BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Hits The Beach On Vita

By Spencer . February 24, 2014 . 1:20am


Arc System Works is bringing BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma to PlayStation Vita. Why double dip? The Vita version has a new island storyline that takes place on an island.


Ragna the Bloodedge, Kagura Mutsuki, Noel Vermillion, and Celica Mercury have beach costumes too.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma for PlayStation Vita also has a recap of the events from Calamity Trigger and Continuum Shift… with a little twist. There are hidden gag routes players added to the PlayStation Vita version.

Multiplayer has been changed for the Vita version though. Online lobbies won’t work on BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma for Vita. Vita players will still be able to fight in ranked and player match modes. The upcoming arcade patch from mid-March will be built in the Vita version as well. BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma for Vita comes out on April 24 in Japan. Aksys has the game slated for summer in North America.

    Ha ha oh man, that header image. Much fanservice. So racy angles. Show me some of those hawt trapezoid shapes boys and girls.

    Also are those three Ragnas fighting ONE ice car?

    • Mr_SP

      Yes, yes they are. It’s from Jin’s gag reel in Continuum Shift… so I have no idea what it’s doing here.

      • Ferrick

        it’s the same beach as the new beach scene ? XD

      • Arcana Drill

        sorry i couldnt help it XD

  • SHSL Big Bro

    this is probably the best news

  • ArmoredBoar

    The arcade patch is coming out in May, though. The western console release is coming out in March.

  • Wrengear

    All I’m waiting for is that Celica as a playable character announcement. :3

    • Rafael Martines

      I wonder how different her playstyle will be from Carl, since Celica was the owner of Nirvana :P

      • Arcana Drill

        Well she is like a white mage, that focus on defense and healing spells, and with a doll like nirvana/ignis she could be a mix between relius and carl?

      • Anime10121

        Spoilers :(

        • Arcana Drill

          oh this is very old news, i can see why he posted it without realizing the spoilers, this was confirmed years ago in the phase novels.

          • Anime10121

            Oh, never read those so I wouldnt know, I thought he was spoiling something revealed in Chronophantasma…

          • Arcana Drill

            well they will have a recap of the phase shift novels in CP, but it will be a quick review of the important events, so they will reveal that celica was NOTSOPOILERSANYMORE nirvana owner to people that didnt read it yet. But wont focus so much in the relationship of the two like the novels. Sucks for us that are in the west :(

  • crimsonidol

    The header image is really great! :D

  • DemonShadowX

    Where’s Litchi?…… And Makoto?….. And Kokonoe?

    “The Vita version has a new island storyline that takes place on an island.”

    Which makes much more sense than the original concept of an island story that doesn’t take place on an island. ;)

  • nick_54g

    im guessing online will be just like extend on vita then, eh i guess thats fine though i want filters to get rid of 0 delay and stylish players please

  • Pyrofrost

    >>The Vita version has a new island storyline that takes place on an island.

    I see, but is this storyline actually part of the main story, or is it just an extra piece of story that has no bearing on the actual plot of the franchise?

    • Arcana Drill

      probably the second option, i think its like a extra gag reel.

      • Pyrofrost

        Yeah, that’s what I’m kinda expecting. It’s definitely not enough to make me double dip; but I’m wondering if it would be a better value just to move my preorder to the Vita version.

  • Arcana Drill

    I wanna this game, and btw i loved the vita cover. Wonder when celica will be playable.

  • Morningstar

    “a new island storyline that takes place on an island.”

    • I wouldn’t say it is a typo. Nowadays, things aren’t always as advertised. One day, it might say that the new story is about Cougars… until you find out that it doesn’t have ANYTHING to do with the feline kind…

    • Anthony Birken

      This comment made my day~ xD

  • mockturtle

    Those boys… in those swimsuits… I… I…!

  • Oh my, Celica looks damn hot…Sorry Noel…

  • Minos

    Weird… for a game like Blazblue with such rich history this scenario has a thin plot….

    • Is anything too weird for the sake of fanservice though? To be honest, yes, to me. But what people won’t do to justify/excuse it. . .

  • TheExile285

    Y no Makoto, ASW? ;_;

  • Eder García

    yo teh beech spirit still alive dawg!!

    • SerendipityX

      I was drawn here by those glorious abs, I don’t even play BB. *q*

      • Arcana Drill

        One reason to begin ;D
        i think we know someone who gladly would help you with it….

      • Lol, same here. I only ever played the first and somewhat keep up on news just because Ragna is pretty sexy. This is the icing on the (beef)cake though. ♥q♥
