2D FIGHTING MASTERPIECE ENTERS ANOTHER DIMENSION

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BRISTOL (11th March 2011) Zen United and PQube are pleased to announce that BlazBlue Continuum Shift 2, the latest in Arc System Works’ award winning 2D fighting series, will be coming to Europe for Nintendo 3DS™ and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) this year.

BlazBlue Continuum Shift 2 is the sequel to last year’s 2D fighting sensation, BlazBlue Continuum Shift– a groundbreaking fighter that was released to great critical acclaim thanks to its innovative fighting system and stunning HD artwork.

BlazBlue Continuum Shift 2 will continue this tradition on 3DS and PSP, delivering all the content of its console counterparts, while adding a host of exclusive new features.

“Described by Official PlayStation Magazine as‘by far the best fighting game on the PSP’, BlazBlue is perfectly suited to handhelds.” said Geraint Evans, Marketing Manager at Zen United.“Continuum Shift 2 will strengthen that reputation while opening up the BlazBlue experience to a whole new audience of gamers on 3DS.”

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift 2 on 3DS will utilize the handheld’s 3D technology to combine the series’ celebrated character design and detailed 3D backdrops, for a unique visual experience that the Guardian recently described as‘gorgeous’ and‘ethereal’.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift 2 will also include all the DLC characters from its predecessor– making it the most comprehensive BlazBlue package yet.

BlazBlue Continuum Shift 2 will be available on 3DS and PSP later this year.
