The second location test for Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- is happening this weekend! I’ll be updating this post periodically as more information becomes available. Since the first test, 4 characters have been added to the roster: Axl, I-No, Faust, and Slayer. There is now more information available on the different roman cancels: Yellow RC costs 25% meter, and is only available for certain moves on whiff. They can only be performed during a move’s active frames. Purple RCs are 50%, and they show up when an RC is attempted on a whiffed move that is not YRCable, or on a move’s recovery frames. Finally, there are the red RCs, which show up when an a non projectile move connects with the opponent. There is also a new system mechanic called Blitz Shield that is pretty much a parry. It costs 25% meter, and is performed by pressing two buttons for the high version, and down + two buttons for the low version.
If any shaky cam videos surface from this 2nd loke test, they’ll be posted in the Dustloop Xrd Video posting thread so be sure to check that.
Here is a list of sites currently running articles on the 2nd wave of location tests, with lots of nice pictures.
EDIT: Some short videos have appeared! Since ASW is fairly strict when it comes to recording from location tests, these will probably get taken down very soon so watch them while you can.
