BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma EXTEND Due This Summer

By Lexley Ford, 2 years ago
Last month, Arc System Works officially announced that BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma EXTEND, the updated version of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, would be making its way to the Xbox One this Summer. BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma was previously only available for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita systems, but the EXTEND edition will mark the series’ debut on the new generation of consoles with a host of new features, characters and scenarios.

BlazBlue: CPEX

CRUSH ‘EM! – With the all-new revamped Guard Gauge system, players can now determine when to attack/block using the Barrier Gauge meter. When your opponent’s Barrier Gauge meter is depleted, unleash a powerful barrier-shattering move, Guard Crush!

Ready to Fight with Style? – With Stylish Mode activated, even beginners can perform flashy attacks and combos! Four new features have been added to Stylish Mode: Auto Guard, Combo Attacks, Special Abilities, and Distortion Drive. These features allow players new to fighting games to pull off advanced combos!

New Stage, Characters and Additional Scenarios! – There will be a total of 28 playable characters with two new exciting characters, Celica and Lambda! BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma EXTEND includes brand new scenarios and contains digest versions of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, so both new and returning players can enjoy Story Mode. Celica also comes with a brand new stage, Ishana, the land of memories!

Remix Heart­ – Tired from all that fighting? Take a break and enjoy a heart-warming comedic story (mode) featuring two high school girls, Mai Natsume and Kajun Faycott, as well as the characters from the main scenario, Noel, Tsubaki, and Makoto!
While the above wall of text provides a healthy amount of information, sometimes it can be difficult to take it all in. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, and if so a video must be worth millions. The following opening cinematic and gameplay trailer, despite a possible language barrier, may help to get the point across with a colourful display of explosions and flashy combos.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma EXTEND will be available for the Xbox One sometime this summer.
