In an interview with Arc System Works’ Toshimichi Mori, the BlazBlue producer confirmed that BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma will not have any character or story scenario sold as downloadable content. There will still be some DLC, like alternate colors and voice-packs, but these are arbitrary things compared to the fighter roster and story campaign. So the downloadable content found in BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma will be minor things compared to what are usually found in other games.
As the game is 80% finished, it appears that Arc System Works is looking to sell a complete product by leaving all the vital content within the disk and playable, for no extra charge. This would require people to actually play through the game to experience its contents.
Arc System Works also says that the fighter roster is complete for the PlayStation 3 version. With the addition of home console-exclusive characters Kagura Mutsuki and Yuki Terima, fighters from the arcade version, such as Bullet, Azrael, Ayame, and Izayoi are also making it into the console version. There will be 26 fighters in all.
BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma will release for the Playstation 3 in Japan at October 24th this year. The game has been confirmed by Aksys for a North American release, and will launch next year.
