BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle shows off RWBY's Neo Politan


Don’t just eat the chocolate part

Arc System Works has released a trailer for the next character headed to crossover fighter BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. Joining the roster from anime series RWBY is the troublesome, but highly fashionable, Neo Politan.

Bedecked in beautiful Victorian garb coloured to match her ice-cream nom de plume, Neo Politan is anything but vanilla. Despite her classy and charming appearance – of which I’m insanely jealous – Neo has no problem getting into the thick of the fight, laying a beatdown on her opponents with her trusty parasol. Neo has the ability to dash-teleport across the battlefield in the blink of an eye, and can even counter a strike into suddenly disappearing and then reappearing behind her attacker. Nothing personnel, kid.

Neo Politan will arrive as part of the huge “Version 2.0” update that is coming to CTB on November 21. Costing around $25, the expansion will include nine new DLC characters, along with a new scenario and a selection of character colours. Free-for-all will be a patch that will overhaul CTB’s UI and mechanics, along with bug fixes and a laundry list of balance changes.

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is available now on PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.
