Learn All About Guilty Gear Xrd Sign’s New Playable Character

By Sato . March 17, 2014 . 12:30pm

Arc System Works recently revealed that Guilty Gear Xrd –SIGN- boss character Ramlethal Valentine will be a playable character in the arcade game’s next update. 4Gamer gives us a closer look at the versatile character, who will be playable when the update hits this April.

 

 002

Ramlethal originally appeared as a boss character in the arcade mode of Guilty Gear Xrd, and she’s also a key part to the story.

 

  

Those of you who’ve played Guilty Gear 2: Overture might recognize Ramlethal’s last name “Valentine” from another character by the same name in the Xbox 360 game. In the above screen shot with Sol and the others, he notices the energy and mentions that it could possibly be another Valentine.

 

Here’s a look at Ramlethal using her familiar to pull off an attack with her two swords connected as one. She’ll have the ability to pull off various attacks using the sword in its single and dual-sword modes.

 

While her single-sword mode packs quite a punch to go with a long reach, it’ll be a little slower, which can leave her open to punishes. However, she won’t only be relying on her sword, so you might want to watch out for other tricks Ramlethal might have up her sleeve.

 

Her special grab move is just one of her many tricks, which can be used together as a combo with her great sword, making her excel at damaging and pressuring opponents.

 

And if that wasn’t enough, she can also shoot giant lasers from her sword. It’s a given that you’d take a lot of damage from a direct hit, but even guarding it has its risks, as well.

 

Arc System Works also shares a little info on the play data log, where you’ll be able to check out your stats on your profile, which will indicate your stats on different modes, rankings, the number of times you land various moves and specials, and the number of times you’ve used them.

 

This arcade feature is used through the Guilty Gear Xrd Player’s Guild “R-Code” system, where you can register and use it as a nice way to check out what moves you seem to excel at and what you could brush up on to become a better fighter. The console version will likely have something similar built into the game.

 

 

As an extra bonus, the Player’s Guild offers a voice comment system, where you can select different voice comments for each time you login to your account. You can even set your birthday on it, so you can hear Sol wish you a happy birthday!

 

Guilty Gear Xrd –SIGN- is currently out on Japanese arcades, and the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions will be released later this year.

    I’m definitely down to pick her up. I love that transition from innocent face to shark face.

  • OtoriGolden

    Ganguro ftw

  • Six

    Hopefully we continue to get more playable characters as the game inches closer to it’s console release.

    I need my girls Jam and Baiken.

    • Pyrofrost

      Milla and May are already in there, which I am happy about personally. However, I’m really hoping they add in Bridget, my 2nd best character.

    • z_merquise

      Pretty sure there would be. I’m hoping for more characters for console release.

      Most of my mains were already included (like Axl, Faust, Potemkin) but I so wanna see Dizzy added.

  • Shady Shariest

    Challenging both Cloud and Sephiroth to a fight of ridiculously sized swords… Wow.

  • pixxxelz

    So how’s the ps4 version coming along?
    I’m eager to test my skills with the ds4

  • Pdugna

    Ok I missed Overture completely but who is that other guy that is next to Sol and Ky? has shorter hair.

    • http://www.unit03.net blackraen

      I believe that is Sin (Shin?), Ky’s son.

      • Pdugna

        ohh yeah didn’t recognize him without his stupid looking flag waving everywhere.

    • Kevin Delphi

      The short blonde hair man is Sin from GG Overture. More i could tell you but that would be spoilers. Also that pic shows this game is after GG Overture

  • Minos

    Wait…….

    Overture is canon?

    • Arcana Drill

      Yep, they confirmed that this takes place after it.

      • Minos

        Oh crap… I was able to sleep at night thiking it wasn’t…

        • Slayven19

          What exactly does this change? From the looks of it nothing bad seems to have happened with the game.

    • Godmars

      Wait. There’s been a story to this fighting series?

      Anyplace where its been summarized?

      • z_merquise

        Guilty Gear Wikia should be the best place for that.

      • Minos

        It will take you a week or 2 and a lot of reading on the wikia make it have sense, so be prepared.

  • The Watcher

    Eh, she looks too Blaz Bluey

    Guilty Gear how I have longed for your return when Street Fighter has become the one fighting game series i’m bored of, but fortunately Gundam Extreme Vs. Full Boost is looking awesome.

    Oops almost forgot about J-Stars Victory Vs. I wanna play as many characters there from Tsuna, yusuke, Ichigo, Luffy, Naruto, Seiya, Kenshiro, and many more.

    Btw here’s a petition to get it localized.

  • Death Metal

    Oh my God, this game is looking gorgeous. The part I’m upset about is the lack of news regarding the PS4 version; I’ve recently got a PS4 and I need fighters (and racers) on it desperately.

    I had not realized that there still are no games for me on it yet. Injustice and NFS don’t count because I already have them on the previous generation and/or PC, so the PS4 urgently needs fighters. The XO already has Killer Instinct and Fighter Within, of which the latter at least looks really great (apart from the Kinect nonsense).

  • Mind0105A

    Waiting for the console version, like now!

  • leingod

    She looks pretty cool… at least way more interesting to me than that other guy stuck to a bed or something.

    • Slayven19

      How can you forget about Bed, Man!

  • DragKudo

    Holy shit its SIN!!

  • DragKudo

    I wonder if this will be in english or Japanese. I grew up with JP voices but I do like Yuri, Troy, and Liam.

  • makubexnas

    Im still gay for bridget.

  • Slayven19

    She has a very beautiful face.

  • http://strictlyapathy.comoj.com/ SoulArbiter

    This game just keeps getting better and better every time I hear something about it! It may just even drive me to buy a PS4.

  • Göran Isacson

    Oooh, so that’s how you fuse the two swords together. Neat weapon design, though I still giggle a little at how the big bad is wearing booty shorts. I-No could pull it off, here… eeh, I’m not feeling it so much.

    And in other news: hi Sin! Wonder if you’re playable too.

  • ShootThatWay

    Aw yeah, without at least one character with giant lasers, it wouldn’t be as fun. I hope it has a more ridiculous motion than Justice and Dizzy. Makes everything more satisfying when it connects.

    Also, Kliff has nothing on giant dual blades.

    I need this really badly but they better add testament master of puppets ftw

  • Vash bane
