Following the conclusion of the BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Grand Finals at EVO 2019, four new characters were announced by Arc System Works for the title's version 2.0 update. The first character revealed was Yumi from Senran Kagura: Estival Versus, who will utilize fans and ice to take out her opponents. Two characters from the title Akatsuki Blitzkampf were shown: Blitztank and Akatsuki. Akatsuki will be able to use electric fists and kicks to beat down his opponents. Blitztank is just a giant tank that will be able to blow its opponents away. Both Senran Kagura: Estival Versus and Akatsuki Blitzkampf are new series, or "fates," to be featured in the massive cross-over title. The fourth and final character revealed was Neo Politan from the RWBY series. Check out see the trailer below to see these characters in action.
Cross Tag Battle's version 2.0 update will release on November 21. The content pack for this update will cost gamers $24.99. Though only four characters have been shown, the pack will come with nine characters in total. It is safe to assume that the other five characters will be announced as November comes closer. The content pack will also include a new scenario, new character interactions, and colors.
Along with the content pack, version 2.0 of Cross Tag Battle will include a free update that will provide major balances for the game's roster. It will also provide a balance adjustment that will allow players to battle against version 2.0 characters without buying the content pack.
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is available now on the PC, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch.
