After a series of announcements regarding location tests and a Japanese release date, earlier this morning the American publisher, Aksys Games, confirmed the release date of Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2.

In a somewhat unprecedented move for developer Arc System Works, the game will have a practically simultaneous global release, unusual for their fighting games. Alongside the Japanese release date which is May 25th, Aksys Games confirms the US release date as May 26th. The company linked an Amazon listing that allows pre-purchasing Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 for $39.99.

That’s the price for a stand-alone PlayStation 4 copy. REV 2 will also be available as a digital upgrade for PS3/PS4/Steam users for less, though a pricepoint isn’t confirmed yet.

There’s no word on the PC version of the game currently, as Aksys Games doesn’t handle the port.

Currently, there’s a third and final location test ongoing for REV 2. For more REV 2 information, read up on our breakdown of gameplay modes in Guilty Gear.
