Toshimichi Mori

Forbes chatted with BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle producer Toshimichi Mori in a new interview. Mori had quite a bit to say about Switch, noting that the system is bringing back lapsed gamers and is “putting gaming back on the radar of those who didn’t consider it.”

Mori shared the following about Switch:

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.

Much has been made about BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle’s DLC and how much it’ll cost to obtain everything. After Destructoid spoke with the game’s producer, we finally have some clarification.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will be sold at $49.99 with DLC offered outside of that. You’ll also be able to pick up the Deluxe Digital Edition for $69.99 featuring the main game and Cross Tag Character Pack 1-6.

Here’s a full breakdown of pricing:

Arc System Works is on board as a Switch developer. The company has already put out a few titles on the eShop, but we also know that some sort of BlazBlue game is planned.

Redbull recently spoke with BlazBlue series creator Toshimichi Mori and asked for an update about regarding the franchise on Nintendo’s console. He sadly wouldn’t divulge anything, but did say that “fighting games can definitely find a home on the Switch.”

Mori noted:

“As far as announcements go, I unfortunately can’t say much today, but what I will say is that with the introduction of fun competitive games like Arms, I do believe fighting games can definitely find a home on the Switch. Stay tuned!”
