Never thought I'd ever be jealous of a book...heheh.
Okay, Next-Gen fighters are coming in the near future, even though not all fighting game companies have revealed their cards. One of the confirmed coming new beat 'em ups is ArcSystemWorks' latest and seemingly greatest installment of their much-beloved Guilty Gear series. Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN will be coming to arcades before heading to PS4 and presumably XBOne eventually. The game has impressed me with some truly dynamic angles with its cinematic cutscene-ingame attacks, and manic action that the series is known for. Sadly none of the existing female characters in the game- including the truly delectable Milia is barefoot, leaving footfans a bit high and dry with this new brawler.
Well, fear not! Apparently there will be a barefooted beauty in the game after all. The prospective unshod lovely is none other than Ramletherl Valentine, a new character recently introduced in the game's Arcade Version Opening Cinematic (posted below).
Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN's cinematic intro (Arcade)
Ramletherl is apparently the game's Final Boss and one tough cookie! She is currently supposedly a non-playable character but many speculate she'll be a usable fighter eventually, perhaps in the console versions. Anyway, when I first saw this super-powered boss (via the interesting angle we get in the Opening), I had thought she was wearing sandals. Well, apparently this is NOT the case, and as the artwork above shows (I am not sure if the art is official, but it certainly looks of high enough quality to be so), Miss Valentine has some kind of strapless plates attached to the top part of her feet, but otherwise there is nothing else on them- making her effectively barefoot. Her beautiful looks and cute voice are enchanting, and her sudden burst of menace at the end of her speech makes me intrigued at her character. All that plus I am wanting to give those toes and soles of her a thorough kissing. Heheh...
Nice to finally look forward to a Guilty Gear game for a change- heck, the only other barefoot character in the damn game is male, dammit. Whew! I'll keep on this like a hawk and try to get more images of Valentine that show off her lovely assets. Stay tuned!
