Today Arc System Works made an announcement about the upcoming fighting game BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle that might mitigate the concerns expressed by many when the developers announced the rather extensive DLC plan for the game.

According to the new plan, announced today on Twitter, both the previously-announced Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long from RWBY will be provided to those who will purchase the game at no additional cost.

This means that the quartet of girls from Rooster Teeth’s series will be included with your purchase of the game without needing to spend any more money. At the moment, we know that Blake Belladonna will come on day one, but we have no specific information on when Yang Xiao Long will be launched.

The rest of the initial cast of the game will include Ragna the Bloodedge, Jin Kisaragi, Noel Vermillion, Rachel Alucard, TR-0009 Tager, ν-13, Hazama, Makoto Nanaya, Azrael, and Es from BlazBlue: CentralFiction, Yu Narukami, Yosuke Hanamura, Chie Satonaka and Yukiko Amagi from Persona 4, Linne, Hyde, Gordeau and Waldstein from Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[st], and Ruby and Weiss Schnee from RWBY.

If you want to see more about the game, you can enjoy a recent trailer the first character reveal trailer, the second, the third, the fourth, the fifth, and the original tease.

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle will release in Japan on May 31st, with a North American release planned for June 5th, for PS4, Switch, and PC.
