(rough translation, and thanks Sesame for translating ones I needed help with)

Not taking any credits for this, just found it on dustloop.

Anyways, holy crazy banana it's really coming out in spring!!! :woop:

560pts for Platinum... meh

"BB CSII" will just be a free v1.03 patch, we're not getting any Arcade mode for the dlc characters it seems...
but... Challenge mode updated with CS II combos???! (just an interpretation for now, but if that's what they ment, this is really awesome!!)


Edited for :
-[Network] Valkenhayn will get additional experience. (360 only)

this... THIS!!! Just guessing here, but the association of "Valkenhayn" and "360 only" makes me think this is a poorly translated version of "FREAKING VALK ACHIEVEMENTS WILL BE FREAKING FIXED!!1111 WTF BBQ AWESOMNESS"

Infos straight from Aksys:

Official news (http://www.aksysgames.com/2011/04/15/blazblue-continuum-shift-patch-v1-03-coming-this-may/)
Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment software, is pleased to announce that the hit 2D fighting game for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, will be updated with all new content and bug fixes, taking the system version to 1.03. The data for system version 1.03 and Platinum the Trinity will be available in the month of May.

In this update, the new character “Platinum the Trinity” will be added for players to purchase at $7.99, or 560 Microsoft Points. This game add-on will include all of Platinum’s 24 colors, the Unlimited version of Platinum, and new Achievements/Trophies to unlock as well. Between the gender confusion and cool magical-item-based gameplay, Platinum will be a joy to play for both fans of cute adorable things and hardcore fighting game enthusiasts alike!

Also in this major update, the game balance will be brought up to speed with the arcade version of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II, including all of the character balance changes, additional system mechanics, and game engine adjustments. This is topped off with brand new Challenge Mode content for each character and a revised Tutorial Mode section to help bring you back up to speed. With all of this new additional content, there’s no better time to get back into BlazBlue: Continuum Shift!
No specific date though, just "May".

So yep Valk ach will be patched with the 1.03 balance patch, as well as improved online mode, new challenges and tutorial...


Best news ever.
A great game just got better and got back some of its lost appeal :Bounce:

I can also confirm that the Valkenhyan achievements works, and you have to do the same as the Makoto ones

I've only unlocked 2 of them so far:
http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/KP/LE/0oCLiGJhbC9CCRsBGl9TVkRBL2FjaC8wLzM2AAAAAOfn5-3r8jQ=.jpg Battle Butler

Dealt over 5,000 damage in a single combo using Valkenhayn.




http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/tR/4D/0ICLiGJhbC9MCRsBGl9TVkRBL2FjaC8wLzM4AAAAAOfn5-8sHqk=.jpg Three-Wolf Moon

Used the Unlimited version of Valkenhayn.


The last one is probably for completing x amount challenges with Valkenhyan, I would not be surprised if it was the the thing with Platinum the Trinity :)

It is, although challenges for older characters are different now. To plym, each character is 560 mc points.

Great, I'll try and finish the guide when I get home.
I have Valkenhayn and think I have just over 1000MSP spare.

Is Platinum worth the money?

I'd say she's as fun to play as as Makoto and Valkenhayn, so if you thought they were worth it so is she.

Loving her bubble special.

Anyone found out how to do her over 5000 damage combo yet? I've been trying, I realized her :xbut: DD in beginner mode ends with 4899.. something like that, and I've tried doing a decent combo before hand to make it pass the 5000 mark, but half way through the DD the combo is lost..

She's not gonna be as easy as the other 2, thats for sure, her Astral Finish only does like 1000+ points of damage.

InvidiaViribus
05-10-2011, 12:59 PM
An easy way to do Platinum's 5k is to go into versus with Tager, instant block to 100 heat (using two controllers), FC (6C) > RC > 2C > 2C > 236B > C > 632146C. I don' think it can get any easier than this because of the lenient timing.

i think you'll have to learn some of her the later challenges to figure it out, and then combo into the astral heat. (it usually does about 3500 dmg) i definately will try this when i get back home.

if anyones up for some games hit me up with a message :)

Both of their achievement sets are working.

InvidiaViribus's combo for For Whom The Bell Tolls works too and is quite simple to pull off. Many thanks. ;)

Also, I just noticed she plays rock paper scissors with her 5A pokes. I actually laughed out loud.

Good to hear and I just downloaded Platinum the Trinity. Half of her voice is Trunks in DBZ! Two of Valkenhayn's achievements I did get as well, so I can finally have completion on this game soon. Four achievements to go and all from DLC! :woop:

How To get Platinums 'For Whom the Bell Tolls' achievement, where you have to deal over 5000 dmg. In a single combo:

1. Get yourself set up with an oponent or extra controller, start an versus match. (Platinum needs to be in her Unlimited form)
2. Get your Heat Gauge up to about 50-100%
3. 236236 + D
4. Press D (she needs to have her 'bear staff' or 'Love Hammer' activated, do this by pressing 6+D/8+D)
5. It's raining teddy bears! Keep on mashing D for an extra effect.

Achievement unlocked ;)

The missiles one also works :) I couldnt do it with any of these 2 hammers, got it the first time with the one that shoots large missiles, not the yellow ones, its another blue one.

I also used this, but I didn't know you could mash it, so I just used negative state and danger state to reach 5k+.

I believe you can reach 5k+ easily with "5C xx 236B, 5C, 2C, 214C, j.C, j.C xx 236A, A, A, A" when the opponent is in danger state.

I assume it was one combo, I tried a couple of the ways mentioned here and got over 5000, including the 236236d + [6/8d]d one you mentioned, and a few more times with other combos.

I must have done (5C > 236B > 5C > 2C > 214C > (back-up) > 6C > 22C > 5C > j.B > j.C > dj.B > j.C > j.236A*AAA) at least 10 times before getting frustrated and looking online to see if anything was weird with the achievement.

i had no trouble getting the 5000 damage, i did it when playing with a friend today. just use her unlimited and combo her spin distortion with a few hits.

I'm not too sure what the problem with Platinum's 5k combo is.

1) Versus mode as U. Platinum.
2) Player 2 goes into Negative mode.
3) Player 2 goes into danger mode by wasting barrier.
4) Player 1 uses 632146C.
5) 6k damage. One input.

I suppose it does, but for many people who wish to avoid timing or intricate combos like the ones aforementioned, 632146C is nice, simple, and does not require any timing whatsoever.
