Update: Arc System Works has released the English version breakdown for Neo Politan which you can check out after the jump.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle's huge Version 2.0 upgrade is still over a month away, but information about the new fighters and mechanics are steadily coming out thanks to Arc System Works releasing new videos and allowing the game to be showcased at some events.

ArcSys recently posted a new video to their YouTube page showing off just what the fighting game newcomer in Neo Politan from RWBY can do with her umbrella in BBTAG.

Neo Politan is described as a mysterious girl who used quick attacks and a blade hidden in her umbrella to flaunt her prowess and speed in front of foes.

She can also use illusions to throw off her opponents creating multiple doppelgangers of herself allowing Neo to essentially teleport above, below or behind her opponents after striking a pose with Steal Blitz, Stealth Sweep and Strike Stance.

A few of Neo's stealth moves look a bit slow on their own or rely on a counter though having a partner to cover can certainly make those mixups nasty, and the fact that she can pop herself up during a block string and mess with her aerial trajectory will lead to some headaches for defenders.

Unfortunately, all of the text in the video below is in Japanese, but I've done my best to paraphrase the main points of Neo's abilities in this story. BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle 2.0 / Special Edition is scheduled to launch on November 21, 2019.

You can find the previous overview trailer for Senran Kagura's Yumi here.
