Here’s a rundown of the new features, via PQube:

  • New characters – Baiken and Answer will join the battle.
  • New Story in Episode Mode – Expanded story and arcade modes shed new light on Jam, Kum, Raven, Dizzy, Answer and Baiken!
  • New Stages – Battle it out on brand new stages.
  • New Moves – Beloved characters receive new moves and new animations.
  • Re-balancing of the Cast – Every fighter has received extensive revisions to their move sets.

Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2 is also coming to North America sometime this year.

    Depending on the upgrade price I may get it. Arc System Works are going a bit overboard with these yearly releases.

    I’m assuming that ArkSys had a panel for Q&A at Anime Ascension this past weekend. If so, does anyone know if they were asked if dubs have a chance of returning in Rev2, and if they responded?

    They did what we thought Capcom would do with Street Fighter IV

    I think you meant to say SFV. Capcom already did that with SFIV. That being said they messed up SFV quite badly.

    When you compare SFIV to Blazblue, people were seeing Capcom was taking the same road they did with SFII, ie many spinoff we got 4 in total, they didn’t release Super at full price, they propose to upgrade the game for a decent price. The upgrades were even compatible with the original SFIV. Even ultra was very cheap I bought the physical edition to get the old DLC costume.

    Blazblue, we got new episode at full price with DLC characters who was going to be payable in the next games, it’s the reason I didn’t get into the franchise. I would prefer Arc System Works proposed the possibilities to upgrade their games. Even if Blazblue had a better story mode than SFIV, I thought it was very annoying to buy each episode released to understand the story and made the previous games useless. I’m happy Arc System Works made the possibility to upgrade Rev2, even if I like the Guilty Gear franchise I won’t buy a new game each year at full price.

    SFV is a mess because it’s a early access game sold at full price and due to what they did with SFIV and MvC3 with UMvC3, everyone is waiting the definitive version even if Capcom claim they won’t do that no one believes them.

    I bought vanilla SFIV and nothing else.

    Both of them are pretty crap with this. Now even Tekken got the DLC herpes. At least KOFXIV was a complete game.
