Aksys took to the PlayStation Blog to announce BlazBlue: Central Fiction’s limited edition and temporarily free launch DLC. People in North America will not only have the option of getting a bundle that includes art, a figure and music, but will also be able to add Es to their game for free for the first two weeks after launch.
The BlazBlue: Central Fiction Limited Edition starts with a PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 copy of the game. It then adds a Noel Vermillion Nendoroid Petite figure made with input from Toshimichi Mori, BlazBlue’s creator. People also get a 100-page, hardcover art book and 10-track BlazBlue Song Interlude III soundtrack CD.
This isn’t the first time a Nendoroid Petite has been offered with a BlazBlue limited edition. The limited edition of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma included a Rachel Alucard Nendoroid Petite, complete with her familiars Nago and Gii.
Details on Es, who will be BlazBlue: Central Fiction’s temporarily free DLC character after launch, were also released. She’s the lead heroine from XBlaze – Code: Embryo, the visual novel prequel, and acts as the Guardian of the Azure. She’s described as a “straightforward beat stick” and can improve her own special moves. She has a Crest Arts drive that increases her attack and causes time lags.
BlazBlue: Central Fiction will come to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in Japan on October 6, 2016. It will arrive in North America in November 2016. Europe will see the game before 2016 ends.
