Arc System Works has revealed the next Persona character to join its massive line-up for BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, releasing on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC, sometime in 2018. The latest character? Fan-favorite, Chie, from Persona 4 Arena.
The line-up is already massive, with crossovers between 4 games. Noel Vermillion joins fellow BlazBlue characters Hazama, Ragna the Bloodedge, Jin Kisaragi, and Rachel Alucard. Chie Satonaka joins Persona 4 Arena fighters Yu Narukami, and Yosuke Hanamura. While Under Night In-Birth gets representation with Hyde, Waldstein, and Lynne.
Arc System Works hosted a livestream this morning, detailing their new upcoming BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle title, featuring characters from BlazBlue, RWBY, and the Persona series.
The livestream announced that Persona 4’s Yosuke Hanamura, BlazBlue’s Jin Kisaragi, and Under Night In-Birth’s Linne will all be joining the game’s roster. You can also hit the jump to check out full character stats for much of the already announced roster.

Arc System Works is hosting a live stream on September 15th, where they’ll be sharing the latest on BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, including revealing a new playable character from the Persona series. We know that Persona 4 protagonist, Yu Narukami, is in the game, so maybe we’ll be getting the protagonist of Persona 5 or even Persona 3?
The live stream will be available for viewing at NicoNico Live and Twitch on September 15th at 8:00pm JST. Atlus shared that we’ll be seeing a new playable Persona character during the live stream, but currently no other hints as to who the character could be have been revealed.
Arc System Works is continuing their fire year with a new BlazBlue title, BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War being released on iOS and Android smartphones. No details for the title have been revealed, but Arc has put up a teaser website advertising the new title.
The mobile BlazBlue titles have been consistently fun, with Arc System Works being one of the few companies able to properly port their titles to mobile in a fun and engaging way.
If there’s one thing I love, it’s crossovers. Seeing multiple worlds intersect is always fascination, and combined with the Geese Howard announcement we just received, this BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle announcement is just as awesome. The game will include Persona 4‘s protagonist, Yu Narukam, from the Persona 4 Arena fighting game in addition to several other characters.
Arc System Works also revealed that the upcoming game will include fighters not just from Persona, but also RWBY and Under Night In-Birth as well. The game will be available sometime in 2018.
