The final day of competition at EVO 2019 has begun. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle got the party started with an exciting Top 8. But once the medals were handed out, it was time to get the day's announcements underway.
The next big chapter of BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle was announced on the EVO stage. A new trailer revealed that the game would hit Version 2.0 soon, along with a slew of new characters. They are Yumi, from the Senran Kagura Estival Versus series; Akatsuki and Blitztank (the latter being an actual freakin' tank) from the Akatsuki Blitzkampf series; and Neopolitan from the RWBY series. They are only the first four of nine characters that are set to hit the game in the months ahead.
The next big update is being touted as the "Next" version of BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle. This would imply that in addition to the numerous characters about to be introduced, players can also expect balance changes across the board. There are no details on what else the update will entail just yet, but there's plenty of time to build to that. The 2.0 update is another three months out, which also gives Arc System Works time to unveil the remaining five characters set to join the fight.
Arc System Works isn't done at EVO just yet. The publisher is also promising another announcement later this Sunday. Shacknews will monitor this story as it develops.
BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle will level up to Version 2.0 on November 21.
