BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, the third full instalment of Arc System Works’s popular 2D fighting game series, is now playable at all arcades or game centers across Japan equipped with NESICAxLive cabinets.

Unlike regular arcade cabinets, NESICAxLive ones are hooked to a network that allows these specialised cabinets to access a variety of games available on the platform, including Persona 4: Arena and the newly released BB:CP. Gamers can pick which title they’d like to play after dropping in their tokens, provided if the arcade operator has turned on this feature.

At launch, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma features twenty selectable characters, including series newcomers Amane Nishiki, Bullet and Azrael.

But over the course of the next three weeks, three more characters – Nu-13, Mu-12, and Izayoi (Tsubaki Yayoi) – will also be unlocked for arcade-goers to play as:

Story in BBCP
Apparently, Tsubaki had been under a curse put on her by the Imperator Librarius. Fortunately, she was able to break the curse, and in doing so, awakened the powers of Rei-shiki Izayoi (零織・イザヨイ) to assume this “true form”.

Drawing power from the Murakumo Unit Prototype, Izayoi (Tsubaki Yayoi) now serves her own brand of justice, and seeks to punish those who have sinned. Continuing to wield the same blade that in the past stole light away from her eyes, Izayoi (Tsubaki Yayoi) acts in search for “the light of truth”.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma will head home to console games on the PlayStation 3 sometime in 2013.
