BlazBlue: Continuum Shift 2 Confirmed For Europe

Zen United has announced that BlazBlue: Continuum Shift 2 will be released in Europe for the PSP and 3DS later this year. The game is an enhanced version of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, which was released for the PS3 and Xbox 360, and includes all three DLC characters. In addition to having all the features from the console version, Continuum Shift 2 tweaks the balance of the game and features new content exclusive to the handhelds.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift for the PS3 and 360 is still scheduled to receive its last DLC character, Platinuum the Trinity, sometime this Spring. It has been long believed by the community that the changes from CS2 would be patched into the game after the update was released in Arcades. There hasn’t been any indication of that happening, unfortunately.


Check out the new screenshots below. If you can’t tell, the first three are for the PSP version and the last three are for the 3DS.

  1. It would seem silly to buy the first game on the PSP… :/, likely for 3DS then if I buy one in may..

    • You mean BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Portable? Yeah, it’s pointless really.

  2. I think I’ll pick up the PS3 version. Since a PSP will take a real beating from my button mashing.

  3. Rather risqué 3rd screen there. :)
    Heard and read many good things about the PS3 game and I know it’s little money so I might give it a go. Though I have my hands somewhat full with MvC3 after your excellent review and hopefully the new MK too.

    • ;D that’s awesome to hear. Glad you enjoyed the review.

      • Enjoyed?! I needed a water break half-way through, it was epic! :)
        Absolutely brilliant game too, money well spent.

      • <3

  4. Is it just me or does the 3DS version have better graphics?

    • I would hope so. It’s kind of hard to tell though. The PSP’s screens are a bit bigger and the only one that looks noticeably off is the one with Makoto (squirrel girl) all big in the background. Looks a bit pixelated.

      The 3DS ones are smaller screens and there’s one in particular that looks off as well (Pic 5). Both games seem nearly equal but it wouldn’t be surprising at all for a newer, more powerful handheld to have the edge.

      • I didn’t think the 3DS was as powerful as the PSP though, even though its newer?
