BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is a fighting mashup of four different franchises. BlazBlue, Persona 4 (Arena), Under Night In-Birth, and RWBY are all represented here.

When Cross Tag Battle was initially announced, RWBY’s inclusion was arguably the most surprising inclusion. Producer Toshimichi Mori explained how the collaboration came to be in an interview with GamerHubTV.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle had previously been announced for North America and Europe. Thankfully, Europe won’t be left behind, as PQube has announced it will publish the game in PAL regions this summer.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will first appear in Japan on May 31. The North American release will follow on June 5.

During a live stream last night, Ace System Works confirmed that BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will include English dubs. Players will be able to choose between English and Japanese voices.

Arc System Works didn’t elaborate on the English dub. One interesting thing to note though is that Ruby was shown with an English voicing teamed up with Weiss who had Japanese voicing. It’s possible that you’ll be able to specify the voicing for each character.
