I remember there was mention of trying out tag battles in Blazblue at one point.
Didn't think it would turn into this.

If they've got someone doing work to put Ruby Rose in this game, Sol Badguy is gonna be in this game

Also wonder why they didn't use Japanese Ruby, it's not like they're gonna dub the other characters

Wonder how many characters from each series they'll be bringing over.
Since it looks like the majority of the characters will use their sprites from their sources games, I guess that'll help to free up development time.

Since the game has "Blazblue" as its title, can we expect that majority of the mechanics will come from Blazblue?

Confirmed characters so far are:
Ragna
Jin
Yu
Hyde
Ruby

Post by: Kirishima on July 16, 2017, 10:30:12 PM
I also expect Persona 4 Ultimax characters take up more characters and stages for the crossover side.

If anything, Aigis is also a guaranteed add-on.

Include Grif or we riot.

So I follow BlazBlue on the fringe, zero interest in any of the others.  But supposing Guilty Gear is included, the last one was 2.5D, the fighters were 3D models, correct?

Would be pretty neat to get their new looks, whoever is added (Though come on, it's going to be Sol Badguy) redrawn in this high-res 2D spritework.

Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: Kirishima on July 16, 2017, 11:15:10 PM
Btw the title is Blazblue Cross Tag Battle.

I am quite interested how Yu is going to balanced since I see he retains his Ultimax playstyle involving Izanagi.

I normally do not do wishlists, but I really can't help it.

For the Blazblue side, I foresee Noel (why not), Hazama, Tager, Platinum, Bang, Rachel, Taokaka, and Kokonoe.  Maybe a time-infected Hakumen as a sub-boss battle.  I can't picture anyone else tbh without taking in the story involvement of their source, but that's just me.  If there is a story, I expect Sector Seven to fix everyone's problems.

Crossover predictions are tricky.  Either this is literally "Blazblue vs The World" or "Blazblue and Persona vs The World of what Arcsys can afford".  Regardless of which, Persona is going to take up more.  Aigis is locked in.  I predict Chie, Labrys, Rise, TEDDIE (IT MAKES SENSE),  Kanji or Yosuke for hilarious interactions vs the Blazblue cast, SHO Minazuki to rep the anti-hero and because of his non-Persona summon gameplay and even have a fateful battle-esque scene with Ruby Rose.

I can see Orie to match up with the Persona cast as well as Linne for Under Night rep, maybe Waldstein or Vatista.  Haven't played too much of the source to get the lore for the cast to see who has more chances of getting it.  Eltnum might be a lock because Noel. 

For RWBY, pretty much the obvious if it is only 4 series, although it would be great to see Roman Torchwick rep the villain side (even better if their is some sort of story to go along).  Maybe Ren will be added as a tribute to the late Monty and be this game's Chipp/Bang.

If there is more possibilities for additional series, Skullgirls rep is also a lock, namely Filia.  I can see Arcsys adding Akatsuki from Akatsuki Blitzkampf to save up time; just refix his moveset from Under-Night.  Blazblue had a guest artist from Arcana Heart to do a fanart of Mu-12 in their gallery so Heart Aino is a possibility and my dream of a Ruby Rose and Heart team-up can finally come true.  Finally, Golden Fantasia likely possible with Battler.


I am so excited for this game.

Post by: Macaulyn97 on July 16, 2017, 11:20:45 PM
I'm not much familiar with Arc-System and all it has done or not, but, what is the possibility of the inclusion of a Melty Blood character? Those seem like they could translate well to a game like this.
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: Kirishima on July 16, 2017, 11:22:18 PM
If Noel is in (and she will be), Eltnum is a guarantee.  Can't picture anyone else, but we will see.
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: Speedpreacher on July 16, 2017, 11:27:15 PM
Eltnum is the only one that would require no work so she is the only one that is likely
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: vgma2 on July 16, 2017, 11:50:50 PM
I'll wait on further news before hyping up the potential for any additional characters outside of the 4 franchises to get in.  (Except maybe Eltnum and Akatsuki)

I'm guessing that the major main characters will get in for sure.  So Noel, Rachael, and Linne are probably in.
Hazama, Yosuke, and Vatista are the ones I'm hoping for.
Platinum, Kanji, and Eltnum would be pretty cool also.  Maybe Es too since they're basing the Blazblue cast off Central Fiction.

Replace Akatsuki with Aigis.

Kanji would fit well as the oddball of the roster.
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: Darkflare on July 17, 2017, 09:19:24 AM
Are we theorycrafting the roster? Allow me to join.
First, the "safe" choices

BB = Noel
P4A = Aigis, Labrys
Uniel = Linne, Orie

As for my other guesses

BB = Rachel, Taokaka, Bang, Hakumen, Nu, Azrael, Terumi
For the most part, I feel the first set of characters ended up being more memorable than the later cast except for a few. I don't consider Rachel a "safe" choice as while she's the closest to a 4th protagonist, she doesn't have the same star power as the sibling trio. That said, while I do think any of these have a good chance, I would put more weight toward Rachel, Terumi and then Nu.

