BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle

It didn’t take dataminers to get to work on BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle’s latest update. Version 1.5 added new characters and featured balance adjustments, but some additional content was included behind-the-scenes.

After examining the game’s files, audio announcer lines have apparently been spotted for 75 characters who aren’t on the roster on present. Characters from BlazBlue, Persona 4 Arena, Under Night In-Birth, RWBY, and Arcana Heart were recorded along with two series that not represented in the game.

Arc System Works has officially announced that the Version 1.5 update — which also adds the next wave of DLC characters — will launch on May 21st.

As noted previously, the update will introduce balance changes that will make the game identical to the arcade version. Characters included are Naoto Kurogane, Teddie, Seth, and Heart Aino. They will be available for free to those that have previously purchased all character packs.
