Aside from some extra detail, Faust looks more or less the same. Moveset look untouched as well (as far as inputs go anyway). Good!

*gasp* GG news on eventhubs?

Faust is flippin' us off!

Eternal said on October 28, 2013 at 7:59 a.m.

Awesome, but all I want is my waifu: Baiken. TBH with her being in the game since the first GG I'd be surprised if they left her out.

ElvenShadow is hype.

Awesome, thank you Arc Sys! Faust is a cool character, I like his design. Can we see some of the badass known as Robo-Ky?

Oh no...

Shame, I was expecting Dr. Baldhead back on this game, with so many redesigns...

Which is good.

I'm just waiting for Testament. I miss you Testament.

#17
JustIceRei said on October 28, 2013 at 9:10 a.m.

Axl is actually returning to his old look in GG1. With the short shorts. Xrd I think is set after Overture.

#18
Daedae22 said on October 28, 2013 at 9:12 a.m.

Yes yes we all know this doesn't mean its a good thing IMO.

Look at Faust! Shining and styling!

Ryu confirmed for SF5

they should make Fanny appear in this game!

Awesome! : D
All i need now is ABA!

#23
BlackMasamune said on October 28, 2013 at 9:55 a.m.

Every game that's new and shiny coming out gets coverage. Once it's released, then it's dropped like a hot potato.

#24
Dimensional said on October 28, 2013 at 10 a.m.

Yes Faust and Ino I am happy now.

#25
Xykes said on October 28, 2013 at 10:24 a.m.

Literally the only characters I knew how to play in any GG game.

Phew, that was close!

#26
Kawalorn said on October 28, 2013 at 10:37 a.m.

No she wasn't, it was Chipp, Venom, Potemkin and May. There were only some concept arts but those don't have to mean anything.

I have my Chipp but Dizzy would be very nice too. :D

#27
Eye_of_Orochi said on October 28, 2013 at 10:46 a.m.

YES YES YES! One of my favorite fighting game characters finally gets his reveal. I am fully ready for Xrd now! Love that he looks unchanged, looks and move set wise.

@ maxi2099

Faust and Dr. Baldhead aren't the same person and Baldy hasn't even been in the game since the first. Faust's design is way better and he's still bald under that paper bag (the most interesting part of his design outside of the giant scalpel).

#28
Nader886 said on October 28, 2013 at 11:07 a.m.

YES!

#29
KaboomKid said on October 28, 2013 at 11:15 a.m.

It's cool that he looks about the same. I'm kinda surprised they didn't try to make the paper bag look "haaaardcorrre" with giant straps, zippers, spikes, and gun barrels flaring out the back.

#30
hursh said on October 28, 2013 at 11:35 a.m.

both my characters are in, im stoked!!

#31
Existent said on October 28, 2013 at 11:39 a.m.

Dude, they're clearly the same character.

#32
Eye_of_Orochi said on October 28, 2013 at 12:01 p.m.

They may play the same but they aren't one in the same. They are two separate people. I'm pretty sure this is true unless somebody wants to correct me. I want to say Faust's taunt is just a reference to Baldhead, although he is sti bald himself.

#33
Ninjanuity said on October 28, 2013 at 12:02 p.m.

Faust and Dr. Baldhead are totally the same character. He changed his identity and became Dr. Faust from Guilty Gear X onwards.

#34
Existent said on October 28, 2013 at 12:11 p.m.

They are absolutely one and the same. Bank on it.

#35

#36
rakuko said on October 28, 2013 at 12:37 p.m.

i'm hoping for A.B.A., Jam, and Slayer. Faust is great news though, got "The Original" stuck in my head now.

#37
Eye_of_Orochi said on October 28, 2013 at 1:02 p.m.

Alright if you guys say so. Unlike most people I don't mind being proven wrong, in fact I fully embrace it!

