Arc System Works is releasing new character trailers all the time and now the time has come for Akatsuki to get a proper spotlight. He's yet another DLC character as a part of the 2.0 update

Akatsuki is a military strategist who disappeared during the battle of the Arctic Circle only to return way more powerful 50 years later. He sure waited a long time! We don't really see his fighting technique in this video, but what we do see is that he has style. Some of his combos are also shown in the video - the dash combo in particular.

The 2.0 character update will cost you $25 and it will include eight additional DLC fighters + (of course) Akatsuki himself. There will also be a free update on the same day and it will include some UI tweaks and some balance changes, among other things.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is now available on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can watch the trailer here:
