With the surprise announcement that BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma would be available on the European PlayStation Store this week, it was met with mixed emotions due to the lack of a retail release. Fans of the franchise raised concern over what would happen to the game's promotional characters, and the answer is not great.

The sequel has been accompanied by the release of two additional DLC characters – Kokone and Yuki Terumi – but both cost a whopping £4.79 each. While their prices may be outrageous, what is more frustrating is that North American owners could obtain one of the fighters for free by either pre-ordering the digital or physical edition. Are you going to splash out on the full roster, or is this one scrap that there will be a falling out over? Duke it out in the comments section below.
