Andriasang is reporting that Sinobi, a Japanese retail blog, made mention earlier today of a TBA listing for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma in the Playstation 3 release calendar of this week’s Famitsu. This information comes only two days after the game was officially revealed by Arc System Works, though no official word has been released for this console port. The game is currently undergoing location testing in preparation for its Winter 2012 arcade release.

Sinobi makes no mention of an Xbox 360 release, but it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to assume it will eventually reach Microsoft’s console, much like Calamity Trigger and Continuum Shift before it. We’ll keep you updated as more details are released.

UPDATE – Far from the small mention in a release schedule, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma was actually given a full preview in this week’s Famitsu, which included an interview with producer Toshimichi Mori. The preview also confirmed that Arc System Works is currently only working on a Playstation 3 port, the development of which is close to 30% complete.

Mori states in the inteview that his team is putting all they can into perfecting the network mode, teasing “something amazing” if all their goals are realized. Be sure to head over to Andriasang to read their full report, which also makes mention of new gameplay elements being added to the story mode.
