The February 14th release of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift EXTEND not only lets you pick up Platinum, Valkenhayn, and Makoto without DLC, but Carl's terrifying father Relius Clover--we last talked about him back in September.
Aksys recently released a new trailer introducing Relius' gameplay and a little of his backstory--aside from ruthlessly attacking his son, he also has some unexpected ties to a bunch of the BlazBlue cast.
The horrible thing about Relius (and Carl, for that matter) is that a lot of their combos are based on hitting somebody with their puppet, then keeping them there in hitstun with their puppet while Relius/Carl beats on them with their bare hands. Practice those Rapid Cancels if you want to keep him and his flailing psycho puppet off of you.
Nice to know exactly what we're getting our hands on when the game arrives this coming Valentine's Day (also available as a Limited Edition). Were you picking up Continuum Shift EXTEND? Or were you still holding out hope for that BlazBlue anime Arc has expressed interest in?
