Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- Adds A New Gunner Girl Character

Arc System Works revealed the latest addition to Guilty Gear Xrd’s playable roster with Elfeldt, who will appear as a DLC character on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Zaregoto shares some more details from this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine.

 

While we don’t have a closer look at the new character, you can get an idea of what she looks like on the left part of the above image of the magazine preview.

 

Unlike most of the other characters from the Guilty Gear series who use melee weapons, Elfeldt is a gunner who fights using both rifles and shotguns. She can snipe to deal damage from a long distance and also has some sort of powerful potshot attack.

 

She also has some unique characteristics that will let you aim while and reload. Arc System Works feel that players will get to enjoy FPS-like controls while playing as her.

 

Elfeldt will be available as a free bonus DLC for those who purchase first-print copies of the game, and will be purchasable later on for 800 yen. Her and Sin Kiske will both be playable during Tokyo Game Show 2014.

 

If you’re curious about how Guilty Gear characters are made, check out Siliconera’s recent interview withcreator Daisuke Ishiwatari who talked about how he came up with ideas for characters like Bedman.

 

Guilty Gear Xrd –Sign- will be released later this year for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

    She’s a gunner? She sure doesnt look like one.

    • persona_yuji

      You know what else isn’t what it looks like? Bridget.

      • aizen310
      • Digidyne017

        When I first got into guilty gear, I though Bridget was a hot girl, but then my fantasies were….Destroyed.. when I got into the story mode, and then went for confirmation on the wiki due to disbelief.

      • HarakiriKami

        Not pedo -bait we swearz

      • ForteWily

        Ok, please stop…. Bridget’s not in the game (I have not idea if he is intended to be in the Xrd roster or not) and given the time skip in Xrd, I doubt that he would be the same.
        Just let it go… if he appears, great… if not and that just something that you have to live with. That require the exchange of money, then you are a bit richer for them not putting him in.

        • persona_yuji

          Did the joke flew right through you or are you that of a buzzkill?

          • ForteWily

            I am that much of a buzzkill. One too many debates over the internet.

  • z_merquise

    It’s so nice to see new characters added here. Even if it is a DLC, at least it’s free. Hoping it’s the same for the English release.

    There’s one gun-wielding character in Arcana Heart but she carries dual-pistols only. I think this is a first fighting game character who had multiple guns for a weapon.

    • Kaihedgie

      Noel Vermillion :V

      • PlayingSpades

        No…..not that retarded shit…..just no, please don’t ruin this for me ;~;

        • persona_yuji

          WHat you have some kind of vermilion trauma?

          • PlayingSpades

            When I started BB I was actually interested in her play style with her being unique with wielding guns and all. Later on it became a habit of me to mash buttons when I make combos in BB…I kinda still have that habit but not frequently, thank god.

          • Shippoyasha

            You can actually learn to stop mashing with Noel considering she does have a technical side to her that’s very underappreciated. You really need to learn which attacks do what with her or else you can get punished bigtime from an opponent who knows how to punish wreckless Noel play.

          • PlayingSpades

            I main Tager today and when I meet up with a reckless Noel they get smashed…hard. A skilled Noel player is like a different story to me when it comes to skill.

          • Shippoyasha

            Skilled Noels just seem unbeatable due to them having absolute control over their expansive moveset. I like Tager as well. It’s simple and brutal with Tager.

            Noel is a sweet science really. Then again, I do main Carl, who is even more of a technical skill character than Noel is. I have no idea why I chose such a difficult character to main. I do try to play all characters though.

          • colorblindnightmare

            Two words, Hakumen and Yukikaze.

          • persona_yuji

            Oh I know that feeling, but I carried on my wish of making Noel my main and tried to master her play style, but I’m still a mediocre player at best.

      • persona_yuji

        Arcana Hearts
        came out in 2006, Blazblue in 2008.

    • Shippoyasha

      Well, I think Injustice was a pretty solid example with Deathstroke in Injustice. Who used grenade launchers, long range machinegun fire and pistols.

    • BalmungX

      Shes’s free DLC?

