Europe! According to Zen United, publisher of the BlazBlue series in Europe, the updated title, Continuum Shift, will be heading to European regions this year. No specific date or window was given, but maybe we will hear one soon.
It is kind of weird, because they waited so long to release the original. So now we will have BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, BlazBlue Portable, and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift released all in under a year. Unless Continuum Shift is delayed of course.
If you haven’t already heard, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift features new characters and modes. It is similar to the sort of update Super Street Fighter IV was.
You can check out the European teaser trailer after the jump.
The home console port of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is on the way with a variety of new features including three new characters: μ-12 (a console exclusive character), Hazama, and Tsubaki Yayoi.
Continuum Shift will also include the legacy mode found in the recently released BlazBlue Portable on PSP, new and redesigned backgrounds, and a new tutorial mode.
North Americans will be able to check out all the new additions of BlazBlue Continuum Shift this Summer on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger hasn’t even released in Europe …so it might be awhile till we see the title hit there.
The arcade port of BlazBlue Continuum Shift is going to have quite a bit of extra bonus content. One of the major additions is the character μ-12 who is a cyborg character exclusive to the home console releases on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Players can expect to play on all the stages from the Arcade release of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift along with new ones exclusive to the home consoles and remade classics from BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger.
Arc System Works also was nice enough to include the BlazBlue Portable exclusive mode Legion to the home console release.
As of right now BlazBlue: Continuum Shift has only been announced for Japan and is hitting some time early this Summer for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

An employee at Famitsu magazine accidentally uploaded the wrong cover to their website unveiling not only their article line up for next week, but a new game and a port of a arcade game.
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is currently only in the arcades, but according to the cover the title will be finally heading over to the home consoles. And it is time for Love Plus owners to dump, or in one mans case divorce, their old Love Plus girlfriends and start a new with Love Plus+ (see what they did there?).
The magazine won’t see store shelves for another week in Japan so we will just have to twiddle our thumbs till more details come out.
