Arc System Works was at the Rooster Teeth Expo in London this weekend where they had a number of announcements to make regarding BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle. During their livestream, not only did they reveal new characters, but they also announced which platforms the game is coming to.

First up, three new characters have been revealed. BlazBlue‘s Rachel Alucard and Hazama are joining the cast, alongside RWBY‘s Weiss Schnee. For those not familiar with the latter series, Weiss is one of the main characters, being part of Team RWBY.

In addition to these three, Arc System Works also revealed that platforms that the game is coming to. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle will be coming to not only PlayStation 4, but also to the PC (via Steam), and to Nintendo Switch. The last one is great news for the platform, which has so far, tended to feature mostly rehashes of classic fighting games (aside from Nintendo’s offerings).

Finally, because this matters to some people, some form of dual-audio was seemingly also confirmed — at least for the RWBY characters.

The next set of reveals for BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is set for late October. In the meantime, check Rachel, Hazama, and Weiss out in this new character trailer.