P4A = P4 Investigation team, Mitsuru, Akihiko, Adachi, Elizabeth
The rest of Yu's crew all have good chances to join in, although I don't think they might actually add all of them, at most the first four members(Up to Yukiko). Since I listed Aigis as a safe choice, she could easily be accompanied by another P3 character which I lean toward Mitsuru or Akihiko(And of these two, I would bet on Mitsuru).. Adachi could work out as the oddball badguy choice and I do feel Liz has the popularity to crash this "competition".

Uniel = Waldstein, Vatista, Gordeu, Yuzuriha, Hilda
Ok, let me first point out that with the inclusion of BB and P4A, I think it's safe to say that we're going to have airdasher mechanics similar to those games. While Uniel had air dashes as well, they were "weaker" and overall not a very good mobility option due to the crazy range and anti-air options most of the cast had. Traditional Arcsys airdashes are faster and I believe this change will affect Uniel characters the most as the characters that used their range the most might not have it as easy when everyone can suddenly close the distance much easier.
SO, let's get to my choices. While I don't consider Waldstein with the same chances as Linne and Orie, I do believe he has the best chance of the ones I mention here plus of the big guy grapplers(Tager and Kanji being the other ones) I think he would fit the best. Vatista is one I consider with a good chance due to her gameplay as she's one of the few charge characters among all these series(also Japan and their loli fetish). Gordeu is another I see appearing and he would fit in nicely as a complement to Ruby. I pick Yuzuriha because waifu reasons and Hilda as the obligatory villain pick. Since Eltnum and Akatsuki are already guest characters in Uniel, I don't see any chance of them appearing at all.

RWBY = The rest of Team RWBY
"Now hold the fuck up", you might be saying. "Why didn't you just list them as safe guesses as well?". Because I think it's a little early to say that. Yes, Ruby is in the game, but I don't think one can say for certain how much representation the series will have(Compared to P4A and Uniel). Will Ruby be the only guest or will her friends come over as well? If Mori will add more series representative, you can bet the first choices would be among Ruby's own team.

GG = Sol, Ky
But wait, there wasn't a mention of GG series appearing. Right, this was just a teaser after all. They haven't shown us the full roster. There's no mention of GG not appearing though. Plus, everyone wanted the BB x GG cross over, you wanted that cross over, Arcsys damn well knows everyone wants that cross over. It stands to reason that we could see some GG representation coming up. Now X2's spriters are not in Hd like the other sprites and Xrd uses models, so they would have to make new sprites for them. Well, they're already doing Ruby's sprites and most of the work for Xrd Sol and Ky is already done so....

Battle Fantasia =
Pfft, good one.
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: Niitris on July 17, 2017, 09:35:27 AM
They're probably gonna run with simplistic characters (so nothing like Carl, yay) so that the game isn't too complex for it's own good.

Makoto is easily the most popular waifu outside of Noel, I'd be surprised if she wasn't in.

Sure, the game will be more broken then Hokuto no Ken, but who cares.

Yo, just get the rights and throw Hokuto No Ken into this. Also Arcsys now owns River City and Double Dragon, so they could make some new sprites and *BAM*. I get Guilty Gear and Dragonball aren't going to be in here (one for graphics, two for rights in the latter's case), but maybe they could update some of GG's  sprites for the game. I just want EVERYONE in this mess.

Assuming that ArcSys is going for a universal sprite style, we can rest assured that Guilty Gear and HnK characters will not make an appearance. Which is good. It would be crazy to assume that they'd remake those character sprites for an "Asset dump" game, regardless of if they're making the RWBY characters specifically for this game.

That makes no sense whatsoever. If this game was to be just a random crossover of characters they already have, they wouldn't make any new character, just put in the ones they already have from the first three games. And I assure you that, if they will make an universal sprite style, they're more likely to add Guilty Gear characters than adding RWBY, because Guilty Gear is more popular, not to mention that they can do something about the Ragna VS Sol fan rivalry.

"Just put them in"? The sprite styles of GGX and BB/P/Fate are totally different, not to even mention the ratio of the sprites.

And I assure you that, if they will make an universal sprite style, they're more likely to add Guilty Gear characters than adding RWBY, because Guilty Gear is more popular, not to mention that they can do something about the Ragna VS Sol fan rivalry.
Just because something is more popular means nothing when the company has moved on past sprites to 3D models. It makes zero sense to take a step backwards just for the sake of an asset dump game.

Take a step backwards? Spriting for more known characters which would make better inclusion is a step backwards in comparison to adding RWBY characters?

