MORE DLC WILL INTERSECT
THREE NEW DLC CHARACTERS REVEALED FOR BLAZBLUE CROSS TAG BATTLE
With BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle set to debut at EVO 2018, the reveals for the DLC members are starting to speed up. Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long were revealed to be free DLC that will be available as soon as the game is released, however, with 20 DLC characters planned for the game, 18 are still missing.
A few weeks ago, the first DLC pack (consisting of three characters) was revealed. Now the identities of the second pack (also consisting of three characters) are known. Joining the fight will be members of the BlazBlue, Persona 4 and Under-Night In Birth franchises (still looking for more RWBY).
The android Aigis (Persona 4), psychotic Carmine (Under-Night) and member of the legendary heroes Jubei (BlazBlue) will all be released as the second DLC pack (after the game’s release).
Jubei is more of a big deal as a playable character, since he has been prevalent in the BlazBlue story since the first game, but never playable until BlazBlue Central Fiction. Even in the latest BlazBlue game, he was only available as DLC, meaning he has barely had time to make an impression on players.
The current roster is now as follows:
Ragna the Bloodegde (BlazBlue)
Jin Kisaragi (BlazBlue)
Rachel Alucard (BlazBlue)
Noel Vermillion (BlazBlue)
Iron Tager (BlazBlue)
Makoto Nanaya (BlazBlue)
Nu-Number 13 (BlazBlue)
Yu Narukami (Persona 4)
Yosuke Hanamura (Persona 4)
Chie Satonaka (Persona 4)
Yukiko Amagi (Persona 4)
Ruby Rose (RWBY)
Weiss Schnee (RWBY)
The known DLC roster is now as follows:
Blake Belladonna (RWBY)
Yang Xiao Long (RWBY)
Trinity The Platinum (BlazBlue)
Kanji Tatsumi (Persona 4)
Aigis (Persona 4)
This new batch of DLC means that the Under-Night and Persona 4 franchises are still tied at six characters while BlazBlue now has 12. Blake and Yang ensure that team RWBY is complete but the RWBY franchise is still underrepresented with four characters.
The game releases on June 5th in the U.S. and upon the game’s release will consist of 22 characters (Blake and Yang are available right away). These two DLC packs have revealed six new characters so there are now 12 remaining characters left. Arc Systems Works essentially has two more months to announce the remaining four character packs.
