Yes, this is the only explanation I have right now. Just last month we saw Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown announced for a console release – answering many fighting game fans wishes. Now, we find that BlazBlue: Continuum Shift will have another update called BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend.
Extend will bring new game modes, more storytelling, new online team battle and the addition of a badass character(s) – Relius Clover. He is badass, he did wound Jubei!!
Although it’s unclear as to how the update will be brought to us console huggers, I’m personally very excited about this. The difference between between the last updates were actually quite big. So different in fact, combos had changed. You had to basically relearn each characters’ moves and approaches.
That made it feel like a new game to me. If however, it comes out as a purchasable disc, then I’d be a bit disappointed. I’m cool if Relius Clover is a DLC character though.
In addition to these titles we have a few more upcoming titles – Street Fighter X Tekken, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.
Although I might wait a little to see if Super Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Final Arcade Turbo Edition will be announced.
