Aksys first announced BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend was coming to North America at E3 under its tentative title, Continuum Shift II Plus. At that time the game was only announced for PlayStation Vita. The publisher confirmed they will release the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions too.
When? The same day BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend is available for PlayStation Vita. In Japan, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend is a launch title for the system. Sony Computer Entertainment America have not set a release date for the handheld in North America.
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend adds Relius Clover as a new playable character along with the DLC characters from the previous game. All of the characters have been tweaked and rebalanced for Extend. Arc System Works also added team battles for online fights, new story scenarios, and Unlimited Mars mode for players seeking a challenge.
