As a part of the Tokyo Game Show festivities, developer Arc System Works has released a new trailer for their next fighting game to come to consoles, Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-. The trailer here goes through a little more on the plot, and also shows players a brief glimpse of the console-exclusive fighters Sin Kiske (Son of longtime series veteran Ky Kiske who fights with a war flag) and Elphelt (a brand new character who fights with guns despite wearing a dress with roses on it). Guilty Gear series fans can also quickly spot the return of Dr. Paradigm in a cutscene, a character who, like Sin, also debuted in Guilty Gear 2: Overture. While the japanese release date is set for December 4th, the US release of Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- is still set for this holiday season. The trailer can be viewed below. It is in Japanese, but the subtitle option on the youtube video player will allow use of English subtitles.
In addition, Aksys Games (the US publisher for Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- ) has recently announced the contents of the American release’s Limited Edition. This Limited Edition will be available for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 releases, and can be pre-ordered now. The Limited Edition comes with the game’s rock-based soundtrack by series creator Daisuke Ishiwatari, an art book focusing on many characters from the series over previous installments, a keychain based on Sol Badguy’s “FREE” belt buckle, and a special outer box with a design inspired by “the Backyard” which according to Aksys is “…complete with gears and high-quality binding. Dare to open the book to uncover all the goodies!” The PS4 version of Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-‘s Limited Edition will sell for $79.99, while the PS3 version will be $69.99.
