Arc System Works can’t seem to resist releasing multiple iterations of its fighting games, so it’s little surprise that the Guilty Gear developer has confirmed that BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma is set to combo onto the PlayStation Vita this April in Japan. Perhaps most interesting, however, is that in addition to sharing DLC with the PlayStation 3 release and incorporating the arcade version’s balance updates, it will also come with a new scenario to help justify its existence.

And, in predictable fashion, this will see the cast of the fighter spending a day at the beach. According to Famitsu, the “comedy” sequence will find popular characters Ragna, Noel, Kagura, and Celica chilling out in swimwear. Additional information is scarce right now, but we’re sure that all will be revealed ahead of the port’s 24th April launch. There’s no word on a Western localisation just yet, but we’d be surprised if the brawler didn’t undress overseas.
