More Gameplay Details, Screenshots Emerge for Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-‘s Elphelt

By on September 11, 2014 at 9:15 am

After divulging the first details on Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- newcomer Elphelt in their magazine, Famitsu has posted a new online preview of this interesting gunslinger. While much of the info in the preview is the same, it does bring with it a small amount of gameplay details as well as a bunch of new screenshots.

According to Gematsu, using Elphelt’s firearms as soon as she draws them will result in some damage and pushback, while allowing her to wield them for a longer period of time will build up their capabilities, effectively changing the character’s stance and strengthening her further.

These screenshots help give a better picture of her mechanics, such as her aiming when using her rifle – Miss Travailler.

We also get to see some of what she can do when using her shotgun – Miss Confire.

Finally, we have a shot of what her reload move looks like.


Of course, this isn’t all that was shown by Famitsu; you can see the rest of the screen shots in the gallery below.

In addition, they also showed a few screenshots of Sin – the game’s other downloadable character.

Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- is set to release on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in Japan on December 4.

    So a ditsy wedding-themed girl? Totally not a trope.

    • Christian Thompson

      Shes a ode to Guns and Roses

      • Freakmasta

        I better see her move be called “You Could Be Mine” if she’s gonna be wedding theme.

        • I_made_this_account_to_post_th

          Actually she has “You could be mine” written on her dress

          • Freakmasta

            Oh wow. I didn’t catch that.

      • Gethoff Mahfacebuk

        They already got Axl in the game. This is just an excuse for highly excessive anime.

        • Emezie Okorafor

          Since when did ArcSys need an excuse to be more anime? Japan INVENTED anime, and they aren’t ashamed of it. So they need no “excuses”.

          • WlNBACK

            The same way reasons should’ve been provided for why later Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and Alien/Predator films were pieces of shit.

            Speaking of pieces of shit, glad to see you defending forgettable anime garbage as usual.

          • Guest

            Oh fuck you Elphelt is better than Lucina, Dark Pit, Toon Link, and Dr. Mario in every way possible unique and not a clone!

        • Dan McDermott

          it is an excuse to make Dizzy but less cool

          • Blackjustin13

            Damn it,now I’m mad again XD thanks for reminding me to learn a new character….

      • Dan McDermott

        I think Axel Rose would be displeased

      • In addition to Axl Low. ;] I wonder if any other bands are represented multiple times over throughout the series.

    • Sincerely, The Jerk

      Plot twist: It’s a dude! [yo but if in the story mode she is revealed to be I’m gonna claim I called it]

  • Aphelion

    She looks like she’ll be a “blast” to play. Eh? Eh? I’ll let myself out…..

  • RunningWild1984

    Her design is lame. What I want to know though is how the hell do you pronounce her name?

    • I_made_this_account_to_post_th

      Her design is pure love, also I don’t see how you can have problems with the pronounciation, use the google translate voice thingy

      • RunningWild1984

        Google translate voice isn’t really helping, I can barely understand it.

        • TiredOcean

          “Ell-felt”. That’s it.

      • Dan McDermott

        Her design is anime tropes

        • peter her

          Its called finally catching up or getting with the times.

          • Dan McDermott

            yeah man we need like more characters like this man more unoriginal crap like Phyrra man! These are the best man, let’s not try to do a character with actual depth or anything different let’s just repackage one man.

            this is why anime sucks now

          • peter her

            Nah anime really doesnt suck you just have to find good ones.

