Aksys Games and Arc System Works have just announced that 2.5D brawler Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 will be available in the U.S. as both a physical and digital PlayStation 4 standalone edition. REV 2, or Revelator 2, is the sequel to 2015’s action title Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- which came with refined 3D cell-animations and is currently on Steam with overwhelmingly positive reviews.
Last year, Guilty Gear Xrd – REVELATOR – saw the introduction of Dizzy, a fan-favourite character who was available as free DLC for a limited time. Compared to the previous iteration, REV 2 will introduce new fighters, moves, and story chapters:
- Upgrades, Lots of Upgrades – Two new characters, Baiken and Answer enter the battle! New stages, moves and motions are just the beginning of new content to explore!
- Legends of Rock – Expanded story and arcade modes shed new light on Jam, Kum, Raven, Dizzy, Answer and Baiken!
- Balance is the Key – A complete re-balancing of each fighter means that everything old is new again! Explore different fighting techniques with your favorite characters or start fresh with new brawlers!
Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 is coming out on May 26 for Ps3 and Ps4, at a RRP of $39.99 USD for the standalone version or $19.99 USD as an upgrade for Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-. A PC port is yet to be confirmed, but if the Steam release of Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- is anything to go by, chances are looking good.
