Aksys Bringing BlazBlue Continuum Shift EXTEND to North America

on October 11, 2011 4:43 PM

We’ve seen a lot of news about BlazBlue Continuum Shift EXTEND recently, but usually only directed toward the Japanese release of the game. Now Aksys Games has announced that, like the previous iterations of the franchise, they’ll be bringing it to North America on the PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This EXTEND version of Continuum Shift has a new character, new modes and new story scenarios for you to check out, that extend the lore of the universe as well as, of course, the replay value (as if it wasn’t already high enough). Hit the break to check out a list of the game’s specific features.

  • Enhanced Story Mode: Relive and rediscover the events that took place in BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger or venture forth into one of four all new story scenarios!
  • New and Revised Game Modes to Explore: Take on the strongest of foes in Unlimited Mars Mode, dungeoneer your way to the bottom of Abyss Mode, or refine your skills in the improved Challenge Mode!
  • Fully Revised Combat System: All characters, new and old, have been thoroughly rebalanced and armed with all new strategies and combos to take your game to the top!
  • Improved Online Multiplayer: Battle it out in BlazBlue’s acclaimed online mode with all new multiplayer features, such as online team battles!
No release date was given, but I’m sure that will be forthcoming. We know it’ll be at or after the PlayStation Vita’s launch, which probably will be in the late Winter or early Spring.
