Makoto Nanaya is a newly playable character for the console version of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift and you should be able to use her on August 5. That’s the day Arc System Works plans on releasing the squirrely character in Japan.
Want to add Makoto to your roster? Then you have to fork over 800 yen or 560 Microsoft Points. Roughly, she costs between $9 – $7. The download pack also includes Makoto’s unlimited form, colors, tutorial, and challenge content.
Aksys says in their grand BlazBlue: Continuum Shift FAQ they are “cautiously optimistic” Makoto will be available in North America on the same day.
Arc System Works’ downloadable content schedule and Aksys’ FAQ hint at more downloadable characters by saying announcements for additional characters will be made at a later date.