Lord M, putting Guilty Gear characters wouldn't work in this game at all

(http://www.fightersgeneration.com/np2/char2/gif/sol/sol-reload-stance.gif)(http://www.fightersgeneration.com/np5/blaz-cs/sprites/ragna-stance.gif)

As Hoshi said, the style and the aspect ratio are just so different it's highly improbable they would put a GG character in. Even if they did, they would have to make up to the minimum amount of representatives per their respective games (and we don't know what that number is yet).

Take a step backwards? Spriting for more known characters which would make better inclusion is a step backwards in comparison to adding RWBY characters?

Also can you please at least think twice before doing this "insert fighting game company here should have included insert characters here because I said so and I know everything there is to know about how fighting games work!" schtick of yours, you do this in pretty much any fighting game thread. Whenever the topic is about the roster and there is a character or some you don't like you make a big fuzz about it and the arguments you present really don't have that much credibility in the end.

If you don't like the ideal of RWBY of been in this game Lord M so be it and GG was not even showing in the trailer at all they know what they chose as far as fighting games come as much I love GG why would they go though all the trouble of making GG Sprites let alone the new version of all the characters in 2D that would take a long time to draw them out in so that give you one reason why GG was not added at all your attitude show you have no respect for characters who just now making their first fighting game its cool to see a character who never been in a fighting game before.

If there is an SNK rep, I think it will be Nakoruru.

I know we won't get info yet about BBCTB until TGS 2017 or prior to TGS. I made this lazy sprite edit out of boredom while guessing who will be the final boss of BBCTB.
(http://i.imgur.com/s7U4fNu.png)
Merged Izanami (tentative name)
I dunno how she merged or what are her true goals yet (I admit, I haven't explored the lore of Under Night In-birth and RWBY, yet). Probably, she manipulated Hazama/Relius (again!), Adachi (again! but by another Izanami instead), Amnesia (UNI villains led by Hilda) and Cinder's group. And the game's story is nothing more but a four-sided chess board to her (since BBTCB is most likely an alternate BB universe).
Most likely we'll have Hazama, Hilda, Adachi and Cinder as mid-bosses. You fight two of them before the Final Boss.
Also, I might see the boss battle as a 2-phase battle (fight Merged Izanami normally, then, a Giant battle similar to BBCP Takemikazuchi and
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
(though I highly doubt a Giant boss battle in BBCTB is feasible).

(NOTE: I assume Arc Sys will have a different final boss to bring in the table for BBCTB.)

Also, I base Noel's costume in this game whether or not BBCP and BBCF characters won't be in the game.
- if Noel wears her original costume, BBCP and beyond characters (probably save for Izanami for story purposes), won't be in this game.
- if Noel wears her BBCP costume, BBCP characters, at least, will probably be in this game.

Also, I observed that "this universe's" Ragna is "grinning" in his official art.

About my sprite edit, you can freely use my sprite edit if you want.

- Console Exclusive
- A completely new gameplay
- Game is inteded to be "Pad friendly"
- Story Mode will explain why everything happened.
- No Guilty Gear characters despite the heavy demand, the reason is he wants to wait for GG to finish its story first.
EDIT:
- UNI's sprites will be reworked
- Roster is partially complete, but they want fans to tell them which characters from the franchises they want.
- Target market will be outside Japan.

Still trying to understand what this means.  Are the source games not considered pad friendly?
Should we be expecting controls to work like stylish mode?

- UNI's sprites will be reworked
P4A sprites too probably since they didn't say that they were only reworking UNI's sprites specifically.

Another important note:

Currently no more additional franchises planned other than the current 4, but they want to expend in the future if possible.

I personally hope there will be few original characters that leads the calvary towards the big bad.

Under Night's story isn't over yet the characters are in just fine and Ruby's appearence hints that the crossover takes place between Volume 2 and Volume 3.

They can have Sol's (or some GG character's) inclusion take place between Overture and Xrd and it shouldn't affect the whole story.  Alternatively, pull out the old memory wipe cliché.

He wants everyone to be able to fully experience the fun of the game, even without purchasing expensive arcade sticks and since the game has a brand new system, they hope to see all players use this opportunity where everyone starts from the same spot.

Mori wants the game to be enjoyed by non-fighters, and even fighters who cannot afford fight sticks, as well at the same time to level the playing field and start from scratch.

Under Night's story isn't over yet it's characters are in just fine and Ruby's appearence hints that the crossover takes place between Volume 2 and Volume 3.

They can have Sol's (or some GG character's) inclusion take place between Overture and Xrd and it shouldn't affect the whole story.

It may be sketchy but like Mori said before, Daisuke wants "no crossovers until the story ends". Now that Ragna's (at least) story is over, Mori can include them in crossovers from "that story" of Blazblue. Sounds weird, but it may have something to do out of respect for Daisuke.

It may be sketchy but like Mori said before, Daisuke wants "no crossovers until the story ends".
Yet, Dizzy and Noel were in the Queen's Gate universe at one point and their stories were still ongoing.

Still, it's Mori's decision.

