Can I play BlazBlue Continuum Shift without playing the first game?

#1KneekickerPosted 2/5/2013 10:17:22 PM
I've been looking for a fighting game to play after I squeezed out the last amount of juice in Persona 4 Arena and I settled my eyes on BlazBlue since it was also made by the guys that made P4A but I looked at the EB Games website and they don't have Calamity Trigger anywhere near-by. Are there any important plot details I would miss if I skipped Calamity Trigger? On a side note what is Continuum Shift Extend? Is it a updated release or a new game?

Get continuum shift extend at least. Extend contains an abridged version of Calamity Trigger, so you get the gist of the first story.

Continuum Shift is not worth getting. Either get Calamity Trigger + Continuum Shift Extend or just Continuum Shift Extend (Extend is an updated release)

Thanks for the answer, the "Extend" part had me confused as to what it was. Guess I'll be getting Extend then.

yep, and if you do enjoy it, get Calamity Trigger anyway, the story in CT is funny as hell

Also, EBgames still exist? wtf?
