Source: http://via.me/-ca2vmkk -- Title is in Japanese, third from the top of the last section. The game will be part of the Nesica system, similar to Blazblue, etc.

Miscellaneous note: Guilty Gear Xrd will be using Sega's ALL.NET service, but that's not surprising since the game is published by Sega.

Even if it's not, it should be trivial to update since it's on a modern Windows-based platform like the Type X.

You've done warmed my heart. :')

Really excited to hear about this, in any case. Hopefully it'll take off in arcades as well (or even better) as it apparently did digitally in Japan.

That's fine, because Japan's really the only market where Arcades still work.

Arcades still do well in highly populated areas, even in the US. Even where arcades don't exist for legal reasons, cybercafes fill in the gap as a place for gaming.

Hmm: AE, Blazblue CS2, Melty Blood AA, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, SC3, etc for the "new" stuff.

For arcade operators, Nesica lets them hold multiple games in a single cabinet. Customers can just press a button to switch games. The Nesica IC card stores data for all supported titles too.

As much as I'd love that trio, funds would very likely go towards Umbrella and Marie rather than Annie and Feng because of canon story reasons.

I know, just saying whatever helps is appreciated. That and Lab Zero deserves the accomplishment.

Maybe we'll see Skullgirls at the next GodsGarden event? SBO?

Is absolutely impossible to see any NESiCA game outside Japan: It's a network system who works ONLY in Japan and you cannot buy the cabinet/PCB, Taito uses a monthy rent system and 30% of every credit is for Taito.

Huge congrats. This is really big news.

Will you be waiting for the 5 crowd funded characters before releasing this or will they be updated in later like the other versions?

Should be out as soon as possible, and will be receiving the new characters via updates.

Still working a lot of this stuff out - we're not doing the port ourselves, but a Japanese dev is. But I think the magazine image might be a leak? So not sure if I can confirm the developer or not.

I am really happy for you too, but... do you think there is at least a slim possibility to publish the game on Type-X2? it is a real shame that USA Arcade scene and the rest of the world will lost this chance. I am going to become an Arcade owner in two more years and believe me, i will be the first guy in buy a Skullgirls PCB/cabinet if there is a chance.
