Share And Comment

Arc System Works and Zen United have announced a brand new character who will join the ever expanding BlazBlue universe. Valkenhayn R Hellsing will be available to download for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift when it is released this October on the PlayStation 3. Valkenhayn R Hellsing is the most hotly anticipated of BlazBlue’s downloadable characters – bringing a whole new fighting style to BlazBlue’s diverse and critically acclaimed roster of combatants.

BlazBlue Continuum Shift launches this October

Valkenhayn’s features include:

  • Valkenhayn, previously a non-playable character in the BlazBlue story mode as Rachel Alucard’s butler, now joins the fray as a playable fighter.
  • The key to his fighting style is a Drive ability that allows him to transform into a werewolf at the touch of a button.
  • His human form gives him range, but greatly reduced speed.
  • His wolf form makes him fast, powerful and agile – allowing him to close distances almost instantaneously.
  • Valkenhayn is unable to block in Wolf form and reverts to human form if damaged.
  • A regenerating wolf Gauge allows Valkenhayn to transform into a wolf at will as long as the gauge is not exhausted.
  • Although predominantly a close range character, using Valkenhayn’s speed and agility, advanced players will be able to dominate all sectors of the screen.
  • The DLC will also include brand new Tutorials and Challenge mode for Valkenhayn.

Valkenhayn R Hellsing will be available alongside previously announced DLC character Makoto Nanaya when BlazBlue Continuum Shift launches this October.

I'm a big gaming fan who has been playing games since ever since Pokemon Yellow was released in the year 2000. I'm just glad that there are decent rugby games on the PS3 now after years of nothing. I need another Uncharted game...NOW!!!!!
