BlazBlue Continumm Shift 2 PSP/3DS trailer hypes hard

3:00 PM on 04.16.2011 // Jonathan Holmes

The new BlazBlue is coming to the PSP and the 3DS in the US at the end of May. The game is already out in Japan, where it sold fairly well on the PSP, but more-or-less bombed on the 3DS. My guess is that's because as of right now, the PSP version of the game has Ad-hoc online play when streamed through the PS3, but no online play to speak of on the 3DS.

I'm still headed towards getting the 3DS version though, for the superior d-pad and the chance to check out 2D sprites on a 3D display. I'll miss the online play, but with all the new single player content, I'll still have plenty to do. For more details on the new single player stuff, and just about everything Continuum Shift II has to offer, check out the press release below.

So how about it people, you up for some more BlazBlue? If so, which handheld do you want t it on?

You know what Fallout 4 mod I want to see? One to fix the interior lightning. It's like the silliest thing to get fixated over, but I can't seem to ignore how white and bright some of those inside lights are.

Well, it seemed like for two seconds people were finally going to give Star Fox a fair shake, but nope! GameXplain's YouTube audience seem pretty insistent that it's just a Star Fox 64 clone down to the graphics. Sometimes I just don't understand peopl

Just finished watching The Phantom Menace. Yeah, Jar Jar is as bad as people say. Baby Vader is so cute and also kicks some serious ass. One of the best lightsaber battles of the series, if not the best one. It was pretty neat!

Can't decide where I should upload my latest project. Either on my YouTube Channel or on Game Anyone. On the one hand YouTube gets more exposure, but Game Anyone is where some of my more popular walkthroughs are. The game is 3D Land if anyone is wondering

In light of the fact that Xenoblade Chronicles X is fast approaching, I suggest we start planning out a Destructoid Squad! NNID is TysonOfTime. From what I've heard, it doesn't appear Squads are region locked (except for Japan), so everyone's welcome!

Sometimes I miss how hilariously janky Brawl was, and I still have a lot of fun playing it. Not sure if I could ever take it seriously as a competitive game, but I want to enter at least one Brawl tournament in the future. You know, if I can find one.
