Following the conclusion of the BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle tournament at Evo 2018, Producer Toshimichi Mori stepped on stage to officially announce that the remaining nine DLC characters: BlazBlue’s Izayoi, Nine The Phantom, and Mai Natsume; Persona 4 Arena’s Mitsuru Kirijo, Akihiko Sanada, and Labrys; and Under Night In-Birth’s Yuzuriha Sougetsu, Merkava, and Mika Returna would all be arriving to the game this week. And with a new wave of characters comes more special interactions, and they’ve been compiled here for your viewing pleasure.

There’s also a compilation of all nine of their Astral Heats, each retained from their respective games.

Finally, Arc System Works America has officially updated the English dub version of the character reveal trailer played at Evo, which was the “World Premiere” announcement the company teased for the Bar Fights event last weekend. This marks the first Character Introduction trailer to receive an English dub.

Cross Character Pack 4 (which contains Izayoi, Mitsuru Kirijo, and Merkava), Cross Character Pack 5 (which holds Mai Natsume, Akihiko Sanada, and Yzuriha), and Cross Character Pack 6 (which adds Nine The Phantom, Labrys, and Mika Returna) can all be purchased individually for $4.99 each, and are also included in the All-In-One Pack, which also gets you the previously-released Platinum The Trinity, Orie, Kanji Tatsumi, Aegis, Carmine, Jubei, Naoto Shirogane, Vatista, and Hakumen, for $19.99. Team RWBY’s Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long are also permanently available for free.
