Gamespot reports that ArcFes will play home to the Guilty GearXBlazBlue Music Live orchestral concert, and the Arc Revolution Cup tournament finals, which includes BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, Persona 4: Arena and Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R on the fight roster.

On May 18 the final qualifiers for the ArcFes showdown will take place at the Leisure Land Akihabara arcade in Tokyo. We’ll have more once the bout takes place.

    I wouldn’t give my right arm…I do want to play after all, but I wish I could be there so badly. Last time I played an Arc Sys game at a large event was Big Apple Anime Fest in New York and even that was amazing. I’m sure the event in Tokyo is going to be the greatest ever. Once BlazBlue concludes, I hope they revisit the GG universe!
