Famitsu from 23rd of September has some info on new release of BB.

    You would be more likely to see top 3 stay close to the same and everyone else get buffed than to see the top 3 get nerfed.

    Based off the pictures though arakune has something new and so does Rachel.

    New super for Rachel?

    I'm sold.

    Don't think much of Tsubaki's outfit though, didn't even recognise her until I'd been through all the screenshots without seeing her and realised the girl in that freaky outfit must have ben her.

    When do these usually hit jap consoles? A year after Arcade release?

    Seeing as all these things where rumored / confirmed depending on how sceptical you are for the EU release which has been stated as coming early next year I don't think we'll have to wait that long.

    I still think it will be a disk not an update. around a year after it hits arcades probably with a console only super overpowered kli...character(s) as well. tsubakis outfit looks so fucking ill that she might steal me from my sword fetish.

    this is not an update, this is a sequel. new character, new moves and interfaz for the life gauge, super gauge etc... is imposible update this into the actual game.

    this is a whole new game for the arcades first. the eu release will be the same that the "original" blazblue. this new game will come out later. i dont think before autumm 2010 in consoles

    autumn 2010? Highly unlikely. I bet money it'll hit arcades in the japan before the end of the year, then consoles next summer at the latest.

    Oh god so many people want to jump on the Valkenhyne train. :/

    New Jin DD looks similar to Haku's counter DD so if it's a counter super that would be neat. I just pray they don't nerf Jin as he was truly the most balanced character in the game.

    Well if he gets a super counter without any nerfs it sure as hell doesn't sound like he'll be balenced lol.

    He needs to lose something in exchange for it.

    They could update it, they can easily revamp it that much on 360/PS3. Not saying they would/will, though.

    I lawled irl. On a different note, it'd be nice if it wasn't a counter. The super looks too badass in order for it to be limited to counter activation only.

    Hakumen doesn't get Icecar. He gets swordcar. His bamboo stick sword turns into a gravity defying surfboard. Then not only will people call him a sephiroth look-alike, he can be the silver surfer too!

    All they really need to give him are better counters and he'd be able to slice a god. Maybe a projectile reflect/absorb move ala SNK's number 2 villainous badass (behind Geese Howard) Ryuji Yamazaki.

    Needs stronger normal attacks.
    Better damage output.

    I honestly think all bang needs is about 15-16 nails, tweak his j.d, and make an awesomer-er taunt... Then he'd be OP.

    All of his drives have like 7 active frames or something. 5D is the longest with 12 frames. The timing is kind of tricky. Jump D. Counter has no follow up, and all of them prorate pretty severely. I personally think His counters are fine for the most part, and that's what keeps him from being the worst character in the game, IMO.


    And btw, that sword car is epic. If Hakumen had something like dat, Fuck yah man.

    Yeah boo wishlist threads! Just hope the game's as good and hopefully better.

    Everyone on DL needs to chill the fuck out about: tsubaki, her outfit, and arakune curses. Do you think they'd give him another way to curse if they didn't alter how he plays a little? I'm sure they've removed afflict on block for his curse clouds.

    The only games I was thinking about was tekken 6 and call of duty 6.

    Now I have to wait like a whole nother month for this, since unless my shitty local arcade (the only fighting game they have is tekken 4), so I don't think they have the balls or the money to get this.

    He's talking about active frames, you are talking about startup.

    He basically wants Hakumen's D to have more active frames, that is to be more lenient about timing.

    That is a terrible idea though.

    Alright guys, gonna be doing a quick analysis of all the new info given to us in the past few days.

    Tsubaki looks pretty dope. Her outfit is pretty cool, but not at all like I expected, but I suppose they couldn't make her look too similar to Noel and Jin, it would get pretty redundant. I just wanna know why she looks like that.
    Possibly possessed by Terumi?
    Her weapons looks awfully strange as well, can't really make heads or tails of what it is/what it can do.
    Also, from what I can see, she looks like a big character, maybe around the same size of Haku
    Anyone think a charge character would be introduced at some point?
    It wouldn't be the only fighting game with one charge character (Garou)

    Love love love the new HUD.
    I think the guys at ArkSys got a lot of complaints about the complexity of the many meters of BB, and overall, the top of the screen was a bit crowded as far as I'm concerned and I'm a firm believer in less is more in some situations.

    Carl's new projectile, as far as I'm concerned is not a projectile at all, well it kind of is, but from what I can see it's more of a big barrier. I suppose it's used to stop people from rushing him down so hard. Maybe it goes away after a while, or it has to be broken down by damage. Some people may think this would make him OP, but I think if neither you/Nirvana or the your opponent could get through the barrier it would be quite fair.
    Kune's projectile, from what I can see, looks like another VERY good move. I mean, I don't know how the move works in the least, who knows maybe it sucks dick, but if it curses on block or has a fast start-up, it would be just another move used to rape his opponents.
    Again, I could be very wrong, and even if the move ends up being REALLY good, I'm sure they would de-buff many other moves to make it fair.
    Litchi seems to have some kind of new attack with her pole, can't really tell though.

    Jin's new super looks sweet.
    It more than likely is not a counter super, but a move that is very easy to block and kinda is the same motion as Haku's counter (big slash horizontally across the screen) and unless it is used in a combo (notice how the person he is doing it on is frozen) it will be very easy to punish, and pretty much ineffective. Also, it will probably do some sick damage and will HOPEFULLY replace that AWFUL arrow super of his.
    I'm on the same boat as Killey, Jin is the most perfect character in the game, they really should NOT touch him (maybe change the way you get out of freeze but that's it)
    Rachel's super looks pretty weird, can't really tell what it does. I can see some debris in the background. Maybe it's used to attack the opponent (which would be kind of ridiculous, I can see some unblockable set ups, kind of like Storms "Make it Rain") or maybe it's a defensive thing, like debris comes to block certain attacks without you having to hold back effectively making pressuring her in this state in-effective (CH's, anyone? Also, now that I think about it, that also sounds pretty OP against anyone that isn't top tier, but I think I'm pretty cool with Rachel being top tier as long as the other characters are on mostly even ground) .
    Ragna's new attack looks weird, a new way to pressure your opponent from a jump in (sorta like a dive kick)?
    I don't know, looks weird.

    Hey, if any of you Japanese SRK members (I know your out there) could decipher some if this, it would be much appreciated!

    Oh, and as a side note, I don't see any real changes to the original sprites, which is a tad disappointing, not like the original sprites were bad but a little touch up wouldn't have hurt.

    as far as the new kune curse goes i feel like it's going to be a complete replacement for the cloud

    clouds are clearly overpowered and if you make it so they dont curse on block then all anyone needs to do to completely negate it is jump at it and hold back

    and yeah this gives you an opening to go in and apply some pressure but still, they'd have nowhere near the threat level they once had.

    Not to mention that the NA version scans for new downloadable content, which would at least mean that DLC was considered at some point.

    Every counter except for 5D is 1F from what I remember.


    J.D, 2.D, 6.D all have 0 fram startup (active on the first frame), and 7 active frames (followed by some recovery frames but I dont remember the data on the recoveries.)

    5 has like 4 frames of startup or something, followed by 12 active frames.

    And no, I don't want more active frames on Hakumen's drives. I was just pointing out the limitations of them.
