Console players of BlazBlue Continuum Shift will not have to wait much longer until their version of the game matches the current arcade version. Arc System Works sent out this press release for the Japanese version of the Platinum DLC Character update. Kurushii, a member of DustLoop and SRK, was kind enough to provide a rough translation of the contents of the press release.
This update, most importantly, will finally bring new character Platinum the Trinity home, and will update the game to match the April 15th revision of the arcade version. Here are the rest of the details, including release date and pricing for Japan. We'll update you with announcements for other territories as they become available.
Details about the North American version can be found here.
