New character included with early copies.

Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator

Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator will launch for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan on May 26, the latest issue of Famitsu reveals.

Standard copies of the game will cost 6,800 yen and a limited edition including a a visual fan book will cost 9,800 yen.

Early buyers will receive a product code to download new playable character Kum Haehyun, who is voiced by Hideaki Tezuka. Kum Haehyun is the head of the Kum family, and a descendant of the mind tuners. Although a female, she controls a human-type, macho, middle-aged man. When attacked, the girl in him can inadvertently be seen. She is described as a character with moves that aren’t so troublesome to pull off, which is rare in Guilty Gear. While it doesn’t mean her attacks are slow, her battle style emphasizes power and the weight of each move.

The fighting game, an update to Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign, is also due out in North America in spring 2016. In addition to Kum, it also features new fighters Johnny Sfondi, Jack-O, Jam Kuradoberi, and Dizzy.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou, Famitsu.

  • Blesmi

    Kum eh? Better have a Muk color palette

  • Clousephinat

    When’s Robo-Bridget though?

  • Budgiecat

    “Spring 2016” for NA release? Why not just announce the exact date already since they already got a May 26th Japan release date announced. I mean….first day of Summer is June 20th; just short a month after that release date..first day of Spring is March 20th…not exactly a huge window there since we obviously dont expect it to come out before the Japanese release lol

    • Elle

      It better be may. Isn’t it supposed to be at EVO. or do they care….I’m sure they do.

  • Kaisen


  • Closet_Ninja

    Still no Bridget?

  • James Reilly


  • OldManObelisk

    Hope hes a boxer.

  • comfortablecoffin

    So is she a ghost that controls a guy? Similar to Zappa except it’s just one girl as opposed to a bunch of ghosts?

    Either way, that name is ridiculous.

    • DrForbidden

      Racist much?

  • MrKappa

    It would be nice if they would simply add more male characters in this game and not loop hole stuff like this.

    • 6810

      yeah, cos Murca! Soldiers! MMA bros! Wrasslers! Karate dudes and ninjas only!

    • Monkey88

      Yeah because the male to female ratio isn’t big enough *rolls eyes*

    • comfortablecoffin

      Except this game can only improve by adding more females.

      Besides, even when a guy gets included in the game, nobody plays him and instead plays Sol/Ky.

  • Bonn Bo

    Ehhhh, im all for new characters and all, but this one doesn’t interest me in the slightest. STILL WAITING ON ANJI AND BAIKEN DAISUKE.
