Update: ArcSys has released the English version of Yumi's overview trailer which you can check out after the jump.

Earlier:Fans had been expecting to see Senran Kagura characters cross over into huge roster of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle for over a year now, and they'll soon get the chance to see that come to fruition with its next big expansion.

Arc System Works recently released a new gameplay breakdown trailer for Senran Kagura's Yumi, who is one of the nine new characters being added to the game's Version 2.0 / Special Edition expansion.

We get a chance to see what Yumi's normals and specials look like in action relying almost exclusively on her dual fans and ice blasts to do damage against opponents.

Her close range moves are elegant like a dance spinning the fans around her and summoning pillars of ice though she's also quite comfortable fighting from the midrange, as we also see her throw her fans and confirm into a full launching combo with her air dance.

Yumi also has an ice counter that appears to make her enemy fly backwards and open them up to be chased down by the special air dance as well. She also looks to have a bit of a ranged overhead attack dropping ice over top of their heads which can also lead into a nice follow up combo.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Special Edition / Version 2.0 is scheduled to launch November 21 with the new expansion of characters priced at $25 alongside the free system update. The other new fighters includes Celica A Mercury, Elizabeth, Tohru Adachi, Neo Politan, Hilda, Susanoo, Akatsuki and Blitztank.
