It's one of the best fighters we've seen this generation, and in great news for our friends across the pond, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger has been confirmed for a European release.

According to One Last Continue , PQube will be distributing this gem by Arc System Works in European regions next year, and better yet, it's coming with some extra stuff! Not only will the game be "fully localized into English, German, French, Italian and Spanish," but additional content will include a character strategy guide, a music soundtrack, plus all new gameplay featuring fresh characters and techniques. As a side note, this launch marks the starting point of a new partnership between PQube and Zen United. Said PQube's Dave Pain:

"The long running 2D fighting genre has seen a welcome boost in 2009 with updated versions of several franchises brought to Next Gen PS3 and 360 consoles."

While it's still true that certain titles take longer to reach Europe, we've seen more examples of worldwide simultaneous releases this generation. And even when Europe has to wait, sometimes they benefit from the delay; all this additional content ought to put a smile on your faces.

Does this mean a brief reprieve from the whinging that constantly creeps across the pond?

to be really honest, i hate this "later version with more content thing", it makes you feel bad by owning a copy already. LBP is like this (they will have game of the year edition), BlazBlue is like this, many others are like this. This issue is so sticky. I just like the good old days, when you purchased a good game, that is all, no more, no less, just that great game and you know you have it all.

[EDIT] DAMNIT I just re-read your comment so my reply won't make sense and will sound negative. But I won't delete it ūüėČ

o_O

Unfortunately I disagree.

To me it always feels great having more features and content from having to wait ^_^
Because it'll feel 100% complete and I don't care when we get the game lol

This happens all the time for me. Most times, good things come to those who wait – in the gaming world at least hah.

Europe now has 2 things I want: BlazBlue and the limited edition of Tekken 6. Hope these new characters end up as DLC.

Hopefully the extra characters will be free for the people that got the game here in the US. I would be a little peved if I had to pay for what I thought was a complete game.

Honestly the game feels pretty complete as is. It has more features than any other fighter released this gen so far.

That's how I feel as well. Plus, we can't forget that we got an arcade perfect port. New characters is better than just new costumes at least. It'll be worth whatever I end up paying. And the characters are awesome in BlazBlue; deep and unique.
