Today, during EVO Japan 2018, Arc System Works revealed a bunch of new characters coming to BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, including the fifth franchise joining the roster.
We’re getting Naoto Kurogane from BlazBlue Central Fiction, Teddy from Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Seth from Under Night In-Birth, and Heart Aino from Arcana Heart 3 LoveMax Six Stars!!!!!!.
Yes, you heard it right. The fifth franchise (or “fate”) to join the popular crossover fighter is Arcana Heart.
The new fighters will be introduced sometime this spring.
Yet, that’s not all of the surprises we’re getting today, as the end of the trailer teases a sixth franchise that will join the game “soon.” Unfortunately, no hint was provided on what this series could be.
Incidentally, the trailer also highlights the arcade version, which will become operational in Japan this spring.
If you’re unfamiliar with Arcana Heart, it’s an arcade-focused fighting game franchise that debuted in 2005. Its latest release was Arcana Heart 3 LoveMax Six Stars!!!!!! (with six exclamation marks) in 2014. Incidentally, that’s already available on Steam,
You can check out the trailer below and take a look at the new characters, while you start wondering what the sixth franchise should be.
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is currently available for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
