Any Arc System Works fan or anime fighter fan in general is sure to know about the Arc Revolution Cup. This annual tournament in Japan is the home of all things Arc, and this time we’re sending some European players to compete in Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator!
Nth Gen Interactive are organising the first qualifier in London this weekend to see who will be good enough to represent us in the big one in Japan. Details are below you can sign up until about an hour before the event so there’s no excuse to not try to win a trip to Japan! We’re sponsoring the event too, so be sure to come and say hi even if you’re just there for pleasure ^-^

Who doesn’t want a piece of that? An all-expenses paid trip to Japan to represent Europe is a pretty incredible opportunity. Japan is truly the big leagues when it comes to the fighting game scene, and we can only hope whosoever receives the honour of competing against the Japanese players will give them a run for their money! I’ve played against some of the guys at Arc in the past, and let me tell you they really know their stuff (though I am admittedly pretty terrible).
So get down to London on Saturday if you think you have what it takes! We’ve worked with NGI a bunch before and they always put on a good show. It’s a great location too, and we’re looking forward to a day of perusing some of the finest Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator players out there and feeling thoroughly rubbish ourselves! See you there!
