Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- is an upcoming title in development announced at the 2013 Arc System Works Festival. It is the first Guilty Gear fighting game that uses cel-shaded 3D animations instead of sprites; as such, the characters undergo some changes in design. Daisuke Ishiwatari confirmed that the characters, effects, and backgrounds are all rendered in full 3D. The game is built on the Unreal 3 Engine and runs on Sega's RingEdge 2 Multi (ALL Net P-ras MULTI) arcade hardware.[1] The game is set for a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 release in December 4th in Japan, while a US release is set for December 16th.

Story

Prologue

In the year 1999, mankind completed the scientific theory of limitless energy, dubbed magic. However, man did not discard his ignorance upon obtaining this wisdom. The very magic meant to usher in world peace was instead leveraged as a tool of war, and in time the forbidden biological weapons known as Gears were created. As if to condemn these thoughtless deeds, the Gears developed a will of their own and turned their fangs upon humanity.

The Crusades, a centuries-long struggle for survival against the Gears, finally ended when mankind sealed away the Destroyer, Justice. Though man emerged victorious, many threats yet loom large in the shadows of that hard-fought peace, threatening to engulf the world.

And so mankind must continue to atone for the sin of magic.

Main Story

October 21, 2187 at 12:12

A young woman identifying herself as Ramletherl Valentine declares war upon the entire world and all its inhabitants.

There was not a single individual, organization, or country that took this as a laughing matter. This was on account of the prior Baptism 13 Incident, during which the United Kingdoms of Illyria were invaded, for the herald of that onslaught had also referred to herself as Valentine.

Now, in order to ascertain the truth of these events, the world takes action.

Trivia

  • Most Guilty Gear entries use variations of theme songs established in Guilty Gear X for characters; X itself is an exception by introducing new themes for some characters over Guilty Gear. Isuka is a major exception with completely new themes, and Xrd is similar to it with new theme songs for nearly all returning characters.
