It’s that exciting time again for Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 players. The latest patch just hit arcades in Japan, which means that fans around the world are rifling with anticipation for match footage and discovery of the changes in action. The REV 2 2.1 patch, which applies the same changes as we saw in the loketest patch notes, changes quite a few things for the majority of the cast.

You can find plenty of famous Mikado players in the four-hour clip below. Nage’s Faust and Ain’s Ky battle around the 1:58:00 mark, so make sure to catch some of the new Faust changes, which include more flower power than ever before. FAB’s Potemkin also joins in, and later on, Kedako’s May makes an entrance around the 3:12:00 mark. You can also spot a new corner combo from Chipp at 1:53:00 or so — which takes him out of the corner, but it doesn’t mean he’s out of options. Raven’s changes are also quite exciting, as he has many new combo possibilities and some tuning to his mechanic.

Note that the YouTube clip is the last four hours of the Twitch stream, so if you want more footage, just check out the Twitch archive below this YouTube embed. Among others, you can see Baiken and Johnny in action around the 9:00:00 mark.
