Two of Arc System Works’ latest fighting games will appear on Xbox consoles. The Tokyo Game Show 2022 Xbox Stream confirmed that BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle and Guilty Gear Strive will be available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X in Spring 2023.

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is a crossover fighting game featuring characters from multiple franchises. The game launched with characters from BlazBlueUnder Night In-BirthPersona 4 Arena, and RWBY. Arc System Works later added new characters from Arcana HeartSenran Kagura, and Akatsuki Blitzkampf into the roster.

Both Guilty Gear Strive and BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle are currently available on PlayStation 4, PC, and arcades. The latest Guilty Gear title is also available on PlayStation 5, while the BlazBlue crossover game also appears on Nintendo Switch. Arc System Works will release both fighting games for Xbox One and Xbox Series X in Spring 2023.
