The Leader of the Jellyfish Pirates returns in playable form.
Just in today- Arc System Works announced an arcade upgrade to their popular anime-esque fighter, Guilty Gear Xrd Signs. Entitled Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator, this maybe-sequel will add various things, including balance changes, a new ‘Stylish Mode’ of easy gameplay and, best of all, New Characters!
The first new character is Johnny, the popular captain of the Jellyfish Pirates of whom May is a part of. He did figure quite prominently in the Story Mode, so his absence was kinda odd in the first place. Anyways, I’m sure his fans will be celebrating.
But even more intriguing is a totally new(?) challenger who has so far only been shown via a silhouette of her artwork below. And yes, I assume this new fighter is female, or a very radical redesign of Bridget.
Who is THIS?!
Looking at the profile, she has coiffed hair pretty much like Lili Rochefort’s, but her overall image seems to bring to mind Kula Diamond. Not sure what’s up with her hand- are those straps? Is she wearing a kind of straitjacket? What is that thing floating over her head, some sort of halo?
She lacks the rabbit-ears that would mark her as a Valentine; if she isn’t a redesigned returnee, perhaps she is the revealed behind-the-scenes manipulator in Story Mode…?
Anyways, Revelator will see arcade test runs in Japan this early June. I am hoping for more characters to be added, and a console upgrade release eventually. I love Xrd, so I’ll be keeping an eye on this one.
