    Chrono Phantasma release date, 2 characters, pre-orders...

    Post by Seignar on Sat Apr 20, 2013 8:21 pm

    For those that know nothing:


    Click if you would rather read the article yourself

    Note: 7140 Yen equals roughly 75 dollars.

    The game's release date has been set to October 24th for the PS3 in Japan. There has also been 2 new fighters confirmed for the Console versions which include a completely new character and a really old one (Not Jubei).

    First, the new guy: Kagura Mutsuki



    "Kagura Mutsuki will be voiced by Keiji Fujiwara. He is a charge
    character with only two special moves: a projectile and an anti-air. His
    appropriately named Drive “Stance” allows him to enter a different
    stance and utilize other moves."

    Bio: Currently the head of the powerful Mutsuki
    family of the Duodecim, Kagura is the Library’s highest order general.
    Because of his supreme position as general, he is planning to revolt
    against the Imperator.

    The second is...wait for it:
    Spoiler:

    If you don't know who it is, learn Kana and read the katakana next to him which has the name written down. If you still need to know who it is then I'll just say they pulled an Order Sol on us. If you still don't know who it is: Yuki Terumi (because a no-hat reskin isn't enough, people!)

    "Hazama’s voice actor, Yuuichi Nakamura, will also fill the role of Yuki
    Terumi. He is being offered as a special pre-order DLC bonus. Terumi has
    more Distortion Drives than special moves, and his Drive makes building
    Heat Gauge easier."

    Spoiler:
    ^Read as: Terumi is a troll character that has 10 different forms of Houtenjin to Frame Trap you; his drive allows him to spam the hell out of Houtenjin on you.

    Bio: Terumi has met Ragna in the past, but only as the alias and disguise
    Hazama. He also previously played a role in the Dark War as one of the
    Six Heroes. Cool, cruel, and especially sly, Terumi enjoys destroying
    and killing anything and everything.

    ---
    So, I'm not sure to be happy there are new characters, or to be annoyed that they decided to make Terumi (Which sounds like a Blazblue version of Dissidia's Gabranth; which sounds fun) a pre-order bonus (Although, the offer isn't bad or manipulating since it appears you can still get him even if you don't preorder).

    But, man do they love making sure people buy the console version by including exclusive characters.

    Shame there are no replies, I love BlazBlue. October 24 is really far away though. I can read Japanese so I'll just preorder it from there, but it's still a long wait. I think it's a shame how horribly buffed Ragna and Jin got in the arcade version of this, hopefully there's a nerf because those two are now top tier from the looks of things and Jin in particular just looks ridiculous. I'm liking Azrael so far too, I generally main the characters that look the coolest and he's metal as hell. Amane also looks interesting, I'm usually not a fan of zoning characters but his drills remind me too much of TTGL for me not to try and learn him.
