Yes! Very Happy
It finally happen! RWBY in a fighting game by Arc System Works!
That meeting between Roosterteeth and Arc System Works months ago finally bear its fruit.
Hopefully if Blazblue Cross Tag Battle becomes a hit, Arc System Works might do a standalone RWBY fighting game.

I heard BB CF didn't have English audio I didn't bother buying the game hopefully the switch ver has English audio, I find the English cast of BB more appealing to me.

Don't bother waiting. After the update for Central Fiction to add Jubei & balance changes, Team Blue will be going forward with BBCTB. As I've stated on many outlets, if there was going to be a English dub, it would have already been done by now since the game has been out since November 1 of last year on consoles and April 26 on Steam. Within the time period leading up to the Steam release, they would have already released a English voice DLC already but it never happened.

Might have to do something with that Voice Actor Union strike from a few months back also but who knows. Regardless, it's pointless to wait for it when it's clear no English dub is going to be made for it.

Where's my P5 fighter, ArcSys? Just using P4 so you can reuse assets on the cheap?

Personally I'm hoping for an all out Persona fighting game. Pull in characters from all of the games, maybe even include a SMT character like the protagonist from Nocturne.

Plus I want a Naoto vs Akechi sub story. Maybe shoehorn Katsuya Suou in there as well since he's referred to in P5.

It irks me that Arc Sys went through the trouble of getting Lindsey to voice Ruby, a non-union actress that while talented, is still very new to the industry, and yet BBCF will never get its dub by a professional cast who went out of their way to come back for each installment. Yes it's been a year since the announcement, and I'm still salty about it.

FINALLY Jubei gets to be playable. What were they holding him off for?

The more bonkers the crossover, the more I like it.

Is Central Fiction the only one without an English dub? I quite like what the English cast has been doing, and it'd be a real shame if they couldn't do it this time around.

....Wouldn't a Persona 5 fighter look pretty much like Arena and Ultimax?

Yeah, it's the final installment of the main series storyline and none of the cast were contacted about any plans for a dub, and they found out it wouldn't have a dub the same time we did, on Twitter.

RWBY'S voice cast is originally English, so it's not really comparable to a dub. The other games have their original voices as well, they just so happen to be in Japanese. No extra money needed to be paid.
