Team RWBY’s final member prepares to burn her foes next Thursday!

The hits just keep on coming for fans of the upcoming BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. Hot off the heels of the announcement of the North American Collector’s Edition and news that the game will be available to play at select U.S. GameStop retailer kiosks, we’ve got a revelation that will make next week’s Arc Nama stream perhaps one of the biggest yet.

In addition to unveiling the three DLC characters contained in Cross Character Pack 3, we’ll also be getting our first look at gameplay for another DLC fighter: the fourth and final member of Team RWBY, Yang Xiao Long!

Though her character artwork was officially unveiled during the Evo lineup announcement in February — where it was confirmed that she will be a permanently-free roster addition, just like her teammate Blake Belladonna — we’ve yet to see Ruby’s older sister in action. With her propensity for up-close brawling and her Rage Semblance inherited from her mother Raven Branwen (that increases her combat potential the harder she’s struck by her enemies) she could prove to make a very interesting transition into the BBTAG roster. You can see the announcement tweet below, with the stream taking place next Thursday, April 19th on twitch.tv/arcsystemworks, starting at 4:00 AM PT (7:00 AM ET).

Though there are some interesting “decoded silhouettes” floating around the community, who would you like to see in the next pack of DLC characters? Share your picks with us in the comments below.
