BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Is Available On Steam

By Ishaan . February 14, 2014 . 2:20pm

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is available for purchase on Steam. The game was released today, and comes with a digital soundtrack containing 42 tracks from the game.


And yes, this isn’t Continuum Shift or any of the other updated versions of the game, but on the bright side, it only costs $9.99. (Or $8.99 if you buy it soon.)

    How different is this one from Extend and CP? I want to get it just because PC ^^

    • Freakmasta

      It’s A LOT different.

    • Herok♞

      This one is a broken broken game:

    • Arcana Drill

      CT was the first game in the series, CS is the second game (extend is a revision of the second game) and CP is the third … a lot of broken things like herok said, only 12 characters (CP has 26), the sequels are more balanced, more music, better sprites models, better art (IMO), and this version (PC) doesnt have online.

  • Lalum


  • AlteisenX

    There is no online mode just so people know.

    • Eilanzer


    • Fox

      Wait, what?

      Why would anyone buy a fighting game without online multiplayer? Why would anyone SELL a fighting game without online multiplayer? Was Nintendo involved?

      • Andrew Norris

        Because the CT PC release’s netplay was through Games For Windows Live and the company that licensed to release it again probably couldn’t be bothered to try to put new netcode on it, seeing as support for the game on GFWL ended a while ago

    • Sayorain

      I made this mistake for buying it. Not worth unless you want the OST.

  • This is on Steam. GG Xrd is gonna be on Next Gen consoles, which should be easy to bring over to the PC. I foresee GG Xrd on Steam, and that’d be neat.

    • Gyro Zeppeli

      I don’t really expect Xrd on PC, Arc System Works has just been putting their old PC ports on Steam lately. They did it with GG Isuka a couple weeks ago, and I’m expecting them to do the same with GGXX #R.

      • #r would be nice, I think the PS3 in Europe still doesn’t have that >.>

    • Cazar

      >which should be easy to bring over to the PC

      Compared to BlazBlue, not a all.

      • Suzaku

        BlazBlue is developed on PC hardware, and the arcade boards it runs on are all PC hardware-based. Same for the next gen consoles and Xrd.

    • Shady Shariest

      Actually… In next gen console development… The games are ported to consoles FROM pc, not the other way around :3

    • megaten666

      As far as I know, GGXrd will be released on current gen consoles too.

  • Bablioteca

    Probably worth it for the soundtrack alone, it’s like it comes with a bonus game.

    The game has been on PC for years though, plus it’s a crappy port to top it off. I’m guessing the game was delisted because I specifically remember seeing it on the Steam page a couple of years back, guess they brought it back up.
    One thing for sure is that both Aksys and Arc System Works want us to buy this so PC can get a port of CP or GG Xrd, then they better give us something way better than this. No online is a deal breaker by many people, especially on the PC front.

    • Brion Valkerion

      Game was never on steam.

      Either way this is most likely just a port because the newer version, and hopefully Guilty Gear Xrd, are going to have PC versions. For BB I could understand, because it is letting people play the story mode, GG though, specifically Ikusa, most likely just a quick cash in on a game that has been floating around for years, ala FF7 and 8 getting re-released to.

  • PlatinumMad

    Keep in mind the publsher of this neither ArcSys or Aksys.
    It’s some random publisher, same with Isuka.

  • Mental

    The reason as to why it’s on Steam is probably due to GFWL shutting down soon. Which would also explain why the game lacks online.

  • DesmaX

    No online mode, no buy

  • Personally, Calamity Trigger has been my favourite of the series, I feel like it was most fun back then and that the sequels, though be it becoming more balanced, were more serious toned… plus “ooh double gooold buursssts!”

    Anywho, it’s 10 months early, but here’s hoping Continuum Shift comes to Steam as well soon enough, as well as more Arc System Work titles :D

  • Doctor Nebula

    Lack of Platinum the Trinity makes it hard to go back.

  • HellMuT

    For what purpose?

  • Shady Shariest

    Oh my god.
    edit: *Reads comments*
    -_-‘ Okay. A bad port. Wellp.

  • MrJechgo

    Not my favorite version TBH…

  • Fitzkrieg


  • I bought it knowing about the lack of Online anyways. It’s a fun game even without online, and I hope buying the PC ports may help with getting more Guilty Gear and Blazblue on PC. I have to say I do like that there’s no GFWL, though lack of online is sort of sad.

  • CirnoLakes

    Rachel Alucard is now on Steam.

    And that makes me happy.

  • darkbartz

    So, this is the only way to experience CT’s story mode if you don’t have it for PS3 or PSP huh. If you think about it in this way, it’s not that bad. Also, the Euro’s boxart for CT PSP is kinda scary as it stares at me while I type this out.

    • You can also download it for Vita via PSN, which is what I did. It’s 10 bucks there too IIRC.
