Arc System Works gives us a look at BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle's Team RWBY


Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang, also known as 'RWBY'

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is nearly here, and it will bring Arc System Works into the full Switch fray when it actually hits. As of right now the Switch edition is set for the same June 5 release as the PC and PS4 versions, which is a big deal when it comes to the viability of the system as it pertains to fighting games. 

For now Arc is giving us a closer look at RWBY, the team from Rooster Teeth that's making its way in as DLC. To re-iterate Blake and Yang will be available to download for free, a consolation prize of sorts for the original muddled DLC message that rocked the internet a while back, while Ruby and Weiss will remain part of the base game.

For those of you unaware, RWBY is a western style anime that debuted in 2013 that features hunter heroines battling evil creatures. The reason they're in? Toshimichi Mori, creator of BlazBlue, is a huge fan of the series.
