New DLC character announced for BlazBlue

Download on game's October release.

A new character will be available to download for superb fighting game BlazBlue: Continuum Shift when the game launches this October on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

He's called Valkenhayn R Hellsing, a previously non-playable character in the BlazBlue story mode.

Valkenhayn can transform into a werewolf, making him fast, powerful and agile. But he can't block in wolf form. Is that how it works in Twilight?

He joins Makoto Nanaya on the DLC character list set to go live when the game is released next month.

Continuum Shift, from Japanese developer Arc System Works, is the sequel to BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. ASW created what many genre fans consider to be the greatest fighting game ever: Guilty Gear.

That's why you should care. But just in case you need a stronger nudge, Matt Edwards reviewed for Eurogamer in August and returned with an 8/10.
