Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator Confirmed for Spring 2016 Release


Aksys Games has revealed, on their official site, that Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator – an update to 2014’s 2.5D fighting game Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign – will be making its way over to North America, in tandem with its Japanese release. No pricing has been announced or whether a paid update will be available for those who have purchased Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign.

Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator will provide updated mechanics, new modes, and, of course, new fighters. Long-time fans of the Guilty Gear franchise will be keen to spot returning characters like Jam Kuradoberi and Johnny Sfondi.

Dizzy will also be making a return, thanks in part to receiving 32,990 votes in a ballot – held by developer Arc System Works – a triumph over fan-favorite Bridget by only 350 votes. Unfortunately, however, a trailer has not been released that features Dizzy in-game.

A brand new fighter to the series, Jack-O, will also be featured in the update with her distinctive Halloween aesthetic and wild, unstable personality! Another interesting feature about Jack-O is the inclusion of minions whom she can summon and their roles change depending on your button input.
