Could we see this cosmetic item appear in BBTAG in the future?

One of the unique aesthetic aspects of the Persona 4 Arena series — beyond being able to mix and match character and Persona colors — was the ability to purchase pairs of glasses to be worn in battle, (or some other form of face wear, such as goggles, masks or visors, depending on your character). This served as another bit of fan service in the RPG series, as the members of the Investigation Team would use them in Persona 4 to help them clearly see through the thick fog of the Midnight Channel. These would not only be visible on the character sprites during a match, but would also be added to the Awakening portraits of each fighter, as well as their artwork during Instant Kills.

Though this feature is currently absent for the Persona cast in BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, evidence for it appears have been found by data miners, indicating that it was possibly planned at one point — or that it could eventually come to the game as future DLC. Twitter user SeGel2009 even notes that there are glasses colors for the new reference palettes, as well as the trio of DLC colors, for all characters. You can see each character’s full color assortment — with the corresponding glasses for reference — below.

Would you like to see glasses become available for the P4A cast in BBTAG? Sound off in the comments.
