Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 Coming to North America in 2017

Don't worry, you'll be able to play Baiken in the US.

Aksys Games and Arc System Works announced today that Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 will be coming to North America on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. This is the latest update to Arc System Works' other fighting series, following the release of Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- in June of last year. REV2 will be available standalone with a physical and digital edition on PlayStation 4, with a digital upgrade on PS4 and PS3.

REV2 only adds two characters, versus Revelator's six new challengers. The first is returning Guilty Gear mainstay Baiken, who was a hidden character all the way back in the first game. The second character is Answer, Chipp Zanuff's personal assistant. Answer made his debut in the first Guilty Gear Xrd, but he pops up here as a playable character. Together, they bring the Guilty Gear Xrd roster up to 25 total fighters.

In addition, Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 has new stages, an expanded story mode, and a complete rebalancing of all available fighters.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