I guess it has something to do with what materials they wish to use in the story , for GG case it may be because they have something to show at the end of the story and wish to have it be in the tag battle   , but choose to finish the story of GG first so it won't be a spoiler

I remember reading somewhere that Dasuke didn't want a Blazblue X Guilty Gear crossover either until GG's story was finished. Mori is pretty much respecting Daisuke's request. Personally, I'm fine with GG not being in the game. The 4 series that we already have are more than enough.,

I'm really having trouble imagining the differences pad play could make. Like the only issues I ever have are pressing 2 buttons at the same time that are in weird locations. If I can use my thumb to press 2 buttons at once it's no issue. For 3P 3K games generally give macros so I'm good there too

The lack of RWBY characters in that trailer more than likely has to do with the fact that the cast is currently busy recording their lines for Vol. 5, and that the RWBY characters have to be created from scratch. Hopefully next trailer we get a reveal with at least TWO RWBY characters.

From the gameplay vid, it seems to be the case.  Holding forward only gives you dash speed.

Ruby looks awesome with those mixup dash assists.  I'm surprised they went with her theme from the show instead of a cover.

Overdrive mechanic is back for Blazblue characters.  Makes me wonder if Awakening returns in someway for Persona cast.

http://shoryuken.com/2017/10/05/first-player-impressions-on-blazblue-cross-tag-battle-at-new-york-comic-con/

New character select screen shows more RWBY slots up to 7.  Same goes to P4A and UnderNight.  Interestingly there is another slot called "ETC" that may indicate on other characters outside of the main 4 (Skullgirls' Filia anyone?).  It is confirmed that there will be more Blazblue reps than the other 3 series to fit with the nature of the game.

SKD on gameplay said:
There are five buttons: A, B, C, Assist, Tag
C is always an overhead, or 2C is a sweep
Special moves can be done with quarter circle motions (214/236). Supers are done by pressing two buttons at once. Performing Special moves with C costs meter as well.
It’s possible to keep an assisting character on the screen longer and to direct them to do attacks.
Throws are done with BC and they act similarly to throws in BlazBlue
Dragon Punches are done with AD (or A and Assist)
Resonance Blaze is sort of like X-Factor and Overdrive. It’s a comeback mechanic that’s available once the partner is knocked out. Resonance Blaze refills the meter quickly, makes supers stronger, and regenerates health.
There are auto-combos by pressing the A/B buttons repetitevely.
You can’t be thrown during blockstun, and also, when you press throw, the character will dash forward a bit to grab.
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: vgma2 on October 06, 2017, 07:38:02 AM
Talk has been going around that the character select screen is a placeholder.
I dunno if that means we'll be getting more than 7 characters per series (besides Blazblue), but I think it's safe to say the four main series will have at least 7 each.
The "Etc." section is definitely interesting.  Maybe we could get some Guilty Gear (and Arcana Heart plz) characters after all.

Somewhat related, they showed off the control scheme for this game.

What's interesting is that they have double tap forward to dash as one of the commands listed.
So we'll have running and dashing on the same characters?

Demo vid of the recent build including Hazama and Rachel but no Weiss.



*RWBY cast will have dual audio (JPN and ENG).  No word if the rest of the roster will follow suit (especially for the UNI cast)
*Rachel can summon MULTIPLE GEORGES at the cost of meter.
*Dual combo is there (have two of your characters in the same screen) and it's a guaranteed death setup depending on the characters.  Good luck with that.
*Blazblue cast retain their drives despite not having inputs.  Hazama can use Ouroburos repeatedly and has a move from his Unlimited form.
*Hyde's tag intro is wonky at this time.  Ruby's new intro references Red Trailer.
*Blazblue themes come from Calamity Trigger/Continuum Shift instead of their remixes.
*Combos still rank up extreme damages.

no dude this is different. I fully support dlc for fighting games but this, is pure bullshit.

20 characters for launch in itself isn't bad and dlc itself isn't bad. its the fact that theyre literally charging for another half of the roster that sounds like it's supposed to be for the base game like fucking Blake, who is a MAIN CHARACTER of RWBY. The roster we have right now is the launch roster. Yes, just that. It's EA levels of scummy considering most of the game is Re-Used assets in the first place with more of the DLC being even more reused assets.

Like I said I am usually a supporter for DLC, but this? THIS? no. this is bad. Nobody can defend this type of thing.

20 characters before the game even launches?! Not one, two, or 6, fucking 20. Fuck that.

I'm all for paid DLC, in fact, I knew DLC was going to occur when the select screen had "ETC" in it, leaving room for possibilities.

But leaving a core RWBY character (2 of them) as DLC is just insane when part of your target audience expects the full 4 girls in the base roster.

A RWBY DLC character will make sense if it's someone that's a fan favorite like Qrow, someone not involved in the game's story (if any) like Cinder, or even if it's Volume 4 Ruby Rose as an EX character.  The latter wouldn't take much work compared to a freshly made character and would still be a better DLC choice than BLAKE.

