More Guilty Gear Xrd means there is still good in this world.

Just over the weekend, we got a new video for Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator, the as-of-yet Arcade-Only Upgrade to Guilty Gear Xrd Sign. It’s actually the arcade version’s Intro or Opening Cinematic, which includes a cutscene between ‘That Man’ and another character (Raven?), then a cool Intro featuring all of the returning cast, the new characters Johnny and Jack-O, and ONE other.

Just revealed right at the end of the video is another addition to the roster- fighting waitress Jam Kuradoberi (yes, she is named Cranberry Jam). Jam will be added into the game sometime after the arcade version’s August 25 release in Japan.

This is pretty much a no-brainer for release on console- though I am wondering if they’ll give it as an actual disc release or an upgrade (perhaps both). I do hope they add more characters for the home editions- three new fighters is nice but could be better.

I can’t wait in particular to see what happens in the next chapter of the Story Mode- it’s pretty cool to see Sol, Sin and Ramlethal all together- no doubt on their way to try and rescue Elphelt (who’s sporting a new look). Here’s to the hope that this awesome brawler arrives on our PS4s and XBox Ones sooner rather than later.

UPDATED! Jack-O: Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator’s New Character!

A Halloween-themed New Challenger?

The all-new character to be added to the upcoming Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator has been revealed. Jack-O, a mysterious female fighter sporting a sleek outfit accentuated by an apparently sentient ball-and-chain as well as a mask, joins the oddball cast of Xrd with the arcade upgrade. She is apparently another associate or ally of ‘That Man’, in the same vein as I-No and Raven.


Jack-O Location Test Footage.

From what I can tell, Jack-O may be short for ‘Jack-O-Lantern’ given the look of her mask and the ball-and-chain attached to her ankle (which may or may not be a familiar, like Ramlethal’s Lucifero). Her attacks are described as ‘comical’, and she looks quite interesting.


Jack-O’s Intro: Cute and creepy?

There has been speculation that there may be room for one more character to be added on the Character Select screen- in Xrd’s case, the more the merrier! I am really hoping this to make the jump to consoles eventually, but for now I’ll settle for checking out vids once the Location Tests start shortly.


Jack-O’s Win Animation. Dat ass.

Judging from the vids so far seen online, Jack-O appears to be mute, or a woman of few words. She does like lollipops, does she? And the camera seems to love her (rather fetching) derriere… Need to see more of this lady, definitely!

Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator?! Johnny Returns!

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.
