Arc System Works has announced the streaming guidelines for BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle ahead of launch. While the company encourages streaming, it is harshly shutting down any footage of Episode Mode, the game’s campaign, in the name of restricting spoilers. Those who decide to have Episode Mode or music-only streams will see Arc System Works filing a content ID claim or calling for an account suspension or channel strike.


Here are the exact rules from Arc System Works saying what can and can not be streamed.


  • Stream matches to your heart’s content. Either against other players (local or online), or against the CPU. Show off your mad skills.
  • Put together tutorial videos to break down characters, teams, strategies, or show how to pull off that amazing combo. More power to you!
  • Show us those online shenanigans, dance parties, and the like.


  • Stream Episode Mode at all. Just don’t. If you have to, very short clips of Episode Mode content up to Chapter 2 are permitted for video content only. Any longer clips, spoilers, or anything else is a danger area, so really, just avoid this all together.
  • Stream or upload any music-only content. Music playing in the background during matches, online lobbies, and etc are totally fine. A soundtrack rip or upload is not.


BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will come to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam in North America on June 5, 2018 and in Europe on June 22, 2018. It is immediately available in Japan and Asia.
