VELVET, OH VELVET…
Arc System Works took the opportunity this weekend to reveal the lucky fighters chosen for Version 2.0 of its anime fighter BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. The furious five will be part of the nine-character DLC pack headed to all platforms in November.
As you can see in the wild trailer below, the crossover fighter will be welcoming BlazBlue Central Fiction’s Celica A. Mercury and Susanoo, Persona 4 Arena’s Elizabeth and Tohru Adachi, and finally Under Night In-Birth’s super-classy lassie Hilda. These five characters join the previously announced Yumi from Senran Kagura, RWBY’s Neo Politan, and Akatsuki and Blitztank from Akatsuki Blitzkampf.
The Version 2.0 expansion for Cross Tag Battle will include an overhaul of the game’s UI and menus, along with a plethora of balance tweaks, a new scenario, character colours, bug fixes and other content. The technical upgrades will be available as a free download to all players, but the character pack will set you back around $25 when it officially drops November 21.
BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is available now on PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.
