Blazblue Cross Tag Season 2 Release date, Price and New DLC Characters

Most including myself thought the last major update to Blazblue Cross Tag (BBTAG) was going to be the start of season 2 and arcade finally include arcade mode. It wasn’t, we got some new characters and quite a lot of rebalancing though. This time it will be season 2, complete with two new fates (series) joining the battle. If you follow rumours prepare to have all suspicions confirmed, if not, prepare to have your mind a little bit blown because Senran Kagura and Akatsuki Blitzcampf are joining the fray.

There will be a total of 9 new DLC characters in season 2, a lot less than the 24 from Season 1 however of the four currently announced I imagine they can only take assets from one, plus it’s still more than Street Fighter gives per season. The release date is 21st November 2019 so a bit of a wait yet. The all important price is going up compared to season 1 which to me suggests that they’ll be concentrating on making characters from scratch not including more from Blazblue, Under Night or Persona 4 Arena which is a shame as I’m still missing some of my favourite characters from those series. It’ll be 2,700 yen whereas Season 1 at £14 was 2200 yen meaning season 2 is likely to be closer to £20. This’ll no doubt cause backlash but people have to remember making games isn’t cheap.

Let’s check out some screenshots of the announced characters and the trailer.

We have fan favourite Neo from RWBY, if we had to get a villain from RWBY she would definitely be my pick so I’m pretty happy about this one.

There’s Yumi from Senran Kagura.

There’s Akatsuki from Akatsuki Blitzcampf.

The final announcement and most surprising was Blitztank from Akatsuki Blitzcampf.

And finally let’s check out that trailer.
