The last installment in the BlazBlue series, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend was released in the US in early 2012. But by the end of the year the next update, BlazBlue: Chronophantasma, was already available in Japanese arcades.
It took awhile, but Aksys Games announced that not only would BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma be released in North America next year, but that the game would also be available in a special Limited Edition that includes lots of extra merchandise. Not only does BlazBlue: Chronophantasma progress the incredibly complex and deep story of the BlazBlue world, it also features all that players would expect from an expansion, including rebalanced characters, new additions to the roster, and much more.
The Limited Edition will feature all the updated game content of the standard version, but it will also come with a 40-page “Full Color Art Book,” the game’s official soundtrack CD, a Rachel Alucard figurine, a “Fighting Moves” poster, and an exclusive Blu-ray disc of behind-the-scenes interviews.
Both versions of BlazBlue: Chronophantasma are set to be released for the PS3 in March 2014, with the Limited Edition priced at $79.99.
