According to Arc System Works, BlazBlue will be coming to Europe in 2010 with new characters and additional content. This is good news for those of you who have been patient, may be a bit of bad news for those of you who already imported the game. Now, they said that the exclusive new characters and moves will be exclusive to the European release of BlazBlue. What does that leave us American’s with? I’m hoping that they at least will allow us to purchase the characters and moves as downloadable content, because that seems ridiculous. It’s no surprise that I really like that game, I’ve even wrote a review of it already.
Arc System Works acknowledged the success of BlazBlue, being even better than they once expected. The Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 European release will come with a new strategy guide, games soundtrack, new characters, new moves and gameplay content not available to any other region. What I”m hoping is that they are just going to bundle the new content with the game in Europe, and make other regions pay for it, at LEAST. There are no information on the new characters and moves being released, but some people think it’s safe to assume that the new characters have to do with The Heroes on that poster or something. I don’t remember the exact theory. I’m sure those of you who beat the story already will have some speculation ready as to what charcters are being released.
So there you have it. If you’re in Europe, come this 2010, you’re in for a treat with your extra content. I’m sure for the rest of us, Arc System Works won’t hesitate to make a quick buck off of us, and charge us Microsoft Points for the extra content. That’s not so bad though, at least we’ll be getting it.
