guilty gear vastedge xt

Big thanks to Hito the translator!

“A half-Gear with the blood of ‘Justice’ in her veins. She has an honest and pure heart, but being a Gear lead to a large bounty being place on her head and her life being in danger. Later as she lived an enjoyable life as one of the Jellyfish Pirates, she fell in love with Ky Kiske and they got together(??). Currently she sleeps deep within Illyria Castle, having become embroiled in a certain incident.”

*(The image is a bit unclear so I’m not sure about the ‘get together’ bit. It looks like 結ばれた maybe but I could be wrong?)

This is what I got from the image:

「ジャスティス」の血を引くハーフギア。素直で純粋な心を持つが、ギアであるが故に多額の賞金を掛けられ、命を狙われていた。後にジェリーフィッ シュ快賊団の一員として楽しい日常を送る中、カイ=キスクと恋に落ち結ばれた。現在はとある事件に巻き込まれイリュリア城の奥深くで眠りに着いている。

I figured not many people are familiar with what a common Gear looks like.

Gears are, as said before, Manufactured, so they often have an ID code that says what Gear Plant (or Company) they are from, and what number in the Production Series they are manufactured from.

There’s more examples of course, but I just thought this was a good example.

Most Gears are deemed “bio weapons”, so they’re not typically used for anything other than military operations or heavy labor (unless they have a will of their own).

Obligatory Guilty Gear “VastEdge” XT Demonstration Video.

Man this thing’s noisy (turn down your volumes).

Takes place between GG2 Overture and GGXrd (2186-2187).

Reportedly new voice actors for Bridget and Slayer (though I’m unsure of whom).

Senato: The Four Sages

(Reposted from here):

元老院とは(国際連合)元老院の略称でローマ教皇の(最高顧問)であり、世界の政治・(経済)に絶対的な発言権と(影響力)を持つ。現在は(四人の賢者)で構成されているが、マスクの下の(素顔)を知る者はいない。

Senato: The Senato [Senate] is an abbreviation of the International Federation Senate and they are the supreme advisers to the Pope of Rome, having the absolute word [right to speak] and influence in matters of international government and economics. It is currently comprised of four sages, but no one has ever seen their faces under their masks.

——————————

Let’s be clear that one of these individuals is named Bardius (With the mask designation: III, as in the 3rd Sage) and has the appearance of a Gear that can summon something called “Cerberus”. (As in, the Tri-Headed Dog of Hell, which could indicate that the other members have 1-Head, 2-Heads, and 4-Heads respectively).

I may have been incorrect in stating these individuals are part of the United Nations, though they wield substantial political power enough to have influence over the U.N., regardless, those are the facts so far.

So ends all the facts, thus far.

——————————
Personal speculation section.
(Not confirming anything, do NOT take these as fact,
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!)
——————————

Call it a crazy hunch, but based on this information there is reason to consider this “Pope of Rome” is actually in fact the Gearmaker (“That Man”) himself!!!

—“That Man” has the appearance of a faceless hooded monastic saint.
—One of the Gearmaker’s themes is atonement.
—Raven refers to him as “His Holiness” (which can also refer to the Pope).
—He refers to himself (towards Sol) as being ‘Self Righteous’ (a facet of the role of an incorruptable role model such as the Papacy).
—In the first Guilty Gear, prior to her death, Justice says to Ky Kiske: “You should meet the Man who created me…I wonder if your unwavering faith in justice would continue if you did…” (Which, based on Ky’s belief in God, could very well overthrow his beliefs and views altogether if he knew someone like the Gearmaker was in a position of Religious standing). 
—“That Man’s” 3rd Servant (minus the hat) bears resemblance to one of these 4 members of the Senato.

Again, this is all speculation, I do not know how things will turn out. Just take the above information posted and digest it as best you can for now. GGXrd is just around the corner.

anonymous asked:

Is there any new information regarding Bardius? Last page of Vastedge thread on dustloop has his profile picture and screen where he uses "Invite Hell" like Eddie. Can it be P.W.A.B's work?

He is part of a mysterious group of four individuals calling themselves the “Senato” who seem to answer to no one save the Pope at Rome.

Based on the story so far, they seem to have been the ones who placed Ky Kiske in the position of King of the United Kingdom of Illyria.

They also seem to be aware of Sol Badguy and Sin (and perhaps even Dizzy as well). Even so, their story has yet to be fully determined.

We’re still trying to piece together VastEdge’s story, since it’s rather disjointed as far as I’m aware.  There’s still no indication that Bardius is a Gear of any kind, yet, since what he summons appears to be Cerberus, rather than simply a Forbidden Beast.

There’s still plenty of loose ends to tie up between GG2, VastEdge, and Guilty Gear Xrd, so you’ll just have to bear with it a bit until we can figure out everything (or at least until Xrd explains it).

anonymous asked:

How much information we have about this "Senato" group at this time? Do you think they are special characters for Vastedge or they can appear in later titles too?

About all I can tell is what I know from the Leaked information and some of the disjointed segments of story I gathered from the Pachislot game itself.

The main character design labeled “ZT13” is named “Bardius” on the official website. Based on his appearance it seems like he is a Gear (though I don’t see a Gear Mark anywhere, so likely he isn’t anything related to the Gearmaker’s handiwork, so probably somehow related to P.W.A.B. since they’re the only group associated with the U.N. who are capable of making Gears). He summons a blue wolf-like Tentacle called “Cerberus” in one of his attacks, which indicates to me he represents “Cerberus the multi-headed Guard-Dog to the Gates of Hell” (though that’s a metaphor, it relates to his appearance at least).

The group “Senato” are labeled as “Genrouin” (げんろういん) or the term for a Romanesque “Senator/Statesman” in the leaked images. They appear to wear skull-like masks that bear Roman Numerals on them along with a trench-coat. So far I have seen “III” and “IV” make an appearance.

Based on a cutscene in the game, they are speaking directly to individuals that were described as “Assassins” and also possibly “Bounty Hunters”. There is also a scene showing Ky holding a Wanted Poster of Sol in an early demonstration.

What this indicates to me is that these mysterious individuals likely put a “bounty” out on Sol and Sin, and are trying to get Bounty Hunters and Assassins to do their dirty work in order to silence them.

The only individuals I am aware of that can place large-scale bounties on others are the members of the United Nations Organization (cited by Ky as being somewhat questionable and mysterious in recent years, not to mention having ties to the Post-War Administration Bureau).

If these individuals are dabbling in Gear technology, then that would explain their appearances…but there is no further information beyond that.

The biopic information we obtained from the game has yet to be translated, so just hold on a bit longer.

Keep in mind, this pachislot game is a very disjointed story, so it’s hard to determine the full sequence of events (or even if it has a full orderly sequence).

I’ll do my best to gather more info as I come across it in the meantime.
