About This Game

'BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend' is the sixth installment of the BlazBlue series, a combination of 2D fighting action game and visual novel. The game incorporates flashy performance and unique fighting moves with the Drive Button system to quickly take down the opponent. Now players can dish out super-powerful Guard Crush attacks when their opponent’s Barrier Gauge is low with the revamped Guard system. A player can quickly turn the tide of the battle by using BlazBlue’s unique mechanic - Overdrive - to enhance his skills and abilities. With two new characters, Celica and Λ-11-, joining the roster, the player will be able to choose from 28 different playable characters. Also, a story mode named “Remix Heart” is newly added, featuring two characters, Mai Natsume and Kajun Faycott.

My Room

A totally new system, ‘My Room’ has been added to the existing BlazBlue network system. In the room, you can talk with other players and decorate your room with wall items, furniture items and etc. You can even fight with other players as a team in Team Match.

Crush ‘Em!

With the all-new revamped Guard Gauge system, players can now determine when to attack/block using the Barrier Gauge meter. When your opponent’s Barrier Gauge meter is depleted, unleash a powerful barrier-shattering move, Guard Crush!

Ready to Fight with Style?

With Stylish Mode activated, even beginners can perform flashy attacks and combos! Four new features have been added to Stylish Mode: Auto Guard, Combo Attacks, Special Abilities, and Distortion Drive. These features allow players that are new to fighting games to pull off advanced combos!

New Stage, Characters and Additional Scenarios!

There will be a total of 28 playable characters with two new exciting characters, Celica and Λ-11-! BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend includes brand new scenarios and contains digest versions of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, so both new and returning players can enjoy the Story Mode. Celica also comes with a brand new stage, Ishana, the land of memories!

Thanks ASW/H2 for the great port.

+ Latest BB available on consoles, now on PC. for cheap. (BBCF is still only on JPN arcades atm)
+ Online mode works. Yes, a working online mode. In 2016. Isn't that amazing?
+ One of the best, if not the best, netcode.
+ DirectInput Support.
+ Single player content. TONS of them. (Arcade, Story mode, Challenge, Abyss, Score Attack, Unlimited Mars, Challenge, Training, an extra story mode, and a couple of stuff for newcomers)
+ Tutorial will show you the ropes and Challenge mode can make you master some complex combos.
+ Great gameplay. Kinda hard at first, but it's all fun after that.
+ Tons of chars, each one with a unique gameplay.
+ It's not Street Fighter.
+ Contains all DLCs from the console.
+ Can change the annoying default system voice to many others. desuno!
+ Great soundtrack. (subjective)
+ Customize your lobby to look fab.
+ Can play BBCP instead of BBCPE if you want. We love you kokonoe :3
+ EU players don't have to wait a whole year :v
+ Amazing story mode (subjective). Now with the obligatory beach episode, plus a recap episode (for CT/CS events)...
+ Celica. Izayoi.

Cons: (trying to be picky, they're mostly non-issues)
- No online cross-play with consoles. Online might feel like a ghost town sometimes, as most ppl interested in the game already got it on consoles aeons before this PC release.
- I don't have a 5:3 monitor, so any resolution i pick will look weird (with black bars on corners or stretched image. Arcade resolution is 1280x768).
- 720p sprites look weird unless im on 768p windowed or lower...
- No resolution option above 1080p, in case you wanted to make your 720p sprites look even worse. (EDIT: Thanks, uh, Batman for pointing out that you can edit it in the DisplaySetting.cfg in your Documents folder)
- Low quality OP video. It's as if PCs had limited HD...
- Can't customize the accept/cancel buttons for menu.
- Terumi. Bang.

* So many characters, it makes it harder for newcomers to learn all them matchups...
* Not so mod-friendly. Because, sprites.
* The included "OST" is SONG INTERLUDE II album ( http://vgmdb.net/album/38796 ) + 2 Tsubaki themes (Condemnation Wings II and Memory of Tears II). Just to let ppl know what this "OST" actually is.
* Platinum. Mai.

Playable cast consists of:
Dante from Devil may cry
His "psst, nothing personal kid" brother
Dual wielding
Loli vampire
Hyperactive cat person
Young boy with doll
Token Chinese character
A big guy
A ninja of love and justice
Fedora wearer with his CS:GO butterfly knife
His evil(er) alter ego
Underboob squirrel girl
Lycanthrope old butler
Token Loli (with split personality)
Man still playing with dolls
Turret deploying robot girl
Magic sword throwing robot girl
The other magic sword throwing robot girl
Token camp character
Even more JUSTICE
Lady killer
Scientific cat person

They all (with the exception of 1 or 2) play differently from each other through the use of drive attacks that give each character a unique special ability.

