The unannounced characters are nearly unearthed completely.
Though we’ve already seen datamined Lobby Avatars, announcer calls and even some brief footage, we now have even more evidence pointing towards the identities of the remaining nine currently-unannounced DLC characters for BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle.
Content creators Rachel’s Husband and Bonus-Kun have released English audio for upcoming fighters Nine The Phantom, Mai Natsume, and Izayoi from BlazBlue, Persona 4 Arena’s Labrys and Akihiko, and Under Night In-Birth’s Merkava and Yuzuriha Sougetsu.
In the clips, we can hear that Amanda Celine Miller, Stephanie Sheh, Cindy Robinson, Julie Ann Taylor, and Liam O’Brien will be reprising their roles as Nine, Mai, Labrys, Izayoi, and Akihiko respectively.
Merkava seems to be voiced in English by Benjamin Diskin — the voice of Eddie Brock/Venom in The Spectacular Spider-Man, Sai and Arashi Fuma in Naruto, Joseph Joestar in the Battle Tendency arc of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Ash Roller in Accel World, Knuckle Bine in the 2011 Hunter x Hunter, Numbahs One and Two in Codename: Kids Next Door, among countless other roles.
Yuzu’s English voice sounds like Erica Lindbeck, perhaps best known as Futaba Sakura in Persona 5, Celica in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Jericho in The Seven Deadly Sins, Sayaka Igarashi in Kakegurui, Pakunoda in the 2011 Hunter x Hunter, Azee Gurumin in Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, and Hijiri Yashima in the upcoming FLCL: Alternative.
Until direct confirmation, the suspected voice actors are merely speculation, and will be updated with the accurate actor credit when they are announced. You can hear all available voice clips below.
According to the Nintendo eShop, the next set of characters contained in Cross Character Pack 4 is possibly releasing the day after Evo, so we could be seeing the next trio who Can’t Escape from Crossing Fate revealed at the event.
In the meantime, you can check out the new trailer for Cross Character Packs 2 & 3 as well as Yang Xiao Long, who are all now available to download.
