A new round of characters has been announced for a game I still can’t believe is coming to Nintendo Switch: Blazblue: Cross Tag Battle. These four characters all come from the titular Blazblue series, and luckily includes my favorite two characters from the game.
- Iron Tager – The series’ token grappler. He’s a huge red guy with big throws and magnetizing attacks that can draw in or repel the enemy. Go for that 720° super!
- Makoto Nanaya – The scantily-clad squirrel girl who specializes in rushdown punching attacks. Probably my favorite Blazblue character!
- Nu-13 – A floating robot girl made of swords. Another one of my favorites from the series.
- Es – A newer character to the series, she’s a small girl with a huge sword. She first appeared in a spinoff visual novel series.
The game is set to come out in 2018. I’ll throw a non-stop tantrum until they add Kanji from Persona 4 Arena — because he’s the greatest fighting game character ever.
