Arc System Works will produce and sell high-quality framed art from its game titles, starting with the Guilty Gear series. The first wave of the Arc System Works Art Archives project will feature key visuals from Guilty Gear Strive and Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign-. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
The Japanese game publisher will work with Dai Nippon Printing to produce quality prints using the latter’s Primo Art technology. It uses 10-color ink to print digital art with higher color accuracy. Arc System Works will sell these arts at 33,000 yen (~$300).
The Guilty Gear Strive and Xrd -Sign- framed art will each be available in two variations, one with a signature from Daisuke Ishiwatari and the other without. The items will be completely made to order. After closing pre-orders on June 27, 2021, Arc System Works and Dai Nippon Printing will process each item individually. They will deliver the finished products based on the purchasing order from late August 2021 to September 2021.
Pre-orders of the items are available through the Shibuya Tsutaya Online Shop. However, the Japanese webpage explicitly stated in English that “no overseas shipping is available.”
Arc System Works will officially release Guilty Gear Strive, the latest title in its flagship fighting game series, for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC on June 11, 2021. The company has also revealed a schedule for the first season pass DLC characters, with the first one set to appear in July 2021.
