Famitsu magazine’s website has shared the first screenshots of Sin Kiske from Guilty Gear Xrd –Sign-. Sin, who is the son of Ky and Dizzy, uses his trademark flag in combat.

 

Famitsu reports that Sin has the ability to trigger a special move immediately after using another special move. We’ll have more details as they’re made available.

    D’aaaw, he looks so happy in his character art.

  • Hagaren

    I love Guilty Gear. You have people fighting with flags, anchors, pool cues. guitars, giant keys and yoyos!
    Simply can’t wait for Xrd!

    • Prinnydoom

      And a lighter sword if your Sol.

    • friendly neighborhood_dude

      All that with badass heavy metal music <3
      The waiting game gets harder by the day :(

      • Hagaren

        Yep, there’s some heavy days of waiting ahead, but we all know it will be super worth it in the end.

        • friendly neighborhood_dude

          I see what you did there dude.
          Yup, it definitely will be worth every minute of waiting.

  • Shippoyasha

    It’s like that one flagbearer girl fighter in that one obscure fighting game.

    • James Reilly

      Hilde from Soul Calibur? Not really an obscure fighting game series.

      • Shippoyasha

        There were about 4 or 5 flagbearer fighters and some of them definitely are incredibly obscure.

        Yeah, Merleawe, that’s who I was thinking of. I actually do remember there being a few more though.

        • Isuke-sama

          Does Mr.President from JoJo ASB count?

    • Merleawe

      Is this her?

  • Go2hell66

    he’d fit right in if this were Jojo’s BA

    • z_merquise

      Zappa is the one who fits more in JoJo. He even had spirits that looked very similar to Stands.

      • xAKUM3TSUx

        Every time people compare GG to Jojo I always piece that and this–

        • Göran Isacson

          I always get a kick out of what’s going on with Slayer’s legs. I don’t know if he just breaks them apart and keeps on flopping his broken stumps everywhere because he’s a vampire and can regenerate the injuries instantaneously, or if this is just how Ishiwatari rolls.

    • MSJ

      GG has a LOT of nods to JJBA, so I’d say he fits right in

  • Brimfyre

    Great. Where’s Bridget?

  • CptPokerface

    Don’t understand why people were in such an uproar over this guy’s outfit. Looks just like a guilty gear character for sure.

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      I seriously dont get it either. To me he looks fine but to each his own I guess.

      • CptPokerface

        I mean people were fine with Bridget and Testament and his halter top and skirt combo and oddly shapely legs. But this guy is too much? Weird.

        • Brion Valkerion

          That and they had 7 years to complain about this characters look. Then again, most probably think he is “new” to the GG universe.

        • xAKUM3TSUx

          SEE! Thats exactly what I’m saying lolz. Testament’s I thought was reeeeealy out there but as I got used to the game and have been into the series for years I thought to myself these: outlandish designs are what make them unique.

    • Mc-kun

      I personally like it over the old one. I mean come on they showed the new outfits in the pachinko game so I have no idea why people are surprised.

      • CptPokerface

        The game he’s from is apparently extremely unpopular so there’s that I suppose. Still, even if you didn’t know who he was you would be able to tell right away that he’s a GG character.

        It’s no more or less outlandish as anyone else’s outfit.

        • Mc-kun

          Overture marked: *Tons of spoilers*

          Made Ky and Dizzy canon which left fans butthurt and annoyed.

          Made it even more canon with the Overture side stories stating that Ky loves Dizzy and bringing Sin into the world.

          Made fans even more mad because Valentine’s plans made Dizzy end up being sealed away in the first place with the gears vanishing and what not.

          Was the first GG game outside of Isuka that didn’t have fighting.

          *End spoiler*

          So I assume that everyone is just annoyed because of Overture and ignoring the fact that his new outfit showed up recently.

    • Shippoyasha

      There’s just a weird argument online about Guilty Gear fans suddenly attacking Blazblue for having strange designs because they feel GG is more a ‘heavy metal’ aesthetic while Blazblue is too wild. Clearly they are too nostalgic over GG’s designs, because they always have been over the top, arguably even more so than Blazblue at times.

      It’s just a strange squabble people have. Like the old FF6 vs FF7 and Persona 3 and 4 brouhahas. They are all in the same family of games. People should not be fighting so much over it.

      • CptPokerface

        What are they, nuts? Because characters like Bridget, Robo-Ky, Potemkin, Anji Mito, Dizzy, Slayer, Zappa, Jam, Chipp, Faust and Ky totally seem like “heavy metal” designs. Definitely.

        They may have a point with characters like Testament or Zato-1, or Sol, maybe even Baiken, but they’re kidding themselves with the rest of them.

