The PlayStation Portable finally gets some crazy fast-paced brawling action, in the form of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. Even though it's a pint-sized edition of the console versions released earlier in 2010, Arc System Works has translated almost every feature and detail into the PSP so you can truly take your battles on the road.

12 characters feature in the game's lineup, such as Taokaka and Tager, and you can access Unlimited versions of all of the fighters to add even more gameplay possibilities. Pick a combatant and dive right into the action with a control system that's simple but includes a lot of depth.

Along with a weak, medium and strong attack, characters have their own unique 'Drive' move. Building up a 'heat meter' by dealing and receiving attacks allows you to execute devastating 'distortion drive' manoeuvres, and you can take advantage of the 'Rapid Cancels' and 'Ukemi Tactics' to really throw your opponent off as well.

Along with the traditional Arcade, Versus, Story, Training and Score Attack modes from the home console versions, this portable edition includes some brand new features. A Shop mode allows you to purchase illustrations and Unlimited forms of characters with in-game currency, while the Legion mode has you commanding an army and conquering a world map!

Take the fight to your friends with the ad-hoc multiplayer function – four players can lobby in a room and play with custom rule sets. Then once all is prepared, one-on-one matches take place wirelessly while other players spectate.