Looking at the DLC choices, I hope there's one completely newly sprited character bundled with other previously made sprites.  Torakaka with Taokaka and Kokonoe, P3 Makoto Yuki with other P3 members, Tsukuyomi with Byakuya and another member, maybe an ETC character to go along, make them play the hinting game.  And make them seperately for the cost of an avatar except the newcomer.


I don't expect ArcSys to do any of them.

There's a theory going on that the 18 of the 20 DLC characters are indeed reused characters.  The only 2 newcomers really are Blake and Yang.

10 BB/4 P4A/4 UNIEL/2 RWBY doubled into 20 BB/8 P4A/8 UNIEL/4 RWBY fit for balance.

Post by: Slivern on January 17, 2018, 09:01:56 AM
I don't know what's going on within the development studio, but there are a few things wrong with this. First, in a few days, Dragon Ball FighterZ (another game developed by Arc) will be released within a few days. Cross Tag doesn't come until mid year. In my opinion, the game should be delayed to next year. Not only that, I think the costs to develop DBFZ impacted Cross Tag in a few ways as well. First, you've got 19 playable characters at launch for Cross Tag and around 20 for Dragon Ball FighterZ. If Arc put more focus into one fighting game, I can guarantee that the roster for Cross Tag would be much bigger and there would not be as much DLC characters. But instead, Cross Tag Battle's roster got cut in half no thanks to development simultaneously being put into DBFZ.

I made a super long comment on YongYea's channel speculating what's going on with Arc, but I'll try to keep it short. I'd like Arc to delay Cross Tag by at least 6 months or a year (DBFZ gets released this month while Cross Tag is released next year in January for example), take the money earned from DBFZ, and that money will be put into fine-tuning Cross Tag's roster as well as including characters from Persona 4 Arena, Under Night and RWBY. With the 1 year release window between DBFZ and Cross Tag, people can properly transition into Cross Tag. Cross Tag and DBFZ both appeal to audiences outside Japan in a way that makes the two highly anticipated, and it would make more sense for Arc to offset development costs toward Cross Tag this way.

Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: Darkflare on January 17, 2018, 01:59:15 PM
- DBFZ and Cross tag are being developed by two different developer teams so neither game is takibg developing time from the other.
- The half year gap between the release of both games is fine. There's plenty of time to enjoy DBFZ and get Cross Tag later.
- Game companies have deadlines to meet and delays hurt them in the long run. Plus, a delay in this case wouldn't even make much of a difference anyway. The only reason they can offer 20 characters as DLC to begin with is because the game is an asset dump. Blake and Yang are the only characters that need to be made from scratch.

To gauge interest in fan favorites that didn't make the cut.  I'm gonna assume there's a Story mode reason for this (like MvC Infinite)  so not everyone has a chance of entering.  There are those that want Adachi, Wagner, Mai, Relius, etc so it makes sense to have their already made sprites as DLC.


Except for some bizarre reason, not just BY, but Hakumen, Kanji, Yuzuriha, Litchi, Taokaka, Teddie, Naoto Shirogane, and Orie.  These characters who should've been from the get-go, who were part of their own wave 1 roster in their own series, are locked as DLC.  They must think because they have a vocal following that it would gauge up sales interest like Jubei.

EDIT: They've noticed the outcry.  Sounds like they'll address the DLC situation. (https://twitter.com/arcsystemworksu/status/956655424123490304)

nah one of the huge draws is that rwby characters are part of the game at all, if there wasn't rwby characters at the start people wouldn't be as interested until much later. the game would be roasted even more if it was like that AND the 20 char dlc plan was still in place

yeah but still they could still pull some rwby fans to buy the game if all four of them came in as a dlc pack complete with updated story and stages. that way people won't complain, it would look like a legit work that they added just for the game.

Rwby being popular in Japan is a strech. It does have a following there but it's mainly a western draw.

There's no way that announcing DLC of any kind before launch would go over well. And certainly not to the western base who would see this as little more than an assets dump game without the new chars.

Post by: vgma2 on January 31, 2018, 01:28:45 AM
So BBXTag has been played at Taipei Game Show; you might've seen some gameplay floating around recently.

Someone posted their 40min gameplay experience, analysis and opinions:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Blazblue/comments/7u34bj/so_this_is_the_40_minute_tag_battle_video/ (https://www.reddit.com/r/Blazblue/comments/7u34bj/so_this_is_the_40_minute_tag_battle_video/)

A few notable things from the analysis/opinions:
Quote
  • Instead of losing Persona cards, P4U characters will get damage from their persona being hit. Not sure whether it will cause to death or not. If both of them are hit, you will deal twice the damage (iirc on first play movie).
  • The game is too fast-paced, even faster that BBCP(imo the fastest BB). The time for thinking the next move after knockdown is nearly none(or just I am bad). Increase hitstop might help imo.
  • Also it is frequently said that this game is newbie-friendly (or too easy) due to the control layout. IT IS NOT. You actually need to do TONS of blocking and 4~5 combos can kill. It is like playing UNIEL but with partners and extra movements.
  • I am wondering why they have auto tech while you fall to the ground (and that weird roll tech also, probably because UNI characters doesn’t have tech rolls). This makes both oki and wakeup stradegy a lot harder. Baiting/Reading is now REALLY important.
  • GETB IS GODDAMN AIR PERFORMABLE.
God damn it Tager

Except I remember that Blake was supposed to be paid DLC at first...and so was Yang. I know I didn't miss that so it's clearly damage control.

