Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN Adds Potemkin And Milla Rage

By Spencer . August 6, 2013 . 3:22am

imageArc System Works is bringing Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN to arcades for a location test. The early build will have seven playable characters: Sol Badguy, May, Venom, Chip Zanuff, Milla Rage, and Potemkin.


One change to the Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN system is how Dust attacks work. Dust is like a launcher that doesn’t do much damage. In Guilty Gear XX Accent Core+ a dust attack sends an opponent flying and if you hold up you can follow up with an air combo.


Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN gives players two options for Dust attacks. You can press up to do a homing jump or press forward to dash towards the opponent.

    I’m totally hyped for this game, been waiting for a sequel for years and always have AC+ on my PSP.


    • RichyGaming

      DUEL ONE

      • NeoStrayCat

        LET’S ROCK! X3

  • Taylor Wills

    you only listed 6 characters…. though I’m presuming the 7th is Ky Kiske
    but asside from that I’m SOOOOOOOOOOOO PUMPED FOR THIS GAME

  • Sentsuizan_93

    That new design for Milla Rage looks so awesome. Can’t wait to see the other designs. Man this looks so awesome.

  • endril

    They didn’t modify Venom’s design at all, I guess they were happy with his weird shirt that he rips off the middle half of…?

    • AkuLord3

      The best Outfit…why change that

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      They gave him one extra belt! That’s a complete makeover doood! (joking)

  • Fitzkrieg

    Potemkin’s taking fashion tips from Panzerfaust, I see.
    I like it.

  • MrJechgo

    May doesn’t look older… how come? Shouldn’t she be older if the game happens after the events of Overture?

    • Chow

      Maybe her anchor shrunk with her, along with… other things.

  • ivanchu77

    pics of the ” new” characters

    • Mister_Nep

      Why did May’s breasts shrink?

      • Poor girl probably hasn’t been eating good…

        • neocatzon

          Piracy hasn’t going well lately.

      • anthony apduhan

        That’s because it’s not May! It’s Bridget in disguise!

      • The Watcher

        Didn’t eat enough Genetically modified food.

      • Arizato

        Why does that matter?

        • Neppygear

          Why *doesn’t* it matter?

        • Kevin Schwarz

          It DOES matter.

      • Because yum,

      • mikanko

        Never mind that! The game takes place over six years later. Girl definitely has something weird going on besides the mosquito bites. =|

    • Tonton Ramos

      Potemkin! What is with the helmet?!

    • Isuke-sama

      May’s pic says that “I do my best Johnny!”, so this means Johnny is pretty much comfirmed.

    • Slayven19

      Loving the designs, are there any fullbody arts of millia and ky?

      Edit:nevermind I found it.

    • vileBrenman

      I like potemkin’s new look!

  • AkuLord3

    Well yeah Milia being playable is a GIVEN : p. Nice to see Chipp, May (you got younger?) Venom (my main), Eddie/Zato-1 and Potemkin (The heck happened to you). I wonder what other old faces and new ones we’ll see

  • Other than Potemkin looking like that one dude from Battle Angel Alita during the Motorball arc, everyone looks about the same. I’m loving Millia’s hat. So glad that this fighting series is still around.

  • I’m kind of liking new Potemkin. I wonder what made him change so much. Bring on I-no! Unless her ass is still stuck in that crystal thing from her ending…

    • Alex Sargeant

      I think in one of his endings in Accent Core Plus he was killed in a suicide bomb attack trying to protect and official. They erect a statue for him and everything.

      • Yeah I remember that ending, they probably pulled a Robocop on him and redid his whole body from the explosion.

    • Guest

      Actually. Daisuke Ishiwatari confirmed in an interview for Overture that I-no was released from her petrified state.The reason she’s not accompanying “That Man” and Raven in GG2 is simply because she was tasked with something else during the storyline.

      “The Cube” is something “That Man” has personal involvement with. Therefore he wanted to deal with the actions of Valentine personally.Which is why he made it his business to appear Even if in the end he entrusted(or planned for) Sol and etc to resolve the issue.

  • Ninastars

    Potemkin better start boasting about how Zepp science is the best in the world wearing that getup.

    • z_merquise

      Like Stroheim from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure?

      • Pinwheel

        Nazi science IS the best in the world, after all.

      • German Science is sekaichi!

  • Go2hell66

    potemkin looks like a complete rip of panzerfaust from skullgirls

    • Neppygear

      And Millia is totally ripping off Filia. Their names are even almost the same!


      • Fidelis

        GG did come first, if that’s the point you’re trying to make, but this design didn’t surface until much after panzerfaust debuted as a character

        • Slayven19

          So you think they saw him and hurried up and copied the look and not something they have planned for him since like ever?

          • Fidelis

            There is a chance they could have drawn inspiration from the design.
            That’s my only point.

          • Zeik56

            Not impossible, but if he’s going to be a playable character in the loketest that likely means they settled on a design awhile ago. I think it’s just a coincidence.

  • xAKUM3TSUx

    From this I can see that most of the endings in AC+ follow the most positive ones but I could be wrong. Anyways I love the designs and hope most if not all characters make a return.

    It would also be nice to see Sin and Izuna. Would be fun to see Paradigm. I hope they add Raven and bring back (my fav) Testament too! All in all I just hope this turns out to be the best GG yet. I’ve been waiting so long for it that it was almost like a dream come true when they announced its return on my b-day. Keep up the good work Arc!

  • Neppygear

    Welp, Chipp and Millia are present. I’m pretty much set now.

