Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- Location Test Video Round-Up

By on August 12, 2013 at 9:15 am

As we’re sure many of you are aware, Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- saw its first arcade location test take place at Sega Akihabara 1 in Tokyo, Japan over the weekend. While players are usually discouraged from taking video from these events, this hasn’t stopped a few brave souls from covertly doing so.

First up, we have a batch of videos from aristobule, who was the first to post any sort of video from the event on YouTube.

Next we have some video taken by wx3873.

For those interested, be sure to check out our previous coverage with early test impressions and photos of the game.

D3v has worn many hats within the general fighting game community. The self proclaimed "Asian white boy" from the Philippines has done everything from arcade stick modification to match commentary. When not writing for Shoryuken's front page, D3v spends part of his time running tournaments in the Philippines, including the country's biggest fighting game event, Manila Cup.

    Immense respect for these guys taking these vids since they could very easily get banned if they aren’t careful. Because of them it allows us and players all over to see what Arc is doing, and it looks fantastic so far.

    I always fail to understand why they would “punish” people for filming this? I mean if you were making a new game wouldn’t you want to have as MUCH free advertisement as possible ?

    • d3v

      I believe it’s because the arcade wants people to actually go there to see the game in action.

      • GO4PRO

        Well unfortunately the rest of the world can’t make it :/ If I were in glorious Nippon I would never even consider not going to play the game and instead just wait for videos to be uploaded.

      The arcade wants people to come in to play and Arcsys doesn’t want to be promoted with early footage that may or may not show the game in a good light. When Arcsys gets to a later stage of development, then they will be fine with the free advertisement.

        Or have some really stupid game breaking glitches in their unfinished project like they did with Playstation Allstars, and some Recent Killer Instict footage.

  • GO4PRO

    I hope you all are doing your part and downloading these videos because we all know they will eventually be taken down, haha.

  • Sockbat25

    My one fear, is that how many versions of guilty gear Xrd will there be when the dust settles

    • Barlton Canks

      Was that a pun?

      • Sockbat25

        If they release like 4 different versions of this game, i think some people will burst with anger……ok i’ll stop now

    So even when it’s off screen the game is awesome!

  • aseomoc

    Hmm, lets hope this game is not ps3 only. I hope it gets a multiplatform release and Steam…

  • Milton Martinez

    this game is gonna make street fighter and all the other games a run for their money… the king is back and it’s guilty gear.

  • awwnuts07

    Aint’t gonna lie, I would buy this just for the way it looks. It’s hard to believe these AREN’T 2d sprites.

  • All links are broken now 🙁
