I swear, I just wrote like 500 words about how exciting it was that BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma now has a release date in North America. Then the computer ate it and now I'm filled with bitterness. Nevertheless, that doesn't change the fact that BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma is planned for release in March of 2014 exclusively on the PlayStation 3. Hooray! That's only... 15 months after it was initially released in Japan.
To help make the wait sting a little less, localizer Aksys Games is putting together a fancy Limited Edition of the game for big fans. Costing just $79.99, $20 more than standard retail pricing, the package comes with plenty to justify the cost:
- BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma on PlayStation 3
- 40-page art book
- Official soundtrack CD
- Rachel Alucard nendoroid figurine
- "Two North American Exclusives!"
As for what the North American exclusives will be, well, it's a big surprise! Okay, it's probably not too much of a surprise. It's probably DLC, but DLC is still better than no DLC, right?
Pick up BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, either in standard retail form or limited edition, starting March 2014 exclusively on the PlayStation 3. Big thanks to Aksys for stepping up and getting this bigger-than-niche fighting game overseas.
