BlazBlue: Continuum Shift now has a release date for Japan! The arcade sequel to the original BlazBlue will receive PS3 and Xbox 360 ports, due to be released on July 1st, 2010. Play-Asia has announced that they will soon have Continuum Shift pre-orders here. After having so much fun with the original, the sequel looks like it will be a lot of fun. From balance tweaks to new characters, there’s nothing not to like about this sequel! Except that it will most likely be a full-priced game… but the prices haven’t officially been announced yet, so perhaps we’ll be pleasantly surprised. No doubt it will be cheaper than importing Final Fantasy XIII, which costs right around $100!
Update: Pre-orders are now available through Play-Asia for both the normal version and the limited edition version. See all the available versions here.
