Earlier tonight, Arc System Works released details for their next Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- console patch. While not the massive update that adjusted gameplay in arcades, ver.1.04 fixes a variety of bugs present in the console version and adds a few improvements to the game’s cross-play and online modes.

According to the news, balance changes will arrive on consoles later this year along with support for Arc System Work’s tournament app. The developers have also worked out a way to correct issues the PlayStation 4 version has with searching for ranked matches, but are unsure if it will be ready in time.

You’ll find a full breakdown of the patch’s details below, courtesy of Dustloop’s Sourenga. Fans should expect this to arrive sometime in March.
