BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Press Release

The critically acclaimed BlazeBlue: Chrono Phantasma is now available for on-the-go brawling on the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system. Whether you want to dig into the 30 hours of gameplay contained within story mode, or you just want to boot up for a quick match or two, BlazeBlue: Chrono Phantasma is sure to be a boon for players on the go. Additionally, feel free to relax and enjoy the hilarious antics of the brand new, PlayStation® Vita system exclusive beach scenario!


With newly redrawn sprites, and a multitude of gameplay changes to the characters, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma is a refreshing experience even for BlazBlue veterans! Follow Ragna’s continued story as he embarks on his final mission to hunt down the villainous Terumi. Noel’s life and the fate of the entire world hang in the balance as Ragna the Bloodedge marches toward one last confrontation.

A Vast Wealth of Content

New Fighting System: “Overdrive” is a new system that enhances strength but also alters different properties specifically for each character! Jin’s attacks freeze opponents, the speed of Noel’s drive moves is increased, and Bullet remains in permanent “heat up” while in overdrive. The lower your health, the longer Overdrive will last, and the game timer even freezes while it’s active! Overdrive brings an intense conclusion to the matches of the already almost-too-intense BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma! Five new characters join the cast to bring an even more unique flair (as if it needed that!).

Amane Nishiki, Bullet, Azrael, Izayoi, and Kagura Mutsuki all manage to bring even more variety to BlazBlue! Two additional characters, Yuuki Terumi and Kokonoe, are available for download! These characters are a cross-buy, so if you’ve already bought them for PlayStation®3 system, you have them on PlayStation®Vita system as well! With these two new fighters, the roster has climbed to an astounding 26! A story summary conveniently updates players on the epic action of the BlazBlue universe!

Head to the beach with the BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma cast in the all-new beach scenario, exclusive to the PlayStation®Vita system! Modes for every player, including traditional BlazBlue modes such as Arcade, Unlimited Mars, Survival, and more. BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma for PlayStation®Vita system also offers an enhanced Abyss mode! Crush Trigger is a new move that allows players to use a small amount of their Heat Gauge to attempt to knock an opponent out of their defensive stance.

Character sprites have been newly redrawn for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, and characters’ movesets have been tweaked; some to the point of feeling almost new!

Aksys Games is having a BlazBlue summer! Be sure to check out XBlaze Code: Embryo which is now available for PlayStation®3 system and PlayStation®Vita system!
