EVO 2017 may have come and gone, but Arc System Works’ Blazblue Cross Tag Battle announcement has ensured that fighting game fans have plenty to look forward to in the future.

The Blazblue Cross Tag Battle trailer begins somewhat cryptically, with Ragna the Bloodege and Jin Kisaragi discussing various “possibilities” (most likely hinting at the game’s story). After their short conversation, Ragna and Jin are joined by Hyde and Yu Narukami and begin their battle. The list of confirmed Cross Tag Battle characters thus far is as follows:

  • Ragna the Bloodedge – Blazblue
  • Jin Kisaragi – Blazblue
  • Yu Narukami – Persona 4 Arena
  • Hyde – Under Night In-Birth
  • Ruby – RWBY

Blazblue Cross Tag Battle is slated for release sometime in 2018. No further information on the game has been given out thus far. Regardless of which confirmed characters have caught your attention, there’s certainly no denying that this an exciting time for Arc System Works fans. What are your thoughts on the Cross Tag Battle trailer? Which characters would would you like to see included in the game? Do you think that we’ll see even more series added?

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
