Arc System Works has announced three more characters who will be joining the BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle roster as DLC: Hakumen, Naoto Shirogane and Vatista.

Hakumen is from BlazBlue, Naoto Shirogane is from Persona 4 Arena and Vatista is from Under Night In-Birth. All three characters are part of the “Cross Tag Character Pack 3” which will cost $4.99 on its own, or $19.99 when purchased alongside the other five “Character Pack” add-ons in the comprehensive “Cross Tag Character Collection” DLC.

Also, as a reminder, the first DLC pack, featuring Platinum The Trinity, Kanji Tatsumi and Orie, will be free for a limited time.

This announcement comes a little over a week after Arc System Works released a trailer showing off how some of the characters sound in English. As you’ll notice later, this trailer was only in Japanese, but you can be sure that the three characters featured within — like the rest — will have their English voices fully intact when the full game arrives.

And though we don’t get to hear the English in this trailer, there is plenty of action and it does promise that we’ll be getting another announcement “shortly.”

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is due out for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on May 31 in Japan and Asia, and June 5 in North America.
