Developer Arc System Works also added a handful of free epilogue chapters. Dubbed “Subsequent stories,” these will be available for all characters, except for Sol, as a free upgrade.
Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is the ideal fighting title for newcomers to the genre thanks to its critically acclaimed Stylish Type control system. This user friendly system was first introduced in the BlazBlue fighting series and allows newcomers to pull off special attacks simply by button mashing; thus eliminating the need to memorize attacks.
The original Guilty Gear Xrd was received positively in 2014, scoring an 84 on Metacritic.