  • Aisha Lee

    After seeing these design. I can’t want to see how Dizzy (if its possible for her to come back after what happen in overture), Jam, and Baiken look.

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      I hope Jam comes back too…even though she has the most simplest story. If you look at Sol and Ky’s gameplay, just imagine how brutal her attacks will look now!

    • Firekitty

      I could be wrong, but isn’t this in a different timeline from Overture?

      • Aisha Lee

        Its persumed that GGXRD takes place one year after the events in Overture. I believe the trailer might have said something about Sol’s weapon having a pending patent that was registered on Jan 15, 2187; Overture takes place in 2186.

  • Patrick Lucas Honeyman

    The returning characters are mostly looking fine but I have to ask a very important question. Why the obsession with adding belts, buckles and straps to every character? They’re not wrong in themselves but when almost every character is brandishing them on random parts of their clothing its time to go back to the drawing board with the designs ASW.

    • AzureRyuujin

      That’s Ishiwatari’s thing. Look at Sol’s old design.

    • Aisha Lee

      Its to keep all that manliness secured.

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      It’s kind of a fashion I’ve noticed in the series. Most characters in GG also wear finger-less gloves. It reminds me that it’s a “GG”.game

    • FFmax

      That’s an easy one Ishiwatari is best buds with Tetsuya Nomura. Seriously they love belts.

    • Chee Yang

      to keep the designs consistent so you’ll know they’re from the same universe. just like how the saiyan armor have a similar look and feel.

  • Tenno Seremel

    Baiken or it didn’t happen %)

  • Guest

    Here’s the full art for millia rage

  • Slayven19

    Here’s the fullbody artwork for millia rage. Love the hat and the orange, look quite good if you ask me.

    • Sergio Briceño

      Too bad for us all pervs fans of the last outfit XD

      • Istillduno

        I know, that hat needs to be covered up man, at least it’s not as bad as that Team Fortress filth, hats upon hats upon hats, will someone please think of the children!

        Oh they did, May had a hat from the start, this filth needs an adults only rating and should be kept behind the counter lest some innocent child could stumble upon it.

        • Sergio Briceño

          ? I don’t get your sarcasm. I am a perv and I loved the last long shirt outfit (no pants or skirt).

    • Zeik56

      I don’t like the hat. The rest of the outfit is alright, but the hat bugs me.

      • Shady Shariest

        “I am de pope of this game!”?

    • Shady Shariest

      Somehow brings BB’s Taotaka to my mind on first glance…

    • konsama

      The costume looks cool, and i can’t wait to main Millia again.

      Tho, wouldn’t a hat hinder her in combat? I mean, she fights with her hair. >_> It’s like trying to do karate handcuffed.

      • Zeik56

        I was thinking the same thing. Although if she has full power to manipulate it I suppose she could manipulate from wherever she wanted, rather than directly from the scalp. Not really sure how her hair power works.

      • LuciferD666

        That hat may be a memory based seal.You know like how Sol’s headband works like a limiter device. It’s probably to keep Angra from deviating her personality and going insane.

  • Sergio Briceño

    *Looks at Potemkin*

    Alphonse, is that you?

  • xAKUM3TSUx

    I wonder how Sin would look in this game. (Did Sol ditch him again?)

  • leingod

    Milla looks weird. But since it’s a polygonal game now, I guess we can expect alternate costumes as well :)

    • Slayven19

      Weird should be a good thing imo, sol looks to much like he did the first time around which is boring.

      • leingod

        I bet he’ll have at least his “Order Sol” costume too, though.

        • Slayven19

          Well I”m kinda hoping for costumes in general :D.

  • Demeanor

    Seven characters: Sol, May, Venom, Chip, Milla and Potemkin. Uhm. So who’s the seventh? XD Jaaaaaaammmmm c’mon! Or Dizzy!

    • Zeik56

      Uh, Ky?

  • Ouryu

    Arc System Works is the best!

  • Göran Isacson

    Scrolling down the character designs, Millia’s looking fierce, May is looking quite though what the hell shouldn’t she be older by now, maybe it’s some weird magic thing and Potemkin…


    Oh Potemkin baby no what have they DONE with you? D:

    Darnit I LIKED Potemkins design, his face had so much personality in it. Covering him up like this just seems like it dehumanizes him. ANd what is up with his feet? Chip and Venom are barely any different though, but Potty, man… not a fan. Not a fan.

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      My feelings exactly. I’m happy he finally became a general of Zepp but his appearance is what made Potemkin…well Potemkin. Even if they took just the helmet off I would be a lot more satisfied. Every time I look at him he just seems like a robot now. I’m “okay” with his new design but who knows, They might give you costumes in this GG.

      And yeah the personality thing you were talking about, I know exactly what you mean–

      • Göran Isacson

        Yeah, I think what particularly gets to me is how… he smiles. He makes funny faces. He has, despite being so huge he can’t even put on a shirt, a sort of quiet dignity to him that so many brawlers just DON’T. They’re almost always the funny Zangief-type, big, lovable lunkheaded lugs. Potemkin got selfconscious about his size, liked to draw but had to use specialized crayons that didn’t break, and just felt so… HUMAN. Despite being such a superhuman looking dude. Now he, as you say, look like a robot.

        Has anyone translated the profile pic text yet, by the way? Kinda interested in seeing what it says.

  • Lester Paredes

    Potemkin looks kinda like a Heartless in the face. C’mon, Arc… i don’t care if he’s wearing a new uniform or anything, but don’t take away his imposing glare!
