No Guilty Gear characters joining BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, series creator says only four franchises to be represented 'for now'

At EVO 2017 last month, a new crossover fighting title was unveiled. BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle pits characters from the series, Persona 4 Arena, Under Night In-Birth, and RWBY all against each other in a 2v2 setting.

Famitsu recently sat down with BlazBlue series creator Toshimichi Mori to discuss the upcoming fighter. In the interview, we learn about the fan reaction to the announcements at EVO, as well as details on Cross Tag Battle.

Long-time followers of Arc System Works' games might be wondering if we'll see any Guilty Gear characters in the upcoming crossover. Mori does address this, and unfortunately, there is nothing planned at this time.

At this time, BBCTB will focus soley on the four aforementioned franchises, however, Mori does note this is a "for now" situation. We could see the game expand beyond this in the future.

Famitsu's interview was conducted entirely in Japanese, but thanks to the efforts of our own MajinTenshinhan, we have an English translation. Below you will find a snippet directly from Famitsu's article.
