Iron Tager,V-13 and More Join the Fight in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle

Whats Up PlayStation Nation,

If you’ve been following our Online Arcade articles here at What’s Up PlayStation. It should be no secret we’re looking forward to this Blazblue Cross Tag Battle. In our previous trailer reveal it was announced that no further reveals would take place until December, and well fellow gamers December is here and we’ve got the scoop on this months reveal! As you can see via the image Tager is finally set to be revealed for this months announcements. I’m sure Arc System Works will reveal more info as the month closes. But for now you can see the trailer below and let us know what you think.

So as you can see via the above trailer. Iron Tager, V-13, and Makoto from BlazBlue and Es from Xblaze/Blazeblue will be playable in BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. So with these 4 behemoths being announced that leaves us with a pretty meaty roster so far. AzraelRagna the Bloodedge, Jin Kisaragi, Rachel Alucard, Hazama, and Noel Vermillion from BlazBlue; Yukiko Amagi, Yu Narukami, Yosuke Hanamura, and Chie Satonaka from Persona 4 Arena; Gordeau, Hyde, Linne, and Waldstein from Under Night In-Birth; and Ruby Rose and Weiss Schnee from RWBY. That’s about 20 characters so far with the inclusion of those mentioned from the above trailer.

Once again however, this month’s reveal so far haven’t announced any particular characters from RWBY so with January and a possible release fast approaching here’s hoping that we can hear more about some pivotal RWBY characters as well more from Under Night In Birth. But for now we can assume a pretty robust roster as this weeks reveals brings us up to 20 Playable Characters for the up coming fighter! So far it seems there’s someone for everyone. Arc System Works however has yet to give us a release window however we here at WUPS still believe and assume so far that we can expect this to release after Dragon Ball FighterZ as it would give both titles a bit of time to flourish and breath I assume.

(Editors Opinion: I can now breath a sigh of relief as now it stands that 3 of my favorite Blazblue characters have entered the fold as it stands I know have Iron Tager, Noel Vermillion and V-13 all that would make this circle complete honestly at this point would be the inclusion of Hakumen, Arakune From Blazblue, Yang from RWBY and Akatsuki from UNIEL [Under Night In Birth for those who don’t recognized the acronym.] And although I love many of Arc System Work’s Fighters I’ve yet to play Persona 4: Arena so that complete roster is foreign to me. But I look forward to playing this final product when it releases!)

But what do you think of this months trailer? Are you excited for these characters? Who would you like to see, How many characters do you hope to see on the final Roster? Comment below let us know. Make to sure to keep us bookmarked and check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.

Goku Black, Hit, And Beerus Joins Dragon Ball FighterZ Roster

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

In the latest issue of V-Jump, Goku Black(Zamasu), Hit, and the god of destruction Beerus was reveal as the most recent additions to Dragon Ball FighterZ roster. All three characters are extremely popular for the Dragon Ball Super series, so its no surprise they made it into Dragon Ball FighterZ roster. With the addition of these three characters, I’m sure the excitement for this game will be exponentially greater. It’s great to see such a diverse bunch of characters being added in Dragon Ball FighterZ so far. Dragon Ball FighterZ is set to launch in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26th, 2018.

Here is a brief breakdown of these characters:

Goku Black(Zamasu)

goku black(Zamasu)Goku Black’s Meteor special attack is “Work of the Gods,” in which he attacks with his hand transformed into a blade and follows with a cloning attack. Zamasu (Goku Black’s true form) also appears and can bind the opponent.

Beerus and Hit:

beerus HitBeerus’ Meteor special attack is “God of Destruction’s Judgment,” which seems to go from a throwing technique to a Headshot rush attack. He can also use “Sphere of Destruction,” which creates a sphere that explodes when it touches the enemy.

Hit’s Meteor special attack is “I Continue to Grow,” which stops time and unleashes multiple attacks one after the other. He uses instantaneous attacks and movement, as well as strike techniques.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Full V-Trigger List

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

With season 3 almost upon us, the wonderful folks over at Capcom-Unity decided to give a full breakdown of all the new V-Triggers being implemented in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Every character will now receive a second V-Trigger to mix things up a bit, giving new options, mix-ups, and combo potential. For all current owners of Street Fighter V, the Arcade Edition will come as a free update for PlayStation 4 and PC on January 16th, 2018.

2nd V-Trigger Breakdown:

V-2 RYURyu (Kakko Fubatsu) – While active, press HP + HK to use Isshin, a technique that counters the opponent’s attacks. Upon countering an attack, a shockwave of energy will be released around Ryu. If this shockwave hits the opponent, Ryu will perform a strike attack.

