Blazblue Continuum Key Features:

New Modes, including Beginner Mode, Tutorial Mode and Challenge Mode!

Beginner Mode encourages a wider audience with an easier control scheme; anyone can jump right in and play! Tutorial Mode allows novices and pros to practice everything from the basic mechanics unique to BlazBlue to the most complicated and powerful combos. Challenge Mode offers advanced players a chance to complete character-specific combo goals and missions.

Take over Kagutsuchi by creating your own army in Legion Mode!

Defeat the enemy armies positioned at various locations on the map. The ultimate goal is to fill the entire map with your color by defeating all the enemy hubs. Recruit enemy soldiers by defeating them!

Brand new characters, stages, soundtracks and moves!

Welcome Hazama the mysterious mastermind, Tsubaki the valiant female knight, and μ-12 to the world of BlazBlue!
Three-dimensional effects and 2D visuals integrate seamlessly on every every one of four completely new stages, accompanied by seven banging new songs written by famed composer Diasuke Ishiwatari specifically for Continuum Shift!

Online battling domestically and overseas!

Players can battle others from around the world via the Xbox LIVE network. Players can not only search for matches, play games, and observe matches online, they can also chat with friends while playing.

Super excited for this. Definitely pre-ordering, but waiting to see what bonuses are available. If anyone wants to play some classic BlazBlue tonight, send me a message!

I hope Aksys does the same thing they did with Calamity Trigger. Making the CE limited to the first run and having AWESOME content at the regular price is something all developers should do.

The fact that it's only going to be $39.99 means fighting game fans who didn't plat CT should give it a try.

I'm pretty sure I remember reading that there will be no CE this time around. :cry: Breaks my heart.

I'm in too. I want to get better at Calamity Trigger before venturing into Continuum Shift, but I'm with Guardian as I will be trying to get it on release, but I'm waiting for the best deal.

I really would like to work on Taokaka, since she seems like my type of character, and maybe 'Rawrgna' as my alt.

Also, I need most of my online achievements...maybe we can find time for a fight night (and a night to work on achievements too...I know Guard's got 1k, but I think MtlTom may have some outstanding?) soon.

First footage of mu-12 (Noel's true form) gameplay:



It's tough to tell from the video but I wonder if she'll be balanced. She actually seems pretty normal.

GG's to MtlTom yesterday (in Calamity Trigger, of course).

That Mu-12 video is nice. Her normals don't seem as overpowered as Mu-13, but the long distance spamming could still be a problem. It sort of depends on how quickly those attacks come out, which is hard to determine in this video. Can't really tell if the person controlling her actually knows how to use her.

From what I've heard the girl is playing her & is using the Beginner mode.

I know we talked about this a little bit but Nu is now Lambda-11 (different form) and she's been toned down quite a bit from what I've seen. I've only played CS very briefly but it was pretty obvious.

Oh and slightly faster Tager with a few more ways to magnetize = win!

Well, you are posting in the Xbox360 forums, so I think that may be the case for some. I have a PS3, but decided to get it for the 360 since I already had a Fightpad on the 360 from Street Fighter IV.

And I bought Street Fighter IV on the 360 because my friends mostly use the 360.

Your in Microsoft Gaming > XBox 360 Forum. If your looking at Blazblue for the PS3 go to the PS3 forum and discuss it there.

Also most fighting fans have a fight pad at worst, but I man up and get myself a TE stick.

I might hop on tonight, if not I'll be on Wednesday for sure. I played around a bit yesterday. I promise I'm going to play someone besides Tager, just no one seriously until Continuum Shift because I'd rather learn them with the changes.

Oh and here's the achievement list for Continuum Shift:

Those creative tiles/achievements are delicious. I would expect nothing less, considering the original BlazBlue's list.

Tons of new info: http://www.aksysgame...orums/topic/685

To sum it up:
- Makoto is coming as DLC. The article doesn't specify when but I've heard as early as August, late as fall (when EU BB:CS comes out). If you don't buy the DLC you can play against her, but not as her. She'll come with her own challenges/trials for those respective modes.
- Nu will be back. Unlimited Nu is going to be Lambda-11's Unlimited version.

Here are some screens of Makoto

Lastly, a video of the new Challenge Mode. This is similar to the Trial mode of SSF4. Not sure how/if it'll differ from the Tutorial mode, but it looks awesome. I like that it gives you a sample playback of what the combo is supposed to look like so you don't have to scour YouTube.

Fixed.

Thanks for the games last night Guardian & Mtltom. I really do need to get better at this game, as I'd like to 1k CT before CS comes out. I've done a little reading on Taokaka today and hope to improve my game a little bit next time we throw down (as it stands now, Guardian easily suffocates me with his rushdown Litchi and Mtl's got a good Tager).

I think the cheapest I've seen CS for pre-order is $36.99 on Amazon. That may be the way to go. bs000- get your pre-order in at the library for CS now while you make an emergency border cross to bring the second copy of CT into Canada!
