Another year, another update for a tag team-focused fighting game featuring different anime fighters. Arc System Works’ guest-filled fighting game, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, is no different and will be receiving a grand Version 2.0 Special Edition update this 21st November.

So what will fighting game fanatics be getting? Let’s break it down:

-New fighting mechanics. These include:

  • Extra Assault, which allows players to use one bar of the skill gauge for a powerful Clash Attack; it leaves them with an Active Switch power-up once it’s finished.
  • Cross Raid attacks which can be used after landing the final hit of your first auto combo. Tag your pals in after an attack. 
  • Delay Entry. Once your first character is KO’ed, you can control when your partner comes in.
  • Rampage Time: when the in-game timer reaches 80, this will cause skill gauges for both players to increase continuously.

-New characters: this one’s a no-brainer, though you’ll need to spend season pass/DLC money for this bit. You’ll be getting the following:

  • Persona 4 Arena‘s Elizabeth and Tohru Adachi. They’ll be using their Personas like in that one Shin Megami Tensei game.
  • BlazBlue’s Susanoo and Celica A. Mercury. The former has rushdown potential while the latter fights with a puppet.
  • Under Night/UNIST‘s Hilda. Ojou laugh “rich bitch” here has crazy zoning moves.
  • RWBY‘s Neo Politan.
  • Akatsuki Blitzkampf‘s Akatsuki (also in UNIST) and Blitztank. The latter is a tank BTW.
  • Senran Kagura‘s Yumi. Yep, ASW is tapping that well-endowed well.

This major update will be out on 21st November for PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
