    Are you serious? :/ so this is one of their announcements…whats the other?

    • Luna Kazemaru

      you act like its a bad thing

      • Raiyu

        its not really a bad thing but I was kinda expecting new game announcements :/

        I’m still gonna buy it. Though I may just import it if it has English menu and English text with Japanese subs.

  • Jontaku

    Now for a European release we play the waiting game.

  • Hatsuaki

    Noooooooooo 2014 is way too far away ;W;
    Oh wait! Aksys just confirmed we’re going to have 2 DLC characters? Woops.

  • Gigus

    I’m hoping Jin ain’t crazy no more.

    • SuperLuigi

      I hope he still has “crazy” combos though. ;-)

      • Gigus

        lulz I like using Jin too. Unfortunately blazblue online for the vita has been lagging on me so I always lose :(

        • SuperLuigi

          I gave up on the vita version. I had horrible lag also. Ps3 BB games have decent netcode.

          • Gigus

            yeah and since we’re paying for online multiplayer, I hope it’ll get better. Kind of a bummer that online multiplayer on PSN ain’t free no more on PS4 but its worth the trade since they’re giving away free games.

    • DichaTesoro

      It wouldn’t be right if he wasn’t crazy.

      • Gigus

        Lemme change what I want then XD. He can be crazy but at least side with his brother. *spoiler* I laughed at the ending of calamity trigger XP

  • Aiddon

    still no 360 version, eh? Goddammit, at least do that.

  • MrKappa

    This is ultimate fail. The last two always came out the same month as the Japanese release and now this time we have to wait easily over 3 months?

    I plan on importing this game. I’d rather kill myself then play another BlazBlue game that’s translated by Aksys. Continuum Shift Extend’s script was a joke.

    • Hatsuaki

      Just wondering, what was so bad about Extend’s script? D:

      • $24431191

        Everything.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      Arc system works themselves not aksys lol

      • $24431191

        What? Aksys is the company that localized Extend. They’re the ones responsible for the shitty translation.

        • http://twitter.com/GNPixie Lynx

          They PUBLISHED Extend. Arc themselves did the translations (hence is why you have characters saying things they wouldn’t say normally.)

          • $24431191

            Source? Japanese developers don’t typically do their own English translations. That’s why I assumed Aksys was responsible. Either way, the translation is still bad regardless.

        • Luna Kazemaru

          as lynx just said they only published it ASW did the translation themselves which is why it was rushed and bad

    I’m surprised Aksys is the ones bringing this, thought Arc was fully setup to do their own translating now =o? Perhaps that’s the reason for the 2014 delay =(?

    • Hatsuaki

      That, and also the fact that the story mode is supposed to be reaaaally big this time around. I have no doubt voice recording is putting them off. Hopefully it’ll be early 2014, though!

      • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

        A good point, well I have no problems with Aksys doing it of course, just wish the delay wasn’t so steep =(
