BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is Arc System Works’ latest fighting game, planned for a 2018 release. And several new characters have just been unveiled for the crossover title, including Persona 4’s Chie Satonaka.
Originally appearing in Atlus and Arc System Works’ Persona 4 Arena, the trailer demonstrates Chie’s combos in battle, working closely in a tag team with fellow newcomer Noel Vermillion from the BlazBlue series. Waldstein from Under Night in-Birth Exe:Late is also coming to Cross Tag Battle, rounding out the trailer’s new character roster.
Chie joins her friends Yosuke Hanamura and Persona 4 protagonist Yu Narukami, who were both previously announced for the fighter. And Persona isn’t the only series making a crossover appearance in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, either. RWBY’s Ruby Rose and Weiss Schnee are both appearing in the game as well, much to fans’ delight, as well as several other characters from Under Night in-Birth Exe.
BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle focuses on tag-team fighting gameplay that draws on combat mechanics found in previous Arc System Works fighters. The game was previously announced for Nintendo Switch earlier this week, and will also be available on PC and PlayStation 4. All three versions launch in 2018.
