Th excellent BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is out now in Europe. Available on Steam, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, the game is an excellent fighting title that bridges the gap between those who don’t play many games of this genre, and those who are well-versed in complex mechanics. It does this by allowing a slow introduction into how the game works whilst still providing tons of scalability for players who want to take their play to the next level.
The game itself features an great roster of characters, drawing them from French Bread’s Under Night In-Birth, Atlus’ Persona 4 Arena and Rooster Teeth’s RWBY (for the first time), as well as all the usual BlazBlue staples. You can find our review for the game here (SPOILER: We liked it) and the full press release below.
