The current BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle roster includes Ragna the Bloodedge and Jin Kisaragi from BlazBlue, Hyde from Under Night In-Birth, Yu Narukami from Persona 4, and even Ruby Rose from the RWBY animated series.

What makes the new fighting game unique, however, is that it is crossover title, similar to Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. It was announced at EVO 2017 championships over the weekend, and is set for release sometime in 2018.

Going off the first trailer, which you can see above, it looks like Cross Tag Battle is a 2v2 tag battle game where you choose characters from the different franchises.

On top of the new game, the developer and publisher also shared news on its latest 2D fighting game BlazBlue CentralFiction, that will get a new character this summer, Jubei.

Central Fiction was released a year ago on PlayStation 4, and completed BlazBlue's sprawling narrative.

Watch the Jubei announcement trailer below. Though the addition seems completely out of left field, the show's fans have been calling for her to be in a fighting game a for a while.
