    I can’t wait to see him in action!


    well some one hasnt changed at all

  • Spirit Macardi

    Bridget next please :3

    • Arcana Wiz

      YES! :3
      Bridget has to trick this whole new generation of gamers!

      • Prinnydoom

        NO!!!! Fallen pray to that already it shall not happen again.

      • Göran Isacson

        Ha ha I read a comment somewhere that, if the rumours that this is a sequel that’s supposed to take place years after the latest Guilty Gear is true, the commenter was looking forward to Bridget being all grown up and looking SUPERBARA- just to troll the original fans of the character. For once Bridget got his wish- to be considered a dependable and manly man. I think that would be hilarious.

    • This would seriously make me more inclined to get a PS4 in 2014
      Arc, make it happen! Make Bridget known to the whole world!!

  • Miss_Madness

    He changed a little bit.

    Also I thought it was confirmed that he was Dr. Baldhead. Shows what I know. :c

    • Fidelis

      It was never explicitly stated in any kind of interview or official material, but it’s hinted at so hard that using the word “speculated” is an extreeeeeme understatement.

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      Speculation…Just like the other big speculate that Sol is Dizzy’s father. Who knows Dr. Baldhead could’ve had a son…Until confirmed we can only wait.

      • Astrotrain

        Sol is NOT Dizzy’s father.

        • xAKUM3TSUx

          Don’t worry I believe this as much as you. I don’t care what anyone says until it’s confirmed- there is no “solid” evidence.

          • Aisha Lee

            well its been stated that Dizzy’s father is canonally unknown. But with Justice true indentity and past being revealed (don’t known if this is also speculated) and that Dizzy is part human, part gear. There is only two likely canidates. Sol and That man.

          • xAKUM3TSUx

            If I were to think of anyone- you make a point about it being That Man.

      • DragKudo

        It’s kind of the same with sol and dizzy. What i mean is its been hinted at so many times.

  • Arcana Wiz

    He always semmed so creepy when i was a child…. he really creeped me out o.O

  • RichyGaming

    LOLOL I wonder what they’re gonna do with Jam. Assuming they are bringing her back.

    • Oniros

      They HAVE to bring her back.

    • Go2hell66

      Shes coming back

  • He still has pants, unlike Axl.

  • Mental

    Queue the madness!

  • Prinnydoom

    Just noticed this guy is flipping the bird. Good news for guilty gear fans i guess.

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      Why do you divert my eyes lolz

  • xAKUM3TSUx

    The only thing I see new about him is the two crosses on his arms. I see that as a good thing :)

  • LuciferD666

    I just wish A.B.A,Anji,Sin,Raven are in this game. I would take to the least if one of them were to be part of the cast. I mean I am fairly good with others of the cast(like Slayer or Johnny etc). But it’d make me comfortable if those could get in.

    And F-you ARC lol. We know Eddie(Zato-1) is a character. Don’t hide it with “coming soon”..But hey. That only gives me hope that we may get another new/returning character again like we did now(if they truly aren’t going to release him yet).

    Can’t wait to hear the Soundtrack. “Heavy Day” is indeed enough to know this game will ROCK like all the other ones!

  • Shane Guidaboni

    Needs more Baiken.

    • BalmungX

      And Slayer

    • Go2hell66

      And Jam

      • Aisha Lee

        Don’t forget about Dizzy.

        • Go2hell66

          actually dizzy might potentially be “warming the bench” this game according to this Guilty Gear Xrd story prologue


          • Freakmasta

            Dizzy will be DLC exclusive.

          • Aisha Lee

            Aw. That makes me a sad panda. But have Jam and Baiken in this game should be good until dizzy is released.

          • Vash bane

            that answers two main qustions had I about the series

            1) sweet it takes place after Overture

            2) holy mother dizzy is the maiden of the grove

            thanks for the link ^^’

  • This makes me wanna scream, “何が出るかな?!”

  • Weird Al Yankovic

    Needs Baiken, ABA, and Anji. But no matter what I-No’s already in so it’s all good.

  • Letiumtide

    Testament please~

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      This +100000

  • colorblindnightmare

    EXCELLENT. Now the game has GUARANTEED funny. Also more xrd news is always a good thing!

  • Richard N

    I suppose the cast so far has been lacking in the Super GG zaniness it’s known for.

  • Kitestwinblades

    Hyped – Just to see this guy open doors in people faces and set off nuclear bombs on the new engine :3

  • leingod

    Why does he use a paperbag over his head now?

    • Freakmasta

      He used to be an insane serial killer. But came to his senses and realizes what a terrible thing he did. So he hides his face and cures/helps people with their illnesses. That’s him in a nutshell…assuming he’s Dr. Baldhead with a bag.

      • leingod

        He looks even more insane with that paper bag over his head, though XD

  • the_rain

    Hyped! I hope all the original GG characters make it.

  • Fidelis
  • Aisha Lee
    • Arcana Wiz

      probably a new article.

  • Göran Isacson

    Aawww snap son! Doctor B-F in the house, God is in his heaven, everything is right with the world. Gotta say that the new design isn’t that different though, two crosses added to his sleeves… kinda wonder why even bother changing such a minute detail.

    Also Slayer is playable too. I am very much okay with that.
