Yumi flying the flag for Senran Kagura in BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle

Ice to see you

Arc System Works has released a trailer for Yumi, one of the fresh characters coming to their crossover fighter BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. Yumi’s appearance is sure to turn heads, given that she’s crossing over from notorious cheesecake franchise Senran Kagura.

As you can see in the trailer below, Yumi’s quiet demeanor and graceful gait hides her lightning-quick fan-fighting skills, adept at rolling out strings of hits on the ground, before chasing her opponent to continue the beatdown in mid-air, leaving a trail of icicles in her wake. We also see the ice queen utilise a handy counter-maneuver, as well as use her fans to pull her opponent in close for further punishment.

Yumi arrives in BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle as part of its upcoming character pack, which also includes BlazBlue’s Celica A. Mercury and Susanoo, Persona 4 Arena’s Elizabeth and Tohru Adachi, Under Night In-Birth’s Hilda, RWBY’s Neo Politan, and finally Akatsuki and Blitztank from Akatsuki Blitzkampf. The character pack launches November 21 at a cost of $25 and is part of CTB’s mammoth “Version 2.0” update.


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