    My mind just blew when you guys announced it, THANK YOU T_T, but I got a question, What’s going to be in the Limited Edition of CS?

    They only just announced that they picked it up. I doubt Aksys has thought that far ahead yet. Patience.

    In response to the announcement: Woo! More fighting times! Sweet.

    Say, are you going to release this game for a lower price point, and give a special bonus to those who own the original Blazblue??

    MISTAKES:
    “…Rebel 1… FIGHT!”
    It’s “Rebel 1… ACTION!” Dammit, guys, so simple. ;+;

    “…Tsubaki the valiant female knight…”
    *SPOILERS*
    Tsubaki’s not valiant! She’s a coldblooded assassin sent to KILL Jin and Noel.

    Also, isn’t that just the Japanese trailer? None of the amazing English voices in that trailer. Also, Lambda really bothers me. She looks NAKED. ;_;

    The gallery will probably be in.
    Also, it’s about time Aksys announced this, this isn’t a surprise to anyone. Which is to say, I’ve been sold since before you could make your moves, Aksys, now TAKE MY DAMN MONEY!

    what….no Limited Edition for BlazBlue?

    that’s strange since it must be their best-selling title, and their other less popular ones gets all the Limited goodies.
