While certainly unexpected, Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator will be getting quite the timely release this spring across the European territories.

Revelator will launch on June 10th 2015, 3 days after the North American release date of June 7th.

The teaser trailer for the release has been recently updated to reflect the E.U release...

 

 

 

 

Handling European publishing will be PQube; the same group who handled Blazblue: Chrono Phantasma's Europe release, and the news cannot be more sweet for European fans of the series. 
Initially reported by Rice Digital; Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator will feature 6 new characters (2 left to be revealed), and many eyes are looking to series favorite Dizzy and antagonist Raven
to make their playable debut. The title update will also offer the new "Stylish" mode control scheme - garnered towards beginner players with simplified controls; as well as significantly
upgraded graphics, a revamped online lobby system, as well as an updated continuing story mode.
 
There are tons of high level of Japanese Arcade matches available on various online media platforms, so in the interim until consumer release, be sure to check out our English and Japanese 
databases to view the action before it drops for the home market.  
Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator will be available as a cross-platform play for both the PS3 and PS4 systems.
 
Also, be sure to check out the absolutely stunning hi-res visuals for the upcoming game below in the picture gallery.

Untitled-1.png.afd8ac038395de60e1fed51caAltimor has given us quite a treat: a hitbox viewer for PC Xrd!

You can follow the latest updates on the project in the thread linked below. I've tried it and you can see the results on the left, showing the hitbox on Sol's j.K.

 

 

 

 

Keep in mind that development is ongoing and there are bugs, most notably, projectiles and throws do not show hitboxes. Regardless, this is great to see! Thank Altimor when you get the chance!

Act 2 of BlazBlue Central Fiction is scheduled for a January 28th release. As you can see from the updated opening, series antagonist Izanami is hinted to be the new final boss of this arc.

Apart from the additional story content, the Act 2 update also includes numerous additions such as the ability to select a "VS CPU" character in Arcade and Sparring, a brand new game mode called "Speed Star", a new course for Score Attack and a number of added features in Sparring.

BlazBlue Central Fiction's second act is scheduled for a Late January release and with it comes various gameplay additions including the new "Speed Star Mode". It does not include any balance changes.

In Act 2, Nightmare Memory, the characters are gradually becoming aware of the "out of place feeling" of the world. Just what is the source of the unending tragedy's repetition? A shocking truth will become known.
In Speed Star Mode, the player must defeat random enemies within a time limit. The player character is "invincible", they do not take damage when they are hit with attacks, but when the time reaches zero it's game over. Time can be extended by performing various feats such as activating Overdrive, entering Active Flow or doing 3000 damage in a combo. There is a chance for encountering a "bonus character" that will give higher amounts of additional time when performing such actions.
Another new feature is the ability to select a "VS COM" character in Arcade Mode and Sparring Mode. Using this feature, a player could be playing with Nine in Sparring Mode but can fight off against any challengers using Ragna. The VS COM character can be changed on the Arcade Mode Act selection screen or the Sparring Mode selection screen by pressing the Start button. You can not change the "VS Human" character from what was initially selected however.
Score Attack Mode's "Course D" will be unlocked and Sparring Mode is receiving a substantial expansion. Among the additions to Sparring are the ability to show command lists (for both the player and the opponent), a restart button and the ability to change the dummy's posing between standing, crouching and jumping.

Arc System Works is releasing Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma Extend, Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late, and Melty Blood: Actress Again Current Code on Steam in the West! This is a big step for ASW, as they have been reluctant to release games on PC in the past.

First up is Xrd -SIGN-, coming on on December 9 for $30 USD. They're even having a special offer where if you buy the game in the first month, they'll throw in all the DLC (characters, colors, system voices) for free.

ASW Announcement: http://arcsystemworksu.com/arc-system-works-releasing-5-titles-on-steam-by-summer-2016/

Afterwards, they'll be releasing BBCPE in February, then UNIEL and MBAACC in "Spring 2016"! ASW haven't mentioned any prices or special extras for these games, but stay tuned!

Famitsu published an article that features Nine, how her spell system works, as well as some sample combos.

http://www.famitsu.com/matome/bbcf/nine.html

For us non-japanese speakers, @greatfernman was kind enough to translate it and has split it into 2 evernotes:

Keep in mind that Nine releases December 3 in japan, so expect a glut of first day impressions very soon!

Japnese video game news site 4gamer published today and article with a round table discussing fighting games including Mr. Kazuto Sekine aka "Pachi (Blazblue series, Guilty Gear series)," Mr. Ryohei Endo (Guilty Gear 2 Overture, Blazblue Chrono Phantasma), Mysterious Masked Man No.1 (P4U Series), along with Atlas' Masked Man No. 2 (Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold), and soft circle French-Bread's Mr. Kamone Serizawa (Under Night In-Birth, Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax).

The article is provided in English and Japanese, English link below.

    • Anyone know where I can get the link for the backgrounds that appear when you use a Distortion, Overdrive Distortion, and Astral finish for Naoto specifically? There are two of the distortion backgrounds I'm looking for the blue and the red one (When in Overdrive). As for Astral's it's a red background with a black transition on the top portion of the screen. I would also like a link for the effects for Naoto's blood drives when he's charging 5D, 2D, or-J-D, etc.   (Left three pictures on the bottom to be more specific with my question.)
    • Are the weeklies at Balance Patch still happening? I crave offline matches. Rather, if there aren't any meetups in Mass these days, anyone wanna start one?
    • It's been nearly three years since anyone posted in here. There's a bit of a resurgence in some +R communities, so I figured I should make a "check-in" post.   I have been actively updating I-No's +R wiki pages for the last several years. On the main page: Overview Section is more robust with detailed explanations of her strengths and weaknesses. Suggested Video section including tutorials/basics and some highlights of what the character can do at high level. Move explanations are more detailed with tips on how to use them effectively. In Progress: Links to images with hitboxes for every frame of I-No's moves (click the notation of the move itself directly above the image to go to one). I have a couple on there like 5P, 6P, 5K. It takes a lot of work to do, so this is slow going. That 5K dodging slidehead is confirmed by the hitbox viewer. On the first frame her hurtbox rises slightly - only really enough to dodge Slidehead and nothing else (I've tested with other moves). Still cool to know about. Combo Page: Haven't touched this very much yet. There's some good carryover stuff that Mynus and some others posted. I'll get around to adding to this eventually, but it's way lower on priority compared to other things since it's already pretty good. Strategy Page: Added some stuff like HCL:E and VCL:E. More details on j.D FDC. I wrote up a big thing about Fastfall j.D last year, but the post got eaten for some reason (I just couldn't post it, and then I couldn't go back to save it). I'll have to rewrite that. It's in the plans. Also planned: Matchup specifics. Other: Thanks to the hitbox viewer and OBS I've been testing some system mechanics and making updates to those parts of the wiki as well. We can confirm that the window to Instant Block is 8 frames wide, and that the window to Slashback is 2 frames. Need to check if the SB window gets bigger on success (since that was a thing for one of the Loketest builds prior to +R's launch), among other things.   Here's hoping the next version of Guilty Gear is awesome. Based on the recent announcement that it's in development, but not far enough along to talk about, along with the "Releases in 2019" thing on ArcSys's booth at EVO this year saying "Kill la Kill" and "???", and the fact that DBFZ is running Unreal 4 whereas Xrd runs Unreal 3, I'm going to guess that the next GG release will be a major overhaul and not just another patch.
