Decided to create another BB:CS post because the old one was getting way too crowded with all the new scans/screens/video being uploaded. But as you can see below, both Game Watch and Dengeki Online have released higher resolution screenshots of the upcoming BB follow-up, 「BlazBlue: Continuum Shift」. The game is slated for release next year for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 consoles.
Winner: Yuuki. It’s official. Tacos is now one of the Top 8 finalist in this year’s Saimoe contest. That’s 1 Saki character in. How many more will we see before the week is over… Next match, Kana (Saki) vs. Isumi (HnG). Full result details after the jump…

The follow-up to SFIV, known as Super Street Fighter IV, was finally confirmed by Capcom earlier this week. So far 3 new characters have been announced as playable; Dee-Jay (Jamaica), T. Hawk (Mexico), and taekwondo newcomer Juri (South Korea). The game promises to add better online features and character tweaks based on community feedback. Capcom also confirmed that this will be released as a standalone disc that won’t be sold at full price. In addition, a special undetermined bonus will be awarded to those who own both SFIV and SSFIV; so they’re advising not to get rid of your old disc just yet. Super Street Fighter IV is slated for release Spring 2010 for both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 systems. According to an interview with producer Yoshinori Ono, there will be no arcade version.

Next month, details will be announced on the official Project DIVA channel on Nico Nico Douga regarding a brand new 「Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA-」 game. At the moment, there’s an open invitation from SEGA for Hatsune Miku songs. Rumor has it this new game may be for a particular HD console. Judging from the teaser, I am forced to believe so. Either way, very exciting news for Vocaloid fans.
Winners: Mihoko and Nagi. HnG fans came back with a vengeance. Congrats to today’s winners. And with that, all round 3 match-ups come to a close. Group Finals are the next phase in the contest. A: Chiaka (Minami-ke) vs Yuuki (Saki); B: Kana (Saki) vs Isumi (HnG); C: Louise (ZnT) vs Momoko (Saki); D: Amu (Shugo Chara) vs Koromo (Saki); E: Yui (K-On!) vs Minori (Toradora!); F: Taiga (Toradora!) vs Azusa (K-On!); G: Eruruu (Utawarerumono) vs Mihoko (Saki); H: Nagi (HnG) vs Nodoka (Saki). Saimoe will resume a day from now. Full R3 results after the jump…
Winners: Eruruu and Nodocchi. But if you combine the total votes for Yuki and Haruhi, then either one could’ve beaten Eruruu. Unfortunate for fans of that series. Nodocchi was a guaranteed win. Today, our last of the Round 3 match-ups comes to an end, and we have yet another 3-way contest. Personally voting for Ushio, but I know her chances are slim. May indeed be another Saki steamroll tomorrow. Full R3 results after the jump…
Winners: Minori and Taiga. Two more HnG contenders bite the dust. Toradora, much like K-ON fans yesterday, will be celebrating their clean sweep victory today. Go Taiga! For the next match-ups, I’ll be lending my support for Yuki and Nodocchi. Full R3 results after the jump…
Winners: Yui and Azusa. What a wonderful way to start off the morning here! Seeing not one but two K-ON contenders advancing on the same day. And what’s even more thrilling is having my Yui beat the toughest HnG opponent in the contest; by just 18 votes! Now I feel relieved. Great match. I just hope the rest of the tournament will prove to be as exciting. Full R3 results after the jump…
Winners: Momoko and Amu. Congrats to both for making it this far. But now it’s judgment day. Hinagiku versus Yui. This is the one match where we may see votes reach over a thousand. Please take five minutes of your time today and make your voice heard. Full R3 results after the jump…
