Arc System Works Reveal 3 more Characters for BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle!

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Well fellow gamers here we have a rare case of lightning striking twice in one week! We’ve started the week off with a solid BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle reveal and now we end the work week with yet another BBCTB reveal. Talk about luck well at any rate. Today we’ve got something for everyone As this time they’ve evened out the reveal a bit but left a bit of a void of absence with no RWBY character reveal (here’s hoping to seeing the RWBY Bae Yang appear in the future) But with that being said all is not loss as this reveal possibly has something for everyone. Today we’re introduced into the likes of characters from BlazBlue, Persona 4: Arena, and Under Night In-Birth.  Check out the trailer below for a full preview:

As you can see it’s a pretty well mixed bag as it has been revealed that Noel Vermillion (BlazBlue), Chie Satonaka(Persona 4: Arena), And Waldstein(Under Night In-Birth), are this week reveals and should provide a variety that many fans of this upcoming fighter are looking forward to.

Editors Opinion: This is one of my personal favorite reveals thus far. When this game was first announced I was mostly hoping for Noel, Tager and Nu-11(V-13 at best) So far my wish is 1/3rd’s complete lol. I personally find Noel to be a fun character and very agile as well as possessing a wide arsenal of attacks. And Waldstein seems like a character more so to grapple style of character. I still hope that Tager is revealed as far Blazblue character implementation is concerned.

What do you think of this week’s reveal, as hinted at the end of the video. There will be another character reveal next month which we can’t wait to see who’s going to be involved. If you’re in the FGC actively there are currently rumblings that Blake from the RWBY series is the one of the next character reveals but it can only be taken as rumor at this point. But what do you think of this reveal of the roster so far. Are you excited for this title and what characters do you hope to see from either of the franchises? Will you be picking it up? As the months pass we will do a run down of all the characters included among the 4 series. But with being said comment below let us know do you think.

Arc System Works Reveal more Characters for Blaz Blaze Cross Tag Battle!

 

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

If you haven’t seen this weekend was quite the reveal and we’re not talking about football. We’re talking BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. As we draw near the official release in 2018 Arc System Works has been privy with releasing details for this up and coming fighter. Well we’ve luckily been given the opportunity of another character reveal. And this time was it wasn’t just one character or game play. This go round it has revealed that Weiss Schnee is on the way to the BBCTB scene. As you can see below via the trailer that she’s not the only one that’s on the way. Check out the trailer below to see what we mean.

If you’re a fan in particular of the RWBY series you can see that Weiss is one of the fan favorites alongside others from the late great Monty Oum (Creator of the RWBY series). Moving forward, The trailer reveals not only Weiss but others such as Hazama from the blazblue series.

Hazama-blazblue

As well as Rachel Alucard from the series.

As of now there is no set release date for the up and coming fighter only a release window of 2018. Although one would suspect that it will possibly release shortly after Dragon Ball FighterZ to avoid a conflict of interest and as well to let the Fighter game community (FGC) adjust and embrace the Dragon Ball FighterZ title first.

Editors Opinion: I am looking forward to this title as it has a great mixture of music from the Blazblue, UNIEL, RWBY and Persona 4 Arena Series. Although I particularly hope that they also include some characters from Persona 5. I am very much looking forward to playing this title. 3 Particular characters I am looking forward to and hoping to see on the roster are “Tager, V-13 (BlazBlue Series) and Yang (RWBY Series). One can only hope, but overall this title is looking fantastic. I’m not too familiarized with the UNIEL characters outside of Mika, However I am looking forward to see what the lesser known titles are offering as well. 

But what do you think? What characters would you like to see. How do you think the game play looks. Are you interested in this fighter at all? Comment below and let us know. For news like this and more make sure to check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Announced to release January 16th

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

In one of the worse kept secrets among the FGC Sony has finally revealed that Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be releasing January 16th 2018. As reported via the PlayStation blog and official Capcom site. It has been revealed that the much anticipated and requested feature Arcade mode will finally be included for all users of Street Fighter V. Included with this news is that all characters will be available for free once Street Fighter: AE is released. Capcom has stated “Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will come with all 28 characters, which includes those from Season 1 and Season 2”  and they still have one more character that they will be announcing very soon.

