Revolutionary graphics, Overwhelming battle system!
Carrying on the legacy from 1998, comes the newest addition to the Guilty Gear series! All visuals, especially the characters, have been redrawn in full 3D, tweaked to the finest detail and hand-polished by the animation masters to produce the top quality hand-drawn anime effect!
The game’s battle system has also been revamped, with a central emphasis on it’s core system, “Roman Cancel”! Devise your own game plan with this new system, and craft your own battle strategy!
Clash of 17 characters, new and old!
Starting from Sol and Ky, a total of 12 characters from previous Guilty Gear series take to the battle, along with 5 totally new characters having their first appearance in Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign! With Bedman, Sin, Ramlethal, Elphelt and Leo joining the fray, the fight gets more intense!
*Sin, Elphelt and Leo can be unlocked using in-game currency, or they can be easily acquired by purchasing their respective DLCs.
Unique Game Modes

Illustrations and BGMs can be unlocked in the “Gallery Mode”, and players can customize their favorite characters for use in “M.O.M. mode” with different moves from other characters, such as having Ky shoot Gunflame!
The new “Story Mode” takes a unique approach of combining standard Adventure games with TV animation, blended together to unfold the lore of the Guilty Gear.
