Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign

Famitsu this week introduces character joining the PlayStation 4 and PS3 versions of Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign.

Elphelt, voiced by Aya Suzaki, will be available as post-launch downloadable content. She uses a rifle for long distance attacks, and a shotgun for powerful short-range hits. You’ll be able to adjust your alignment and reload as if you were playing a shooting game.

Early buyers of Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign will get Elphelt free. Otherwise, she can be purchased for 800 yen.

If you’re at the Tokyo Game Show later this month, the game will be playable with both Elphelt and Sin Kiske as character options.

Thanks, Games Talk.

    Or just, you know, put it on the disc? And give us an art book pre-order bonus or something?

    • artemisthemp

      OFC she is not on the disc, their have never been a (Capcom) company that have sold DLC, which was already disc (Blanka) :P

      • MyBodyIsReady

        Its a shame theyre goin down this route, the reason I bought Blazblue over MvC3 on Vita was because Blazblue had no BS DLC.

        • DrForbidden

          I don’t understand that. Chronophantasma had day-1 DLC characters too, right?

          • KiQun

            He probably meant CS Extended.

          • Solomon_Kano

            As will Persona 4 Ultimax

      • The Grim Heaper

        That’s a lie.

        • artemisthemp

          What is a lie? That Capcom never sold Blanka DLC even though he was already on the disc?
          True but, I was been ironic

          • The Grim Heaper

            You’re practically saying that ASW is a saint when they’re just as bad, if not worse than Capcom, with on-disc DLC.

            They charge a stupid price for COLORS that are on disc. They charge $8 a character for DLC, and the first one is always out maybe a week after it launches. Usually means it’s on-disc. You’re holding ASW in a higher light even though everyone knows that they’re no better.

  • Digidyne017

    So, the fighting mechanics like Mine from Akame ga Kill and the similar looks of Rachel Alucard? Sold!!

  • Elle

    Ooh a new fighter? Cool.

  • KiQun

    A DLC character already? Feel like they don’t intend to expand initial roster.

  • Sol badass

    I am willing to buy any dlc for this game, but Im sure theres gonna be an xrd sign sequel or something with those characters so Im kinda stuck

  • PrinceHeir

    So when are we getting the old characters from Accent Core Plus R :P

    I’m glad we’re getting new characters and all, but better put all of the old cast first then make new ones!

    • Sion Cruz

      Please don’t turn this into TTT2….

      • PrinceHeir

        Ahh no.

        The only reason Tekken Tag 2 feels unbalanced is due to tag mechanics as well having 4 characters in on battle which changes the tiers significantly.

        There’s only 24 characters total for Accent Core Plus and Xrd is only 15 characters or even lower so far.

        There’s 12 missing characters two of which are variation of the same character(Order Sol, Robo Ky)

        So no, If they managed to balanced all of the same characters from Accent Core Plus R. there’s no reason they can’t do the same for Xrd.

        • Thatguy

          Robo Ky was replaced with Robo Potemkin in Accent Core, though

          Because every Robo Ky was emotionally unstable piece of… Well, and i loved Robo Ky for that.

    • z_merquise

      It’s going to take some time before they can put every old characters.

      I won’t mind mixing new and old characters. As long as the new characters looked cool and fun to play, I’m all for it.

  • MrKappa

    Knowing full well how ASW does business I’m just gonna wait for the updated release of this game.
    Besides I only got one main with this current roster.

    • Guy Incognito

      Watch the next game be a sequel that has nothing to do with this one in 2 years.

  • Aaron Mason

    Great no returns, but a more technical Noel

  • Guy Incognito


  • Spectacularity

    She’s cute, but I want to see returning characters. T^T

    • z_merquise

      I so wanna see Dizzy as a playable character here.

  • 武神水樹

    What’s up with those eyes

  • Sourenga

    Coming from ArcSys, the official romanization is apparently “Elphelt”

    • 武神水樹

      Elfert sounds dumb

  • Gojira Twit

    What possible purpose are those buckles serving

    • Djkarl Pierre

      Making it hard for cosplayers to design the outfit

  • MasterSensei

    The game isn’t released yet but they are announcing DLC characters? How is this a good thing?

    • DrForbidden

      It’s not, IMO. However, that is the state of affairs in modern fighting games, unfortunately.

  • Djkarl Pierre

    DLC as Expected.

  • Aiddon

    every time I hear this girl talk, all that’s going to go through my head is “Hey, listen!” or just anything from Mako from Kill la Kill

  • Fainaru Luna

    Sweet she’s playable, but as dlc so are they going to expand the roster or is this it?

  • ($*Boss Life*CooL K Kartel$*)

    i have a feeling they gonna start milkin people for their money like street fighter,dead or alive,blazblue is already doing and they gonna come out with more dlc and make people like 3-5 bucks for each one

  • tokyobassist

    – Excited to see more new characters
    – Elfert sounds like a unique playstyle
    – Fucking ASW DLC sucks. I absolutely hate the way they handle it even more than Capcom. Outrageous prices for COLORS not COSTUMES, Character voice swaps and individual characters without the option of a season pass or bundle. They are criminal as far as handling DLC goes.
    – This character looks like she belongs in some generic all female doujin fighter. Uninspired even by BlazBlue standards.

    The Verdict:
    Completely torn between being excited to see new faces and hating everything I’m seeing right now.

  • DrForbidden

    On a related note, Embrace is releasing a Sol Badguy figure (Xrd version) around the same time the game comes out in Japan.

    • tokyobassist

      Would be cool to have this as a preorder bonus.

      • DrForbidden

        The statue’s at 1/8 scale and costs around 10,000 yen, so that’s unlikely.

  • Hidayat246

    Love character with gun-kata style
