Ky Kiske and Dizzy's son joins the battle.

Sin Kiske

Ky Kiske and Dizzy’s son, Sin Kiske, will be playable in Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, this week’s Famitsu reveals.

Sin is voiced by Issei Miyazaki. He has a parameter called “Full Stomach,” which decreases each time you use a special move. If you use up all of your Full Stomach by performing special moves, you’ll need to recharge it by eating during battle.

Thanks, Games Talk.

    fucking called it

    • Djkarl Pierre

      you deserve a cookie then.

    Pretty obvious.

  • Elle

    Dizzy son but no Dizzy.

    Don’t make me buy XXrd or dlc to play her Arc >_>

    • ArmoredBoar

      She won’t be playable anytime soon, what with her being the closest thing to dead in the series, which is being sealed away in whatever way possible.
      I-No only got unsealed because of plot convenience. hue

      • Mc-kun

        Closer than:

        *SPOILER*

        Zato or Johnny? Zato is STILL alive despite being dead for how many games?

        *END SPOILER

        • ArmoredBoar

          Zato and Millia beef matters more than a heavily neutralized Dizzy. Especially since now it’s actually Zato himself and not Eddie. Also that ain’t no spoiler.
          The real spoiler is how he was brought back, which is vaguely, barely explained in the arcade story. That’s where the console port comes in, assumedly.

          Whereas Dizzy’s just trapped and rendered virtually useless, with nothing going for her besides her background.

          • ZenTzen

            which is still a very important deal for the general story of the game

            • ArmoredBoar

              Not really when that means her part of the story is already dealt with.

              • JokerFace

                Zato/Eddie was brought back by the senate with a medicine that Doctor.Baldhead (AKA Faust) made in like the first GG game i believe or at some point in the series. Sol and Sin also killed someone in the senate already too so ya both behind.

  • Hatsuaki

    Well, who wasn’t expecting that haha
    his battle style sounds interesting though.

  • ivanchu77

    Expected, it was the only character with the model already done after all.

    i guess they plan to sell the popular characters like Dizzy or Baiken with DLC

    • JokerFace

      Bridget and Zappa are more popular than Baiken, if anything those are the 2 DLC characters. After them it’s her johnny and jam

  • Digidyne017

    Wheres my Jam?

  • Pdugna

    Hmm soo this is real?

  • Jezzy

    God dammit.

  • Six

    Pretty sure everyone saw this coming.

  • z_merquise

    I still wonder why Ky named his child ‘Sin’. I guess banging a 3 year old doesn’t really sound right.

    • Mc-kun

      Ky is a religious person so sleeping with an unmarried woman is a big deal when you’re Christian. It doesn’t help that his son was born from an egg. Ky went through a lot of self angst over this if you read his side story pre Overture. Ironically his son cared about him when he was younger and then didn’t give two cents about him when he got older.

      • z_merquise

        That’s interesting. Haven’t played GG Overture so I don’t know how Sin and Ky interact.

        Still, I’m bothered with the name. I guess “Shin” would still make sense since it’s a typical name for a Japanese person but not Sin.

        • Mc-kun

          Also it doesn’t help that Sin’s name is from a song or a band. Shin means true in Japanese but as far as I know its not related to any rock song. Don’t feel bad I think its weird that Ky being Ky named his son Sin considering how much he cares about the kid but it might be his complex showing (My son is a sin because I had him out of wedlock.)

          • http://shinsua.tumblr.com/ Shinsua

            Don’t mean to be an ass, but “wedlock.” When I read “wetlock” I giggled a bit. Heh.

            • Mc-kun

              tl;dft or too lazy didn’t fix typos because I had to go to the bank. Fixed now.

              • JokerFace

                Wasn’t he named sin not for the fact that he slept with a girl before marriage but because he slept with a gear which is looked down upon way more? The wedlock thing just seems beyond stupid. Comon remember the timeline, Ky isn’t THAT fkin holy, dude just likes justice

                • Mc-kun

                  He is actually if you read his bio. He had major connections with the church when he worked for Holy Orders. Also it was stated in the GG Overture notes that Ky had many issues. One of them is that his union with Dizzy isn’t recognized by either the state nor the church itself (due to her being a gear among other things.) Despite this Dizzy is considered his wife. Also Sin was born from an egg. If your kid was born from an egg well you would be kind of off put too. There’s more but that would explain why Sin is named Sin and why Ky pretty much dumped him to Sol who tried to kill him. I’m guessing that Dizzy, his pillar at the time, was sealed off. Although I’m not 100% sure.

