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.
