BlazBlue Gets Another Update: Chrono Phantasma

Whew boy, now I’m lost with all these updates and releases. Let’s try to sort this out and put this in perspective for a moment:
BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift 2
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend
And now BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma
Just announced during BlueFes 2012, Arc System Works has announced a brand new iteration to the BlazBlue series: BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma. A trailer (seen above) was released to showcase the three new characters: Bullet, Amane-Nishiki, and Azrael. This release will also see changes in form of new sprite work for certain characters, new moves, and probably some new mechanics that we haven’t seen or anyone that is more serious into BlazBlue may be able to point out from the trailer.
Some things to note: Noel doesn’t have a cap any more, and Tsubaki looks pretty pissed off.
Location Tests are being held within the next 24 hours in Japan with an expected release date in the arcades around Winter 2012. There’s no mention of a home release, but chances are that this will be a brand new product and will not be DLC for any existing BlazBlue game.
After seeing the release of Extend recently, which effectively replaced the original Continuum Shift disc, would you be willing to throw down more money for Chrono Phantasma? This certainly seems to be a lot more than a simple update, but the game remains relatively the same to those with a casual eye. What say you?[Source: MMCafe]