        It’s funny you mention FF7 because looking back, a lot of GG fans seem to act just like them. P4A and Blazblue be damned, it always should be about Guilty Gear.

        • Shippoyasha

          That’s the strange thing I guess. There’s just a strange fanboyism rising over the franchise because GG is back. In some forums, it is almost like a slur to say one likes Blazblue anymore. Just sad, considering that it’s the same line of games with the same lineage basically.

          Fighting game fans especially shouldn’t squabble over nonsense like that when the genre is plenty niche already and people should be sticking up for eachother, not fight eachother into the ground.

          • CptPokerface

            People get uncomfortable when something is “too anime”. And I totally get it, sometimes it’s too much for me too but Blazblue is great. And so is GG, you can’t really compare it to anything else.

            I’ll just chalk most of it up to excitement.

  • Cyberpunk9

    his outfit sucks ..I didn’t like :/

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    I still prefer Dizzy. She’s cute, sweet and has a fine body wrapped in a dominatrix outfit.

    Trivia time! Dizzy is possibly Sol’s daughter, therefore, Sol is Sin’s grandpa.

    • John Lawson

      too bad she’s still frozen, until Ky figures out a way to keep her from disappearing, She, along with other GG characters, have a high chance of being DLC tho

      • Aisha Lee

        or sequel material, but I honestly doubt that any character would be left behind for a long period of time.

      • http://www.facebook.com/MHKogath Kogath

        But Ky has Thunderseal again, and he had to sacrifice it to freeze Dizzy in time.

        • John Lawson

          I thought that too, but it’s actually a replica, Dizzy is still sealed, Dr. Paradigm and Ky are still figuring a way to free her. Sol’s Fireseal looks the way it does because he upgraded it with a Piece of OUTRAGE (which looks like a lightbulb). All this is detailed in the Slot machine game we never got.

          • Göran Isacson

            I both hate and love that Guilty Gear is so crazy that it provides important plot information… in a obscure damn pachinko game of all things.

      • Stephen Mc Devitt

        Dizzy will likely be the Jun Kazama of Guilty Gear.

        • Mc-kun

          But Jun has no valid reason on being dead since they retcon the whole Orge incident and she was in TTT2. Dizzy has a plot related reason and there are hints that she might come back in the next game.

          • Göran Isacson

            Ho? They retconned Ogre? Did they do it in Six, because I still haven’t gotten around to play that game.

          • Mc-kun

            Oh shit I should had put spoiler tags but i thought everyone knew because T6 has been out for a while. My bad.

            SPOILER

            They brought back people whom Orge killed like Baek Doo San by retconing it. Instead of being dead (which explains Hwo’s appearance in T3,) he was ‘in a coma.’ This happened with a lot of people who ‘died’ in Tekken 3 which is why Jun not showing up doesn’t make sense.

          • Göran Isacson

            Ha ha, it is okay, I will readily admit that my affection for Tekken’s overall story is lukewarm at best. Still, I suppose they’re saving Jun in that case for some really dramatic moment in Tekken 7 perhaps, like Jin is about to go Full Ultimate Douche and then mommy appears to slap some sense into him, etc.

          • Mc-kun

            That sounds like a really good plot point. I agree about Tekken’s storyline. The only ones I’ve enjoyed fighting game wise was Guilty gear, blazeblue, and Persona 4 Arena.

          • Göran Isacson

            Ha, yeah ArcSys has been a pretty strong proponent of that kind of “Visual Novel” esque storytelling in their fighting games. That’s what drove me to the GG franchise to begin with, haven’t regretted it yet. Kinda curious as to when the other big franchises are gonna step up their game, so far the only ones with that ambition seems to be Netherrealm.

    • Astrotrain

      Sol is not Dizzy’s father.

      • Aisha Lee

        Well he said possibly, so I don’t think he’s stating it as a fact. Even though Dizzy’s father is canonically unknown, but given Dizzy’s mother rumored past. You could see why he would mention Sol as being Dizzy’s father.

  • ivanchu77

    meh….at first sight i don´t like his design, looks like a douchebag, but maybe story mode makes me change my opinion depending of what he does.

    I hope they make his mother playable next time :)

  • xAKUM3TSUx

    I asked to see Beak Driver and one day later I see it, Thx Siliconera lolz!

  • Espoir

    Ooohhhh, nice nice :>

    BUT WHERE’S MAH BRIDGET T.T

    • Nix da

      Wouldnt it be funny if bridget wasnt a trap anymore but really a buffed guy ?

