BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle ’s DLC distribution plans were criticized when they were revealed back in January. At the conclusion of the BlazBlue: Central Fiction tournament, the release date for Cross Tag Battle was revealed along with the inclusion of Blake Belladona and special editions of the game. However, Blake wasn’t going to be part of the base game with her RWBY teammates. In fact, the base game of Cross Tag Battle was to have 20 characters with another 20 coming in as paid DLC. Yes, half of the entire BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle roster was going to be behind paid DLC and the community was rightly annoyed.

Since the announcement, Blake and Yang were changed to be free to download. BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will release in Japan on May 31 with the U.S. version coming June 5 for PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
