BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle
Best PS4 Games in June 2018
Arc System Works has a wealth of experience with fighting games, as the creators of Guilty Gear, BlazBlue, and most recently Dragon Ball FighterZ. BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is a bit different from the rest, however, as it combines characters from four different series into one. Three different Arc System Work’s games come together with BlazBlue, Under Night In-Birth, and Persona 4 Arena. Meanwhile, Rooster Teeth’s original animation RWBY comes into the mix with Ruby Rose, Weiss, Blake, and Yang.
For fans of fighting games this is a huge crossover, and the diverse cast changes up gameplay from the previous installments of all of these series. Cross Tag Battle uses a 2vs2 battle system that lets you tag in characters and use them for assists, similar to Marvel vs. Capcom. There are elements from the three other fighting game series, but Cross Tag Battle still uses unique systems for a new experience. While the game has run into some controversy for its DLC plan, with 20 characters available in the base game and 20 as DLC, it’s still an ambitious crossover that any fighting game fan should keep an eye on.
