BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle Announces Nine, New Characters, Teases New Franchise

During the finals for the BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle tournament at Evo last night, Arc System Works announced the next three character packs coming to the game. Nine, and eight other characters, will be joining the crossing of fates on August 6th. The trailer also teased that a new franchise would be joining the fray. The game’s logo, an assortment of four different color squares to represent each of the four franchises in the game, was shown to morph in to five squares adding a new pink one. “A new fate intertwines…” shows up on screen to hammer the point home.
