The update numbered 1.5, will come to consoles and PC on May 21. It will bring balance adjustments equivalent to the recently-launched arcade version, on top of implementing the new DLC characters.

The new characters were announced at EVO Japan 2018 including Naoto Shirogane from BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Teddy from Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, and Seth from Under Night In-Birth Exe. Late[st] and Heart Aino from Arcana Heart 3 LoveMax Six Stars!!!!!!.

The new characters will be paid DLC, but they will require no additional purchase for those who own the Deluxe Edition.

On top of that, the base game will be discounted to celebrate the update.

While the addition of a sixth franchise was also teased a while ago, we still don’t have specific info about it, and it won’t come with this update.

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. If you’re interested, that’s already available on Steam,

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is currently available for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. There is also an arcade version in Japan, but of course, that’s not available in the west.

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.
