offer it yet like Gamestop or anything?

  • Crevox

    Glad I imported, localization for BlazBlue has only gotten slower and slower

  • Shippoyasha

    A full nendoroid? If so, that is a great deal!

    • Arcana Wiz

      yep

    • http://www.unit03.net blackraen

      No it’s not a full nendoroid, it’s a petite version. It’s still pretty cool though, I like my Rachel. Here’s a pic with her next to my standard Asuna nendoroid.

      • mike dickson

        ewww asuna

        • RichyGaming

          Yay Asuna

          • mike dickson

            nice prinny avatar dood !

          • RichyGaming

            Thanks, dood! Made it myself! Although I needed to look at some pictures for help on the beak and eyes since they are different from a penguin.

          • mike dickson

            huh the more u khow so did u draw it by hand or did u use a drawing pad ?

          • RichyGaming

            I did it by hand and then I scanned it so I can trace everything using paint app in my computer. I don’t like making drawings or sketches using the computer very much. I’m much more comfortable drawing it myself, I also don’t like drawing pad though. The editing and coloring is awesome though, dood.

          • mike dickson

            agreed the editing always makes pics cleaner

      • Göran Isacson

        … On the other hand, this kind of matches Rachel since she’s… well… “vertically challenged”, so to speak.

  • 栗場 江理久

    Next year is going to be sen-SATIONAL!! :D

  • TheExile285

    Looking forward to grabbing that LE ^______________________^

    • Arcana Wiz

      me too! Celica in the cover is calling me…. and the other two fillers with no breast too…

  • Luckeh

    360 please (; ̄ェ ̄)

  • Tyler Beale

    My best bet for those 2 exclusives are Terumi and Kokonoe. Well, exclusive to those who don’t want to pay $10 more ($5 each) than the $80 they’re already paying.

    EDIT: Okay, so I found out what those two exclusives are, courtesy of ANN (Anime News Network). They are NOT the two DLC characters. Instead, they are…

    –A FIGHTING MOVES POSTER – The BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Limited Edition will include a reference poster with all of the playable characters and their moves! Just for the US!

    –TRUELY EXCLUSIVE SPECIAL FEATURE BLU-RAY – Featuring interviews with Toshimichi Mori, creator of BlazBlue, the Special Features disc will take you behind the scenes of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma!* There may be some other unannounced goodies on the disc as well, so stay tuned for more information!

    *I take it there are spoilers behind the scenes…

    • Herok♞

      Koknonoe maybe but they will probably have Terumi be dlc for everyone.

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        Still, Terumi was initially released as a first print thing in Japan. Anyone who bought a first print copy, or limited edition copy, or got the digital version before a certain date, got Terumi.

    • cedx123

      Ok now I really like the sound of those 2 exclusives a video of the working behind chronophantasma sounds wonderful. Not so sure what the poster will look like though.

  • ZnTxn

    Mildly off-topic but I have to ask, which BlazBlue characters have nendoroids?
    I always wanted to have a chibi Arakune on my desk.

    • doubleO7

      I did a quick Google search and only found Noel, Rachel and Ragna. They really should do more. I’d also love an Arakune nendoroid as well as Taokaka.

    • BalmungX

      I wanted a Hakumen,a Bang or even a valkenhayn one

  • doubleO7

    Oh man, I’m a sucker for a good CE. But… I think I’ll just wait for the inevitable Chrono Phantasma EXTEND.

  • Eder García

    i don’t have a PS3 but this game and possibly Persona 5 will make me buy one instead of a WiiU #SorryNinty

    • Herok♞

      As a proud PS3 and Wiiu owner I have to say get the ps3 you can get one for around $200 if you look well enough.

      • Arcana Wiz

        yep, even more if he likes japanese stuff, but i would recommend start saving little by little to get a wii u sometime, they have some gems, and now with platinum games….

    • r0gamer940

      black friday bundle. The last of us and the new batman game for 200 bucks

  • Stewart Mogg

    I kinda wish one of the exclusives is Jubei DLC for free.

    • Arcana Wiz

      i kinda wanted that they made a poll for the next DLCs…. Jubei would win, but i am curious to see who would be in the following positions…
      and i really hope for a Phantom and jubei DLCs sometime(i really think that they will be announced together) and a saya one too.

  • nororu

    a port to playstation 4 please.

  • Fidelis

    I feel like I already knew it was coming out in March…Lucky guess or was this announced before?

  • Twilleppac

    Please let one of the exclusives be a Tony Oliver voice pack for Bang Shishigami…

  • Arcana Wiz

    Well it gives me time to get the money…. this CE is calling me… and curious to see what these exclusives are….

  • Anime10121

    Hiya everybody! Its Dr. Nick! And according to Dualshockers, the two exclusive items are a “special features blu ray” and a “movie guide”~ =D

    http://www.dualshockers.com/2013/11/05/release-window-and-pricing-details-released-for-blazblue-chrono-phantasma/

    • Justin Grant

      actually “move guide” that was a typo.

  • Luis Ibal

    2014 will be a busy year….

  • RazeXI

    I really hope this eventually ports to PS4 :<

  • Go2hell66

    lolwut we only getting it in march!? what have they been doing all this time???

    • Twilleppac

      Probably dubbing all the dialogue and translating the text, the story is like 20 hours long.

      • Neppygear

        Yuri Lowenthal (Amane) already confirmed that all the dub work is done.

        • Twilleppac

          Well then I dunno, There’s probably some reason.

  • Keine

    any news on the vita release??

  • r0gamer940

    where can I pre-order that collectors edition? I can’t find it anywhere

  • Tatsuya Fabre

    Why? I mean the Japanese version already has dual audio.

    Well, have fun in four months guys!

  • Arrngrim

    That headline pic on the Siliconera home page really got my attention!

  • Kornelious

    I really hope that we get the same sexy packaging that the original got :)

  • midgard229

    makes no sense how long its taking, must be the voice acting or something. but for a 4 month wait, it better have the dlc for free

  • Neppygear

    Pre-orders when? I’m having lots of funsies with the Japanese version, but I’ll also be getting this one for the LE extras and, of course, the story. That is, unless Zen United announce the same (or a better) LE along with a reasonably fast release date, which, let’s be reasonable, is -so- not gonna happen.

    • All Fiction

      >Zen United
      >fast

      Pick one

      By the way, it is Arc System Works Europe that publishes Blazblue in Europe now (which is in fact a big part of Zen’s staff), and even by being the official European branch of ASW, they are even slower than Aksys that just shares the same parent company with ASW Japan.

      When a niche publisher manages to publish a game faster than the godamn official branch, there is a BIG problem

      • Neppygear

        I thought ASW Europe was just what they were calling themselves now. Anyway, them being slow as shit was kinda what I was implying, and one of the main reasons why I’m just not going to bother with the EU release this time.

        The only time (the ONLY TIME) they ever released a game on time was CS Extend, and that was probably only because it was a Vita launch title.

        Truly tragic.

  • Jake_Indiman

    SOLD! Reserving my copy now!

  • artemisthemp

    Still haven’t been able to find this Limited Edition in NA

  • RichyGaming

    Its times like this that I wish I didn’t even discover anything CP related until this fall.

  • Ben Sylvia

    Too bad I don’t have a PS3, and have to wait on a hypothetical Vita release.

    Edit: Although it is quite tempting to pre order that just for the soundtrack CD.
