    But yeah, I'm not feeling the hype for Marvel now. Tempted to cancel my pre-order (or downgrade from Collector's Edition to Deluxe Edition).

    EDIT: Cancelled MvCI. $200 + tax is too much for a game I'm not feeling that hyped for.

    Ruby Rose, huh? I might be able to use that to convince my brother to try it out when I get the chance to buy it (assuming it gets a steam release)

    Well, this was rather unexpected... not that I'm complaining.

    I'd heard about ArcSys having something RWBY-related in the works, which piqued my interest (even though I haven't seen RWBY in a long while, I remember liking what I saw of it... which, admittedly, was mostly the fights)... but add in Blazblue, Persona 4, and Under Night In-Birth (the first two of which I wish I had had time for years ago when I was in college... but didn't, because college consumed all of my time (although in P4's case, that was more not having a PS3/4)... and that last one is one I wish to play 'cause it looks fun, but only just realized was available on Steam so I haven't played), and make it a tag-team fighter, and I'm very much looking forward to this.
    Pretty much my only problem with this trailer is Ruby's voice, and even that's a fairly minor thing (plus I'm not really sure what specifically was weird about it... it wasn't even bad, just kinda weird for some reason that I can't put my finger on). Well, that and not seeing any Ruby gameplay, but I'm sure we'll get that in the next trailer, whenever that drops.

    Seeing this is making me want to go catch up on RWBY... also making me want to grab Under Night In-Birth EXE: Late, since that's on Steam now and I've wanted to play that since the first one came out.

    As for Blazblue Cross Tag Battle itself, all I can say is...
    Please release on Steam. Please release on Steam. Please release on Steam.
    Please. Release. On. Steam.

    So, um, yeah. I'm looking forward to this now.

    I was just expecting a standalone RWBY game, not a crossover with BlazBlue, Persona 4 Arena and Under Night In-Birth!

    What is with this timeline we live in that games like this could actually exist?

    I'm not exactly a fan of any of the properties involved, but I can still tell that this is pretty nuts.

    Hey folks. Couple posts up here were mod'd as a precaution. We're restorin' 'em for now, but please do mind the derail. Discussion on the merits and/or flaws of a game are fine, but let's try not to derail one thread with opinions on another game..

    I only just heard about this yesterday somehow, and it blew my mind a little. Can't wait to see what other characters get announced (also possibly other Arcsys franchises, since right now it's their biggest fighting franchise and 3 much younger, more niche ones).

    I really hope she gets added to the roster, she's my UNiB main.

    I wonder if any Persona 3 characters will make the roster, given that there were P3 characters in Persona 4 Arena....

    Probably since Arksys already have the character model from P4AU and it shouldn't be too hard to import that into Tag Battle. I'm surprised they haven't added characters from Persona 5 since people want that the most.

    That's probably more "what people who haven't played P4AU want most." Why would they add characters that didn't exist in P4AU? P5 isn't part of this crossover. It's possible that some of the P3 characters that were in P4AU could appear here, but it remains to be seen. Not sure how big the roster is going to be given that there's 4 universes involved, but since it's 2v2, it could be fairly sizable.

    Glad to hear this will be coming to the switch in addition to ps4 and pc. They have Weiss, so now they just need to get Orie and my P4A main, Mitsuru, to get a 'lady with rapier' trifecta.

    Right now my main team will be Ragna/Ruby. Though if they add Neo, Ragna's getting the boot.

    Next character trailer is set to go up around 8 PM Japan time on the ArcSys Twitch stream (in about 12 hours from now).

    EDIT: Decided to make a new post since someone else posted before the video went up.

    They picked some fun characters, but is half the roster gonna be BlazBlue or something? There's still only two RWBY characters. I know they're gonna take the longest to make, but throw the fans a bone here~

    I guess they're taking a page out of Capcom's book here. I can understand if they were to add Jaune, Pyrrha, Nora, and Ren as DLC later, they're not part of the main 4, but Blake and Yang? That seems a bit on the side of, to put this lightly, greedy bullshit.

    Yeah, what a total hype killer. Hopefully they listen to the angry fanbase and fix this. I heard even the Japanese fans are mad about this.

    This feels as bad if not worse than what DBFZ pulled: 8 characters for another $35, base roster is probably 24 characters or so. Even worse if the rumors about who those 8 characters are turns out to be true. Unless these 20 characters are free or $1 each, then I don't see how this is acceptable.

    Even so, half the goddamn roster as DLC? Not even Capcom went that far.

    Only way I can see them salvaging this is making the base game $40 and the All-in-One pack $20. But the thing I'm annoyed at is the fact that Blake and Yang AREN'T IN THE BASE GAME. It'd be like making Jin and Noel or Yosuke and Chie DLC!

    If this is true think I'll pass on release and wait for a sale to buy the game and DLC.
