BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle celebrates 450,000 sales on second anniversary

Tag Up, Throw Down

Believe it or not, it has already been two years since the launch of crossover anime fighter BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. Originally launching in May of 2018, Arc System Works’ attractive fist-fest has reached a milestone of over 450,000 shipments and digital sales combined.

As a refresher, BlazBlue: CTB is a tag-fighter which collated a huge roster of recognisable stars from various video game and anime franchises. Featuring a bevy of characters from Persona 4 Arena, RWBY, Arcana Heart, Under Night In-Birth, Akatsuki Blitzkampf and even Senran Kagura, BlazBlue: CTB is one of the best “dream match” fighters on the market. It secured a devoted playerbase with its fast-paced combat, deep fighting system and great-looking, if chaotic, visual style.

To celebrate Arc System Works announced a sale on the BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle base game and a wide variety of its DLC packages, but unfortunately this sale appears to be restricted to the Japanese PlayStation and Nintendo Switch stores.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is available now on PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
