PlayStation Vita BlazBlue Has New Characters and Modes

Portable fighter due for release this Winter.

The Vita version of BlazBlue Continuum Shift, shown above, has some new features over its various counterparts on other platforms.

Arc System Works announced BlazBlue Continuum Shift II for PlayStation Vita a while back. This week's Famitsu has details on what's new for the portable version.

The Vita title is fully titled "BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend." Players can look forward to new scenarios and characters on top of the content of CSII. Included in the new character list are Ignis and Relius Clover, both of whom should be familiar to BlazBlue fans (read Wikipedia's character page for details). Relius was previously confirmed as coming to the arcade version of CSII in a Fall update.

Other features for the Vita version include Network Mode and Abyss Mode. Network Mode supports irregular team counts, with Famitsu mentioning 2 on 2, 3 on 3 and 2 on 4. Abyss Mode will include a refined version of the story from the original.

For those who own the PlayStation 3 version of BlazBlue CS, Famitsu says that you'll be able to share your save data between the two versions.

Update 10:45: Famitsu also reveals that Extend is due for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It's possible that the shared save data is between the Vita and PS3 versions of Extend, so i've striken the above statement from the record until Arc makes an official announcement.

Famitsu lists BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend as due for release this Winter. Sony hasn't announced a final release date for Vita, so this is probably as specific as we can expect at present.
