‘Guilty Gear Xrd REV2’ Coming To NA This Year

As suspected, the stand-alone Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- upgrade is coming to North America “soon”.

Arc System Works and North American Guilty Gear publisher Aksys recently confirmed Guilty Gear Xrd REV2 will see a North American release on the PS3 and PS4 sometime “soon” following Japan’s not-yet-specified Spring 2017 window. Due to Sony’s player-base migrating to the PS4, the PS4 version will release as both a digital and physical title, however PS3 owners will be limited to a digital-only release. If players own a copy of 2016’s Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-, they can purchase a digital upgrade to REV2 regardless of the system.

The announcement only notes the PS4 and PS3 versions, as the PC versions of -SIGN- and -REVELATOR- were both released with Arc System Works acting as the publisher, not Aksys.

Guilty Gear Xrd REV2 was announced¬†in January as the closing stinger to Arc System Works’s own Guilty Gear Xrd tournament. The stand-alone update includes two additional characters- Chipp Zanuff’s “Chief of Staff”¬†Answer, and returning fan-favorite Baiken. The entire cast will receive gameplay balancing adjustments and a handful of reworked attack animations. New stages, music, cutscenes and proper Arcade Mode story elements will also be added for Jam Kuradoberi, Kum Haehyun, Raven, Dizzy, Answer and Baiken.
