With BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma's PlayStation 3 release in North America last month, and the announcement of its impending arrival on the Vita overseas, it's understandable why European fans of this frantic fighting franchise have been worried by the radio silence. However, you can finally put those sleepless nights to rest, as Arc System Works has announced that the title will be going live on the PlayStation Network next week in the Old World.
While series veterans may have appreciated prior notice, it's hard to scoff at a local release – even if it is digital only. For those out of the loop, Chrono Phantasma is the third core game in the BlazBlue series following directly after the events of Continuum Shift. With a growing roster of characters and a storyline that will make your head hurt, it's definitely not a title that you'll want to miss. Alas, if you're still undecided about the release, check out our review to find out if the brawler holds its own.
