In it’s continued dominance of practically every current generation gaming platform, the BlazBlue series is headed for the yet unreleased PlayStation Vita. This updated new installment, called BB:CS2+, will bring with it an entirely new character: Relius Clover. He’ll also be available in the arcade version of the game this winter. Fans will recognize Relius as the father of Carl Clover, a character with one of the most unique fighting styles in fighting games, hands down.
Relius will make use of a similar fighting style, with his giant mechanical doll. I’m personally a much greater fan of Relius and his doll’s design than Carl and Ada’s. This confirmation comes via Famitsu, which also mentions that a console DLC release of Relius may be possible and that a location test of the character will take place early next month. Relius could easily be one of the most interesting characters in the world of BB. Let’s pray Aksys sends him to consoles as well.