#38
Sol_Goodguy said on October 28, 2013 at 1:07 p.m.

can we finally get to see some new characters? But first, I want my Dizzy... which I'm losing hope on

#39
hazelnut1112 said on October 28, 2013 at 2:40 p.m.

This is great, all we need is Slayer and Johnny confirmed and I have all my mains.

#40
NoizyChild said on October 28, 2013 at 3:15 p.m.

Injustice had coverage for a while before it faded away. Doesn't make sense to keep digging for scraps when there's either no new tech for the game, or hardly anyone playing it to care.

Cemantics said on October 28, 2013 at 4:52 p.m.

I don't agree with all the hype on this. By that I mean them confirming the usual cast.....

On a side note, GOD DAMN I can't wait until this comes out.

#44
Pachendrix said on October 28, 2013 at 4:52 p.m.

HELL YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!! Let the legendary ass stabs begin!!!!!

Chrisuchiwa said on October 28, 2013 at 4:53 p.m.

Finally they announced my character, I am so glad. I can say now, I am sure I will be playing this game.

#46
Pachendrix said on October 28, 2013 at 4:54 p.m.

Totally agree main cast shouldn't ever get "hype reveals" because they're the main freaking cast. But I just HAVE to make an exception for Faust.

#47
Eye_of_Orochi said on October 28, 2013 at 5:10 p.m.

@ 44

With how many games have cut characters over the years (KOF is all over the place with this, Killer Instinct won't start with all of its mainstays including the character who graced the covers of the past games, SF3 series, Marvel not including who most would think are givens to be included like MegaMan and Cyclops, SOUL CALIBUR 5) I say we have every right to be excited.

I've been screwed so many times out of my main characters I was legitimately afraid that Faust wouldn't make it in.

whoa. Faust looks like a pimp in this artwork!

#50
Gerk said on October 28, 2013 at 6:05 p.m.

Looks like Faust has a new move (up in pogo stance.)

Unless I'm mistaken.

#51
Gobbleguck said on October 28, 2013 at 7:33 p.m.

Axl had shorts in the first Guilty Gear on PSone, so it's really just a throw back look. I can do without Millia's hat though...Potemkin's look seems very third reich however, but then again the look of Zepp soldiers and the name Zepp itself are very german so...I guess I officially can't be bothered by it...but I is

#52
Yung said on October 28, 2013 at 8:02 p.m.

Wow, his head is really really small.

#53
dukemagus said on October 28, 2013 at 8:18 p.m.

Say... you're the same xykes that do the "Milk Chocolate vs the world" series? because thet one is great. Really fun to see!

Do you have any plans of expanding the idea?

#54
Wedge said on October 28, 2013 at 9:11 p.m.

FAUST SO KAWAIIIII. Oh no wait, he still looks pretty much like Faust. Cool.

#55
PurplePonyJotaro said on October 28, 2013 at 10:43 p.m.

GOING MY WAY!

Stef_Science said on October 29, 2013 at 3:54 a.m.

Is your whole purpose of posting on this site to simply point out that it is unfair that Capcom games get all the attention while other games just as good, if not better get ignored? If so then please allow me to thank you and assure you that your message has been received, and understood, the last 100 times you have posted it. I only hope you are not as redundant and diffuse in your real life, it comes across as slightly boring.

#57
Kawalorn said on October 29, 2013 at 7:23 a.m.

Faust's Story Guilty Gear XX. Venom references Fausts bloody past and names him "Dr Ba-" before Faust slaps him and says he forsaken that name. Also Faust is bald since May is afraid of him and she can "sense" bald people. Faust also asks Venom why did thye "kill the girl" clearly refferencing the girl whose death made BAldhead mad in the first place. We also know that the girl died because of the Assassin's guild. There you go.

Slayer, the character I've been waiting for!

Orichalkos said on October 29, 2013 at 7:30 a.m.

I rather have that then hearing more on KI (more power to those who actually like that)

#60
Kurow said on October 29, 2013 at 7:41 a.m.

