BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle 2.0 DLC on Its Way

Arc System Works has announced that the BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle “Ver. 2.0 Expansion Pack” (that’s a mouthful) is on its way to most major platforms later in the year. You can take a look at the super stylish announcement video below and keep reading for more details.

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle 2.0 DLC


Did you think BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle didn’t have enough characters to play as? Well, there are a lot more on the way. This DLC will offer nine additional characters for gamers to team up with. Some of the characters won’t be too recognizable to American or European audiences since they come from more obscure franchises. Some of the new characters that are revealed include Yumi from Senran Kagura Estival Versus, Akatsuki and Blitztank (which is a freaking, literal tank), both from Akatsuki Blitzkampf, and Neo Politan from RWBY.

Currently, seven different franchises are represented in the 2v2 tag, 2D fighting game with potentially more to be revealed. There are still five additional characters that haven’t been revealed yet so we have that to look forward to.

The new expansion pack will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 21 for a hefty $24.99. Sorry, Xbox One owners, it doesn’t seem like this game will be coming to the console any time soon. Anyway, check out our Sick Critic review of the original BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle to decide if you want the game or not. Or don’t read it, I’m not going to force you.

Will you be picking up this DLC pack or do you think it’s too expensive to justify the purchase? Nine new characters and a new scenario (I may have forgotten to mention this), along with character interactions, and colors for the characters doesn’t seem too bad a deal. Let us know in the comments!
