Characters from Rooster Teeth’s RWBY is hitting BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle when it arrives later this May. In an interview with GamerHub TV, game producer, Toshimichi Mori, talked about the franchise’s inclusion into BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle.
It turns out Mori is a big fan of RWBY and along with the President of Arc System Works, the two flew all the way to Texas (to Rooster Teeth) to talk about a collaboration.
“As you may know, Monty has created various exciting videos in the past, and unfortunately he passed. But Mori-san was always a fan of RWBY and he enjoyed all the videos that Monty created, so he was hoping that there would be a chance to meet, but unfortunately that did not happen. Then there was an interview with Forbes where the question is, “Is there any specific character or IP that you really like or you are a fan of?’ And Mori-san answered, ‘RWBY’. And with that, it led to taking on this spirit of Monti … and that kind of started this whole discussion. And after meeting, Mori-san was really confident that he could have a really good partnership. They made a trip to Texas – Mori-san and the president – and they made a presentation about BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle and asking, ‘Could we have RWBY?’ And the answer was, ‘Of course.’ So that’s how this happened.”
So that’s how RWBY came to be on BlazBlue. You can also watch the interview below.
