BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle to reveal new playable Persona character on September 15

Persona 5 protagonist? Persona 3? Take your guess.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle

Arc System Works will reveal a new playable character from the Persona series for its July-announced crossover fighter BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle during a live stream on September 15 at 20:00 JST. You’ll be able to watch it live on Niconico and Twitch.

The description for the event itself promises “BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle new playable character news,” but a tweet from the official Persona Twitter account confirms that a new Persona character will be revealed.

Currently, only five fighters have been revealed for BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle: Ragna the Bloodedge and Jin Kisaragi from BlazBlue, Yu from Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Hyde from Under Night In-Birth, and Ruby Rose from the 3D animated series RWBY.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is due out in 2018 for unannounced platforms.
