Today at TGS – Arc Systems have announced two new characters playable in Guilty Gear Xrd Sign.

The new characters are Sin Kiske and Elphelt.

Sin Kiske:


Sin Kiske uses his pole/stick to hit his enemies which has a long range.  He also has a special feature which involves infinite combo as long as his hunger meter is full.  That’s right – Hunger meter; when his meter is full, the player is able to continuously combo his opponent without any breaks unless they drop the combo.  However be warned that if his hunger meter is empty, you will be temporarily stunned.  To addition to this, you need to fill up the meter again by using a specific move to eat some meat.  This will fill up the bar by 3/4 roughly.

This is a risk to pay however I believe the risk is well worth it.  Arc System has kindly provided the move set for Sin to us.

*Note*  – The moveset is in Japanese.  No official moveset list in english has been provided.

Elphelt uses a mixture of melee and arsenal weapons for her combo.  In close combat she will use melee attacks such as kicks/punches however if used with her arsenal weapons it can be a deadly combo.  Her arsenal of weapons range from pistol, rifle and shotgun.  The pistol is used for close combat combos, shotgun for mid range and rifle for long range.  When using the rifle. the player is able to control and aim where to shoot on the screen.

Below is her moveset which has been provided by Arc System.  *Note*  This is also in Japanese only

Arc System has revealed that these characters are available for purchase on the PSN store on day 1.  Sin will cost 250 yen however this character is unlockable via game so it is recommended to unlock it manually than buying in my opinion.  Elphelt is available for all people who purchase the game on launch on the first copy release.  If players miss this opportunity, she is available on the PSN store for 800 yen.

During TGS we managed to try out the new two characters with some help from the assistant workers. We also noticed a special arcade stick which was available to use at the event however no news has been provided if the plan to release this stick.  The stick has Guilty Gear theme on it with a specific PS4/PS3 adapter functionality, This allows you to switch modes to make it useable on either console.



There is currently no info about if or when the Arcade sticks will be available, but they seem to be similar to the Killer Instinct and Ultra Street Fighter 4 Sticks from Madcatz.
