If you’re a fan of Arc System Works games (or you’re curious to learn more about them), Arc Revolution Cup is a must-watch event. The event is part of Toushinsai, hosted by Taito, and includes the major ASW titles, namely Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2, BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Under Night In-Birth:Exe Late[st], and Persona 4 Arena: Ultimax.

While so far there isn’t much revealed, we know the date of the event: October 21st, later this year. Other titles included in the cup are: The King of Fighters XIV, Tekken 7, Pokkén Tournament, and more. Area preliminaries will start next month, in July. Last year, European publisher PQube sponsored qualifying events to the Arc Revolution Cup, so some sort of international support is likely this year again.

Stay tuned to SRK as we find out more about the event in the coming weeks.
