Featured Multi-platform News

Arc System Works has a massive presence at EVO this year with its highly successful Dragon Ball FighterZ being the main attraction and it’s newest release BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle gaining traction as the next great experience, Arc System Works has announced a massive update of DLC coming to Cross Tag Battle on August 6th in North America.

The trailer, shown at the EVO 2018, sees the game add 9 new fighters to the roster from 3 out of 4 of the properties represented in the game. Unfortunately, no RWBY characters were announced and despite the game’s director expressing extreme interest in adding 2B and 9S from Nier Automata, they also were not revealed. Instead, the following characters have been shown:

From BlazBlue: Nine, Izayoi, and Mai. Coming from Under Night In-Birth: Yuzuriha, Mika, and Merkava. Then, finally, Coming from Atlus’ Persona franchise: Akihiko, Mitsuru, and Labrys.

The most interesting aspect of this trailer was the new, fifth, colored tile added to the logo towards the tail end of the trailer. Is this a hint at another franchise joining the game? It seems, in the end, you can’t escape from crossing fate.
