When I see Amane, I'm constantly reminded of that scene from Steins;Gate: But he's a guy!
At least Bridget (the trap from Guilty Gear) looked kinda male...

And isn't her name Bullet, not Barrette?

Anyways, this was completely expected, I'm quite psyched for this. Now Aksys just has to announce a US release date.

Wait, no 360?

I mean, I have a PS3, so I can still get it, but to me, BlazBlue has always been my one Xbox fighter. I own all the other games for the 360, and I'd like to keep the pattern going if possible.

I know it's nit-picky on my part, but I hope that at least for the US release, they put it out on both systems.

Not really surprised they're not doing 360 anymore. After Persona 4 Arena sold like 5% of its copies on 360, they probably figured it wasn't worth the development time and money on 360.

I imagine it will be on the ps vita and 3DS as well. They might make a port exclusive for the US but i doubt it. Anyway hopefully a release date ain't far off.

Vita might be likely, since CSE released on Vita the same time as on PS3 and 360. A 3DS version would probably be a watered-down port with all the DLC with no online like CSII, and we'd most likely get it after CP has been out for a while.

3 new characters for a $60 title. They need to start selling BlazBlue at a discount price for so little in each update.

Yeah, a new 40 hour story mode is totally not worth 60 dollars.

And supposedly during the testing there were 5 or 6 empty character slots. Two of them probably being the past murakumo units and the other 4 or 3 being entirely new characters. Why would ASW announce all the characters at once when the game was literally only announced days ago?

It does say also on PS3. So I think 360 was already assumed? There was another announcement post before this, I dunno if it said anything about that.

It was announced for Arcade the other day. Also means it'll be on Arcade and PS3.

i'm personally looking forward to this game, Bullet and the trap guy look like lots of fun. i'm a little surprised that isn't coming for 360 but the 360 has always got the short end of the stick when it comes to Japanese games.

I just laugh that Bullet is considered a quick grappler and her super can make you do a 2520 (7 360 motions)

I'm going to wait for any final judgements on this because BB is one of the only series I still use my Xbox for.

Because who knows; could change between now and the console release.

I'd also assume part of that would be more so the fact Persona has been more of a Sony system thing so most people who got it would most likely get it for PS3.

I still can't get over Bullet's 2520 degree Distortion Drive.

As for the lack of a 360 listing, I wouldn't worry; I don't see why they wouldn't make it multi-platform, especially overseas
