Aigis, Carmine, and Jubei are headed to BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle in Cross Character Pack 2

Earlier today, Arc System Works held their monthly March Arc Nama stream where we got to see the BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle‘s seventh character introduction trailer, revealing the DLC characters that will comprise Cross Character Pack 2.

Breaking from their pattern of revealing the Investigation Team members in the order they joined, we instead got “The Heartless Armed Angel,” Aigis. Our first character from Persona 3, this Anti-Shadow Suppression Weapon wields the Persona Pallas Athena, bringing a deadly assortment of firearms, as well as her Orgia Mode, which gives her access to extreme movement options, terrifying instant overheads, and new specials. She also doesn’t appear to have her ammo counter, which should make her a bit easier to play — and make her zoning game even more dangerous.

For Under Night In-Birth we have Carmine Prime, a literal blood knight who possesses the EXS of Lifeblood: Blood Spike, which allows him to freely manipulate his blood in exchange for a portion of his own health, giving him quite the unique and technical playstyle. Finally, we have perhaps the most surprising addition to the cast: the newest member of BlazBlue‘s roster, Jubei. Joining Platinum as the second playable member of the Six Heroes, the “One-eyed Lotus” retains his blistering speed, as well as his upgraded Drive, Shiranui Hagane.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will be released in Japan for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on Thursday, May 31st, with a North American release following on the same platforms Tuesday, June 5th. European release details are still being finalized. These characters can be purchased in Cross Character Pack 2 for $4.99 or as part of the All-In-One Character Pack, which includes all 20 DLC characters for $19.99.
