In an interview with Famitsu, Arc System Work’s Toshimichi Mori talked about the upcoming BlazBlue sequel, BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma. First up, Mori assured fans that the new game will be hitting arcades before the end of the 2012 calendar year. As proof of their commitment to this, Mori brought up the fact that they held location tests for the game immediately after its announcement. Mori also mentioned that they will be holding a second location test soon, before showing a near final build of the game at the Tokyo Game Show in September.
As for the games story, Mori confirmed that the game takes place after BBCS Extend. He also mentioned that, for the home version (currently confirmed only for the PlayStation 3), instead of having individual story paths for each character, they will simply have 3 main stories that lead up to the games true ending.
