Four More Characters Are Joining Blazblue: Cross Tag Battle in Spring 2019

Can’t escape from crossing fate!

At this year’s EVO Japan, Arc System works announced their latest update and 4 DLC characters for Blazblue: Cross Tag Battle. I bet many of you thought they were done with the game. Thankfully, these new additions show otherwise.

From Blazblue: Central Fiction, we have the Bloodedge Kindred, Naoto Kurogane. While The Beast in Heat, Teddie and his persona of Kintoki Douji, from Persona 4. will be joining the fray. Everyone’s favorite assassin from From Under Night In-birth, Seth has been added as well. Which is interesting as many had requested his inclusion for some time.


Lastly, a new character from the fifth fate/series that was teased prior. Making her way from the Arcana Heart series, it is the angel who fights for love and justice, Heart Aino.

All characters announced are scheduled to be released in the Spring of 2019 in arcades currently. I assume the console versions will be released shortly after. Also teased at the end is a 6th fate/series to be making an appearance. To what it is, we have no clue to go on but will update as it develops. In case you missed it, check out our review of the game for the Switch.


Blaze Blue: Cross Tag Battle is out for PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.
