Set to hit PC, PS3, PS4 and arcades this year, Arc System Works’ Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator 2 recently received a spot on Famitsu. The publication detailed additional information regarding the newly announced characters Answer and Baiken and their moves.
The latest preview featured in Famitsu covers the most recent characters to be added in Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator 2, namely Answer and Baiken. The two characters also received screenshot over on the publication site that you can see here.
First up is Answer. Voiced by Tomokazu Seki, he stands as Chipp Zanuff’s aide and developed memory powers that enable him to become the Human Database.
Self-taught in ninjutsu, Answer specializes in high-speed attacks that involve strategic placement of business cards, which are coupled with moves that warp him around the stage and a charge attack after holding on to a scroll.
Players taking control of Answer will find a special move called Intellininpou: Ringi no Sho that sets a scroll in mid-air. After holding onto the scroll, players can follow up with other special moves.
Looking over to Intellininpou: Musha Sabi the move can be used by players after Ringi no Sho. This changes the attack making it become a charge attack. Players can also move from a Ringi no Sho to a Ringi no Sho.
Next up is the strong-minded samurai of Japanese descent who contains a hidden weapon where her right arm should be. Baiken, voiced by Mayumi Asano, appeared in previous titles with her “Offensive and Defensive Unity” which is present in Rev 2. Wielding a new technique called “Azami” where she takes a stance to stop the blow of the opponent’s attack, she can make use of different attacks derived from this technique for a renewed battle style.
Although the move Azami requires perfect timing, another move returning from past titles comes Tatami Gaeshi. A projectile attack that shoots up a powerful tatami mat from the ground is noted to be a good move to use from the air, and is useful when fighting mid-distance.
Lastly, Arc System Works will be holding a location test for the game starting January 20th, which will end on the 22nd in Tokyo at Sega Akihabara Building No. 1 and in Osaka at High Tech Land Sega Nishinakajima.
