Can’t escape from the release date!

It’s that time at last, folks. Whether you wanted to the Japanese copy of the game (released last week) or have faithfully awaited the English version, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is now playable on your chosen device (PlayStation 4, Steam, or Nintendo Switch). With that, the Arc System Works America YouTube channel posted a special launch trailer that shows off the game and features producer Toshimichi Mori.

Mori appears at the beginning, playing the game in the background, and he addresses the fans about wanting to “show the world how interesting fighting games can be.” He believes the game to have the right combination of depth for enthusiasts and accessibility for newcomers, but above all, he wants it to be a fun experience.

The actual trailer starts two minutes in, and it’s an energetic montage that shows off gameplay and the cast in action with English voices. We see all the characters in action (even the not-yet-release team RWBY member, Yang) and get a brief overview of the modes available in the game.