This is on top of the fact if the Blue Team is serious about making it 40$, atleast they are more honest about it.

PLEASE! Let that shit be true!!!

I found it completely stupid on them removing the dub from Central Fiction and Revelator series because of nonsensical reasons.
And people have the right to continually slam Arc Sys about it because it really does leave a massive black mark especially in the case of Blazblue and how would affect future work like the still awaiting Persona 5 Arena.

Honestly, as much as I hope for it to be true, I'm bracing myself for no dubs to happen.

US pricing details said:
Retail price for physical and digital: $49.99
Individual DLC packs (there are six): $4.99 ($30 for all 6)
Complete DLC bundle: $19.99
Deluxe Digital Edition (the game with all the DLC): $69.99
The first DLC pack, which includes Platinum, Orie, and Kanji, is free for everyone at launch. (Leaving with $25 of content left)
Per earlier confirmation, Blake Belladona and Yang Xiao Long will be free to download.

Also, UNIEL cast will get ENG dubbing for the first time, as well as Central Fiction cast like Es.  P4A and Blazblue, IMO, will probably get reused audio from past iterations which I'm fine with.
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle

Crazy enough, Arc-Sys literally saved their own asses with even better quickness than Capcom ever could...

It's honestly maddening that Capcom, the company that people love to let it's mediocrity slide for the longest basically act as if they should while calling it a pity that Infinite suffered the way it did, but the very instant that people see and blow the fuck out of Cross Tag Battle, they immediately went damage control and fixed all the problems they could immediately.

I really got to give Arc-Sys mad props on this.

people are still iffy on the dlc thing actually. the damage control is nice but people are still kinda miffed about the dlc even being a thing when everything should have been in launch especially considering most of it is re-used assets ranging from the stages to the sprites.

i know i am, but the free dlc thing and pricing does soften it a bit more.

Because despite my discourse, I'm still miffed over SFV and Infinite's handlings because I really want to play those games, but I'm tired of Capcom's lazy attitude since SFxTK.

And I know people are still miffed on it and I don't blame them simply because Arc-Sys should have explained this immediately out of the gate and I have mentioned that before myself on quite a few occasions.

I'm more dissapointed that this game is being rushed for the sake of EVO with Mori groveling for the audience to preorder the game in the EVO vid.

It might have something to do with the English dub or the pricing, I think. I agree with you in that it's not so much 'saving' themselves but rather, 'correcting' what could of been a horrible disaster. Granted, Arc System Works games are very well known for having tons of DLC content, usually in the form of content that has nothing to do with the game itself (voices, lobby avatars, colors, etc.) with the occasional character thrown in.

Here, it's 20 characters as DLC... well, make that 15. The first quarter of the DLC roster is going to be free, which is awesome. There's going to be a ton of extra content to go with this game as well, so this move is more or less 'correcting' the mistake they made when they said that half the roster is locked as DLC.

Primarily because of
1. They most likely need to buy the rights to the Persona 4 characters and UNIEL characters as well since it's not their properties

2. Due to people wanting the English dub back for Blazblue and this could mean they will add dubs again for those games as well as Guilty Gear.

And let's be frank, with games coming out at 60$ AND a 30$+ Season Pass on release, this is at least good enough for me but I like how you miss I slightly rescanned my opinion and clarified myself a lot better.

I wouldn't mind this either.  I'm way too used to the voice clips from older games.  But since Mori wants to do a story for this game, and knowing thier story modes tend to be full voiced VNs, I'd imagine that they'd take the opportunity to record new battle voices while they're recording story voices.

"Episode Mode" is the story mode and follows respective paths (4 sides in the same story).  There also seems to be a chance of DLC chars being featured (same way as Urien/Juri being demos in General Story) with Blake and Hyde interacting.

Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: vgma2 on February 21, 2018, 08:43:37 PM
To be fair, we weren't fully sure how they would handle their story mode until now.  Whether we'd get a single story line like CF, several split stories like CP, or everyone having their own like CS&CT.

I also sorta assumed it would be like the Blazblue's VN story where everyone had their own VN portraits.  But the screenshots show them using their regular art instead.  I guess new portraits for the non-blazblue characters would be too good to be true.

Since they're going this route, I just realized the chances of seeing other characters as NPCs would be unlikely.

