Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 Coming to the PS3, PS4, and Steam in Japan

on January 14, 2017 9:58 AM

Guilty Gear Xrd is getting a DLC expansion known as Rev 2. This announcement was made by the publisher to cap off the Arc System Works Fighting Game Awards 2016. The additional content will be hitting Japanese arcades this Spring whereas the PS3, PS4 and Steam versions will come sometime later.

Rev 2 will contain some additional content for the Story Mode and online challenges. There also will most likely be rebalancing for the entire game as there will be location tests for the patch from January 20th to 22nd in Tokyo.

There will also be new characters added as shown in the promotional trailer with this announcement. The sharply dressed (and so called Business Man Ninja) Answer will be joining the fight alongside the one eyed, lone samurai herself, Baiken.

No price has been given for Rev 2 but Arc System Works said it would come at a ‘low cost.’ The PS4 version will also be getting a physical release as well. There’s no word yet if this DLC will make it to the West but it’s probably a likely scenario since the series has been popular in North American and European fighting circles.
