Fans of the Guilty Gear series were met with some disappointing news today. After a brief comparison between the Japanese and North American cover art for the upcoming Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, American internet users were quick to notice that their version of the title would be gracing them with slightly less “fan service.”
While at first both covers appear to be identical, a careful eye can find that a particular set of, um, fleshy mounds is concealed by a bit more clothing than its Asian counterpart. There is no word on whether any in-game models have been changed, but this is certainly worrying for those that enjoy slivers of chest.
On a brighter note, pre-order bonus sets were also announced for the game’s Japanese release. Bonus items will vary depending on the store holding the reservation. For example, Japanese video store Geo is offering a clear folder with some of the game’s artwork, and online hobby shop Amiami is throwing in a free mouse pad. More details and images can be found on the games official website.
