In May 2019, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle will be updated with these four guest characters:
•Naoto Kurogane (BLAZBLUE) – An in-fighter that turns his own blood into a sword to fight. He specializes in rush attacks utilizing an “enhancer” that strengthens skills.
•Teddie (PERSONA 4 ARENA) – He throws items and performs comical and diverse attacks. Their effects range from automatically launching a ranged attack to recovering HP.
•Seth (UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH) – A speed character that specializes in attacks where he closes in while keeping a distance. He is capable of multi-directional battles with “Captive Segment,” a projectile that attacks with a timer.
•Heart Aino (ARCANA HEART) – An orthodox and balanced character that specializes in dynamic fist punches. Her “Homing”, in which she fast travels toward the enemy, as well as her long range attack using the blessings of Partinias are powerful!
