BlazBlue: Continuum Shift was one heck of a fighter and although console owners may want the sequel, it probably makes more sense to send it to the PSP.

The reason for that is because Continuum Shift II released in the arcades as an updated version of the original home version, so it'd be little more than an expansion pack for console players. But for PSP fans, who have only had BlazBlue Portable , the Continuum Shift follow-up is perfect. According to Andriasang citing last week's issue of Dengeki, Arc System Works has announced the PSP conversion of CSII. It'll include those new characters along with a ton of gameplay modes, including Arcade, Versus, Story, Score Attack, Challenge and more. The story mode will boast new stories penned by producer Toshimichi Mori, Legion mode will offer new stages and gameplay systems, and Gallery Mode will have new artwork. Abyss Mode is new to the PSP iteration, although we don't have any specifics right now. Mori said he wanted to expose more people to the BlazBlue universe and those who enjoyed the first portable entry should really love Continuum Shift II .

It should be on store shelves this spring, so be on the lookout for a finalized release date if you're a fan of the critically acclaimed franchise.

Pretty much expected this after Calamity Trigger Portable. But will still most likely buy this even if I already have both games for PS3 and even CTP.

If they were worried about it being seen as nothing more than an expansion pack, maybe they should've named it something other than "Continuum Shift 2"

Yes this is going to be a free patch for console versions, that's good not you can use the dlc characters in Arcade mode.

Psp version gonna have those dlc characters already included so it's a cheap way to go for it.

I just recently got a PSP, and I'm trying to get more games for it. I want to get this cuz then I can Blaz on the go (already have it on console), but I also want to get Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus, which I am really REALLY interested in (have only played the very first game on PS1, I wanna get into the series).

Tough choice really :/
