The lights are on
Guilty Gear has been delivering solid, 2D fighting with an anime aesthetic since the original game hit the PlayStation all the way back in 1998. Now, nearly twenty years later, the latest iteration in the long-running one-on-one fighter has a release date on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
The amusingly-titled Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2 hits physical and digital shelves on May 26. This updated version of 2014's Xrd: Revelator will be available as a stand-alone purchase for $39.99, or as a digital upgrade to the original Revelator for $19.99. Rev 2 includes the original's previously-released DLC and adds new moves, stages, and characters, as well as expanded Arcade and Story modes. The whole game has been rebalanced from the bottom up, and is sure to provide a whole new experience for hardcore fans of the franchise.

The actual release date is sooner than I expected, between this upcoming release and Tekken 7, I'm going to be a very happy fighting game fan.
Didn't think we'd get the actual game until June. Can't wait to start trying out Answer.
I was hoping the upgrade would be $14.99 (what I paid for Revelator), ah well. I'll probably pick this up in any case. Glad Dizzy and Kum are included, I was a little worried I'd still have to buy them separately after the update.
Its not coming out on pc at the same time? That's disappointing.
Arrrgh! Is it coming to Steam at least?
No matter how much people love and respect Guily Gear, they just never give up the time to learn and master it. That's including me.
