ARCREVO Japan Kicks Off In Tokyo!on November 23, 2018 by Reuben Mount
With there being a few competitive fighting game players in the office, we understandably get a little over-excited around tournaments. So, we’ve been following the ARCREVO WORLD TOUR closely, even attending Revolution 2018 in London, where the winners were taken by PQube to Japan to participate in the ARCREVO Japan tournament. A tournament, just as it happens, is going on right now and for the whole weekend!
Taking place in the TOC GOTANDA MESSE convention centre in Tokyo, ARCREVO Japan will see tournaments in BLAZBLUE Centralfiction, Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2, and BLAZBLUE Cross Tag Battle, with the winners of each winning a cash prize, trophy, medal and invitation to ARCREVO America 2019! As well as this, there will be other titles available on free play booths including: SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy, DEAD OR ALIVE 6, FIGHTING EX LAYER, and Kill la Kill the Game – IF.
The tournament is ongoing right now with BLAZBLUE Cross Tag Battle Pools on the official Japanese stream, with the BLAZBLUE Centralfiction and Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 Pools viewable in their archives. If you are more interested in the Finals of each title, and the side tournaments, there will be not only a Japanese stream on November 24th, but an English stream too with DSMoove and Guymam on commentary.
The stream schedule for the Finals is officially listed as:
9:30 JPN/00:30 GMT – BLAZBLUE Centralfiction Finals
13:00 JPN/04:00 GMT – Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 Finals
16:00 JPN/07:00 GMT – Kill la Kill the Game – IF Finals

17:00 JPN/08:00 GMT – BLAZBLUE Cross Tag Battle Finals

We have been watching some of the matches, and the Japanese players of these games never cease to impress. Enough about us though, will you be watching any of the tournaments either live or through archives? Do you play any of the games currently being played?
