During the Arc System Works Fighting Game Award 2016, the developers revealed Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 for a Spring 2017 release in Japan.
Baiken (CV: Mayumi Asano)
Answer (Tomokazu Seki)
Here’s a look at trailer for Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, featuring introductions for Baiken and Answer:
In addition to Baiken and Answer being added as new playable characters, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 will provide an adjustment balance and new moves for all characters. Baiken will have a guard cancel. Jam, Raven, Kum, and Dizzy will also get new episodes. Newcomers Baiken and Answer will have their episodes as well. Story mode will get new scenarios added to it and some big changes coming to online mode. Those who already have Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator on PS4, PS3, and Steam will get to update to Rev 2 via paid-DLC. Arc System Works says that they’ll have a retail version of the game at an “affordable” price for those who are completely new to Guilty Gear Xrd.
We’ll likely hear more about it between January 20 through 22, when Arc System Works hosts their location test at Club Sega Akihabara 1 gokan in Tokyo and Hi-Tech Land Sega Nishinakajima-ten in Osaka.
Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 releases in Japan in Spring 2017 for arcade. A release window for PS4, PS3, and PC hasn’t been specified.
