The Story So Far...
Mysteries and machinations have come to a head, triggering the latest chapter in the GUILTY GEAR saga. It’s been a week since Ramlethal declared war on all of humanity. Sol and his crew have begun an investigation in order to track down Elphelt, who has been abducted. There is no clue on her whereabouts…
Suddenly, Sol gets an unexpected visit…It’s the very man who created the Gears, Sol’s nemesis, “That Man”, along with one of his lieutenants — Raven. “That Man” seeks help from Sol in order to settle his score with the “Universal Will.”
Who is the “Universal Will”? And who will win in the end…?

- Unlike -SIGN-, there is no English dub present. This is largely due to a lack of time to add one, as the time between the release of the Arcade and Console versions was shorter for -REVELATOR- than it had been for -SIGN-.
- This also affected BlazBlue Central Fiction, the latest of Arc System Works' other successful series, Blazblue. Prior to that game, the series had always been dubbed.
