Rejoice, Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 fans! Earlier this year, Arc System Works announced a 2.1 patch for REV 2. The company hasn’t given a specific release date, stating that it will arrive on consumer devices sometime in March. Well, it turns out that “sometime in March” equals “as soon as March begins –” that is, March 1st.

The Japanese ASW portal site announced the specifics of the patch, which is coming to the PlayStation 3 and 4 versions of the game (the Steam patch will come at a later date). While there are some changes to various modes in the game, the most exciting are the balance updates to combat. The community has already translated the 2.1 patch notes into English, which we have seen in action in a loketest.

However, we aren’t sure whether this patch will apply to European and American versions of the game. We’ll update the story should ASW US or Aksys Games confirm on the matter.

Additionally, make sure to check out REV 2 2.1 version Mikado matches and a video round-up of impressions.
