BBTag’s roster is one of the best gifts Arc System Works has given us, pitting together 4 huge franchises, and a few extra standalone characters that anime fans will love!
Character Selection Screen, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle
The BlazBlue franchise gets the biggest attention obviously – this is a BlazBlue game after all, with 17 characters from the Centralfiction game. Then comes Persona 4 Arena as the main selling point, a great anime fighting game that PC users never had the chance to play before, including all 13 original characters!
Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] (known as Late[st] until the recent name change) is a close third with 12 characters, while RWBY gets only 5 – well, it’s an anime turned hack n’ slash RPG, so that makes sense!
A few more fan service additions include 1 character from Arcana Heart 3 LOVEMAX SIXSTARS!!!!!!, the well-known anime brawler, 1 from Senran Kagura Estival Versus, a famous anime hack n’ slash franchise, and 2 characters from Akatsuki Blitzkampf, an original Japanese 2D fighting game.
I definitely suggest you go for the Special Edition of the game, as it includes all 33 extra DLC characters, as well as a few extra goodies:
