A demo for Guilty Gear Xrd Sign was released today. The demo is only available to those with a PlayStation Plus account. The demo allows players to fight with main characters Sol Badguy or Ky Kiske.

The fifth entry in the Guilty Gear series, Guilty Gear Xrd Sign is a 2D fighting game utilizing the Unreal Engine 3. The game will feature 17 characters, including Elphelt. She will not be the only DLC character, as another will appear later. Guilty Gear Xrd Sign takes place in the year 2187, one year after the previous game, Guilty Gear 2: Overture. The game’s roster comprises mostly of previous fighters, though there are a few newcomers, such as Elphelt. Production of the game had begun in 2011, but it was not until 2012 that the game progressed into full scale production. The game first released in arcades in Japan in February, with this release being the game’s first appearance in America. The game has gone from hand-drawn 2D sprites to cel-shaded graphics, a first in the series.
Guilty Gear Xrd Sign releases on December 16th for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 systems.
