Guilty Gear Xrd –Sign- will be released in North America on December 16th, Aksys Games announced via the PlayStation Blog this morning. The game will be available in both standard and limited editions on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

 

Details on the limited edition of the game can be found here.

 

Xrd –Sign- is the first Guilty Gear to use both 2D and 3D presentation. The game runs, surprisingly, on Unreal Engine 3, and speaking with Siliconera, creator Daisuke Ishiwatari said that the engine was actually picked on the basis of what would make it easiest for artists to put data into the game themselves.
