How many versions of BlazBlue are there these days? We’ve given up trying to keep count, but we can confirm that an updated edition is on its way to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 next year. Revealed in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend will be an enhanced version of this year’s PS3 and Vita game, and will include a healthy helping of bonus content. Are you keeping up?

New features confirmed so far include the addition of the formerly arcade exclusive characters, Celica Ayatsuki Mercury and Lambda-11. You can also probably expect some visual bells and whistles in the next-gen re-release, seeing as developer Arc System Works' other title Guilty Gear Xrd Sign looks jaw-dropping on the Japanese giant’s super machine. Expect more information to be announced in the lead up to the title’s 23rd April launch in Japan.
