ANIME FIGHTERS UNITE! GUILTY GEAR XRD -SIGN- AND MORE!


Some might remember the first time they saw Guilty Gear in action. For us, it was seeing our friends play an imported copy on the PSone; the frantic pace and fluidity with stunning 2d anime sprites just killed it.

From that moment onwards, anime fighters have become a staple in our growing collection of games, and in the case of Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, it looks like we're gonna have another addition to this collection!


GUILTY GEAR XRD -SIGN- ギルティギア イグザード (LIMITED EDITION/FAMITSU DX PACK)

PlayStation 4 PlayStation 3 [2D Fighting] RELEASE: JPN/ASIA - 12/04/2014 US - 12/16/2014

If you haven't seen the trailer yet, then we highly recommend you do so; one must see Arc System Works' newest opus in action in order to appreciate how truly beautiful this series has become. 

Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-  is the fifth installment of the frenetically paced Guilty Gear series, and while keeping in line with the series' signature 2D anime style artwork, cel shaded graphics have now replaced the traditional hand drawn sprites resulting in what some call playable animation. The end product is a fluid and brilliant visual experience, with dynamic camera movement where characters burst to life on screen in tandem with frenzied particle effects from a multitude of special moves and fighting mechanics.

Playable characters total at 16 at this moment; fans will immediately recognize Sol Badguy, Ky Kiske, Millia Rage, May, Chipp Zanuff, Potemkin, Venom, Axl Low, I-No, Faust, Slayer, and Zato-1. As well, Sin from Overture and Elphelt - a new character to the series, as well as boss character Ramlethal Valentine join the roster of playable characters!

The biggest announcement for Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- is that one will never lack an opponent online; Arc System Works has made it a priority for both releases to be cross-platform; players on both the PS3 and PS4 can instakill each other without feeling guilty~

For the Limited Editions, all versions will come with the specialized controller "Fighter's Pad GGXrd Custom." For the Famitsu DX Pack, included is one A2 Size Special Wall Scroll, one Clear Poster, and a special Character Weapon Charm Strap!
