Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 to have a third and final location test

By on March 15, 2017 at 11:30 am

The Japanese Arc System Works account dropped an announcement recently regarding Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2. The upcoming revision to Xrd -REVELATOR- will have one more location test. As usual, the aim is to introduce a number of changes to the cast and some system modifications and to have players playtest the new version.

This time, starting from March 16th in Japan, the testing will take an entire week. Taking footage and photos is forbidden, though occasional media has slipped through the cracks. However, we can probably expect a full list of changes–as Arc System Works has provided official patch notes before in Japanese.

According to Tokkan, this will be the last location test for the game.

Additionally, according to BjornSonOfBear, a Korean event called PlayStation Arena will have a playable preview version of REV 2, this weekend.

Stay tuned to SRK as we get our hands on the changes coming to Guilty Gear Xrd. Refer to our location test patch notes translation to find out what happened in the previous one.

REV 2 is on track to release in Japan on May 25th for the PlayStation 3 and 4, as both a stand-alone game and a DLC upgrade for -REVELATOR-.
