BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle (or BureiBuru Kurosu Tagu Batoru in Japanese - which I think sounds awesome) is a crossover 2D fighting game featuring 2-VS-2 gameplay and characters from the Blazblue series, Atlus's Persona 4 Arena, and French Bread's Under Night In-Birth, and Rooster Teeth's anime-style web animation RWBY. The character art for this game is drawn by Higuchi Konomi who previously worked as a character designer of the XBlaze series.

Anime 2D Fighter Fans... Get hype.

Details are scare at the moment, but judging from the early trailer it appears there will be a universal super meter for all characters (but of course, this could change). Naturally, the game will feature tag combos that can end with super moves, and it appars characters will retain most of their classic moves and animations. Stay tuned on FightersGeneration.com for the latest details and news about BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle.

First Impression:

I was wondering if the Blazblue series would truly "take a break" after the story concluding in Blazblue: Central Fiction. A crossover fighting game is the perfect way to keep Blazblue active in the fighting game climate of 2018. Personally, I'm happy to see the return of Persona 4 Arena characters and pretty hype for Under Night In-Birth to mix things up as well. I know nothing about RWBY, so those characters will be completely new to me.

Needless to say, character reveals for BBCTB will be pretty hype. It would be natural for Arc System Works fans to want Guilty Gear characters to be represented in the game as well. But since GGXrd uses a completely different (3D) graphics engine, Arc System Works would have to redraw some brand new 2D Guilty Gear character sprites for them to appear in the game. I could actually see them doing that for 1 or 2 characters... DLC maybe? Just an early prediction.

In any case, even as a "casual" fan of 2D anime fighting games, this project looks pretty exciting... Stay tuned!
