BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II Coming to 3DS in May on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The 3DS is already looking like it's going to be a solid platform for fighting games. Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition has went on to ship over one million copies since its launch and Dead or Alive: Dimensions is coming in May.

The month of May not only brings one game in the genre though, since today Aksys Games have announced a release date for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II. The game will be hitting US retailers on May 31st. No date for Europe was announced though.

The game will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS and Sony PSP systems and is an enhanced version of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, which was an Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 game. This new version's enhanced features include, ad-hoc multiplayer with spectators, new modes, the three characters released as downloadable content, tweaks to the fighting mechanics and balance, plus the added 3D effect for the 3DS version.

Aksys Games also released a launch trailer to tie in with the announcement.

Can't wait.... must haaave...SmilieSmilie

I'm seeing a tend here....mabey what the DS did for RPGs on handhelds we'll see the same for fighters on the 3DS?

You know what I mean, how there was a huge amount of great RPGs on the DS mabey it'll be Fighters that we get graced with by the truckload!! Smilie

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

I wonder if other devs will see the success of these fighters and bring their franchises to 3DS too. It would be nice if we could have a Soul Calibur on 3DS. And maybe even Nintendo will release a new Smash Bros.

Capcom's VP Christian Svennson was asked about the possibility of Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online coming to 3DS:

I hope they announce a release date for Europe, this really looks like a crazy amount of fun (and I haven't got the console versions).

Looks good, but I hope this isn't the start of a trend of PSP games also coming out on 3DS. 3DS can do so much more than PSP.

Those modes like Legion Mode and Abyss Mode look quite interesting. If it gets released in Europe as well, I'm going to be quite tempted to pick it up. Smilie

"ad-hoc multiplayer" Ad-hoc is for the PSP, right? At least that's what the PSP Monster Hunter games always use. Is the 3DS version going to feature WiFi multiplayer as well then? Smilie

Pretty cool, but there are too many damn fighters coming out!
