North American and Asian players have known when to expect the release of Arc System Works' latest fighting game, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, for quite some time now, but players in European territories were left mostly in the dark until now.

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle will release a few weeks after its North American counterparts on June 22nd in Europe while an open beta for the game is currently up for PlayStation 4 owners in the region from today, May 18th, until May 20th when it will change into the four-character offline demo.

A Collector's Edition is available to pre-order now from Rice Digital called The Phantom Field Edition for PS4 and Switch which includes the game, the official art book, official soundtrack, premium poster set of 4 characters in a protective box and an exclusive messenger bag for £79.99.

ArcSys also recently released new highlight trailers showcasing the casts of RWBY and Persona 4 Arena. RWBY's trailer introduces its four main heroines with the narration coming from the series' protagonist Ruby Rose while the Persona trailer shows off how its cast interacts with each other and the other franchises in the game.

Outside of Europe, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle will release on May 31st for Asian territories and June 5th in North America on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam.
