Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- has made its debut in arcades, and Day 1 was certainly crazy as tons of arcades were streaming the game. I’m pretty sure at one point, there were five streams going on simultaneously. But before that, ArcSystem Works did a special Day 0 stream with Pachi, Daisuke Ishiwatari, Akira(the Potemkin and Tager player), and Tomomi Isomura who is mostly known for voicing Makoto in Blazblue as well as May’s friend April. The stream had a brief system explanation as well as a tournament featuring ASW staff members! Shoutouts to Kurushii for ripping the video and making it available.
Mikado had a singles tournament on release day, and Jonio had the videos up in record time. The tourney brought back a number of old faces like Nemo and Kusoru so it’s worth a watch, even though everybody is still figuring out stuff. I’ve embedded the full playlist below: it contains 6 videos.
Okayama Fantasista did not have a tournament, but streamed a ton of casual matches on ustream. The stream archive is now available on their Youtube channel! You can see a lot of players trying to figure out stuff here, most notably U-Zen who is mostly playing I-No and Millia.
a-cho did not have a tournament as well. But they did record almost 2 hours worth of casual matches!
