A patch for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is coming out this May! The patch will contain balance changes to match the arcade version of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II AND enable Platinum for purchase at $7.99 or 560 MSP. Hit the jump for the full press release.

TORRANCE, Calif.–April 15th, 2011–Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment software, is pleased to announce that the hit 2D fighting game for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, will be updated with all new content and bug fixes, taking the system version to 1.03. The data for system version 1.03 and Platinum the Trinity will be available in the month of May.

    the new challenges sound cool but do they replace the current challenges or can we still go back and do the old ones

    This all assumes that the PSN will be back up soon. Sigh.

    But just wondering, will Platinum be unplayable if someone decided to go back to v1.02?

    Just curious, is there a specific reason we couldn’t get the new opening song with the patch? (In as too much of a hassle, issues with putting it in a patch, or something like that.) This isn’t a complaint, I’m glad we even got/are getting (Have PS3 and all.) the patch, but still. That new opening is awesome. :(
