BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma is new BB game

The next game in the BlazBlue franchise is titled Chrono Phantasma, and is set to hit Japanese arcades beginning this winter. Chrono Phantasma features three new characters: Amane Nishiki, Bullet and Azrael.

Amane uses her feminine wiles and ribbon-like robes to attack, Bullet takes the idea of "firepower" to a very real level, and Azrael appears to use his size and brute strength to his advantage, all visible in the above video. Chrono Phantasma includes updated and new backgrounds, music, and abilities for existing characters.

The new BlazBlue will go on location test at Hey Arcade in Akihabara on August 6-12, if you needed an excuse to jump on a plane to Japan right now.
