An interview with Toschimichi Mori (producer) and Takeshi Yamanaka (director for console versions) about many aspects of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift has been uploaded by TheZenUnited. It's broken into 10 different videos. The interview is very interesting and covers topics such as characters, character designs, thoughts on Street Fighter, the online Player Ranking System, beginner mode, downloadable content, and more. It is 10 videos but each individual part is pretty short.
The following 9 parts after the jump!
