In disappointing news today, it has been confirmed that BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend players will still have to deal with a lack of cross-platform play and online lobbies.
While cross-platform play with the PlayStation 3 / PlayStation 4 and online lobbies were missing from the original Chrono Phantasma release, fans are sure to be disappointed at the fact that they won’t be included in this Extend release either.
The console versions can support a 64 player lobby with a “My Room” function that lets players decorate their lobby with furniture and fixtures with currency earned through playing the game and through DLC purchases. On the other hand, Vita owners will be getting the same online experience that Chrono Phantasma had when it was released in 2014 – online, but no lobbies.
BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend is set to release on April 23, 2015 in Japan. There is still no word on a Western release, but when there is, be sure that The Vita Lounge will be on top of it.
