“Why didn’t I think of that sooner? I should try asking him though, really.”
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is already a hell of a crossover, featuring characters from RWBY, BlazBlue, and Persona 4– but it looks like the game’s producer wants to tackle one more property with the game. Toshimichi Mori, producer of the game, spoke to Forbes, and revealed his enthusiasm for getting NieR Automata‘s 2B and 9S in the game.
“As far as playing games go… recently, right? I’ve been playing Nier: Automata again. Of course, I beat it a while ago on PS4, but I saw it on Steam. On sale. That game is really well done. I’ve still got a lot to learn from it,” he said, adding, “Hey, we should release 2B and 9S on BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. Yeah, that would be good. I would want to play that. Should I ask them? Haha.”
Which sounds like a joke at first, right? But then, later on, he went back to the topic, expressing his desire about how much he liked NieR, and wanted characters from that game in Cross Tag Battle, suggesting it is an idea that he is seriously contemplating.
“I mentioned it a little earlier, too, but Nier. That would be an amazing project to work on. 2B and 9S would be amazing additions. Why didn’t I think of that sooner? I should try asking him though, really.
“But, having said all of that, and having created BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, if you go down the path of collaborations, it’s endless really. So, I still want to be very mindful of creating my own content. I hope you all stay tuned and look forward to what we make next.”
Personally, I don’t think anyone would say no to more 9S or 2B, right? Hopefully he does go ahead and get them over in the game- I think that sounds like a fantastic idea, personally. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is out now on PS4, Switch, and PC in North America; the European release is on June 22.
