Even though SBO was all about the best of the best players duking it out in various fighting games, there were some video game reveals. One of those reveals came from Arc System Works, the developers of Guilty Gear, BlazBlue and the upcoming Persona 4: Arena. They announced the latest game in the BlazBlue series, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma. Now before you start shouting "OMGZ ARC IZ NOW CRAPCOM SUXZ!1!1" this isn't like CS Extend. Chrono Phantasma is basically BB III. Chrono Phantasma boasts three brand new characters, new system balances and other such as the following:
There’s reportedly a lot that’s been changed in the game. The neutral poses have been redrawn for all the characters, and their costumes are even different. Of course they also have new moves.
Noel has a different weapon and she doesn’t wear a cap this time.
Tsubaki seems to be the version that’s fallen to the dark side.
Hazama has a new DD
The BGMs seems to be different as well
Three new characters will be added in: Amane, Barret(Bullet?), Azrael. Amane fights with something like a cloth, Barret looks a bit like Makoto, Azrael is muscular.
There is no set release date on Chrono Phantasma but per Arc System standards, the game will come out in the arcades first then to consoles at a later time.
