Hello, ladies, look at your US copy of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, now look at the EU copy, now back to the US copy, now back to the EU copy. Sadly, your copy isn’t the EU copy.
If you’re a US gamer like myself and picked up a copy of the new BlazBlue on July 27th (also christened as “StarCraft Day”), you probably couldn’t help but notice there was no option for a limited edition bundle like the first installment, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, offered.
The reason for this omission is currently unknown, but what is known is that European publisher Zen United revealed that they are releasing two bundles of BlazBlue: the limited edition and the fan edition.
The limited edition sports a 96-page art book and eight art cards, showing players how to execute the special moves and distortions (character’s “super moves”).
As for the fan edition, it comes with all the treats featured in the limited edition plus included DLC character, Makoto, a Noel Vermilion figurine, and a limited edition art print by artist Alvin Lee of Marvel and Udon fame. Keep in mind that the fan edition, as stacked as it is, is limited to 500 pieces and can only be bought at the Zen United online store.
The prices for the two bundles aren’t bad to look at either, as the limited edition is currently going for £49.99 and the fan edition costing £54.99. Look for the limited edition to show up in European retailers this October.
The bundles are now diamonds.
