A teaser page for Blaz Blue: Calamity Trigger PC has opened, the page lists cross platform play and free DLC as features. The DLC will likely consist of the content the 360 version received, while the cross platform play means PC users will be able to take on the 360 players. The PC site also has a spec chart. In the chart, circle means required and double circle means recommended. Triangle means the item has been confirmed as compatible.

That's awesome news, but I'll be waiting for BB: CS this summer.  Maybe they will add that if there is a PC version of CS in the works.

@Linkyshinks:   Only in Japan and France?  That's lame.   :(

 It's a PC version, that will only be released in Japan and France. Windows has language settings - do the right thing :)   There will be PC version of CS if this fares well in Japan, or if it does particularly well in France :?. I'm still puzzled as to why the publishers are releasing it there. Is there really a big PC gaming community over the pond, I know there's one in Germany but I've never heard of France having one... "
France and the UK have historically been two of the largest PC gaming countries.  Don't forget that some of the largest and most successful games studios including Delphine Software (Another World, Flashback), Cryo (Dune games among others) and of course Ubisoft and Infogrames (now called Atari) come specifically from France while many other famous industry stalwarts like Peter Molyeneux and Julian Rignall among many others come from the UK.  Don't forget mate, that France was the first country in the world to host a country wide internet type network with Minitel in the 80s.

@Linkyshinks: afaik pc-gaming in germany is quite big as you said but i don't think that the interest in blazblue is that big here... 
 
i only heard about blazblue once, and that guy seemed pretty lonely in this regard :D

Anime is very popular in France, perhaps that's the reason why.
