People have been expecting this for a while now, but it’s finally been announced: Sin Kiske will be the new Guilty Gear Xrd character available in the console release! Famitsu has two online articles about the announcement with some nice screenshots, and also has a page about it in this month’s issue. Shoutouts to Kurushii for providing the magazine scan.

This month’s issue of Arcadia has a two page article on the Arc Revolution Cup, which has started since 3 weeks ago. Top Faust player Kiisha was interviewed for the GGXrd portion, which you can view here. You may remember him as the winner of last year’s Arc Revo Cup for Guilty Gear XX AC+R. Credit again goes to Kurushii for providing the magazine scan. He was also asked for his opinion on Xrd’s tier list, and I have translated it below:
Kiisha’s GGXrd tier list
S Sol Zato Faust Ramlethal
S- Chipp Millia
A Ky May Axl Slayer
B Bedman I-No Venom
C Potemkin

Anime Expo 2014 will be taking place this entire fourth of July weekend, and Aksys has announced that Guilty Gear Xrd will be available to play in the dealer’s hall at their booth! So, if you’re an AX regular or happen to be in the Los Angeles area, this is a good opportunity to give the game a try before its console release.
