Duodecim. NOL. The Six Heroes. The Black Beast. If you don't know what any of these terms mean, you probably haven't been keeping up with the BlazBlue series of fighting games from Arc System Works. Hell, even if you have been keeping up with the BlazBlue games you still may not know what these terms mean, as the series seems to relish obfuscating its fast-paced gameplay with extraneous details, and nowhere is that more evident than with its newest entry— BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma.
Blazblue Chronophantasma, the latest update to Arc System Works much loved Blazblue fighting game franchise, has just come out in Japan on the PS3. Luckily enough, the PS3 is region free and aside from some menu futzing and an impossible to understand story mode, a fighting game is a fighting game no matter what language it is in. Unfortunately, this is the fourth time Blazblue came out to America
Fighting game players rejoice! E3 2013 brought us yet another version of Blazblue. Counting Blazblue Calamity trigger, Blazblue: Continuum Shift, Blazblue: Continuum Shift 2, and Blazblue: Continuum Shift EX, Blazblue Chronophantasma is the fifth version of Blazblue to release since the game’s debut early this generation. Aren’t you excited to purchase Blazblue for a fifth time!?
BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma, the latest BlazBlue fighter to hit arcades in Japan, will be coming to home consoles on October 24th in Japan. This date comes from Siliconera, who also bought us a reveal of two brand new characters who will be joining BB’s playable roster.
