Update: ArcSys announced the Collector's Edition of BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle containing a special steelbook case, artbook for the game, a 15-song soundtrack, and acrylic standees of Ragna, Ruby, Yu and Hyde on ArcSys' and RoosterTeeth's websites for $99.99 (though pre-order pages are not currently up at time of posting).

BlazBlue Central Fiction did not feature an English dub for the first time in the series' history with Arc System Works deciding to skip that process for the game as well as the last two Guilty Gear iterations, but are returning to their inclusion with the crossover Cross Tag Battle.

The official PlayStation Twitter posted a new trailer for BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle showing off the English dub for the first time in an officially posted video though it has been playable in English at some recent events. A couple of videos also compiles some of the special character intros in the game with the English dub.

The new trailer shows off the main two characters from each of the four properties currently in the game with Ragna, Jinn, Yu Narukami, Yosuke, Hyde, Linne, Ruby and Weiss. Each character that has been shown in English so far seems to have kept their voice actors from previous games/ shows.

Cross Tag Battle will be the first game that Under Night In-Birth characters will be dubbed in English with Hyde and Linne getting some time to shine in the new trailer voiced by Kyle McCarley and Sarah Anne Williams respectively.

ArcSys will be hosting their weekly livestream tonight on their Twitch account at 5:00 pm PST where they are currently that teasing some sort of announcement will occur during the stream.

The game is set to launch in North America on June 5 on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can check out the Collector's Edition unboxing below, and the full trailer plus special intro dialogues can be found after the jump.
