I'm pretty sure the new content will come out as DLC in other regions

Not again, surely if they do this is means get less people to play and the game dies that much faster? And it mentions "extra moves" so does that mean that there will have to be 2 seperate stratagy guides? And EU BlazBlue players will not be able to go into non-EU competitions?

If they give us exclusive content at least make it a paid for DLC outside the EU so that everyone gets it but we get a bonus for waiting. It seems almost redundent to say anymore but screw Georestrictions and all non-technical exclusives.

Agreed. 
 
It sounds like more of an update revision, like Street Fighter gets on occasion, or like Guilty Gear to Guilty Gear X. I just hope that the updates get some kind of release outside the EU, otherwise there's gonna be almost no online community, fighters die almost instantly in Europe.

If the new content doesn't come out as DLC, I'm going to be pissed.

FINALLY! I've been waiting for an official announcement about this.
 
I'm pretty sure they'll include an update that enables all the new characters on all regions after EU launch. Then after a period of time there will be a DLC for few bucks to use the new characters yourself.  That would atleast be the most sensible thing to do.

FUCK YEAH!

YES this is good news. Being in europe is sucky because we always get stuff later, however the majority of the time we special editions or extra content to make up for the delay

Even if they release the extras as DLC, I'll probably import it regardless.

" new gameplay content not available anywhere, like new characters and moves."
 
Well, since I live in the US and bought the game here, I'm hoping this stuff gets released as DLC or something. I hope it won't cost too much though. :(

Thank god for that. Too bad I already imported it. :D Ah well, I wouldn't have waited till 2010 anyway...
 
I'm gonna go ahead and assume that "new gameplay content not available anywhere, like new characters and moves" means that AT THE MOMENT it's not available anywhere. Otherwise this would just be horrifically stupid.

Yea imported it about a week ago, typical, but still glad I did.. Hopfully it will be DLC, otherwise I may have to picked it up. Heres hoping Tsubaki will be a new char!

Seems like I'll own two copies of this, considering I imported the limited edition thinking we'd never see it over here. Oh well!

I would assume that it will later come out as DLC. If it doesn't...

I have to echo the belief that this new content will be available as DLC and will just be exclusive to the European game discs.

Good to see more people get to enjoy it. Please make the content DLC though...I would buy it, and I never buy DLC.
