Slayer The Vampire Will Be Back In Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-

By Ishaan . October 30, 2013 . 10:30am

In addition to Faust, Arc System Works have also confirmed that Slayer will be returning as a playable character in Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- via the game’s official site. Slayer is a vampire that first appeared in Guilty Gear XX. He foregoes the use of any sort of weapon and instead relies on hand-to-hand combat.

    Ooh. Can’t wait to see how they do his trippy idle IN 3D.

  • TheRealMalek

    Need Dizzy now !

    • Go2hell66

      Got a feeling dizzy wont be in this game

      • Doubt it with how iconic she is. At the very least she should be added to the console release or SIGH DLC, I GUESS.
        But she just cant not be in GG. She just cant!

        • TheRealMalek

          Seeing as she is the one of the few distant attack character it would be bad…

          • LuciferD666

            She seems to be still in the seal from Overture(she is the “Maiden of the Grove”). But she to the least has regained some consciousness(enough to hear Ky’s words).Paradigm says that he cannot rush this state of the undoing process. So typically it is looking slim unless we get a vastly extended story in the console ver.

          • TheRealMalek

            Ouverture is after Xrd no ?

            after search it is one year later :
            Guilty Gear Xrd presumably takes place at least a year after the events of Guilty Gear 2: Overture (2186), as Sol’s blade is marked with a pending patent, registered “Jan 15, 2187.”

            *sigh*, so this means she is married wityh ky <_<

            she is playable in Guilty Gear Vastedge XT so my guess is that we should see her :p

            And apparently in Vastedge Ky unsealed her…

          • Suzaku

            She is not playable in Vastedge. Vastedge only has two playable characters: Sol and Sin.

            According to the Overture prologue short story in the 25th anniversary book that was just released, Dizzy is still sealed and Paradigm is working to decode the encantation.

          • Considering how GG’s story is full to the brim with story vagueness and how it’s a fighting game in essence and not a story-driven one I wouldn’t put it past them if they created some BS plot device to bring her back.
            Alternatively, have a doppleganger of her replace her (BBCS for Nu) or an Arcade/Multiplayer only appearance.

          • kaimo

            ew so overture’s canon?

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      She’s currently still “sleeping”. I think I read that she’ll eventually wake up though.

  • Go2hell66

    One more character slot left on the official site. Please be Jam

    • Dianatos

      Wait, there’s a limited number of slots?! But I want everyone back!

      • Go2hell66

        Yea on the site theres only space for one more character and then on the side it says “and more” so im guessing they’ll only announce one more character before the november loke test

    • Freakmasta

      It’ll be Sin…sadly.

      • LuciferD666

        Yeah most likely. Or Valentine

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      do you think it’s possible they could expand the list again?.What does “and more” mean then? I really want Testament :( lol

  • andref

    surprised he is in the game when i thought he was going to go into seclusion permanently

  • Tenno Seremel

    Baiken or it didn’t happen (~_~)

    • colorblindnightmare

      Whens Baiken?

      • Servant BerserCAR

        You can unlock Baiken if you beat the story mode with Ky or Sol without continues. Er…. wait…. sorry wrong game. X3

  • BlitzWhat

    Is it wrong that I want Sin in?

    • Miss_Madness

      I want Sin too.

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      It’s confirmed that he still tags with Sol. It may be possible XD

  • Pinwheel

    Slayer? Faust? Okay, good. I don’t know why I was so damn worried there for awhile.

  • Love me some Slayer. I wish I was better with him. >_<

  • ivanchu77

    Have they said if they are going to include characters from overture? would be cool if they include Valentine in this

    • LuciferD666

      An official prologue for Xrd has revealed that Valentine “has returned”..She is a prominent reason for Sol upgrading his new fireseal “Junkyard Dog”(Although he complains it is too soon and he isn’t ready). If she is playable depends on Arc for now

      It also reveals that,to the least Sin,was traveling with Sol as of right before Xrd.Paradigm is within Ky’s aid. And no talk about Izuna. I’ll give a source if you want.

  • Benjamin Shaw

    Can’t wait to hear a second version of this…

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      Me too! I also loved Keep Yourself Alive III in Overture and although I’m expecting a new version I’m ok with that one!

    • colorblindnightmare

      I’m really curious about the ost as well. the new tracls in bbcp were amazing. I’m actually hoping for new songs Guilty believe it or not.

  • colorblindnightmare

    Surprised more people arent hype! I know I am!

  • LuciferD666

    Typically If there wasn’t any main that was in my top 3. I play Slayer a bit too(although really Johnny is still played a little more).So thankfully someone at least I casually play is here.

    But I’m still hoping for A.B.A/Anji, Sin,or Raven(I know I-no’s there so most likely he’s a no show this time lol). Just one of them would be fine

  • Göran Isacson

    Little bit surprised since I thought that Slayer was going to retire permanently, but I guess they didn’t want to let his fans down so.. contrived reason for him to come out of retirement ahoy!

    Although I AM one of said Slayer fans, so I guess I’m not TOO upset. He’s just too goshdarn cool.

    • colorblindnightmare

      You forgot classy. He has it in spades!

  • kaimo

    “Slayer Vampire will back Guilty Gear Xrd sign”

    Slayer confirmed for executive producer?

  • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

    Well the cast of GG is fucked up now :)

    • Richard N

      Nah, not until we got Zappa’s crazy ass.

  • xAKUM3TSUx

    Although my main (Testament) has not been announced I have hope he’ll make it…somehow. I’m actually more happy to see Slayer as I thought he was leaving. This goes especially for the folks that like him but I cant wait to see his “smooth” fly moves in this already amazing engine.

  • Julio D. Zulkarnain

    Oh man, nothing more satisfying than to finish a match with a haiku!

  • ShootThatWay

    The assassins are all here, except Eddie. Well, technically Zato-1 was the assassin but yeah.
