BlazBlue Chronophantasma Extend Coming to PS Vita

At the end of 2014, Arc System Works announced that BBCP Extend would be coming to consoles in April 2015. The game will feature the characters added to Chronophantasma 2.0 in Japanese arcades and new story elements. Now the company has added that BBCPE will be coming to the PS Vita in Japan on the same day of its console release, April 25.

Tekken X Street Fighter Still in Development, No Release Date Yet

Polygon recently talked with Katsuhiro Harada about his work at Bandai Namco, and while there were many topics to discuss one that stood out was the lack of information surrounding the company's half of its collaboration with Capcom.

"[Tekken X Street Fighter is] very difficult to talk about," Harada said. "Obviously, I had originally planned to release it much earlier than we're currently looking at."

The Tekken series director said there is currently no solid release date planned for the game but that it is still in development with "around 40 people currently working on it." Harada did, however, say that when the game is finally ready for release he hopes to deliver it in a special way.

"People have been talking about the game for such a long time that they aren't going to be surprised if you just release it normally ... I don't know if that's what we have planned, but we do plan to have some kind of surprise," he said.


Evolution 2015 Lineup Announced

In sitdown interview with Mike Ross at Twitch headquarters, Joey "Mr. Wizard" Cuellar revealed the games that will be part of this year's Evo. The Evolution staff is putting on nine games for the competitive fighting game community, complete with a surprise or two. The games are:

  • Ultra Street Fighter IV
  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
  • Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-
  • Killer Instinct
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Persona 4 Arena Ultimax
  • Super Smash Bros. Melee
  • Tekken 7 (arcade)

    One of the biggest surprises is that Tekken 7 will be played on the arcade version of the title, which Mark "MarkMan" Julio said will be available "all over" before Evo. However, with the game still in development, it remains to be seen what that will mean for the community.

    Persona 4 Arena Ultimax 2.0 Changes Translated by Xie

    Arc System Works recently released the list of system and character changes to Persona's second fighting game in a post on the company's website. However, as the document was in Japanese many U.S. players were left filtering the text through automated translation programs or waiting on fellow gamers to fill in the information.

    James Xie has now come to competitors' rescue, releasing a Google Doc translating the entire change list for the public to view. Xie admits that his work may not be perfect and that the file "still needs to be proofread/formated/verified," but it certainly lessens the legwork players would otherwise have to do to see the changes for the whole cast.

    Here is a early hint of who is coming to the last Dead or Alive 5 game.

    Famitsu provided a small preview scan of the newest Dead or Alive 5: Last Round character Honoka. Not many details have been revealed from the preview aside from having a "secret power." Players will be able to check out more of Honoka in the upcoming issue of Famitsu as well as Team Ninja officially on Jan. 15.

    Due to hardware capacity, we are approaching the limit of the additional downloadable content we can offer for PS3/Xbox 360. There is a possibility that new content will not be availalbe for those platforms in the future.

    We are currently looking into the limits and will inform you as soon as we have more information.There should be no issues transferring any downloadable content for “DOA5 Ultimate” to “DOA5 Last Round”.

    Team Ninja also stated that it's not a hard drive concern. In addition to DLC conflicts, the last gen versions of DOA5:LR will not feature the newer stages or customizable outfits.
