Today’s the final day for EVO 2018, and fighting game fans will surely attest that the event has had a plethora of exciting moments ever since it kicked off on Friday. One of those moments certainly involved the developer Arc System Works announcing nine new DLC characters coming to BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle during the title’s finals at EVO 2018, with the fresh roster members set to release across the three different Character Packs 4, 5, and 6, tomorrow on August 6, 2018.
As seen below in Arc System works’ trailer for BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle‘s new characters, this season’s roster includes Mitsuru Kirijo from Persona 4 Arena, Izayoi from BlazBlue, and Merkava from Under Night In-Birth in Character Pack 4. Then there’s Yuzhuhira from UNIB, Mai Natsume from BlazBlue, and Akihiko Sanda from P4A in Character Pack 5. Rounding out the new brawlers on the way are Nine The Phantom from BlazBlue, Mika from UNIB, and Labyrs from P4A in Character Pack 6.
For those BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle fans looking forward to obtaining the nine new DLC characters, each of the aforementioned Character Packs will set players back $5 a piece, which isn’t too shabby considering competing fighting games like Injustice 2 charges around $20 for its Fighter Packs. Plus, it seems as if players can look forward to the addition of even more roster additions down the line. As it so happens, the trailer also teases that a new franchise will be incorporated into the game, as a pink diamond is added into the mix of title’s blue, yellow, purple, and red diamond icons, along with text that reads, “A new fate intertwines…”.
Naturally, Arc System Works didn’t reveal who else is going to be added to BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, but it’s safe to say that a lot of the fan base will keep their eyes peeled for as much information as possible when it comes to finding out the character’s identity. Those aren’t on the hunt for the next franchise crossing over with B:CTB will likely remain content for the time being with the confirmed nine new roster members on the way.
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is available now for Nintendo Switch, PC, and PlayStation 4.
