BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle: details on the various game modes + Famitsu DX Packs

Like all fighting games worth their salt (especially those sold at full price), BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle features various game modes, and it’s those very game modes Arc System Works chose to detail today.

Here’s those found in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle:

  • Episode Mode: basically, the story mode. Takes place in the “Phantom Field”, and tells a cross-over story between the 4 universes (BlazBlue CentralFiction, Persona 4 Arena, RWBY, and Under Night In-Birth);
  • Tactics Mode: a training mode that allows you to learn how to control each character;
  • Survival Mode: your standard Survival Mode, where you need to defeat enemies one after the other until your run out of HP;
  • Training Mode: a training mode where you can learn how to play;
  • Gallery mode: a place where you can check out various illustrations;
  • Replay Theatre: a place where you can check out battle footage you recorded.

Here’s some screenshots showcasing each one of those game modes, but also the key visual:
