Today is august 5th, and rabid fans of the gorgeously illustrated BlazBlue: Continuum Shift have a lot to be excited about. The additional character Makoto Nanaya is now available for purchase on Xbox Live and PSN. Fans of the series will recognize Makoto as a friend of Noel and Tsubaki’s, and that she attended the Military academy with them. Because the roster in BlazBlue is so tight and perfectly balanced, a new character is a huge deal.
Gamers have known that Makoto would become an addition since before Continuum Shift was released. We unveiled her on this site some time ago, complete with a game play trailer and screenshots which can be seen here. Supposedly, purchasing Makoto will also add her strategy in tutorial mode as well as challenge mode, and can be faced in game modes like score attack
The additional character will cost you $8, or 560 Microsoft Points. Although this does seem rather steep, remember that this is a content package and includes her theme music and a new stage. Fans have no reason not to check this out.
