Guilty Gear Xrd Sign’s Limited Edition Will be Delayed

Guilty Gear Xrd Sign is will be releasing in just a few more weeks. Those who have purchased the game’s limited edition, however, will have to wait just a little bit longer.

In a blog post, Aksys Games had this to say: “The limited Edition we created for this title is one of our most complex and unique to date, featuring a US exclusive character book, a key chain, a vocal soundtrack, and premium box made to look like the tome, ‘The Backyard'”. The post continues: “However, we regret to inform our fans that the Limited Edition will be delayed due to the unforeseen strikes at the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach, which have held up key components. Due to the unpredictable nature of the delay, there may be a one to two week postponement of the release of the Limited Edition. Aksys Games takes this matter seriously and will continue to update everyone as soon as we can. We would like to apologize for the delay and inconvenience that this has caused.”

Guilty Gear Xrd Sign is the next entry in the Guilty Gear franchise. The game continues the series fast-paced action, though brings a new look through the use of cel-shaded graphics rather than hand-drawn sprites, allowing for more dynamic camera movement. Guilty Gear Xrd Sign is available in demo form at the moment, though only for those with a PlayStation Plus subscription. Recently videos were released that showed off the game in action (seen here), giving gamers a chance to be able to get a taste of what to expect from the game.

Aksys Games has assured fans that the standard edition of the game will still release on schedule. Guilty Gear Xrd Sign will release on December 16, 2014. The game will be available on the PlayStation 3 and 4.
