BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma On Vita Has A New Scenario On The Beach

By Eugene . January 30, 2014 . 4:30pm

Arc System Works are porting BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma to the PlayStation Vita. Not only does it share DLC with the PlayStation 3 version, it’ll also contain arcade updates to the game.


To help entice players to pick up this on-the-go version, though, there’s also the addition of an all-new scenario. Famitsu reports that there will be an all new comedy route featuring Ragna, Noel, Kagura and Celica, right on the beach and in swimsuits. The below screenshots are from the Vita port.

  • Romancer Ecclesia

    About time :3

  • Michael Connell

    Why do I have a sneaking suspicion Jin’s going to crash this beach party? lol

  • ReidHershel

    I’ll see what else the Vita version offers, wish it was cross buy ;_;

  • dark-kyon

    no rachel,wtf arksystem you can not have beach without lolis in sukumizu.

    • Yan Zhao

      Seconded. I demand Rachel in this story route!!

  • John Diamond

    not worth it imo. I’d still get it anyways on the vita…

  • Pdugna

    just need a english localization date and to see the game work on motion on the Vita hopefully as smooth as BBCSEX

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    Why would BlazBlue need a beach sequence? FFS The one in Free! appeared halfway through the show (Which is kind of weird considering what it is).

    • Ferrick

      because why not ? (also past BB games had beach sequences too, search up “island of rankings”)

      • Nightmare637


      • Juan Andrés Valencia

        I somehow forgot it’s important to have beach episodes on games as well :P

        • Ferrick

          yep :P

  • Eder García

    da beech!

    • Triplicity

      C…collusion on da beech…?

  • fireemblembeast

    …why does this have to be announced before the ps3 version releases here…? >_>;
    I ordered the LE but…if this has LE and comes here I’d rather have it on handheld…

    • Tyler Beale

      If Aksys decides to delay to PS3 version in order to localize the PSV version as well, I’d be one happy panda.

      But that’ll never happen, as Arcsys will probably release it later this year.

      Hopefully someone at Aksys’ forums is posting about it.

  • Anzac

    Umi da!

  • Kornelious

    Ah, Noel my Waifu <3
    Hope there is cross-save :)

    • RichyGaming

      There is :)

      • Kornelious


  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    Sharing DLC? Does this mean that the likes of Kokonoe must still be purchased seperately?

  • 愛憎

    As long as I get to see my main, Arakune, looking moe in a bikini, I’m happy.

    • WyattEpp

      Nah, Wedding night. Like so:

      • 愛憎

        So lewd.

  • WyattEpp

    Is it time for another round of fanservice phone cards, then?

  • Neppygear

    If this gets released in English… I might consider buying Chronophantasma a third time.

    • Kornelious

      Don’t see why not. If Arc Systems is willing to give us what’s basically a better version of the Japanese collectors edition (Although I’ still waiting for Amazon to put the picture of “THE BOX” cover art before I’m fully sure) I say we’re a shoe in for the Vita version :)

  • And here are the men in swim trunks! Which is also important depending on who you ask.

    • colorblindnightmare

      Ragna the abs edge. Dayum he coulf give bang a run for his money. Also dat Kagura Swag.

    • Aisha Lee

      That Ragna swim wear looks amazing and kagura swimsuits is pretty cool too. Also why no Makoto,Bullet,Taokaka,Nu,and Litchi beach action!?

      • Time Sage

        More important if you ask me. Sexy male fan service gets ignored too often.

  • Anime10121


    Dat Bikini :Q

    I'm holding off on the PS3 version for the Vita one :P

  • tturtlejosh

    Shit so Ragna gets his own harem without Rachel?? This is BS

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    I don’t need to be enticed, I’m grabbing this the moment it comes out~.

  • SlickRoach

    Dat asstral tho

  • Minos

    Look at all that plot!

  • RagingTiger44

    So about that international release date…

  • Crevox

    of course it does

  • Ben Sylvia

    Not that I needed enticing, since the Vita is my only shot at playing it.
    Kagura’s a part of it? This ought to be fun.

  • DemonicX

    Exactly what kind of arcade updates? I have to admit though, I’m getting pretty tired of Arc System Works pulling these stunts..

    • Kayseur

      From what I remember reading on Famitsu, it’s mostly about characters balancing.

  • TheExile285

    I can’t wait for this. Still grabbing the PS3 version but being able to play CP anywhere like I could with CSE once I get the Vita version is gonna be so awesome.

    I’m a bit disappointed not to see Makoto & Rachel aren’t in this beach event. Ah well.

  • TheExile285

    Also, does anyone know if CP has unlockable art like CSE did?

    • XiaomuArisu

      you buy it with points like CSE

      • TheExile285

        Sweet ^_^

  • Nightmare637

    Got the LE on Pre order, and I’ll get this one as well.

  • Go2hell66

    (⌐■_■) dat ass tho…

    • DragKudo


    I demand this play when you play as Ragna.

  • leingod

    Totally getting this. I’m already missing new portable fighting games with DOA5U skipping the Vita and SF4U apparently not coming out for it at all.

  • artemisthemp

    Guess I should just wait for PS Vita version to release over here

  • Göran Isacson

    Awww, so instead of Arakune in a sling mankini, I just get Ragna in swimming trunks? I GUESS I can go with that, but… glorious troll-moment missed…

  • megaten666

    So… the big version won’t get this through an update, I guess :(

  • DarkLight

    Now bring the vita port over to the west…..

  • Ace Esper

    Damn. I might actually buy both versions…

  • Dust Huynh


  • Magicks

    *drools in excitement* I didn’t need any convincing to buy the portable version anyway… But this is very nice. ;DD**

  • kaotron

    Am I the only one who’s thinking that instead of making fanservice swimsuit dlc they could finally make Jubei a playable character.

    • buddyluv324

      They didnt say anything about the beach gag route being DLC

      • kaotron

        I guess I stand corrected then…

        But the fact is that the beach addon is just useless fanservice. Arcsystem works know that everyone just wants a playable jubei but instead we got was kokonoe and some sasuke uchia look-a-like

        • buddyluv324

          I would think that they are saving Jubei for last possibly in an upcoming sequel, being that he’s suppose to be one of the strongest characters in the series and all. Also Kokonoe was one of the characters that was requested along with Jubei.

  • EddieSuomi

    I have a question about BlazBlue Chronophantasma. I’m coming from Calamity Trigger and want to know if all the Continuum Shift Story content is included? Thanks:)

  • Bell

    Where is Amane in his androgynous swimwear?! Seriously, this beach scenario is just not fabulous enough!
