Sako talks about his experience playing BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, and why he's only competing in Ultra Street Fighter 4 at EVO 2014

Famitsu has published a new interview with Hori|Sako as part of their on-going Hori Densetsu Dot Com series of columns ("Densetsu" being the Japanese word for "Legend") .

This interview was conducted shortly after Sako's wife Akiki gave birth to their daughter on April 17 (the same day Ultra Street Fighter 4 went into service in Japanese arcades), and slightly before BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma was patched on May 14.

In it, Sako speaks mostly about his experience with BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, a game that he had been playing while waiting for Ultra Street Fighter 4 to come out.

In fact, Sako's been enjoying the game so much that one of Famitsu's editors, who introduces himself as the middle child of the Toyoizumi Brothers, bought Sako the PS Vita version of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma as a gift to celebrate the birth of his daughter.

Sako: That made me really happy (laughs).

Hori representative: But that has nothing to do with the baby!

Akiki (Sako's wife): Recently Sako's been taking to the PS Vita a lot. As I've been in the hospital all this while and Sako's been here every night, he hasn't been able to game as much, and I kinda felt bad. So I said to him, "it's okay to go buy a PS Vita game to play in the hospital."

From easiest to most difficult to use - LordKnight's Blazblue: Chrono Phantasma chart

Last week, LordKnight unveiled his Blazblue: Chrono Phantasma tier list, placing each character on a chart based upon how good they are in the current version of the game. As an added treat, we were given a breakdown of each character and an explanation of why they were placed in their respective spots.

Today, LordKnight continues with the BBCP tier list, but this time he's taken a different approach. What follows is a chart that rates the roster from easiest to most difficult to use. The characters that lie at the top of the list are easy to learn, while the more difficult to play are found on the lower half.

You can check out LordKnight's chart by hitting the image below, and feel free to share your thoughts about this list in our comments section.
