In the middle of a Twitch stream for Redbull's eSports channel, the Evolution Championship Series (call it EVO if you want to make friends) co-founder Joey Cuellar announced the lineup for this year's event.
Here's what the f...
Heaven or Hell! Let's Rock!
Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator is coming to North America on June 7, Aksys Games says.
Arc System Works previously announced the enhanced fighting game for a May 26 launch across Japan, which means this is about as close to a sim...

[The horizon is bright for fighting games, so I thought I'd have Virtua Kazama take the stage and talk about some of the biggest fighting games coming to 2016 for a new year of salt. But a quickie note, Kazama had a lapse in ...
BlazBlue, UNIEL and more coming later
Update: In a series of tweets sent out by Arc System Works, it has been announced that all DLC for Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- will be free for the first month, including the three DLC characters:
It was also confirmed that the g...

From H2 Interactive
A lot of fighting games have been coming to Steam this past year, including Guilty Gear XX. It seems as if publisher H2 Interactive isn't done with the series yet, as Guilty Gear Xrd has been listed on the Korean Game Ra...
The expansion to Xrd Sign
Guilty Gear Xrd Sign was a damn good fighting game, but the common complaint was that the cast wasn't big enough. That's nothing a premium expansion pack couldn't fix of course!
Aksys Games has announced that Revelator, ...
Remember, remember July 15-17
Surprise, surprise, fighting game tournament EVO is coming back next year. Here's how EVO 2015 wrapped up. It was fun times, even for a casual. A new Street Fighter V character got announced, a guy got up in euphoric victory before his match was over and lost, and they even played Catherine, the surest way into my heart.
EVO returns to Las Vegas with EVO 2016 July 15-17.
As decided by Japanese arcade-goers
Dizzy will soon be joining the cast of Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator, the updated version of last year's Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign, after being selected by Japanese arcade players in a popular vote.
While Dizzy has been playabl...
As luck would have it, Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- literally got an update the day after I left Japan. Version 1.02 is now live in Japanese arcades, and with it, it brings fan favorite Jam, alongside of some overall tweaks.
Coming to Japan spring 2016

The fighting game, which debu...
Japan has been hosting location tests in arcades for months for Guilty Gear Xrd, which includes the newest Revelator updates. Recently, Arc System Works has added in fan favorite Jam Kuradoberi, and there's plenty of of...
Back in July, BlazBlue invaded Phantasy Star Online 2. Now, Guilty Gear Xrd is getting a turn. Costumes for Sol, Ky (both male and female), Millia, May, and Elphelt are available as of the next update, scheduled for...
Japan-only at the moment though
Still miffed that there weren't enough characters in Guilty Gear Xrd? Well, the Revelator update is getting Johnny and Jack-O, but it looks like more might be in the pipeline. Arc System Works is opening up a vote in Septembe...
Heaven or hell? Maybe we'll finally know
Right before the conclusion of the Arc Revolution Cup 2015, Arc System Works decided to drop a bomb on everyone watching the Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- tournament.
The studio announced the follow-up to the current version of...
No info on how to replicate though
Guilty Gear fans know about the shadow and gold variants in the X series, but now they've made their way into Xrd Sign by way of a weird glitch. The original poster of the video has no idea how it happened, bu...
Street Fighter, Marvel, Melee, and more
The final day of Evolution 2015 has concluded, and we are left with a slew of new champions.
There were upsets and heart-breakers, but most importantly hundreds of hours of the highest-level fighting games. Games featured today were Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mortal Kombat X, and Guilty Gear: Xrd -SIGN-.
Best moment of EVO so far?
Today's top story from EVO came from a Guilty Gear Xrd match between Woshige and Ogawa.
After pulling off a comeback victory in the second round, Woshige mistakenly thought he'd won the match in its entirety. He stood up and ...
Face down, ass up
Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator is the totally normal and appropriately named follow up to Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, which Chris loved. Johnny is a series mainstay, but pumpkin faced Jack-O is a newbie and, uh, interesting.
That's definitely the most sexual crouch animation I can remember seeing. She is 2 live.
She looks awesome
Arc System Works is developing a follow-up to Guilty Gear Xrd called Revelator, which will add fan favorite Johnny to the cast. But there's also an additional special mystery character on the way, which is now confirmed as "J...
It works at least
In the past 24 hours I've spent some time with the PC port of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R, and I'm partly pleased with the results in terms of the netcode. Your experience really does differ based on the connection rank...
I really enjoyed Guilty Gear Xrd on PS4. It was smooth, it looked beautiful, and mechanically, it was sound. But people really took issue with the limited cast, and wanted more. Arc System Works is partially addressing t...
Things are going your way right now, Europe. That whole Eurovision thing is going on and you're finally getting Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign, which Chris totally loved when it came out in the US back in December.
Plus, you hav...
Heaven or Hell port?
Guilty Gear fan? You'll get a chance to check out another iteration on Steam come May 26.
Arc System Works has confirmed to Destructoid that Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R will make its way to Steam next week. I...
I still play it
Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- is still going strong, and Arc System Works has a new patch in the works, primarily to improve the netcode. Additionally, cross-platform play will be stabilized, and a few other bugs will be fixed ...
Hope you like Mega Man X5 references
Some people say GG is the best thing in gaming today. Others say it's all flash and no substance, existing to drawing attention to itself and nothing more. No, I'm not talking about that GG. I'm talking about Guilty Gear, th...
Available for $7.99
Before I got worked up about a $7.99 DLC character in Guilt Gear Xrd, I thought about what was already on offer. The console version has a few extra exclusive characters in comparison to the arcade edition, and Elphelt i...
Heaven or Hell, rock again
I've spent many late nights with Guilty Gear. Week-long tournaments, money-matches between friends; it was the perfect series to play around with, and one of my most competitive. But as time went on, the franchise started to ...
Waiting on netcode testing
As of right now, the embargo on Guilty Gear Xrd has lifted -- we can talk about it, and hot damn is there a lot to say. The game is beautiful, extremely crisp, and the gameplay is just as good as it always was. While som...
Of course you do
For some games that have elaborate stories or lots of spoiler points, I tend to avoid any and all coverage if possible. I like going in completely blind, like the bosses of the Souls series for example. For oher titles,...