  • Brion Valkerion

    Hope we get the other characters introduced in GG2 as well. Dr. Paradigm would be amazing.

  • MasterScrub

    Well, that’s at least one character saved from the abomination that was GG2.

    • JokerFace

      Izuna and Raven need to come as well. a Valentine copy already exist in the game so she’s outta the way

  • roockie112

    Heck Yeah I couldn’t be more happier.But I would also love to see in the game
    1Testament
    2Johnny
    3Izuna
    4Anji Mito
    5Order Sol

  • Suriel Cruz

    This game looks so sick!!!
    I was surprise to know, he’s Ky and Dizzy son.

    • http://www.destructoid.com/blogs/mgbenz mgbenz

      He’s existed like 7 years ago.

      I understand though. Not many people know Overture existed or people who did know love to pretend it didn’t exist.

      • Suriel Cruz

        Tbh, I only know the very first ‘Guilty Gear’ games and after those, many more fighting games came out and RPGs, so I forget about Guilty Gear, but with these kind of graphics, i just can’t ignore it, not anymore.

  • http://zenkostickfighter.blogspot.com/ Zenko404

    His outfit is very GG, and Sin is such a nice little guy. I remember that part when Sin only had the appearance of a 4 years kid, he stopped Ky and Sol when they went to fight, because he say to Sol that if he hurt Ky (even when Sin admitted to hate his dad) it’s gonna make his mother cry (Dizzy of course) and he will not allow that to happen. Sweet boy :3

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      I wonder. is that what this piece of art was for?

      • Göran Isacson

        Oh man, is little Sin holding a doll of that weird thingamajig that was the protagonist in some obscure ArcSys downloadable game? Because I think he is.

        • colorblindnightmare

          It’s not on a game to my kowledge. When Daisuke was on bururaji last to talk about xrd he was using it as his avatar.

          • http://zenkostickfighter.blogspot.com/ Zenko404

            That character have a game. Is a stranger plataform digital game for Nintendo DS

      • http://zenkostickfighter.blogspot.com/ Zenko404

        Yep and Yep. That Art is from the novel pre-Overture if i’m right

    • Leonard Norwood Jr.

      Of course despite all that trash talking Sin says to his Dad, the reason why Ky has been so busy to the point Sin got pissed at him is because certain A-holes forced Ky to become a king of a country, I forgot the name. Those same A-holes from the Government, threatened to reveal him with Dizzy who is a gear to the public, and give him all sorts of crud, unless he became their puppet king they can control. Ky was in a heck of a situation and had no choice but to accept their cruel offer. Sin may act all that, but he’s still a bratty child unknowing of his father’s situation.

      • http://zenkostickfighter.blogspot.com/ Zenko404

        I know the Ky’s background, but that isn’t saved him for be a bad father. How Sin is gonna understand Ky’s situation? Ky barely gave him a little attention and the fact that Sin has lived more time with Sol don’t make the situation better. Literally, Sin lived with his father only 6 months.
        Ky has never taken the time to talk with Sin about Dizzy or his position so the only things that Sin knows are that his mother is frozen for Ky’s fault and that he never been a good dad for him.
        Is not Sin’ faults, he is only a kid who really love is mom and never felt the love of his father.

        • Leonard Norwood Jr.

          Valentine actually had more do with dizzy almost disappearing, ky just made sure dizzy was frozen in time to keep her from disappearing. He has been working with Dr. Paradigm to unfreeze her. As for the both of them, that’s something these two need to work out.

        • Leonard Norwood Jr.

          Well not surprising, but all this because Ky is trying to make sure that Humans and Gears can find a way to coexist. After the stuff he went through in his life, he had no childhood much, he went through the Crusades and killed many people. And the fact that he knew that Gears weren’t all that evil than people made them out to be. And his life was Dizzy was a bit convenient up until the Senate tried to screw him over. So I can see while he has been trying to change things, it also made him miss out on every single thing with his son. But those things Ky went through is the reason why Ky’s shaped up that much to want to make sure he guarantee the hope of all living species. The thought is easier said than done, but he’s trying to make it happen unless he will be force to choose between one or the other, the other being to his family.

          I know he’s not a good father, but that doesn’t mean there’s a man inside him that will try to find a way. Only reason he left Sin with Sol, because of the danger Sin faced if people found out about his family. Of course Sin faced a different hardship, and has learned some things first hand, even if he did understand Ky’s actions, he may see things differently than his father. But the question is that will Humans and Gears always be at each others necks and never get along? It is more than a sketchy situation. I still feel for both Ky and Sin. Sin never had much growing up with his bad relationship with his Dad, and hanging out with Sol who is more of a father than Ky according to Sin, and Ky, his background is just seems a tragedy in a sense, and he’s lived through the whole crusades and seen things that he had questioned and wanted to do something about it. Even now, the Senate is trying to undermine him and yet there’s people who believe and trust in him. And before we ever get to see Ky and Sin try again. We got another Valentine tearing stuff up and all around, and whatever happened to That Man..?

