BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma
The game takes place after the events of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift. The Story Mode has three scenarios: BlazBlue: Chronophantasma, 7th Agency and Six Heroes. A remake was announced on December 17, 2014, titled BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend.
But complicating matters is the loss of one of the god-like entities of the BlazBlue universe, which has escalated a precarious stalemate into all-out war between the remaining sides. Each shot fired in this conflict tears a hole in the fabric of time and space itself, pulling material from Alternate Universes and rewinding time. If nothing is done to end this, then Ikaruga may collapse under the sheer weight of paradoxes before Ragna or any of the other vigilantes can accomplish their goals. The story will also deal with a new mystery element named the "Chronophantasma" (lit. "The Phantom of Time").
On July 15, 2014, it was announced that a new update (simply named Blazblue: Chronophantasma Ver. 2.0) would come to the Japanese Arcade Cabinets. In addition to standard balance changes for the cast, it includes an updated HUD visor, additional stages, and two more additional characters.
Celica A. Mercury: A major character in the Chronophantasma story mode, as well as the Phase Novels that never made it out of Japan. Due to Celica herself being a pacifist, she fights with Minerva, a doll similar to the ones used by Carl and Relius and designed by Kokonoe to defend and protect her.
λ-No.11-: The eleventh prime field device who debuted in Continuum Shift and served as Nu's replacement before her return. Kokonoe salvaged her in a bid to destroy Terumi, but was destroyed when she gave her life to protect Ragna, giving him her Idea Engine in the process. She was thought to be dead, but returns by as of yet an unknown method. Lambda retains her style of play from Continuum Shift, which was similar to Nu as the latter loses her mode change style to further differentiate the two.
The story this time is split between three different (albeit interconnected) scenarios, each with their own set of playable characters and bosses. Chronophantasma's plot focuses heavily on Sector Seven and matters of the past, particularly the Six Heroes, whose subplot is concluded in this game.
The game arrived in Japanese arcades on November 21, 2012. The game was released on the PS3 in Japan on October 24, 2013. Aksys Games is once again the publisher, and it was released in the U.S. on March 25, 2014, also only for the PlayStation 3.Like it's immediate predecessor, Chronophantasma also has few Updated Rereleases as well.
