BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle DLC and Release Date Announcedon January 15, 2018 by Max Williams
Arc System Works has announced that BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will be coming to Japan on May 31st and North America on June 5th! On top of this, the BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle DLC schedule was also revealed, and it’ll be bringing 20 extra characters, including RWBY‘s Blake Belladonna! Check out the new trailer below:
The base roster will include the 20 characters already announced, with 20 more on the way as DLC, and Blake Belladonna is the first one that’s been revealed!
It’s still full of mysteries at the moment, but the breakdown of the BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle DLC schedule currently looks like this:
– Additional Character All-in-One Pack
– Additional Character: Blake Belladonna
– Additional Character Set Vol. 1: ???, ???, and ???
– Additional Character Set Vol. 2: ???, ???, and ???
– Additional Character Set Vol. 3: ???, ???, and ???
– Additional Character Set Vol. 4: ???, ???, and ???
– Additional Character Set Vol. 5: ???, ???, and ???
– Additional Character Set Vol. 6: ???, ???, and ???
– Additional Character: ???
It’s about time we saw Blake announced, though it’s a bit of a surprise to see she’ll be DLC. Presumably, Yang will be in that big bunch of DLC characters too – probably as the solo character at the end of the schedule. It’s a real shame we’re unlikely to see more RWBY characters included though. I guess we’ll just have to cross our fingers for a full-on RWBY fighting game some time!