Using Isshin, Ryu can counter everything except throws, giving him a highly functional defensive option. The opponent will be vulnerable to additional attacks after the Isshin strike, making for a great opportunity to deal major damage.

V-2 CHUN-LIChun-Li (Kikosho) – Chun-Li fires a ball of energy from both her hands in this V-Trigger. Press HP + HK to fire another Kikosho.

For Kikosho after V-Trigger activation, hold down the buttons HP + HK, and Kikosho will gain guard break properties. The opponent will be vulnerable afterwards, giving Chun-Li an opportunity to deal additional damage.

V-2 CAMMYCammy (Delta Ambush) – Press HP + HK for Delta Ambush, where Cammy flies towards her opponent. Press forward plus HP + HK for Delta Step, a quick forward dash. Although there are no move variations from Delta Step, Cammy can cancel her normal moves from the dash. Use it in combos, or to help her keep up a fast-paced offensive rush.

Press kick during Delta Ambush for the downward kick move Reverse Edge, or press punch for the command throw Delta Twist.

V-2 BISONM. Bison (Psycho Nightmare) – While active, press HP + HK to perform the Psycho Crusher special move. Bison also gains Psycho Charge – press reverse half circle (forward to back) plus kick to perform a command throw that infuses the opponent with Psycho Power.

If an opponent has been hit with Psycho Charge, the Psycho Power infused into them will explode after a set period of time. If the Psycho Charge was successful, the infusion can also be detonated with Psycho Judgement (forward to back) plus kick at your own discretion

V-2 KENKen (Shinryuken) – Shinryuken is a powerful, multi-hit rising Shoryuken. If it hits, rapidly press punch to change the properties of the move. The landing recovery of the max-strength version from rapid button presses can be special move canceled, leading to some very powerful combos.

V-2 BIRDIEBirdie (Birdie Time) – While in Birdie Time, press HP + HK to perform a new chain attack. Bull Swing is a high chain attack and allows for follow-up attacks, while Bull Capture is a low-hitting chain attack that targets the opponent’s feet. Use the directional buttons for the different versions.

The flames Birdie shoots from his mouth on activation have a hitbox, and on hit the opponent can be hit with an additional attack. Also, the low-hitting chain Bull Capture can interact with the objects Birdie throws on the ground for his V-Skill, giving him a unique new approach to the neutral game.

V-2 NASHNash (Stealth Dash) – With Stealth Dash, Nash quickly moves towards his opponent. During movement, press punch for Justice Corridor, a strong overhead punch move, or press kick for Justice Shell, a kick that launches the opponent. Press back for a quick stop, making this V-Trigger great for high-speed movement options.

Both Justice Corridor and Justice Shell can be canceled on hit or block, allowing Nash to extend his combos or keep up the pressure on a blocking opponent. However, the same move cannot be canceled into itself.

V-2 NECALLINecalli (Clouded Mirror) – Starting with Arcade Edition, Clouded Mirror is a special move Necalli gains after activating his V-Trigger I. It is a ranged attack, where Necalli jumps at his opponent with a strike.

Hold down the buttons to greatly increase the move’s strength. Necalli can juggle the opponent after the max strength version hits. Since it has quite a bit of startup, use together with Culminated Power to avoid having the opponent take advantage of the startup.

V-2 RASHIDRashid (Easifa) – Easifa strengthens Rashid’s kick special moves while active. Press HP + HK to perform Haboob, a wind projectile that has a different trajectory than his Whirlwind Shot.

Easifa strengthens the forward movement and hit properties of the kick special moves, increases range, and provides for other strengthening effects. It also increases the jump speed and distance of his front flip and allows Rashid to perform a wall jump after EX Eagle Spike hits, giving him more options in the neutral game and in combos.

V-2 LAURALaura (Shock Stance) – While active, Laura will be able to perform the dodge maneuver Matsuda Sway by pressing HP + HK. During Matsuda Sway, press HP + HK again to perform the command throw Shock Choke.

Matsuda Sway dodges non-throw attacks. Press forward with MP + MK during Matsuda Sway for a forward dash. Shock Choke can be performed from the dash, so Laura can use this to avoid her opponent’s big attacks and close the distance.

V-2 SIMDhalsim (Yoga Sansara) – Dhalsim creates a multi-hit orb of fire in front of him. This V-Trigger can also be performed in the air. Hitting the fire orb with Yoga Flame or Yoga Gale will change its properties.