          • Dan McDermott

            Oh there are good ones but pretty much all the big ones I see these days suck
            First I will air out all the bad then get to the good
            like Kill La Kill, Attack on Titian( could sit here and tell you everything that makes this horrible, from the plot to the 1 dimensional characters), Chode Gayass star Le Douche and his marry band of genocidal maniacs, Bleach, Lucky Star(this anime actually made me stop watching anime for a good few years) Fairy Tail, Gurren,Gundam Seed, Gundam 00 Kassern and I am sure I am forgetting a few dozen

            good ones
            Berserk, Classic Gundam, G Gundam, Getter Robo series(the thing Gurren steals from) Mazinger, Fist of the North Star, Dragon Ball, Yuy Yu Hakusho, One Piece, Digimon seasons 1 2 and 5, Kenshin, Kenichi The Mightiest Disciple and many others I am probably for getting

            This character type is mostly in the crap field above…actually only

          • peter her

            Gotta stop having old man syndrome and actually start watching the shows rather than reminisce about, oh this anime is the shit and nothing can beat vs anime always coming out every season having bigger budgets in terms of animation and top quality seiyuus( voice actors). Forgot that people like you are still stuck in action junkie land start taking a break and start watching some slice of like, josei, and comedy for once.

    • Quan Chi

      I agree. I can’t stand fighting games with ppl with dresses on and the cutsie wootsie crap. They are fighting for God’s sake 😛
      They are already pushing it with the artist change with the lazy style anime.

      • Emezie Okorafor

        I know, right? This is a fighting simulator, after all! What do they think this is? Some form of “artistic expression”? Some sort of “fantasy setting”?

        IMO, every fighting game from now on should resemble MMA or boxing. Every character is a male of similar height and weight wearing shorts. EVERY SINGLE ONE. But, get this…YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE THE COLOR OF THEIR SHORTS. Wow. Exciting. And, REALISTIC.

    • No_Limitz

      El Fuerte

    • Guest

      Design is cool unlike Lucina

  • CptPokerface

    I find it hilarious that people are complaining about the classic Guilty Gear characters being so metal and hardcore. They may kind of have a point with characters like Sol and Justice..but were Jam, Robo Ky, Bridget, Anji Mito, Faust, and Dizzy really all that metal to begin with?

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying this new character is amazing or not either, but aside from the music, some character designs and story elements, it wasn’t that hardcore and brutal.

    • LightSpdAeon

      I’m pretty sure Robo Ky was hella metal.

      • CptPokerface

        Lol I knew someone would say that.

        • Dan McDermott

          Dizzy’s wings are a metal cover to be honest

    • TiredOcean

      Don’t forget May.

      • CptPokerface

        How the hell did I forget May?

    • Blackjustin13

      What kind of madman would complain about that?

  • Keaneth Jefferson

    Jam? Baiken?

  • EvilBuny

    Her name is pronounced “El-Felt” for those who are having trouble.
    As for the character the only thing I hope is that she isn’t cheap. Either way I’ll be rocking Bedman as my main.

    As for people complaining about the amount of characters to play. Lets be real a fighting game doesn’t need 20-30 playable characters to be good. We just need a BALANCED roster. Unless you guys really want a “Dan” in this game aka…a character that is so low tier you wonder why they made it.

  • Bloodmeat

    Still waiting for my Jam and Baiken.

  • BalmungX

    So Sin is DLC ? i saw that he could be unlocked in the game,but it seems i was wrong

    • James Reilly

      You could unlock Sin via story but he also has a download pass if you want him right away like how Kagura was handled in BB CP.

      • BalmungX

        Understood,what about elfelt ? the english version is going to be like the japanese one,being pre-order DLC?

    • d3v

      You can also unlock him in game. It’s just that there’s an option to buy him if you could care less about playing singleplayer.

      • Johnny Donuts

        couldn’t care less*

      • BalmungX

        Understood,thanks for the answer

  • Yassine Karma

    I’m a huge anime fan and still can’t take her design. Seems out of place compared to the rest of the cast.

    • Dan McDermott

      I am an anime fan too but she is based on that anime the tropes waify waifu character type (or as I call it The Fluttershy) that everyone is obsessed with at the moment

    • Guest

      Lucina is out of place…

      • Catacul

        Lucina isn’t even in this game. Go with your trolling elsewhere.

