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.
Guilty Gear Xrd REV2 will release for PS4, PS3 and PC sometime this year.