Hitting the fire orb with Yoga Flame or Yoga Gale will put it in motion. Its trajectory will differ depending on the move used. The orb will keep moving while it’s on screen, and its trajectory can be further changed by hitting it again with Yoga Flame or Yoga Gale.

V-2 MIKAR. Mika (Steel Chair) – Nadeshiko will run out from behind Mika and throw a steel chair at the opponent. Hold down the button for Fightin’ Dirty, where Nadeshiko will run up to the opponent and take two swings at them with the steel chair.

Steel Chair hits multiple times, making it a great tool for combos. As Nadeshiko attacks twice with the steel chair in Fightin’ Dirty, use it together with Mika’s attacks to open up the opponent.

V-2 KARINKarin (Tenha no Kata) – While active, Karin will be able to use her counter move Yasha Gaeshi Tenchi by pressing HP + HK. What Karin does afterwards will change depending on the type of attack she counters.

Countering a low attack results in Yasha Gaeshi Chi, while all other attacks will result in Yasha Gaeshi Ten. Both moves can be canceled into from the recovery of her special moves and V-Skill, so Karin can turn situations where she’s normally at a disadvantage, into her favor.

V-2 F.A.N.GF.A.N.G (Koryo Dokuda) – Nishikyu and Ryobenda will be strengthened while active. With an increase in hits and the attack hitbox, this improves F.A.N.G’s ability to restrict his opponents movements.

While active, Nikankyaku can be performed from Nishikyu, giving F.A.N.G a way to close the distance and open up his opponent in close.

V-2 ZANGIEFZangief (Cossack Muscle) – Cossack Muscle changes the properties of Screw Pile Driver and Borscht Dynamite. The effects last until the V-Gauge Timer runs out, or if one of the aforementioned special moves is successfully hit.

In addition to increased damage for the Screw Pile Driver and Borscht Dynamite, Screw Pile Driver can be special move canceled and will combo, leading to command throw combos that usually aren’t possible.

V-2 VEGAVega (Alegrias) – While active, press HP + HK to perform Flash Arch – Rossa, which will counter the opponent’s attack, or perform the counter attack independently with Flash Arch – Granate (forward plus HP + HK).

Upon landing a successful counter, Vega will counter-attack, kicking the opponent up into the air, leaving them vulnerable to additional attacks. Flash Arch – Granate is the attack part without the counter. It’s good for usage in combos, but keep in mind that Flash Arch – Granate cannot counter attacks.

V-2 ALEXAlex (Rage Boost) – While in Rage Boost, Alex will gain the moves Flying DDT –  HP + HK, and Choke Sleeper –  HP + HK. Flying DDT is a moving throw that works against standing opponents. In addition to being a surprising mid-range attack, Flying DDT can be canceled from moves that cause a lot of hit stun, resulting in somewhat long-range combo ability.

Choke Sleeper can be performed only after Flash Chop on hit or block, and on hit leaves Alex in close to continue his offensive pressure. Choke Sleeper only hits close range, so be mindful of the range at which the Flash Chop hits.

V-2 GUILEGuile (Knife Edge) – Knife Edge is a power-up V-Trigger for Guile’s Somersault Kick. The Somersault Kick will create a projectile that will be fired towards the opponent. This projectile can be on screen at the same time as Sonic Boom and Sonic Cross.

While active, Guile will perform two iterations of kicks for his EX Somersault Kick. The EX version doesn’t have the projectile like the normal version does, but is good for use in combos and counter attacks.

V-2 BALROGBalrog (No Mercy) – While active, press HP + HK for the command throw B3.

If Balrog is having trouble opening his opponent up, this V-Trigger can help improve his offensive abilities while in close. B3 also deals a high amount of stun, so if the opponent already has a lot of stun built up, an active V-Trigger can make them feel pressured.

V-2 IBUKIIbuki (Fuma Shuriken) – Ibuki will throw a giant shuriken at the opponent, which comes back after going off-screen. Press HP + HK for Fuma Shuriken – Haku, which is for use against grounded opponents, and press back plus HP + HK for Fuma Shuriken – Kokufu, which is angled upwards for anti-air usage.

Due to the length at which the shuriken is on screen, it serves to limit the opponent’s movements. Ibuki can continue to combo the opponent after hit, and if it’s blocked she can use her Airborne Kunai and Kasumigake to confuse the opponent’s attempts to block.

