The more rabid Guilty Gear fans out there are all probably familiar with a Japanese arcade by the name of Mikado, but for those who aren’t in the loop, here’s the main thing you need to know: they play Guilty Gear there, and they play it very well. Mikado is host to some of the best talent in the world, and they stream and record their tournaments quite often to show it off. With such a pool of strong players, it only makes sense long exhibition sets are going to occur, and yesterday saw a pretty good first-to-ten Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- set go down in the revered game center.
The first player to introduce here is somebody we’ve discussed before: Ogawa. He left a trail of bodies during his visit to Northwest Majors 7, and he is still continuing to power through players back home with his trademark Zato-1. The player he faces in this set goes by the name of Sharon, who made a name for themselves back in the days of Accent Core with Baiken. Unfortunately, their main didn’t make it into the Xrd roster, but they still managed to power to the top of the arcade rankings with Ramlethal Valentine and have since begun to climb the charts with the newly-released Elphelt Valentine.
If you missed out on their live broadcast, you’ll find an archive below. Give it some love and let us know what you think.
