In addition to the new characters of Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator, the updated version will also bring in a new and improved network lobby. Famitsu gives us a first look at its new style.
As previously reported, the new lobby will be shown in 3D as seen in the above screenshots. You’ll get to control your avatar and walk around these parts and communicate with other players.
The lobby will have open arcade machines, where you’ll get to sit down in order to start battles to give it more of an arcade center feel. While this might not sound like your everyday arcade center, there will also be an indoor pond in the lobby that will allow you to go fishing. Using this feature, you can acquire custom parts and emotions for your avatar, or character colors.
Player match rooms have also been improved. In addition to versus and spectate, you’ll also find arcade machines that you can use for training mode while waiting.
Again, the game has two main story modes. The regular “Story Mode” which lets you enjoy the main story of the game. There’s also the “Episode Mode” that features the story development that was told on the arcade version of the game.
Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator will feature new functions for beginners, including a tutorial that teaches you how to play in action game-like fashion, or virtual sticks that appear on the screen to show command movements. New character colors and system voices will be available in the first wave of DLCs alongside the game’s release in Japan on May 26, 2016.
North America will get the game on June 7, and Europe on June 10, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
