BlazBlue Central Fiction's console version has now been confirmed for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Joining the playable cast from the XBlaze games comes Es. XBlaze Code:Embryo and XBlaze Lost:Memories are visual novels set in the same multiverse as BlazBlue. While largely unconnected, they share a lot of the same lore terminology and the main character from Lost:Memories resembles BlazBlue's Nine to such an extent that many believe they are the same person.

More details on new character Es, game modes and an interview with series creator and producer Toshimichi Mori to come in a 10-page feature in this week's Famitsu.

This weekend Mikado is having it's usual Xrd tournament filled with high level players. However, In an effort to to make content catered towards the Western audience, they've decided to host 2 Jack-O exhibitions as well since she is a new character that the West can now access via the demo on PS4. 

Hase (Slayer) vs Mike (Jack-O) will take place sometime before or after the usual 3on3 April 9, 2016 Saturday night JST at the usual place: twitch.tv/joniosan (follow him!). Unlike most events at Mikado however, this will feature English commentary by Jazz aka Majinobama.

      Oh no is on the money. Don't forget Carl's exceed being extremely good too, definitely high tier defense as well.
    • [CF] Blazblue CENTRAL FICTION: News and Gameplay Discussion
      She has her weaknesses. Definitely not broken.
    • [CF] Blazblue CENTRAL FICTION: News and Gameplay Discussion
      Very strong, yes, broken, not really. Nine has a really strong neutral game, and kunzite of faceblock is one of the strongest moves in the game right now, to the point it seriously homogenizes her gameplay, and alomst all combos end in some killer oki. She has defensive tools, good ones, but they aren't always avaialble. A Nine with no magic stuck in the corner is a very sad nine indeed. Carl is what I would call broken. His neutral is an absurdly frustrating litchi lite: more movement edition, and has crossup and mixup for days, has no problem establishing oki, his corner pressure is what I would call borderline unfair because ada can negate pushback, so good luck getting out of that without a DP(not that carl cares THAT much about DPs anyways since he's got bait for days). This would all be okay were it not for the fact that he is insanely frustrating to lockdown because the second you start to pressure ada comes flying in with an offscreen fuoco to ream your ass. This would also be acceptable if breaking ada was a serious 'oh shit' moment for carl, and not just 'well, time to play keepaway for 10 seconds.' Right now the only thing that's keeping him from becoming truly insane is because he's pretty difficult mechanically.

      Nine is strong but not broken.You can expect to have issues if you don't learn her spells though. But that's just about any character's drive really.
    • [Xrd] Bedman combo thread
      I haven't tried these other combos but the 5H(2) 1H sj.KH route works on the entire cast I'm pretty sure.  Not hard either.
