This in-depth look sheds light on what’s new with BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle

Now that the beta has begun, many players have been busy practicing BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, which switches up the regular Arc System Works formula considerably.

Fighting game guide rooflemonger is tackling the newest ASW game with a walkthrough of the gameplay mechanics. It’s a fairly relaxed video, divided into a few sections — starting with a general overview of the game’s bars and buttons. At about 5:20, he ventures into the defensive mechanics, including the risky Dragon Punch. rooflemonger then discusses pushblock which operates à la Marvel vs. Capcom. After that, he delves into the tag system, covering how to effectively weave your partner into combos and neutrals. Finally, rooflemonger explains Resonance Blaze, BBTAG’s “X-Factor” mechanic.

All in all, the video is a nice look at what to expect from BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle and its gameplay mechanics. If you prefer a guide that displays inputs and is a little more concise, check out this JP BBTAG system primer instead.
