The time for Crossing Fate approaches. Although we have been used to steady character reveals from Arc System Works, we have a finalized cast that we’re going to deal with for the next few months. The company confirmed on Twitter that the following 31-member cast will be the official roster for Evolution 2018, and offered a handy graphic.
Of course, BlazBlue‘s cast is sitting at the top, with 13 members. Persona and Under Night characters evened out at seven each. Lastly, we have the completed team RWBY at four, after having just seen the first gameplay preview of Yang Xiao Long. Notably, this isn’t the full cast. There are still three more character packs coming in the form of DLC, which will round out the cast to 40. It sounds like we might not hear about them until Evo 2018 itself.
The game will launch on June 5th in the US, May 29th in Japan, and in Europe at a later date. Pre-ordering the game nets a reward in the form of the first character pack being available for free (Kanji, Orie, Platinum the Trinity). There’s also a BBTAG Collector’s Edition available at a higher price that will include all the DLC characters, though it seems like some of those will arrive later than expected.
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is one of the main stage games for Evolution 2018.
