The newest issue of Famitsu has revealed that the upcoming fighting game BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will feature an original story mode called “Episode Mode.” Apparently this mode will allow players to experience brand new stories from each of four participating titles; BlazBlue, RWBY, Persona 4 Arena, and Under Night In-Birth.
Although not much is known about the story mode currently, it does seem like these are going to be four separate episodes for each title. It’s unknown how much the characters from each game will interact in the story, although one of the images on the Famitsu page below does show Ragna from BlazBlue and Chie from Persona 4 together on a screen.
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will release June 5 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Make sure to take a look at the most recent footage for the game featuring Weiss, Noel, Yu, and more characters. You can also see some thoughts from the creator of BlazBlue on the recent DLC controversy for the game, in an interview with Destructoid.
