Makoto gets buffed, Kagura's projectile gains more hits - BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Ver2.0 change log videos

With only about a day to go before BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Ver2.0 is officially launched in arcades all over Japan on October 9, Arc System Works and Famitsu are have posted a series of videos to briefly go over some of the changes that are being made to the game's existing characters.

Between three to five changes are covered for each of the game's 26 existing characters in these videos, so they do not may not encapsulate all of the tweaks made to every character per se. Nevertheless, some of the changes covered here should give BBCP players some ideas on how to incorporate these tweaks into their game plan.

Aside from the character balance changes, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Ver 2.0 also introduces two new characters, and greatly revamps the Overdrive power-up system.

Dogura and Galileo are saying their goodbyes to BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma v1.11... with a ft-to-30 to settle the score, once and for all

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasta Ver2.0 is coming out next week (on October 9) in Japanese arcades, and so Dogura and Galileo -- two of the strongest BBCP players in the world right now -- played a first-to-30 set earlier today to send the soon-to-be-outdated version of the game out with a bang.

The two have decided to play the long set not simply due to their immense love for the game, of course. As Galileo managed to take the championship title at EVO 2014 over Dogura, while Dogura's team defeated Galileo's to clinch the title at Arc Revolution 2-on-2 Japan national finals, the two players are pretty much tied 1-to-1 at this point, as far as major tournaments running on BBCP v1.11 are concerned.

So they thought it'd be fun to determine who is the better BBCP v1.11 player once and for all -- and there's really no better time to do it one week before everyone will get a fresh start again on BBCP v2.0.

Who will emerge victorious? Find out in the nearly 4-hour long video embedded below -- or just scroll all the way down for the final results.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma consolidated tier lists from Eastern and Western Japan ft. Garireo, Dogura and more

Right before Japan's best BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma players went up against one another in teams of two at the Arc Revolution Cup this past weekend, Arcadia magazine sought out eight of the country's strongest players for their thoughts on the game's current tiers.

They've collated the opinions of these eight players, sorted them out into two lists -- Eastern Japan and Western Japan -- and published their findings in the latest issue of Arcadia magazine, which just went on sale this week.

The Eastern Japan tier list was produced with the assistance of Mitsurugi (BBCP console version's sole 20th Dan player), Minami (BlueRevo champion), Konan (Tougeki 2011 BCS2 champ) and Tetsuo (Hiroyuki Cup champ).

Meanwhile, the Western Japan tier list reflected the opinions of Garireo (EVO2014 champ), Dogura (EVO2014 runner-up and Arc Revo 2014 champ), N Otoko (Arc Revo 2013 runner-up and Arc Revo 2014 champ) and Tsujikawa (Arc Revo 2013 top 8).

Check out their tier lists below. Characters listed towards the right are well-rounders, while those towards the left possess weaknesses in their game plan.
