THE TEASING HAS FINALLY STOPPED
BLAZBLUE, PERSONA 4 AND UNDER-NIGHT INTRODUCE MORE FIGHTERS TO THE CROSS-OVER
After a slew of reveal trailers churning one after another, Arc System Works has finally showed signs of slowing down in reveals. Chances are they are waiting for the holiday season to unleash a greater surprise. The last trailer was a month ago revealing Noel Vermillion (BlazBlue) Waldstein (Under-Night) and Chie Satonaka (Persona 4).
Once again, the RWBY franchise is still under-represented with the franchise only having two characters (Ruby Rose and Weiss Schnee) while the other three franchises form the other 14 characters of the game’s roster. BlazBlue being the lead has six characters while Under-Night and Persona 4 share four. The newest trailer reveals Yukiko Amagi from Persona 4, Gourdeau from Under-Night and the strange addition of Azreal from BlazBlue.
Gourdeau and Yukiko are highly ingrained into the plots of their respective games while Azrael was a late addition to his franchise. Secondly, Azrael is not even a huge part of the BlazBlue franchise either. The trailer only reveals the roster so far, other details are not known so the option of DLC is still on the table. Most of the BlazBlue characters started off as DLC characters.
Here’s the updated roster:
Ragna the Bloodegde (BlazBlue)
Jin Kisaragi (BlazBlue)
Rachel Alucard (BlazBlue)
Noel Vermillion (BlazBlue)
Yu Narukami (Persona 4)
Yosuke Hanamura (Persona 4)
Chie Satonaka (Persona 4)
Yukiko Amagi (Persona 4)
Ruby Rose (RWBY)
Weiss Schnee (RWBY)
The game is slated for early 2018 and the trailer does not list any other reveal being left for 2017.