Tons of content
Highly convaluted story-line (though the story seems to be quite long)
Incredibly Chuuni antics
Glossary so you actually know what they're talking about this time.
Arcade endings that are much more individualised than the last game.
Izayoi bot
Gallery with cool stuff to unlock
Other things I've forgotten to mention

It's a lot of fun, though I'd recommend using a control scheme other than keyboard such as a controller because attempting to simulate joystick rotations using the numpad keys is not easy.

Even with a controller some of the inputs are a little strange (One of bullet's distortion drive special moves has you perform three full rotations of the joystick)

A great pc port for an accesible price point, something we can barely see, so 10 out of 10.

First Impression (Actual Review will follow later): Solid port with all the DLC from the console release pre-included as well as a version select, in case you really want to witness vanilla Chronophantasma Kokonoe in all her glory.

+Huge variety of characters to play
+VN based story
+Many different types of executable combos and specials
+Excellent sets of tutorials that guides you from the basics of the game in general as well as teaches you roughly how a character is played and ways of executing combos and special attacks (every character have their own set of character-based tutorials)
+Huge amount of character colour templates (begins with a choice of 6 and you can unlock more)
+Profile customization for online play
+Many different types of game modes
+Challenging "Hell" mode AI difficulty as well as a wide range of difficulties available to cater for intermediate all the way to casuals
+Lots of unlockables not even taking into account of Steam Achievements
+Hardly any lag/fps drops(or locks) compared to several other fighting game genre that get PC ported
+Great BGMs that are selectable or automated (unique BGMs that represents the individual character themes and unique themes that are played when certain 2 characters have a face-off against one another)
+Value for money as it doesn't cost that expensive compared to some other fighting games
+Game itself contains many things even without any form of additional DLC
+Choice of Voice Acting selection (ENG/JP)
+Excellent JP Voice Acting
+Iconic series that continues to deliver
+Provides players a choice to play both Chronophantasma or Choronophantasma Extend in Arcade and Online Player Match

-In ranked matches, you can see the other player's lvl and name(steam name) and they can just simply decline matches without anyform of punishment. The que can be really annoying if you keep getting match with the same person and he/she keeps declining.

About time they release a BlazBlue game on PC without it being too late (though it did came out on PS4 months before).
anyways the port is solid, DLCs from console's version is included for free, soundtrack included too. great set of characters and the solid gameplay of the BlazBlue series returns of course. and a much better netcode too.

+ Great and solid gameplay as usual from BB
+ Big and diverse cast of characters
+ Runs great without any trouble (though more resolutions support would be better)
+ Alot of modes and extras (including Arcade mode unlike SF5)
+ Previous DLCs are included for free along with the amazing soundtrack

The game runs perfectly,
the gameplay itself is awesome

I'm a newbie to the blazblue universe and only bought this game because it looked super awesome. I love good fighting games and this definetly is one!

Edit: If you have some friends, you'll have much fun with this game. Singleplayer is great, but Multiplayer is even better.

Blazblue is fun, its mechanics are fun, the game is fun.
The story is the most cheesy, pointlessly complex, nonsense I have ever seen but it's still has charm.

You know what's great about Blazblue?
Say you try Ragna, but you don't like him -- you want more speed: So then you have Taokaka, and Noel.
Say then you want to use setup combos then you have Rachel, and Carl.
Say then you want to play someone a bit more slow then you got Hazama, and Hakumen.
The list goes on but seriously if you get this game: Try to get a friend, and keep trying each character.

I originally thought I'd main Taokaka till I tried Carl Clover, and who knows.
You might think you like some character but then you try someone else and you like them more.
To hopefully help out newcomers.
Do the character tutorials, they will teach you so much about whom you're playing and the strategy behind them.

If you feel you found the one, the character that you like to play, then try the character's challenges, even if you can't complete any of them now you can still watch them in action and attempt to learn from them.

Overall It's a fantastic game, however there are errors when it constantly crashes about 10 minutes in each time you open. If that does get fixed you'll have the best experience

One of the greatest games I have ever played. It introduced me to time travel (I managed to go from august to November in no time). Seriously a very fun fighting game. Also a very great english dub that wont be included in central fiction (next part of Blazblue series).
