Aksys Teases Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 Announcement for the West

Aksys teases the western release of the newest 2d fighter in the Guilty Gear series, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2.

January 25, 2017

Aksys posted to their official Twitter today details about the Arc System Works 2d fighter Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC in Japan this Spring.

Following the reveal that the game will be featured during the main event of Evo 2017, Aksys plans to make a “formal announcement on GG REV 2 in the coming weeks”. I think it’s safe to assume that the game will be making it’s way to the west at some point. However, it’s not clear if the game will get a world wide release this Spring along with Japan.

Earlier this month, the developer revealed the game for Japan at a ‘low cost’. Rev 2 includes additional content to the Xrd story mode as well as online challenges. Additionally, the game will be released physically for Japan on the PlayStation 4. At this time, there’s no word if the west will get this same treatment.


We’ll keep an eye out for any further announcements moving forward.
