Famitsu has the scoop on BlazBlue: Continuum Shift’s downloadable content plans and introduced Makoto Nanaya in this week’s issue. She’s a brand new character and standing left of Noel in the screenshot.
Fans craving a character with a puffy tail can download Makoto on August 5. v-13- who was replaced by Λ-11- in BlazBlue: Continuum Shift will also appear as downloadable content at some point. Key details like how much each character will cost were not announced in the magazine.
We’ll ping Aksys about Makoto and see if they have anymore details. BlazBlue: Continuum Shift comes out in North America on July 27, a few weeks after the game comes to consoles in Japan.
Update: Aksys posted a FAQ confirming Makoto needs to be purchased. Neither publisher announced how much she costs, though.
