BlazBlue Expands With Continuum Shift

Guilty Gear creators Arc System Works achieved some enjoyable level of success with a new fighting game property, BlazBlue. One of the loudest complaints was the comparatively slim roster. Good news about that, courtesy of the newest issue of Famitsu.

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger will be getting an expansion of sorts in BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, featuring at least one new character. That new addition would be Tsubaki Yayoi, a previously unplayable character featured in the original BlazBlue. According to details from Famitsu, we'll also get new stages and a refined HUD.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift will reportedly make an appearance at Japanese arcades soon, with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 ports expected later. Thanks to Gantz for the heads up!