      • z_merquise

        It said in the article that she’s free for the first-print copies. But that’s just in Japan.

        No details how she’ll be in the English release.

        • BalmungX

          Understood, the english release is on Dec,or is that the japanese one?,i don’t remember

  • PlayingSpades

    Rifle and a shotgun? we’ve got the best of both world’s and every shotgun whores dream!!!

    • z_merquise

      I like rapid-firing shotgun with explosive rounds. Or just the good ol’ double barrel.

  • Shippoyasha

    Nice to get a sexy/cute gal in there! Playstyle sounds fun too. I just hope it’s not a repeat of Injustice’s Deathstroke in terms of the annoyance level fighting against multiple guns.

  • 9breaker

    Huh If someone told me she was from guilty gear I’d be pretty shocked. But I’m okay with this, I think she adds to the cast which already had tons of variety.

  • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

    (tries to enlarge picture, to no avail)
    Where is CSI when I need them???

  • Suriel Cruz

    Too bad… I can’t see a thing.

  • Tonton Ramos

    Nah I’ll wait for the next GGXRD after sign…

  • Jadfish

    I said it before but… If her hitbox includes those bunny ears imma flip a table

    • TheBlackRabbit

      lol i was just about to mention that comment of yours.

  • Göran Isacson

    Man, announcing DLC chars already? Ah well- while I’m sure that there will be plenty new chars avilable from start in the console release aside from Sin, announcing a DLC, even a free-within-the-first-week DLC before announcing any fan-favorites as free and included with the game… knowing how much salt there is in the fighting community, I do not envy ArcSys for what drama this may stir.

    That aside- gunner characters! Cool addition to the cast, even if I’m more of a close up fighter myself. Also man that is a small pic, does anyone have a larger scan or is this alas what we have to bear with right now?

  • artemisthemp

    Japanese developer really love them DLC character

  • NyaBoy

    Where are Baiken, Testament, Jam, Dizzy, Johnny, Anji ?

    • persona_yuji

      Only THAT MAN knows.

    • ivanchu77

      Dead

    • Demi-Friend

      In GG Xrd sign reload accent core + what not…

      • Tenno Seremel

        GG Xrd #Extend+R *cough*

      • Ni ~Algidus~

        Guilty Gear Xrd #Reload Accent Core Alpha Plus R Extended 3.0

    • Digidyne017

      Really rooting for Jam and Baiken.

    • Ni ~Algidus~

      >Where are Baiken
      Don’t even remember me about it. I’m getting more upset at Ishiwatari

    • RunningWild1984

      On the PSN Store, several years from now.

    • http://moogle-fusilier.tumblr.com Your Other Boyfriend

      Needs more Bridget.

  • Strawberry Starlet

    Oh that lady! She was in pics of the new visual novel wasn’t she? Or was that an image from the console release of xrd… Can’t remember.

    • Suzaku

      Console version’s story mode.

  • Shane Guidaboni

    Would honestly rather have the rest of the old cast. Don’t disappoint me, Arc!

  • Isuke-sama

    A bunny girl uses guns as weapon, reminds me of Chester from Umineko fighting game (except she uses bow).

  • PlatinumMad

    New main. RIP Dizzy.

  • DragKudo

    So what band or singer is she based on.

    • Suzaku

      Guns N’ Roses.

      • DragKudo

        Axl is the representative of Guns N’ Roses.
        Hope she is related somehow

  • Go2hell66

    not feeling it at all. she’s in the wrong game

    • Slayven19

      not really, not with may and briget being in GG series.

    • Miss_Madness

      Guns & Roses

  • ivanchu77

    She reminds a little of ram-chan with the bunny ears… are they related or something?

    • Suzaku

      She’s probably another Valentine. The hat and girls’ fashion motif, plus her hair and face looks an awful lot like the gothic lolita Valentine from GG2.

  • Sion Cruz

    So they finally made this story background character playable?! Awesome, but not surprising. Come on Bridget!

