BlazBlue: CS II has got your 3DS fighting game itch covered!

Super Street Figher IV: 3D edition is a pretty great 3DS launch title among the many mediocre and just plain bad. This game has proved to me right from the launch that fighting games can work great on the 3DS, so it is great to see the arrival of another one so soon.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift 2 looks to stay close to its console and arcade counterparts, but much like SSFIV: 3D edition, there aren’t as many bells and whistles as its bigger brother. Having played the arcade and Xbox 360 variety of Blazblue, I can tell you that each character plays entirely different from one another which will make mastering the a challenge. For me this was a fresh take on the tired “quarter circle punch” fighters that have become so popular.

My only fear for the title is that the lack of an online multiplayer mode will hurt it in the long run. We will find our for ourselves when the game launches May 31st.

By a show of hands, who has never even heard of the BlazBlue franchise?