        • Leonard Norwood Jr.

          Still it ain’t so hopeless for those two. Those two bumbling idiots going to have to get out of their BS for real. Mostly Ky. But right now, this current story in this new Guilty Gear is going to keep them busy.

  • fairysun

    Sin: “Dad, you wear too much clothes, and Mom, you barely wear anything. So, NO, you guys have no right complaining how I dress.”

  • MrJechgo

    “Getting flagged” just took a whole new meaning XD

    • colorblindnightmare

      You get a high five for that. Well Said!

  • Mc-kun

    I was going to main my sub Ky (because my main was Bridget in the old games) but now I guess I’ll main the Kiske family instead with Sin>Ky. What I want to know is: Vs theme? Funny intro?

    “YOU STILL A ***** KING!”

    “That’s it Sin I’m going to spank you!”

    Round 1 fight!

    • JokerFace

      I would be better if it said something regarding their mother/wife or the fact that she’ll be free soon so i would like something like:

      “Your mother would be happy to see us together.”

      “Tch. You’re still a shity king.”

      Duel 1; Lets Rock!

  • Vincent Ho

    While it’s awesome Sin is coming back, I’d like to know the condition of the classic GG characters like Baiken, Johnny, Anji, Bridget, Jam, Dizzy (not sure about her condition since GG2), Testament, Justice, Zappa, Kliff Undersn, and Robo-Ky…

    • Fidelis

      Man, no offense meant at all, ’cause I’m with you completely, but it’s starting to feel like a broken record’s playing in here.

      Always the exact same list…

      • Vincent Ho

        well when you cut a roster down by 10 people, you know there are gonna be some complaints

    • Mc-kun

      There’s rumors but don’t hold your breath. Game comes out this fall so unless they do DLC…

    • JokerFace

      There is only time for 1 more character to be announced and i’m hoping it’s Either Zappa, Bridget, or Johnny. Zappa and Bridget could come in at anytime but they have May in the game and she does nothing without Johnny so my question is…….Where the hell is Johnny?

  • Göran Isacson

    Looking pretty neat. Kinda curious about one thing though- can anyone who’s played Overture say what that dark energy surrounding Sin in two of the screen shots mean? Is that a thing he had back in Overture, or is it something new?

    • Mc-kun

      Sin has lighting powers like his dad and Gear abilities but neither have been explained much yet.

      • Vincent Ho

        A mixture of Ky’s abilities and Dizzy’s abilities no doubt

    • DragKudo

      In Overture he shoots a red beam as one of his specials and when he was brainwashed he wears red and black and shoots red/black beams and crap.

      • Göran Isacson

        I see, so it might be some kind of Gear-power or somesuch. Neat.

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      It is his trademark “Red Lightning”. Also just so you know, Sin also can perform his very own “Ride the Lightning” and he does so three times in a row. That specific attack looks like “Phantom Barrel”: a high discharge of hyper condensed lightning. In GG2 it can be as strong as an overdrive depending on the soldier status. I wonder how they’ll implement it in Xrd!

      • Göran Isacson

        Aaah, so they are going to draw from that game then. I guess that’s a nice bonus for the people who actually played it.

        • JokerFace

          Well it was known that Overture was canon and that they were drawing from it when the main villain was announced as Rhamelthal who is just a Valentine copy who is just an Areia copy. I’m still waiting for the day, However, when they actually let Raven be playable in a fighting for once. COMMON ASW!

  • Zen Grenadier

    Hoping Zappa and Faust are in the game. I was pretty decent with Zappa too.

    • Göran Isacson

      Faust has been shown, but so far no sign of Zappa, I’m afraid.

  • Sol badass

    He looks really cool imo. and for all those who are concerned about returning characters, Daisuke said he plans on bringing all the classics back. Its just a matter of time and money. He said its expensive making the models. Dont ask for a link cuz I cant remember since someone else gave me said link. It was an interview last month.

  • DragKudo

    Fun fact: Sin is only Five years old.

    I wonder if his mockingbird is going to be one his attacks.

  • Shady Shariest

    That is some nice character design.

  • Raging Rasta

    FLAG COMBOS!

  • GÍlgamesh Goldenking

    …… ummm seriously flags lol wasn’t frying pan enough XD :v lol
