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.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
