Update: You can check out the results of our most recent poll about which potential characters you'd most like to see in Cross Tag Battle after the jump. A lot of people want to see more RWBY fighters it seems.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle received probably its biggest update yet earlier this week that brought four new fighters to the roster while also rebalancing the existing characters pretty drastically in some cases, but that's apparently not all that was added to patch Version 1.5.

Data-miners also reportedly discovered 75 new announcer clips for characters who are not currently in the game including two non-Arc System Works series that haven't previously been featured before, but who out of that massive potential roster would you be most interested in playing? Potential spoilers for future DLC ahead.

A large amount of the remaining cast of BlazBlue, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax and Under Night In-Birth characters like Taokaka, Margaret and Nanase are included in these files, but there's many more that either haven't been in a fighting game before or would need to be reworked to fit into Cross Tag Battle.

The announcer lines appear to refer to characters from Senran Kagura and Akatsuki Blitzkampf which currently aren't apart of the five series in the game now that Arcana Heart has been added, so it's seeming likely that one of the two will be the sixth fate that ArcSys referenced at EVO Japan earlier this year.

There were also 10 RWBY fighters in the files beyond the main cast of four already in the game which — like Senran Kagura — would likely take the most amount of work to produce given that they'd need their sprites and move sets built from scratch for the genre.

We've made a poll containing all 75 potential BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle characters below with their series to choose your favorite from, but remember we should all still take this with a big grain of salt considering ArcSys could have recorded these clips as placeholders or as a way to throw off data-miners.
