Finally! See Arc System Works now thats a sequel. 3 added characters, new stages, and some character costume changes. The only reason I never picked up Continuum Shift was because I wasn't paying $40 just for 2 new characters and 2 DLC characters. Since I never got Continuum Shift It'll be like I got 6 new added characters. Very Happy

Your gonna be REALLY lost on the story though, I reccomend at least picking up Continuum Shift Extend, that one has all availible DLC characters from the start, all of the other DLC from the other versions can be unlocked in-game (like bonus colors and unlimited characters), plus it contains both CT AND CS's story modes.

In fact, the Only ACTUAL DLC Extend has is bonus annoucers (but then again you can even unlock some of those in-game)

Anyways, SO pumped for this!!! Very HappyVery HappyVery HappyVery HappyVery HappyVery Happy

At least it's a legit sequel. If it was another rehash, dear god...But I don't get the new charas whatsoever. I would assume it would be Nine or Jubei or Kokonoe

They're probably going to be in. They probably will be revealed either for the console port or further down the line for the Arcades.

I can't see them leaving them out. And if they do, I'll eat my hat.

AWE YEAH! However, Noel's new outfit was kinda... strange. What was wrong with her old one? Eh, I'll grow to like it someday soon.

Noel seems more confident now. I wonder when the states will see this.

Aren't console ports usually only a couple monthes after the arcade release?

They give arcades a few months before console releases. Work out the balance issues as well as profit for arcades/Arc System. We'll most likely see the console release next year.

Literally the day after I make fun of Blazblue not being able to come up with a name for a third game.
You win this round Arc Systems. And you also won my wallet.

Give. Me. Now. FINALLY we get to continue the story. Guess P4A and those other contracted projects ate up ASW's time.

Also, I noticed that there was NO Murakumo unit either of the Nu design or the Mu design. Intriguing.

I agree, the new Noel outfit looks ridiculous. I also don't find it appealing, which is the worst part IMO. Luckily I don't play as Noel, but unfortunately, so many people I play against do, so I can't ignore the outfit Sad

I'm ready for a new Guilty Gear on consoles, BlazBlue can take a backseat until that is accomplished. I suppose BlazBlue could add in the omitted features from Guilty Gear and give us the Guilty Gear characters and I'd be cool with that...it's not as though it would throw off the "continuity" (You played the story mode, you know what I'm talking about) and even if it would, I contend that with the Engrish-y title "Continuum Shift" on a previous release they have covered that base.
