Arc System Works announced nine new characters for BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle after the game’s finals concluded at Evo 2018. BlazBlue’s Nine, Izayoi, and Mai; Under Night In-Birth’s Yuzuriha, Mika, and Merkava; and Persona’s Akihiko, Mitsuru, and Labrys will be available on August 6.
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is coming to PS4, Switch, and PC on June 5. Arc System Works’ fighting game currently has a revealed roster of 20 characters but plans to add 20 more, starting with Blake Belladonna from RWBY, through DLC. That’s outraged a number of fans although it’s unclear how it will all be priced.
BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle will come to the Nintendo Switch in 2018. A Switch launch version was quietly revealed in a trailer featuring a few more roster reveals, including RWBY’s Weiss and BlazBlue’s own Rachel and Hazama.