I'm wondering who they got to do the English Voices for the UNIEL cast since this is the first time that series has had English voices.

With the vids I've seen, Hyde sounds like Kyle McCarthy, Linne is most likely Sarah Williams, and I'm positive that Gordeau is Ian Sinclair, while Waldstein is still up in the air for me, but sounds like Jamieson Price doing a much deeper voice that he's used to.

Naoto still has her Instant Kills (Mudoon and Hamoon) and her pistols no longer has a counter limit and her death caps are nowhere to be seen until the IK start.  Her original Awakening super is an EX Move now.

Hakumen is interesting.  There've been talks on why he may not work in this system but here he is.

Character Introduction Trailer
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: vgma2 on April 19, 2018, 10:25:48 PM
Whoo!  Vatista!  I got my UNiB main now!

Some notes for the trailers:
Naoto's traps are not shown in her gameplay.  Neither are Vatista's crystals.
The EX move Hakumen performed in his trailer used 2 meter instead of 1.  Perhaps that might be what they're doing to replace Hakumen's unique meter mechanics.
Hakumen still creates white voids upon hitting a projectile with his sword.  Nu mains beware.  He doesn't seem to gain meter by doing this though.
Hakumen's DP is his dash-counter.  No idea if he'll have his other counters besides maybe his distortion and astral.
Yang looks like your classic rushdown character.  She has a mode where she goes into her semblance to make her moves enhanced, but we currently don't know how she goes into this mode.  (Maybe at a certain HP threshold?)

Is Vatista the only character that we have that's a charge character in their home games?  I wonder if they're keeping her charge commands or replacing them with 236/214 motions?

Also they revealed the open beta dates.  They'll be open at around May 11ish.  Interestingly, the Switch will get a beta too.

Even the collector's edition still requires you to shell out the full DLC pack on most characters that you'll never use.

Quote
Perhaps that might be what they're doing to replace Hakumen's unique meter mechanics.
Even so, that's really heavy on resource management but at the same times forces him to always be anchor with a fast battery partner.  Hope it's the balance found for him.

Pray that Elizabeth never makes it in.

Nu mains beware.
And Aegis mains.  In fact, I think most of her moves are shut down by this.

I was thinking that they might increase Hakumen's meter gain, but you're totally right about this.
If Terumi gets in, Haku+Teru will be one hell of a team comp.

ArcSys recently confirmed that all characters shown at this point will be usable in EVO 2018 including Blake and Yang.  The remaining 9 combantants are prohibited.

Seems that not all the remaining DLC will be out on launch, making the all-in-one pack a season pass.  Interested in their DLC schedule.

Not really feeling it.  Great to see RWBY in animation, but I don't like how lifeless and stiff the cast appear in the first half.  Second half is neat but it is so random that I can't tell what is going on.

Would rather have the better sprite motion videos ASW does with music like this and have something with vocals for the animation intro.


Also, fun fact.  KVO/TSB's Top 4 had 3 Gordeau teams.  Off to a good start.

I've been reading some horror stories about how Switch players are struggling with the controls.

Game's fine but takes a while to adapt to new controls for characters that were your main in the past.  Games sometimes finish way too quickly imo and for some reason pokes for the majority of characters are now command normals.  Like how diverse the cast is in terms of playstyle tho.  Gives lots of ideas for team building.

Color 13 for the cast references western media.  Aside from Gambit Gordeau, Waldstein has Amethyst from Steven Universe, Rachel has Fiona with Nago as Cake the Cat from Adventure Time, and Iron Tager has Shrek.
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: Darkflare on May 13, 2018, 06:23:52 PM
Yea, Switch controls are murder. Can't get command inputs to flow. The pro controller isn't much better.

IIRC,
Color 8 is GG
Color 9 is BB
Color 10 is Persona
Color 11 Uniel
Color 12 is RWBY

Now I want to look over the colors again and take note of the references.

ya'll really had a hard time with the switch version? It could be from all the old neo geo classic fighters I play on switch but this game played like a breeze for me in both hand-held and console mode. I actually appreciate that way the joy cons are laid out since I won't accidentally press up when I ment to press forward.

on a side note: It seems the rwby girls are using 1080p sprites as there is clear difference in quality when switching from hand held to console mode. the others look fine in hand held but the rwby girls look "compressed" by comparison.

Color 13 for the cast references western media.  Aside from Gambit Gordeau, Waldstein has Amethyst from Steven Universe, Rachel has Fiona with Nago as Cake the Cat from Adventure Time, and Iron Tager has Shrek.
Is there a direct quote from somewhere official that's what these are?  Because hearing that caught my attention, but seeing pics of it, Rachel looks nothing at all like Fionna, and Waldstein certainly doesn't look like Amethyst or even the Purple Puma transformation, other than purple skin and white hair.  Which I dunno, feels like a stretch to me, there are other characters around with purple and white color schemes.
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: Kirishima on May 16, 2018, 12:46:40 AM
The reference palettes usually aren't officially stated and left up to speculation by the community.  Been that way since Calamity Trigger (to this day, I'll never know what Hakumen's reference palette was suppose to be).

