Valkenhayn R. Hellsing Confirmed for BlazBlue Continuum Shift

AKSYS has finally gotten around to confirming the next DLC character for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift. Valkenhayn R. Hellsing, who fans will recognize as Rachel’s butler, will be making his way to Kagutsuchi. However, the announcement doesn’t come as a surprise to dedicated fans. Check out the single in-game image after the break.

We have “known” that Valkenhayn would be a character for some time. Around the time of Makoto’s announcement, his musical theme, representative symbol and portrait surfaced on the internet.  This is

however, the official confirmation, moving the character from rumor status. The reveal took place at a recent AKSYS promotional event commemorating Makoto Nanaya’s release. There was apparently a video shown for the character, although no game play footage has surfaced yet. All we could obtain was this image which shows Valk in game. Not surprisingly, he is in Rachel’s stage.

There is no confirmed release date, though i think we can safely say it won’t be this month. While that’s only speculation, keep in mind  that Makoto came out just last week.  Expect more information on Valkenhayn R. Hellsing, as it becomes available.
