Out of all such releases, there are only a few Collector's/Limited/Premium Edition games that are really worth the extra price. I think this one is not among those.

You seem a little furious...

it looks good, but sort of reminds me of the duke nukem balls of steal (a lot of crabp stuff and one awesome thing). i would give up all those extras if the premium came with a dlc code for some guilty gear characters. I WANT A BRIDGET/CARL SHOWDOWN!

I'm in the US and I ordered the BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Fan Edition because I wanted to frame the limited edition art print. When the package arrived, I opened the box and was shocked to see that there was no packing material and the box was just barely big enough to hold the print. Unfortunately, the box had been banged on the corner which caused the bottom edge and corner of the art print to crumple and wrinkle. There was no way I could make it look right in a frame and the print was ruined.

Contacted the shipping company and they looked at the box it was shipped in and determined that the seller was at fault for not packaging the item properly. I tried contacting the Zen United store several times and they wouldn't even respond to my e-mail. "Fan Edition"? They must not think very much of their fans.

Good luck to anyone who orders -- I will never be ordering from them again.

Wow laugh I picked up the EU limited edition for under £30 which includes the cards and the CD in a different style box packaging.
So for an extra £30 all you get is 2 manga issues and a poster?

Never played a BlazBlue game before, but i've only heard good things about them. Ordered the limited edition because i want the calendar and the soundtrack seems to be good. Can't wait to get my ass kicked online.

How hard is this game to learn? Does the gameplay feel similar to SF/KOF or more like Marvel? Or is it completely unique?

Better off with just the normal LE.. get it from Zavvi, £32.95 or something round that, I don't see how they can charge almost £20 extra for just 2 manga (that aren't even that big.. not the size of a normal manga), and one poster (which is folded).

I got all Fan Editions so far from Calamity Trigger, Continuum Shift, CS Extend and Arcana Heart 3 Suggom Opai. I admit they have no special packshot or something and the extras are not always THAT good. But Fanboy needs Fan Edtion smile
It would be real nice if you get some game pics or Dashboard Themes nobody else is getting. That would be real Fan exclusives for those who pay much more for this game.