    Always thought he’d be DLC. Guess I wounder whose gonna be the DLC character. My only wish is that Baiken gets in. MAKE IT HAPPEN! I NEED MY BAIKEN!

  • Hentailover

    And nobody is surprised. People called it months ago.

    Buuut I still want my Baiken and Bridget.

    • Bobby Jennings

      Damn Laskal you’re here too?

      • Hentailover

        Hentailover is my primary nickname, so no need to use that one.

        • Bobby Jennings

          I was kidding :(

    • Guy Incognito

      Something tells me that Bridget has hit puberty at this point.

      • Hentailover

        So did May… doesn’t look significantly different though ))

        • Guy Incognito

          May filled out a bit, she looks taller has boobie buds, I’m gonna shut up now because explaining this is making me feel like Chris Hansen is going to pop out of nowhere and tell me to have a seat over there.

  • Mc-kun

    What I want to know is why does him and Ky have the same eyepatch? From the early artwork Sin had it since he was a child so uhhhhh…..

    • Samsara09

      Ky is Sin’s father.Maybe they designed it as hint in Sin’s debut game,some 6-7 years ago…or perhaps just they found it good.

      • Mc-kun

        There’s implications that the eye patch might mean something but it hasn’t been revealed yet. I just find it interesting since well he had it since he was a kid and they never explained it, like Ky’s hope belt or Sol’s headband. I mean it can’t just be a fashion statement relating to Ky being his dad right?

  • Aiddon

    ooookay, putting eating into fighting mechanics is new.

    • Guy Incognito

      Can’t say Guilty Gear isn’t original.

  • shogunknight

    Still cant believe this dude is a product of ky kiske and dizzy. Baffles me all the time……dizzy….and ky, DIZZY?

    • Mc-kun

      Were you one of those fans who thought that Ky would end up with Jam or….Sol? Or Dizzy would end up with Testy?

      • shogunknight

        Nah, none of those fans. I was just shocked when i found out. Maybe the way i saw her behaviour in the games influenced the shock. I didnt read into the story a lot though until recently

        • Mc-kun

          Yeah I’ve played the games since GG1 and to be honest it was both amusing and unexpected myself but the more I thought about it the more it made sense. They do have similar personalities (Dizzy hates fighting and Ky hates fighting unless its justice) and strong beliefs. I know a majority of fans are bitter because they wanted Ky to either be gay, with Jam, or with nobody. Or Dizzy with Johnny or Testy.

          • shogunknight

            Wow, i never knew people were that serious about ky. Which even reminds me, they havent revealed jam yet in gg:xrd. I hope they bring her soon, well her and a lot others

        • Djkarl Pierre

          Dizzy is Sol’s Daughter so theirs need for SolxKy shipping

  • tokyobassist

    As expected, this fairy is playable. What I didn’t expect was this guy’s gimmick overlapping with ABA’s. SCREW YOU SIN!

    • Weaponsgradenothin

      Dude, have you ever actually USED ABA? This mechanic, if anything, overlaps with HOS, who nobody wants anyways. But really, I can’t be that surprised that this comments section is nothing but people whining that it isn’t Jam, Baiken, or Bridget…

      • tokyobassist

        She’s my favorite character to play. I’m not some EVO grade player but I know how to play her. Still trying to get used to the changes in AC+R since she’s received drastic changes.

        As long as Sin’s inclusion doesn’t stop other fan favorites from getting in, I could careless. Full Stomach just sounds very reminiscent to the blood packets to activate Moroha but it does sound very similar to HOS so fair enough. I get where you’re coming from.

        Then again it’s easy to tell everybody else to shut up and quit bitching when you have your main in the game.

  • Lara Croft

    I can’t wait to play this on my PS4 :)

  • MrKappa

    GG has always had a pretty bad story and this guy is another clear example of it. Ky and Dizzy ending up together was laughable.

    Either way I don’t care for this guy and I already suspected he would be playable. They need to hurry up and announce some veterans.

  • LordKaiser

    How the hell Ky managed to have sex with Dizzy!? This was in the XX Core timeline?

    • Guy Incognito

      Cuz Ky is all kinds of Bish hot and Dizzy is all kinds of anime jail bait

      I don’t know don’t try to over think Guilty Gear’s story.

  • ZenTzen

    awesome, cant wait to beat people up with a flag

  • PrinceHeir

    More Accent Core Plus R characters please!!

  • MrKappa

    You made it seem like everyone here was clamoring for Jam when like one person asked for her and one other mentioned her.
    You must really hate her or something seeing how you are all twisted up over this.

  • Weaponsgradenothin

    Thing is, this has been going on since Bedman was announced, annd flared up again when Ramlethal got patched in. It gets old.
