Will two busty ninjas of Senran Kagura be making an appearance on Blazblue Cross Tag Battle?
As we approach the release of BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, data miners have been discovering data that appears to confirm the last nine characters of the roster and perhaps two more. This was discovered by Twitter User @OtherEhm who discovered the data of the Switch version during the beta.
Unannounced DLC characters for BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. All characters have a menu portrait, and the blank ones are for characters that ArcSys has yet to talk about. Thanks to @john_michonski and @Supersonicfan7 for help with identifying some characters. pic.twitter.com/l4tmW9EXzW

From BlazeBlue: Izayoi, Mai Natsume, and Nine The Phantom.
From Persona: Akihiko Sanada, Mitsuru Kirijo, and Labrys.
From Under Night: Merkava, Mika, and Yuzuriha.
Along this detail, OtherEhm also discovered the voice files of the announcer confirming these nine characters. (Begins at the 3:57 mark)
What’s even more interesting is that the announcer states two more names, which are Asuka and Yumi.
Which other series share both those names in the same game? Tekken has an Asuka, but no Yumi. The consensus so far believes that it is of the Senran Kagura series. The Senran Kagura games also has the cast as by one name and not in a first and last name format. Arc System Works has not confirmed this at the time of writing, but the data so far seems to be a good hint of what is to come. Do you think this is a good idea? Do you wish to have more Senran Kagura representation on Switch, PS4, or PC?

Blazblue:Cross Tag Battle is scheduled for release on June 5th for PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
