98w ago - Today Arc System Works Director Geraint Evans has shared a video detailing everything fans would want to know about BlazBlue for PlayStation Vita!
To quote: With the PS Vita launch just around the corner - we thought we'd take a look at a series that's built a reputation for itself among fighting aficionados over the last couple of years.
Currently readying itself for a spot on the 22 February launch line up, BlazBlue is a fighter that's proven something of a cult hit - a series that's earned high praise from critics for its left-field approach to fighting but is still perceived in some fighting circles as 'the weird other one'.
Getting stuck into a little Street Fighter or a bit of Tekken from time to time is comforting, familiar - you know your way around the character roster, their moves and abilities. You know where you stand - and we understand that.
BlazBlue, seems scary in comparison. For the uninitiated, gameplay footage looks full-on, intense - like the circus has arrived for a gunfight at a firework factory. It's hard to look beyond the relentless visual assault and understand the fighting game that lies beneath.
139w ago - Aksys Games PR Coordinator James Xie has announced today that a BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Patch for PS3 is incoming and confirmed that Continuum Shift II hits PSP this May.

For the first bit of news, a new patch is coming out for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift on the PS3. This patch is a FREE upgrade that will enable Version 1.03 of the game.

Whether your dream is to battle it out in Japan in their famous Super Battle Opera or just play with friends at home, be prepared to unleash all sorts of new combos and strategies after this update.
But that's not all! Version 1.03 will make a new character available for purchase -...
214w ago - According to the latest Famitsu Magazine, the Playstation 3's BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger will be ported to the PSP under the name of BlazBlue Portable.
This is definitely an interesting move considering BlazBlue on the PS3 featured Remote Play support - allowing you to play the game on the PSP already.
To quote: "The latest Famitsu issue revealed that BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger will be heading to the PSP in the near future under the name, BlazBlue Portable.
The high-definition 2D fighting game was released this summer for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A sequel, titled BlazBlue: Continuum Shift was revealed in September for the two aformentioned home consoles.
It should be interesting to see how the fluid and fast-paced fighting game fare on the PSP when BlazBlue Portable comes out in Japan on February 25th."
248w ago - Recently publisher Aksys has revealed plans to bring the console port of arcade brawler BlazBlue, an elegant 2D fighter, to North America for both the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Like their counterparts in Japan, fighting game fans in North America can look forward to mastering super moves and combos this summer, as players beat the heat by staying indoors away from bears and tiresome physical activity.
To quote: We did not forget about you America! Hi-Res, 2D fighting awesomeness coming to your Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this summer!