  • All characters will receive a second V-Trigger you can choose prior to matches starting

More news will be released in the near future (PSX/Capcom Cup Finals, or PGW) here’s what capcom had to say in closing per the PS Blog.

As we promised in the past, the initial purchase of Street Fighter V is still the only one that you’ll need as the new gameplay-related content in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be part of a free in-game update for current players once it releases! That means if you currently play Street Fighter V, you won’t need to purchase anything else to get Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, etc. – you’ll just need to download the update! For those who don’t currently have Street Fighter V, you’ll be able to purchase Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for $39.99, which will include everything we’ve mentioned above. We wanted to make sure there’s something to celebrate for both current and new players alike.

Editors Opinion: As a fan and lover of the Street Fighter Series this is good news and I hope that it can refresh and ignite a general interest in fans of the series and the FGC community. As many competitive Fighters are on the Rise (Dragon Ball Fighterz, Blazeblue Tag Battle etc.) Capcom has to remind the world the reason why street fighter has lasted for so many years (30 to be exact) and rekindle that competitive edge. Let’s see if this gives them that edge they so desperately need.

But enough of my thoughts what do you think of this news. Does this interest you to make time and the effort of purchasing the long respected fighter again or for the first time this gen? As you know with this news you can expect “The Online Arcade to have many more Tournament with this great news. With that being said comment below and let us know your thoughts.

Street Fighter V- Here Comes A New Challenger

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Capcom just unveiled Ed, the third DLC character for Season 2 six upcoming new characters to Street Fighter V. Ed was an experiment in S.I.N, a division of Shadaloo, looking to replace the body of M. Bison. After certain events, Balrog found him and raised him. But due to the experiments, Ed ages faster than normal humans, giving him the more adult look than what we seen in the SFV story mode. Heavily influenced by Balrog, his fighting style is surrounded on boxing with the Psycho Powers inherited from M. Bison genes. 9847E1DB-B48A-40C0-8CD0-BF7ED9B2DB0B-10223-00000DE48545764EEd will be available for free in the upcoming Street Fighter V new CFN beta, beginning on May 11th and ending on the 14th. Season 2 Character Pass can be purchased for the cost of $29.99, which will give you access to Akuma, Kolin, and Ed with the three remaining character that’s yet to be announced. The pass also comes with Premium Battle Costumes with colors 3-10 unlocked and default costume colors 3-10 for each character. That’s not all, Season Pass holders will also receive an exclusive PS4 theme.2B0C1F4B-B484-4539-A069-7B74BBBA68E4-10223-00000DE518BF76D8

Ed’s Story and Battle Costumes:9CCC2C65-AD48-4F7A-B5AB-FEB1BF0F2443-10223-00000DE4DCCEFB52618C0F5D-1766-48BD-A9BE-D981C5984652-10223-00000DE50C47CC9F

Here is the breakdown for Ed’s V-Skill, V-Trigger, and Critical Art by Capcom:Ed VskillV-Skill: Psycho Snatcher- Ed releases Psycho Power from his palm, pulling himself or opponents depending on how long he charges it up.

68031B74-5936-4168-910C-CFC38E6A7E43-10480-00000E70B50FBAD2V-Trigger: Psycho Cannon- With a full V-meter, Ed releases an enormous amount of Psycho Power. He can follow alongside it, allowing him to pepper in shots when it connects with the opponent.

CCFCFA8E-D76A-4A65-A715-C7EAEE730E07-10480-00000E70B3D46679Critical Art: Psycho Barrage- Ed lunges forward with a series of punches. If at any point he connects, he’ll continue weaving around the opponent, slipping in quick combinations of Psycho-punches ending with a powerful uppercut.

Ed inputsEd won’t play like a traditional Street Fighter character, due to how different his button inputs are. His special moves doesn’t rely on motion or charge inputs, but simple button presses. Special moves could be executed by simultaneous button presses or repeatedly pushing on a button. Ed’s only traditional motion input is his Critical Art.

In my opinion: I can definitely appreciate what Capcom is doing with these new characters. Ed looks super fun to play as a character and I’m interested to see how this new input layout for a Street Fighter will pan out. Ed will without a doubt will shake things up for Street Fighter V in a favorable way, bringing some diversity and possibly new players towards the game. E72EF4F4-0028-4507-961A-7DBEF2F45C26-10223-00000DE48F0191B8
