BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma has been confirmed for North America. Last month, the game was reportedly a Japanese exclusive, but Aksys has officially announced the PS Vita version of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma will launch Stateside this summer; the PS3 game is due on March 14.
BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma on PS Vita will ship with an additional side-story revolving around a beach party, an "enhanced" Abyss mode - BlazBlue's procession of progressively more difficult opponents - and an abridged story catch-up for all PS Vita players new to the series. Unfortunately, the exact way in which Abyss is "enhanced" is not mentioned in the press release past the break.
Two premium DLC characters will be available on both PS3 and PS Vita, as well as one more unlockable on-disc character. A limited edition version of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, exclusive to PS3, tosses in a behind-the-scenes Blu-ray, poster and other goodies for $80.
