BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend will be ready right around when PlayStation Vita launches in PAL territories. Arc System Works Europe plan to release the expanded fighting game for Sony’s next handheld, PS3, and Xbox 360 in Q1 2012.
Relius Clover joins the roster this release and he fights with his puppet Ignis. Makoto, Valkenhayn, and Platinum the Trinity, which were released as downloadable content for Continuum Shift are on disc. Arc System Works also added Abyss mode from the portable versions, team battles (2v2, 3v3, and 2v4), and if you want a challenge the game has Unlimited Mars mode. BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend expands the game’s storyline too with 23 scenarios to play.
In Japan, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend is a Vita launch title set for December 17. Aksys has not set a release date for the game in North America, but it shouldn’t be too far away (or ahead!) from other regions.
