Today Arc System Works released a brand new gameplay trailer of its crossover fighting game BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle.

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,
At the moment the DLC doesn’t yet have a firm release date, but we know that it’s coming in the spring.
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is currently available for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can check out the trailer below.
An arcade version is also coming (and incidentally that’s the version shown in the trailer) in the spring, but that one will be limited to Japan, so you should probably not expect to play it in the ailing western arcades.