Why people are "suprised" about these characters being in the game? it is like no Chun Li, Guile or Zangief in a SF game *kappa*

#61
Sanox said on October 29, 2013 at 8:24 a.m.

the KI debacle probably scared people with not having all the old cast ready at launch

#62
ChipsLight said on October 29, 2013 at 8:32 a.m.

Too bad he doesn't have his Pach.inko Design, it was really awesome.

EDIT : lol, eventhubs doesn't authorise pach.inko. :T

#63
LarsMasters said on October 29, 2013 at 8:35 a.m.

So... It was her all along while being mentioned in GG2.

#64
Kenshiro said on October 29, 2013 at 8:38 a.m.

Not really the same. People were more worried about the designs of the returning cast.

To my knowledge no one has been dropped from this game's roster altogther.

#65
Razberryclownsac said on October 29, 2013 at 9:03 a.m.

I got Chipp, now I'm just waiting for Baiken. Wonder if they'll change her much or keep the same look. And do they not have instant kills anymore?

#66
ryuhayabusa13 said on October 29, 2013 at 9:07 a.m.

Maybe "That man" will be the boss in this game this time around.

giru017 said on October 29, 2013 at 9:13 a.m.

Shame that the awesome pach!nko Slayer isn't the official one... Well, here's hope for alt costume or console DLC

The censoring built into this site is baffling sometimes.

I don't care about any other character now that Slayer is in.

#70
SHAZAMforInjustice said on October 29, 2013 at 9:26 a.m.

Slayer: the most basada fg character imo(which id superior kappa).

#71
slayereyez said on October 29, 2013 at 9:32 a.m.

Next to Akuma i would agree that slayer is among the most bad a$$ in fg's

#72
FlexingBum said on October 29, 2013 at 11:21 a.m.

The fact that Slayer made the cut is baffling. This has to be an indication that Xrd is gonna have a decently large roster because Slayer is one of the most unpopular characters in their previous games.

#73
HeatEXTEND said on October 29, 2013 at 11:48 a.m.

Uh........what ?

this is what I've been waiting for. slayer the don

#75
Rye_Aka_SekaiSenshi said on October 29, 2013 at 12:11 p.m.

Faust and Dr Baldhead are the SAME person. He got released from prison by Testament and entered Testament's tournament after going insane cause he thought HE killed a girl during a operation and blamed himself and went on to be a serial killer. But then he found out that it wasn't his fault and so he changed his identity to Faust in the X series to atone for his sins and help cure people.

#76
Keldeo said on October 29, 2013 at 12:17 p.m.

Slayer is a boss!

#77
bigjbilly said on October 29, 2013 at 3:36 p.m.

I just bought ^C+r today because I thought Faust looked like a godd@mn maniac from his new artwork and I needed to play him. Fun stuff, I've never played a GG game before today.

#78
Gemakai said on October 29, 2013 at 5:28 p.m.

Well - GG guilty gear, you have the best character ever now so I have no reason to not get you.

Well played.

Both my go to characters have been announced witch is I-NO & KY. . . Screw everyone else.

courte said on October 29, 2013 at 8:34 p.m.

just waiting on zappa

actually i haven't even been paying attention to whether or not these arts add up to that pachiinko game stuff

no eventhubs why i was not trying to make a racial slur... fine. i'll just call in pachislot

#81
TagAnarchy said on October 29, 2013 at 10:10 p.m.

.....I want you to re-evaluate that sentence and go back to some GG archives. They were full of Slayer players.

Don't you have eyes in the back of your head?

#83
bigjbilly said on October 30, 2013 at 8:15 a.m.

Pretty much the same movelist for Faust at least. Will there still be instant kills? I don't see it in the moveslist.

#84
Eye_of_Orochi said on October 30, 2013 at 11:11 p.m.

Thanks for the info everyone. I was still unsure if Faust was BH or not.
