-->'''Mori''': And PS4 [=PS4=] & Xbox One versions while also being for PS3! [=PS3=]! With cross play between PS3 [=PS3=] & PS4! [=PS4=]! And nerfed Kokonoe!



** To wit, fans have been asking for Kokonoe so much (and so far, to no avail prior to ''CP''[='s=] console port), that Valkenhayn's "Help Me, Professor Kokonoe!" segment in ''Extend'' exists only to poke fun at the entire ordeal. Mori probably has graduated to TrollingCreator after that announcement around the time of the localized version. The reveal that Kokonoe would indeed become playable rescinded things a bit, but only for the [=PS3=] fans, as 360 fans will not only miss out on Kokonoe, but ''Chronophantasma'' entirely. Following that, Kokonoe turned out to be [[GameBreaker broken as hell]] and Mori refuses to rebalance her for ''CP'', so--depending on how much you care about tiers vs. character playability--[[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor the PS3 fans still may have ended up being trolled despite their "wish" coming true]].

** Subverted; Litchi ''is'' Chinese, as is Jubei. Both are small continuity errors; Jubei existed before the Hierachical cities, yet his birthplace is listed in one (the 12th, to be exact), while Litchi was officially born in Shanghai, which shouldn't exist anymore. The Clovers are possible subversions as well; they're born in American region and they look the part.

** Stranger still; the mindset doesn't exist for ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. It is likely that ''[=BlazBlue=]'' having a more plot-heavy and spoiler-filled story than its predecessor (outside of [[AllThereInTheManual supplemental materials]]) has something to do with ASW's stance on the matter. This is justified, [[ValuesDissonance by Japanese standards]], since spoilers are disliked in Japan and this is somewhat normal in Japanese corporative culture. As ''Xrd'' takes on [=BlazBlue's=] approach to storytelling (except without fights to break up the talking), however, it too is subjected to crackdowns.

** An example that isn't Trolling is the subtle hints of the first Murakumo Unit, Alpha No.01 -A- pocalypse, who mysteriously looks like a female Ragna fused with Nu. She first appeared in the Arc 25th anniversary artbook as [[http://i.imgur.com/VhYYTNY.jpg ???]] . Mori has since been [[https://mobile.twitter.com/zatuyoP/status/634013721937907713 posting ]] [[http://i.imgur.com/wroMwAL.jpg designs]] [[https://mobile.twitter.com/zatuyoP/status/657663487674597377 on Twitter]], where he also revealed her full name, but little else. Her canon status is unknown.

* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: Celica and Naoto actually debuted in a series of light novels (''BlazbluePhaseShift'' and ''Bloodedge Experience'' respectively) that are never localized outside Japan. So overseas-wise, the two characters debuted in ''CP'' and ''CF'' repsectively. Confusingly, they are actually plot-important characters who have ties with a good number of the cast, and their stories in the games plays off the stories in the novels which occidentals have little to no knowledge about.
