With the Japanese release date of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle having arrived, many players are getting their hands on early copies of the game, providing us with a look at certain types of content before the full release for other regions in June — particularly the four Day 1 DLC characters.

As such, we have a compilation of Astral Heats for Team RWBY’s Blake Belladonna, BlazBlue’s Platinum The Trinity, Under Night In-Birth’s Orie, and Persona 4 Arena’s Kanji Tatsumi. Blake’s Astral is clearly an homage to Adam Taurus’s (who happens to be Toshimichi Mori’s favorite RWBY character), attack from the Black Trailer, as Belladonna slashes her foe up with Gambol Shroud before sending them to the ground, where they disintegrate into tiny black pieces against a blood red background. Meanwhile, Platinum, Orie, and Kanji have retained Shining Layered Force, Rest In Piece, and The Man Series: Brofist, from their respective origin games. You can see all four of them in English below.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle arrived on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in Japan today, Thursday, May 31st. A North American release on the same platforms will follow this Tuesday, June 5th. A European release for PS4 and Switch, by PQube Games, is scheduled for Friday, June 22nd.
