ArcSystemWorks has confirmed the crossover fighting game will see a stateside release next year via their new North American branch.
In a recent announcement, Arc System Works announced their new branch in Torrance, California will publish its first game in the form of BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, a team-based fighter which includes characters from The BlazBlue, Persona, RWBY, and Under Night In-Birth franchises.
Initially revealed last Thursday, the new North American branch has been established with the goal of sales, marketing, promotion, customer support, licensing, localization, and North American partnerships. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is scheduled for release in 2018 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Switch.
Arc System Works is also the developer of the upcoming fighter Dragon Ball FighterZ which is being published by Bandai Namco. Be sure and check out our coverage of the studio and their game on our month-long coverage hub.
