Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator is Announced, Comes with Two New Characters, New Control Scheme

guilty gear xrd revelator 05-27-15-13

We’ve learned (via Famitsu) that a new version of Guilty Gear Xrd is coming.

The new version, dubbed simply Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator, is coming to Japanese arcades. The new version brings with it two new characters, which you can see below:

Johnny Sfondi, the infamous pirate, is the only new character to be confirmed thus far. The second character, shown above, will be revealed in time.

Revelator is a new version of the game, coming with new systems, the expected balancing, the aforementioned new characters, and even a new playing mode.

The new “Stylish Mode” is actually coming to the game, a beginner’s method of playing seen in the BlazBlue series. Fans looking to wet their feet can play in this mode and enjoy simpler controls.

Location tests for Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator are planned between June 5th to the 19th, and from June 19th through the 21st. While a western release wasn’t confirmed, the Arc System Works official Facebook page shared a link for the announcement, saying:

Johnny. A new character. A new control scheme.

Say hello to Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-!

Such a tease. We’ll keep you guys posted.

    Still no Baiken, or Bridget, or Jam… I’ll wait for 2-3 more versions before getting GGXrd.

    It’s really annoying. I played the game and it’s amazing, but it’s missing lots of characters. I want it but it feels useless to get it.

    As expected. Less than a week after we get Xrd here in the EU, a new version is announced. This is a prime example of why people shouldn’t buy fighting games day 1. Other than Tekken that is. They do it right.

    Please do it as DLC. For /once/ in your existence please think of your fans ArcSys. It’s getting increasingly harder to justify my love for you.
    Also fuck Johnny, gimme back Jam and Testament.

    I hope they patch in PS3 stick support with this, or I’m still not playing Xrd

    Seriously, what is it going to take to get Baiken in this game?

    Really hope they make this available as DLC like Capcom has done for Street Fighter IV and it’s iterations.

    Enough time has passed where most NA folks are probably done with the game, aside from the hardcore fans. But it would still be nice to just get it as DLC with a reduced price.

    I feel real sorry for you EU folks. You’re just now getting the game. Not only are most people done with the game, but a new version is just announced. Thems the breaks, I guess.

    I wonder if this will get a limited ed too.

    Stop bitching and buy a PS4 stick. Jesus, it’s not breaking anyone’s bank. Sell your own stick. It has compatibility to both PS3 and PS4 games.

    so is this just sign with new characters or a new story like their other games?

    Probably an arm and a leg.

    … Maybe just an arm.
