About BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma for PlayStation®3 system

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma is the latest installment of the acclaimed BlazBlue series. With the Cauldron shattered and the cycle broken, Ragna the Bloodedge begins his final mission: Hunt down the villainous Yuuki Terumi. BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma features a new fighting system, new characters, and network mode upgrades.

New Fighting System – BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma implements a new fighting system called “Overdrive.” Each character has a unique “Overdrive” that when used, will power up the character. To make things more interesting, the “Overdrive” system becomes stronger as your health depletes, meaning that players can turn the tide of the battle easily.

New Faces – BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma adds seven new characters (four in-game, one unlockable, and two DLC) to the roster! From the elegant yet deadly Amane Nishiki to the brute Azrael, each of these characters are ready for you to master.

New DLC – Immediately available for purchase is Kokonoe, the mad scientist who uses her large arsenal of weapons to fight. Yuuki Terumi will be available on May 27, 2014.
