Majority credit goes to Kheapathic (http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/members/kheapathic.html) of ps3t.org for his guide. (http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/blazblue-continuum-shift/61138-blaz-blue-continuum-shift-story-mode-guide.html)

Section 1. Introduction
This is a flowchart of every character's story mode in Blaz Blue: Continuum Shift. I have the fights labeled as "stage" and the decision branch paths as "branch." The fights I have notes under are to notify readers about any specific handicaps on either side of the fight. One positive change from Calamity Trigger is you do not have to go through and lose every fight to reach 100% and the game gives you a retry option if you lose. Only Ragna is available to play at first, clearing his story mode opens up other characters and clearing their story will open more.


Section 2. Endings
True Ending - The most cannon of all possible endings.

Bad Ending - An ending that usually ends with something bad happening to the character. This ending will always be followed with a "Help me Kokonoe" scene.

Funny Ending - Also called a "Gag Reel." These endings have the characters in hilarious situations and are not to be taken seriously.

Some characters endings are only opened up when another character has obtained a certain ending.


A * will reference a note at the bottom of each characters section.


Section 3. How to Read
[Character Name] Who you're playing as.

[Stage # - Character] The Title order and character you will combat.

[Win : Story Arc] The next step of the story if you win the battle.

[Lose: Story Arc] The next step of the story if you lose the battle. If it says Game Over, there is no change if you lose.

[Note: Info] Any special notes about the battle, handicaps and such. I.E. Jin has two big ones in his story.

Nice work! I will use this guide. A quick question though, when you get a 100%, do you always unlock a secret voice track thing? I got 100% with Noel and I didn't unlock any voice track thing.

No, not many characters unlock voices. You can buy them in the marketplace as well.

I got it all figured out now.


Also, I thought I would share what I did to get the Tsubaki Bad Ending. I only did a DD finish to Carl and I beat Noel normal and I got the bad ending.

I'd just like to add I have 100% completion on Tsubaki's story and do not have Hakumen's story unlocked. There is likely another requirement for unlocking it.

Do you have to lose every battle for 100%, like in BB:CT?

Awesome work and effort - also made me laugh, 'cause one of the "Help me Kokonoe!" things unlocked during Noel's Bad Ending (the only one I got), and she mentioned looking up a flowchart and that I should piss off. XD

No, you should get the True Ending there.
I know because I Distortion Finished both and got the Bad Ending, then reloaded the save right before Noel and got the True Ending.

Good way to tell them apart is that True Endings always say "END" in the bottom corner, while Bad Endings say "One of the many possibilities of the Continuum Shift..." across the screen.

not sure if im reading this right but i got jin's true ending and i havent played tsubaki's yet

this is what happend i played though it it gave me no awnser option then i played again and it forced me into the gag reel

i have ragna at 88% and noel complete and jin sits at 89% (could noel count also?)

i still need to get rags and jin "bad" endings

edit"
It's actually Rachel's story that does :)

Just a correction needs to be made to that guide.


Tsubaki's bad ending requirements are all wrong.

Her bad ending activates if you overuse her D moves or her distortion drives or astral. It doesn't matter who you fight or how you killed them, just how much you used her Drives and distortions. I got the bad ending last night, did not fight Carl, did not distortion finish anybody but did use her drive moves a lot.

I still need to go through Story Mode... Today was honestly my worst gaming day ever. After 12 hours at work, I come home to relieve some stress online and I go on a 9 game losing streak to a bunch of level 3 players...

I was so depressed I stopped playing T_T

Aww thats sounds horrible! I just recently started going through arcade and story mode. I was going to do those after I beat the tutorial so I can learn how to play the game but screw tutorial XD
And next time instead of doing tht we could always have another astral battle rematch :P

So true, tutorial is kind of a pain (at least for people at the pathetic level I'm at :p). I'm honestly having more trouble getting through Intermediate than specific character strategies. >.> button mashing ftw ^_^

Yeah I have been stuck at the Counter tutuorial on the intermediate level since I bought this game T.T I fell like so stupid because I cant beat tutorial- and those are supposed to be really easy >.<

I'd love a rematch. I'm definitely not choosing Lambda next time because:

1) my range sucks (funny to hear because it is LAMBDA after all)
2) 222D is such an annoying input because I always deviate to the sides.

But yeah, when I went through tutorial, I remember you saying you couldn't pass the counters one. When I came to it, I paid extra attention, but it turns out it's not as hard as I thought it would be :woop:.

TC Just wanted to help you with some corrections:

Forgot to mention Carl's story unlocks Litchi's.

Lamba's bad ending is red when it shouldn't be.

Both Nu and Tager in Lamba's story are unlimited.

Just a few last fixes I noticed when using this guide.

Edit: A few other things need fixing too in Arakune's story-

The fight against Nu, she's unlimited

Arakune is unlimited in the fight against Carl

You DO NOT need to lose to Hazama in the funny ending. I never did and ended up getting 100% although I did that part last if that means anything and I've already 100%'d Litchi if she means something as well.

Some good info in there, but just so you know, Nu is always unlimited as she is the unlimited version of Lambda.

08-26-2010, 08:20 PM
Wow I actually didn't know that! At first I told myself "Wow, that's pretty cool that they still included Nu in this even though she's non-playable" Guess I was wrong lol.

ParoXyzm
08-26-2010, 11:47 PM
Yeah, :P.

Nu is unlockable. Just beat Score Attack with Lambda (Nu becomes Lambda's Unlimited so you can play her in versus, etc.) She is also playable in Legion Mode.