  • Guillermo Oliva III

    I kinda hope they would keep the balance of “weird” and “band-base” on the new characters ,since that is how the original cast were created. Also, please not too basic nor too oddly fashioned….. they have to be really fitting to the other cast and this new character is “ok”.

    • ForteWily

      The truth is… if ASW does that then it would not really fit for Guilty Gear. GG is a little crazy with character designs, it’s been like that since the beginning.

      • Guillermo Oliva III

        Agh… I see~ :S

    • Suzaku

      Guns N’ Roses

  • http://www.lrdalucard.deviantart.com lrdalucard

    My curiosity is more about if it will be localized in europe or not…

  • Yan Zhao

    FPS-esque controls in a fighting game, how is that gona work?

    Either way, new characters are cool and all, but it’d be nice if they brought back the missing cast first.

    • Suzaku

      I’d guess that she has moves where you control crosshairs while she remains stationary.

    • Ni ~Algidus~

      “KB+mouse too OP, nerf pls”
      was the first thing that came to my mind when I read that part of the sentence.

    • mckun

      Can’t bring back Dizzy so someone is going to complain no matter who they bring back.

      Baiken: What about Testament?
      Testament: What about Zappa?
      Zappa: What about A.B.A?
      A.B.A: What about Bridget?
      Bridget: What about Johnny?
      Johnny: What about Dizzy?

      She’s still MIA! Well the hell with this game if all above gets plus Jam DLC! why not retcon! NO BUY!

  • Freakmasta

    Her instant kill better be called Paradise City.

    • GÍlgamesh Goldenking

      O.O Why lol

  • http://www.spaghetti.com Kaisenex

    really getting sick of this dlc crap before release.

  • Astrotrain

    WTF! A DLC character already!? But they haven’t revealed more not-DLC chars for the game. Don’t tell me that Sin is all they’er going to add.

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    I’m starting to get upset at these day one DLC character bullshit on ArcSys fighting games.

    “b-b-but she is free for first print copies! ”

    Yeah, FIRST PRINT COPIES if you buy the game later you’ll still need to purchase her to have all the cast. They could easily put Guns ‘n’ Roses-chan and SIn on the disk

    • Richard N

      Odds are they probably are on the disc, you’re just buying and downloading the unlock code.

      • Pinwheel

        That’s pretty much how it always is, though I don’t really see what you’re trying to say.

        • Richard N

          Ni ~Unreal, was saying how Arc could just put the two characters on the disc instead of making us download them. I was just pointing out that they probably are on the disc and we’re downloading 500KBs just to unlock them. Wasn’t trying to say anything substantial, just pointing out to him how it always is and how it probably is with Xrd.

  • Magus KilIer

    Damn, i was hoping Xrd wouldn’t use the same dlc policies as BBCP

  • Afternoon Intergalactic

    What about -insert forgotten +R character here- ?

  • http://moogle-fusilier.tumblr.com Your Other Boyfriend

    Bridgeeeeeeeeeeeeet~ :(

  • Blesmi

    No Baiken no buy

  • Devola

    According to Yamanaka, it looks like her name is actually Elphelt.

  • FFmax

    The hell, there is no excuse, this game is months away, why are they announcing DLC already?

  • Grayjack

    So what about all the other characters from the previous game? I mean Elphelt sounds cool and all, but I’d prefer having the old characters return. I mean, even Baiken hasn’t been announced and she’s been in GG since the first game.

  • Fainaru Luna

    She’s a Pretty unique fighter with the guns and fps element added into her play style. I wonder when we’ll see some gameplay hope it’s soon.

  • Pdugna

    FPS like controls?? Guess I’ll have to see it in action to fully know.

  • mckun

    Oh lord the Raven fans are going to riot now.

  • Raging Rasta

    People complaining about characters who have yet to return. I personally think you should be happy that you’re getting a new GG at all.

    Kindly shut up and wait.

    (and do I seem to be the only one who doesn’t care that they’re DLC?)

  • Vash bane

    interesting that’s the lady from that one screenshot so now we got a gunner in GG (or has there been one before her)?

    might look at some demo play of the game later (already saw the vid about their finishers …kinda dislike sols form a little)
