The PS Vita version of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II is more than just a port. This week’s Famitsu reveals that the game, now titled BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend, will feature two new characters, new gameplay modes, and it’s also coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360.
This new version of Continnuum Shift II will be based on the upcoming update for the arcade version of the game. It will include balance changes and two new characters: Relius Clover and his wife Ignis. The PS Vita version will have new story elements and full network capabilities, which is a first for the series on a handheld platform. You’ll also be able to share save data with the PS3 version.
Not much is known about the console ports. Earlier this year Arc System Works updated BlazBlue: Continuum Shift to Continuum Shift II so it’s certainly possible that this could be released as DLC. We’ll have to wait until more details are announced to know for sure.
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend will be available for the PlayStation Vita in Japan this winter.
