Arc System Works' fighting games Guilty Gear Xrd Sign will come to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in North America on Dec. 16, publisher Aksys Games announced on Thursday, two weeks after the game debuts in Japan.

Guilty Gear Xrd Sign will come in both standard and limited editions. The premium versions of the game, which cost $20 more than their standard edition counterparts, include a special embossed and foiled box; the Guilty Gear Xrd Sign Vocal Collection, a 10-track song disc; the Guilty Gear Codex art book; and a keychain designed as a replica of Sol Badguy's belt buckle.

The cast of the new Guilty Gear includes a range of returning characters, as well as new fighters Bedman — a character who battles with a bed — and Ramlethal Valentine. Another fighter, Elphelt, is available as downloadable content and will be free at launch day, but only for a limited time.

Guilty Gear Xrd Sign runs on Unreal Engine 3, using 3D character models to replicate the series' hand-drawn 2D animation. You can see it in action in the new trailer below.