That said, the community noticed that Hyde is Steven himself, with Linne using Garnet's colors, even though both look a bit far off.  Amethyst Waldstein is a no brainer.  Weiss has Disney's Snow White's color scheme yet doesn't look even close to the figure herself.

Rachel technically is Finn and Jake.  I just assumed it's Fiona because of Cake the Cat, heh.  Surprised no one caught on to Shrek Tager unless it's another character it is basing off on.

Basically, it doesn't matter if the palettes are accurate or not.  They are all shout outs.

  • Theme for a gigantic final boss. (Like Takemikazuchi in CP, or MvC bosses)
Seeing as Persona 4 is invloved in the story, it won't be surprising if the major antagonist is another deity of Japanese mythology.  Or if it's the final boss of Ultimax.

Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: vgma2 on February 19, 2019, 10:53:20 AM
I'm really curious as to how they'll distribute the characters for the second season.  Will AH get 4 characters like RWBY did in S1?  Or will we be lucky and get around 6ish?  Unless they decide to have the AH characters be in a separate Arcana Pack or something, I can't imagine us getting more than last season's 20 dlc.

On a side note, for those who haven't noticed, Heart's sprites are actually new:
(https://i.redd.it/85li8964o1h21.png)
And if they aren't completely new, they are at the very least redrawn and redetailed.

That means characters from smaller res. games like Melty Blood and Guilty Gear are actually possible now.

Revelator had JP voices only as well.

However, Cross Tag had english voices for everyone even those that previously didn't have english voices(Uniel cast, Es, etc.). It would be rather off putting if every character in Season 1 had english voices and suddenly Season 2 characters don't have them.

Because that's literally a huge amount of wasted money spent dubbing the game.

Worst case scenario is that we won't get dubs for the new characters.  But I don't see that being likely considering how they managed to organize (most) of the original actors to come back and replay their character + doing a good job of getting new VAs.  Don't forget that ArcSys has an actual proper NA branch now, whereas during CF and Rev1/2, they didn't.

ArcSys throwing a bunch of red herrings in the files so we can't tell who's getting in. Sneaky.

Well, that list may not necessarily tell us who exactly is getting in, but I think it certainly suggests who's not.  (rip Lambda)

Hearing Akatsuki Blitzkampf names was a surprise.  I heard that their latest game's logo has prominent light blue colors.  Could this be the sixth fate?

Going by what's been said in the past, the Senran Kagura announcer calls have been in there for a long while. Official statement is that they're leftovers from the planning phase, which would explain why there's (almost) one for every character from each Fate, or at least those that are fighting games.

Seems that OHMSBY will be interested about Akatsuki, it's one of his future wips.

I also suspect most of the large number of characters announced by the game's datamine will be assist characters:

There's no such thing as assist characters in this game. You pick two playable characters.

Also in Marvel vs Capcom you pick two playable characters, but then you choose a Special Partner.

In any case, the characters detected by datamining are too many in my opinion.

It isnt unheard for dev to add a ton of contents like that to mess up with dataminers. That happened with MK before. Also, Sion from MB was found during data mining so it's clear that Arcsys just messing around.

The extra voices announcing other characters is their way of future planning.

If BBTAG goes beyond Season 2, they'll obviously add more characters from the already represented series. This way, they already have announcer voices for those characters regardless of who it is.
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle
Post by: R565 on August 05, 2019, 04:23:40 PM
^This.

With this structure of planning, it will allow them to be flexible just in case things fall through.

If anyone's been keeping up with prerelease info, it's heavily speculated that there will be 2 Blazblue characters.
It would also make sense to have an additional Under Night and Persona character.
Now the question is what franchise will the last character be from?  This leaves Senran and Arcana as the only franchises with a single character unless the 5th character comes from them.

Post by: ArtistofLegacy on September 22, 2019, 04:19:24 AM
About that...

The rest of the characters were announced to be Celica, Elizabeth, Adachi, Hilda, and Susanoo.

So now we have not 1, but 2 series at only 1 character each.
Title: Re: blazblue tag battle

Even though the inclusion of Adachi and Hilda is nice but still wow, even more recycled characters. Yay....

Adachi and Susanooh completely surprised me.  Mainly with how Elizabeth appeared first and I didn’t expect a second Persona character.

Oh, I did. But still, this announcement was a bit disapointing for me. Especially after the cool announcement that was Yumi, Neo and the Akatsuki characters.

Doesn't make it any less disappointing, even if we know this game is a asset dump.

Petra has a better chance of getting in than Saki, honestly, and I'd rather prefer her anyway.

That's as much as one can get from a tank, honestly. It's either heavy artillery or lasers.
