Some more details on the Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- preorder have popped up! You may remember the Aksys announcement that those who pre-order the PS4 version will get to play the demo on April 5th. Well it turns out that Japanese preorders will also get access to this exact same demo! The difference is that the Japanese version will be available on April 1st, so if you really cannot wait those 4 days to try out Revelator, I would recommend going this route.

Since this is going to be the first opportunity for people outside Japan to play Revelator, I thought I would include some useful videos for anyone who wants to pick up the new characters. First up, I have finally updated the Notable Japanese Players page for Revelator so it now includes the 3 new characters along with the strong players who have shown up recently. If you are interested in playing Jack-O or Johnny, you are in luck! These two characters are very popular and quite strong, so there is no shortage of videos. mike and Karinchu are the two players who show up the most and it should be very easy to find match videos of them on Youtube. I would also recommend watching the Mikado Tenkaichi Budokai series, which featured several FT10 sets with these two players against the other Mikado top dogs.

For more Jack-O, I would also recommend watching Purepure’s excellent performance in the Sega APM D-1 Fighting Festival event.

Unfortunately people who want to pick up Jam are going to have a harder time. Videos of her are quite rare. I think the best one right now features Jajamaru playing against several players including Isamu Venom. There is also a long set of LOX playing against Samitto. He does poorly at first, but eventually adapts and goes even.
