Arc System Works is getting into the microtransaction groove with Guilty Gear II Overture by charging a small fee to play as the boss character Raven. I don’t remember him being a playable character in any other Guilty Gear game so this may be a first. The experience will cost 400 Microsoft Points ($5) when the appropriate item appears on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
However, it might not cost anything when Aksys releases Guilty Gear II Overture in North America. They are adding extra content not found in the Japanese release in the US version.
In case you’re wondering what Raven actually does, take a look at this clip.
