With #BBCTB, we thought we'd SWITCH it up.

BBCTB is coming to PS4, PC, & Switch!


Current ETA is 2018.

Added to Most Wanted section.

Comes out May 31 in Japan, June 5 on Steam.

Review: http://culture.vg/reviews/in-depth/blaz ... 18-pc.html

From Discord:

CULT|Diamond Dawg
The comparison to DBZF in that review is kinda funny, since almost all the complaints he has about BBTag in the preceding paragraph were also directed at DBZF for six months or so after its release. I used to see a lot of criticisms about how most of the cast felt similar, how each character had the same generic combo route, and how limited normals were. Then people figured out that there was actually a lot more to DBZF that they had been missing out on.
I don't know enough about BBTag to say if that'll be the case or not, but it makes me wonder if that will be the response to every new Arc Sys release
especially since they seem pretty committed to making their fighters a lot easier to play now

He has a bit where he says that DBFZ is superior for reasons lacking from BBTag
Also, the forum is a more appropriate venue for review feedback than Discord

CULT|Diamond Dawg
you're right, sorry about that.

Stuff here gets lost, in the game's forum thread it doesn't
No worries
I'll copy-past the above comments in the thread
I've also found a mildly positive review
https://steamcommunity.com/id/shadowd63 ... ed/702890/
It's not very convincing
I read both carefully, and the negative one seemed far more well-argued to me
In fact, both reviews say 3/5 to me (edited)
The only way I could see this game being 4/5 is if there's quite a bit of depth in the tag mechanics
Personally, however, I don't like tag games
Either way, if you can find a better review, or write one, let me know, preferably in the thread
