BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle: Character Packs 4, 5 and 6 Announced!

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, or BBTAG, was released only 2 months ago to this day with the release of 3 Character packs, Blake and Yang since then. The game has been well accepted amongst the community with over 1,000 entrants for EVO 2018 which is taking place in Las Vegas from 3rd to 5th of August, so today is the last day if you’re interested in watching. Not only that, but Character Packs 4, 5 and 6 were also announced at the event!

Here are the 9 new characters coming to the game:


Nine the Phantom


Mai Natsume

Under Night In Birth:




Persona 4:

Akihiko Sanada

Mitsuru Kirijo


I’m not sure who will be contained in which Character Pack as of yet… But who cares because ALL 3 CHARACTER PACKS ARE BEING RELEASED AT THE SAME TIME! Not only that… but they are coming to North America (and Steam) on 6th August. THAT’S TOMORROW!

Although I’m disappointed that Kokonoe didn’t make the roster, I’m really pleased that Yuzuriha is being introduced. Mai Natsume, Mika and Nine the Phantom are catching my eye and are probably the characters I’m most looking forward to trying out. I’m still waiting for the day team JNPR will be announced though – that would be awesome!

The excitement is getting to me, even if my save file was accidentally deleted due to some issues with local save files and the Steam Cloud. As of yesterday I’m now starting from scratch… Oh well, at least with new characters being introduced I’ll have a good reason to play more!

BBTAG is currently part of the Steam free-to-play weekend, so if you haven’t played the game yet, now is your chance. The Basic Edition, Deluxe Edition and All-in-One DLC Character Bundle are also currently 10% off until tomorrow.
