Brand New BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle Gameplay Surfaces

Earlier today, new off-screen footage of BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle surfaced. The gameplay itself seems to come from the the tournament Toushinsai 2017, and gives us a good look at Ruby Rose, Ragna, Jin, Rachel, Yusuke, and some others in action. You can check out the three videos below:

While the videos aren’t exactly the best look at the game we’ll get since it’s all filmed off-screen, we still get a good look at not only how the menus operate, but how certain characters play against each other. With this gameplay footage out in the open, perhaps Arc System Works will release some official gameplay sooner rather than later.