        • Guest

          STFU clone lovah

  • peter her

    People can say all they want about what she represents but its still daisuke playing ketchup with the current trends in anime like the awe inspired unoriginal character design itself. If people say this is new its not, there are alot characters that have her features anime wise.

    • Andrew Olson

      Ketchup is definitely a condiment.

      • peter her

        Yeah it is and you should catch up to realize that hes finally just getting into current gen anime character designs.

    • Dan McDermott

      there is a character with most of her features in Guilty Gear already. Nobody important just DIZZY so you know just a side character

  • Sasuke Uchiha

    I really fail to see why everyone is making a big deal out of this. Whenever I play a fighting game, doesn’t matter what series it is, I look at two things: the character, and the character’s movesets. I care more about their movesets than their character design. Disliking a Guilty Gear character, (or any arc system character for that matter) because they look too “Anime-ish” is a very contradicting mindset. Most games published by arc system have an anime like characters to them. Even Guilty Gear, I fighting game series with a “rock-and-roll” art style had an anime design to them in the end. Just a rock-and-roll version, but because this character looks to “anime-ish” everyone want to flip their sh*t about it? I’m sorry, but I’m not buying it. The ONLY thing I don’t like about this character, is her contradicting background. She loves to talk about romance and relationships, and is completely against killing, yet she has a rifle, and a shotgun, lol. That is the only thing I find wrong with this character. Other than that, she is fine. Please if you think I’m wrong I would love to hear your reason why.

    • Doppio1089

      But it is in that contradictory that makes her kind of cool!

      • Sasuke Uchiha

        Oh, don’t get me wrong. I love this character, it just that this was for those against her character design, that’s all. Since Baiken is not in…..sniff, I intend to main this one. Her movesets sound unique to me.

        • Doppio1089

          I’ll be playing Sol Badguy. Just because Testament ain’t in it. Do want to try the four new characters though.

  • MikoSenpai

    Wait, people are in that much denial Guilty Gear was always generic straight to video action anime with a heavy metal twist than the other way around?

  • Andrew Olson

    Oh come on, it’s just one character out of an entire roster and you’re mad about it? Psh

  • Gojira Twit

    My only problem with her is that ultra-saccharine moemoe profile makes me want to vomit (thanks for not reprinting it over here, btw)

    • H_Magnus

      But how else are people going to know that she’s A PURE AND PERFECT WAIFU!?

      You know, besides the dress…

  • void

    i need to see her in action.

  • samirerre

    its kinda wierd to see a childlike girl with a crush on ky, after all he has a kid if im not mistaken,and a wife

  • Dan McDermott

    Here is our new DLC character in our game with less then HALF the roster of characters but you know anime hipsters will still like us because we are a “Small” company even if our DLC costs more then even COD at the end of the day

  • Guest

    Elphelt and Celica is better than Lucina and her clone army!

  • Guest


    • The struggle is real

      You know I would play this game regardless of its over the top character designs. However, I will probably never be able to play this game, due to the fact that Arc System works is run by idiots who don’t see a profit in the PC market.

    • Sasuke Uchiha

      Lol Lucina.

  • swordsman09

    I think most of you are looking at her design the wrong way. If you look at it the way it was intended, a homage to Guns N Roses, it’s a cool design that had a lot of thought put into IMO, and I personally don’t think she overdoes the anime stereotype like Celica or Marie since she can sorta fight. Guns are cool I guess.

    Oh and in case some of you don’t know, her theme is titled, “Welcome to the Jungle.”

  • heatEXTEND


  • Albirieo

    Ha… Gunbunny.

  • JRtMcGee

    lol Guns n’ Roses

  • kaede_rukawa

    Why this girl and not Jam?! Why?!

  • RazingPhoenix

    I just want to see the Ramlethal vs. Elphelt intro already (they have to have a specific one, don’t play with my emotions ArcSys).