V-2 JURIJuri (Feng Shui Engine Beta) – Juri emits a field around her that drains her opponent’s EX gauge, taking it for her own.

The roundhouse kick she performs upon activation has a hitbox and draws the opponent in, giving her a good opportunity to absorb the opponent’s gauge. The gauge absorption effect is paused while Juri performs a throw and when she is in mid-air, so be sure to think wisely about your fighting methods while this V-Trigger is active.

V-2 AKUMAAkuma (Shiretsu Hasshi) – Using Shiretsu Hasshi, Akuma can link together powerful attacks using the V-Timer instead of the EX gauge. Grounded HP/HK attacks and each of his special moves can be canceled into EX special moves.

There are many moves he will be able to cancel into the EX special moves, giving him the ability to deal great damage from a number of situations.

V-2 KOLINKolin (Absolute Zero) – While active, Kolin’s punch attacks and Hailstorm will be strengthened. Additionally, she has a forward dash where she will slide across the floor on a sheet of ice.

She can also press HP + HK to perform Frost Edge.

During this move, Kolin’s attacks will be given dash properties, similar to medium Vanity Step.  She can perform a high-speed Frost Edge from her forward dash, and if it hits, press HP + HK for Reverse Javelin, which will freeze the opponent and prevent them from recovering stun meter.

V-2 EDEd (Enhanced Snatcher) – While active, press HP + HK to perform an enhanced version of the Psycho Snatcher, the Ultra Snatcher. Use the directional buttons to change between the ground and anti-air versions.

For Ultra Snatcher – Ground, Ed will fly towards the opponent with a strike. On hit he will be able to combo afterwards, and on block Ed will be at the advantage.

Ultra Snatcher – Air, can be used both as anti-air, and in juggle combos.

V-2 ABIGAILAbigail (Hybrid Charge) – While active, Abigail will be able to use the powerful tackle move Metro Crash by pressing HP + HK. It can be strengthened to a second level upon holding down the buttons.

Abigail will have hyper armor while charging, letting him absorb multiple hits. However, the charge will be vulnerable to throws and Critical Arts. Maximum charge Metro Crash will guard break, and Abigail keeps his hyper armor even while moving forward.

V-2 MENATMenat (Prophecy of Thoth) – Prophecy of Thoth surrounds Menat with 6 Soul Power energy orbs. Use Judgement of Thoth to fire them all at once.

After Judgement of Thoth, Menat can get a new set of orbs by pressing HP + HK.

Use a reverse quarter circle (down to back) with different punch buttons to change the orb trajectory when firing, for use in controlling the opponent’s movements, anti-air, and extending combos.

V-2 ZEKUZeku (Karura Tenzan) – Both Old and Young Zeku share the same V-Trigger, Karura Tenzan. Upon activation Zeku moves forward with a launcher kick. If it connects, Zeku will switch identities and continue attacking.

It has priority against all non-grounded strike attacks, making it highly functional as a counter attack. Use the directional buttons to determine what side Zeku will land on after the additional attacks, allowing him to switch sides with his opponent.

We want to be as open as possible when it comes to sharing out our announcements or updates to everyone that participates within these tournaments.

One thing we would like to do is lessen the wait time for a lot of these upcoming tournaments. In order to do that, we created a general rules guide for all current and new participants for The Online Arcade.

The Online Arcade General Rules:

  3. Read the description for each tournament before signing up/checking in.
  4. Key Factors are crucial for every tournament. If broken by a player, the penalty will be a game lost within a match towards that player.
  5. All participants must be ready for their matches when called upon(Invites). There will only be a 5 minute grace period. If the player is not there in the respected time, that is considered a loss.
  6. It is a requirement to have a active E-mail address, so you can get the proper notifications from the Challonge website.
  7. No Wi-Fi!! Must have a stable wired connection. (These are online tournaments)

Our goal is to achieve 75 to 100 followers by the end of the year, so we can try and claim a Twitch partnership.

However I am optimistic for more variety in the roster so far. For the most part we’ve been pretty much able to guess to some degree who would be included in the game. However I still look forward to playing this fighter in the future and you can most definitely expect The Online Arcade to host many a tournaments of this title in the future.)

However it seems that PlayStation is making no excuses and bringing the most anticipated fighters state side this gen. I really find it coincidental that I was actually streaming this game last night as well and was hoping to hear word on a U.S. release. And with today’s news the wait will finally be over as I will double support this game in hopes of receiving other fighters like this stateside one can only hope we’ll get titles suck as melty blood and others on the PS4 before this generation is over.
