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.

Overdrive can be activated while guarding in BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma ver2.0; new trailer ft. Celica and Lambda-11

The autumn "ver2.0" update patch for the arcade release of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma in Japan will not only add two new characters (Celica, Lambda-11) and introduce new balance changes to its roster, but also tweak one of the game's key system mechanics, Overdrive, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine has revealed.

In BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma ver2.0, players will now be able to activate Overdrive even while they're blocking their opponent's attacks. Although Famitsu did not go into detail, this change to the mechanic may mean that you could potentially make supposedly safe-on-block attacks unsafe, by activating Overdrive.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Ver 2.0 - Celica's fireball, healing, footsie tools and Lambda-11's differences from Nu-13 shown on stream

Yesterday, on the Japanese stream program "Gachi de Game wo Yattemiyou" (or "Gachige" for short), Arc System Works's Toshimichi Mori made an appearance to show off Celica and Lambda-11 -- the new playable characters that will be added in an Autumn update to the arcade version of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, which is officially being called "Ver2.0".

Both characters were demoed pretty extensively on stream. Due to Lambda-11's addition into the game, In BBCP Ver2.0, Nu-13 will lose her Phase Shift move which allowed her to switch between two fighting styles, Dia Forma and Luna Forma. In other words, Nu-13 will permanently fight in Dia Forma, while Lambda-11 has nearly all of the moves formerly featured in Nu-13's Luna Forma fighting style.

Lambda-13 also has some new tricks up her sleeves, such as a jumping Drive attack that comes down at her opponent at a 45-degree angle and leads into a full combo.

Most of Celica's normals and special moves were also covered. It was mentioned on-stream that Celica's Drive button will perform auto-combos when pressed repeatedly, somewhat similar to that of Noel Vermillion's -- the D moves that come out will change depending on which direction you're pushing the stick in.

Check out the rather lengthy demonstration videos below.

Which fighting game player is the most popular on YouTube and Twitter? 34 of the biggest names in fighting games ranked

Who are the most popular fighting game players trending on YouTube and Twitter in the world? Japanese fighting game fan Tiger Knee Ojisan wanted to know the answer to that question, to the point that he decided to create a rather arbitrary method to judge the overall popularity of 34 notable names in the FGC -- and made a video to answer it.

His methodology for determining a player's popularity is quite simple: search on YouTube for the player's name, take the average view count of the top 5 videos listed for that player, and add it to the 10 times the number of followers he has on Twitter to drive that player's "PP" -- popularity points, we suppose.

Why 10x the number of Twitter followers? Beats me.

But surprisingly, in spite of the seemingly random formula, the list he has assembled seems to be pretty legit. In fact, the top two contenders on his list were even neck-and-neck in terms of the amount of PP they've amassed.

Check out the video below, and see if you agree with the list -- but do keep in mind that this is only one person's opinion of how a player's popularity should be tabulated.
