For the first bit of news, a new patch is coming out for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift on the PS3. This patch is a FREE upgrade that will enable Version 1.03 of the game. Version 1.03 will contain a lot of various bug fixes and tweaks, but there are two big changes that Version 1.03 brings that are sure to get you hyped up for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift all over again!
Version 1.03 will change the game balance to match the current version of BlazBlue found in the arcades of Japan. Whether your dream is to battle it out in Japan in their famous Super Battle Opera or just play with friends at home, be prepared to unleash all sorts of new combos and strategies after this update.
But that’s not all! Version 1.03 will make a new character available for purchase – the unbelievably cute Platinum the Trinity has finally made it to home consoles! Whether you enjoy throwing down with cutesy characters or fighting with a quirky, item-based style, Platinum will be available for unlock on PSN for $7.99!
The other piece of big news is that BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II will be coming to PlayStation Portable this May! BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II is an enhanced port of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift that includes all the DLC and balances changes, and even includes some new story and single-player content created just for the handheld version. It’s the perfect way to take BlazBlue with you when you’re itching for awesome 2D fighting action on the go!
