BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle had an open beta this weekend, and it appears that unannounced DLC characters for the game have been leaked from dataminers through the Nintendo Switch version of the beta. [Thanks, @OtherEhm.]


[Note: Since the data-mined info is likely be legit, I recommend those who don’t want to be spoiled on the game’s roster to skip this article.]






Now that you’ve been warned, here we go:

There hasn’t been any official word from Arc System Works so we’ll take it with a grain of salt, but these things tend to be pretty accurate for the most part, as we’ve recently seen with Dragon Ball FighterZ.


BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle releases for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in Japan and Asia on May 31, 2018. The game releases in North America on June 5 and in Europe in Summer 2018. In case you missed it, check out its flashy opening animation in our previous report.
