Aksys games, publishers of the previous game Blazblue: Calamity Trigger has announced that the sequel to their fast paced fighting game is arriving on consoles sometime in Summer of 2010! The game will be coming to both the Xbox 360 and the PS3.
Blazblue: Continuum Shift will be bringing back the diverse and sometimes odd fighters from the first game, with a few new additions. Not only that, but there will also be three new fighters; Hazama, Tsubaki, and ?-12. The returning characters will have new fighting moves and the game shall also include a variety of new battle modes, such as a beginners mode and tutorial mode.
A list of the new features being presented in BlazBlue: Continuum Shift:
New Modes featuring Beginner Mode, Tutorial Mode and Challenge Mode! Beginner Mode encourages a wider audience with an easier control scheme, anyone can jump right into and play! Tutorial allows the novice and pros to practice everything from the basic mechanics unique to BlazBlue.
Challenge Mode offers advanced players character-specific combos and missions.
· Take over Kagutsuchi by creating your own army in Legion Mode!
Defeat the enemy armies positioned at various locations on the map. The ultimate goal is to color the entire map with your color by defeating all the enemy hubs. Recruit enemy soldiers by defeating them!
· Brand new characters, stages, soundtracks and moves!
Not only this, but if they also continue the tradition from the previous game, there will be a long and in-depth storyline for each character again, expanding further upon the vast storyline that each character has, with multiple endings all leading to a true storyline at the end.
Personally I can’t wait for this game. I enjoyed the first Blazblue game greatly and with the announcement of the sequel coming from the arcade cabinets onto consoles, I’m excited. I enjoyed this game more than even Street Fighter IV that came out last year as well. If you haven’t had a chance to play this game but are a fan of fighting games I would definitely recommend picking up the original game.
