Guilty Gear has many revisions over the years, adding new characters and constant adjustments. But now it’s time for a brand new installment in the Guilty Gear series, with a different look to go with it.
The Arc System Works Festival took place today in Yokohama Pacifico venue. While this event also covered Arc System Works’ other games like Blazblue and Persona 4 Arena, it was the announcement of a new Guilty Gear game that took center stage.
This new entry, titled Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, shows off fan favourites Sol and Ky duking it out, as well as the new engine that the game is running on. Using Unreal Engine 3, Xrd manages to replicate the look of 2D sprites using 3D models. It looks great, and the way they emulate the feel of 2D animation by lowering the framecount is impressive. It’ll be interesting to see what the rest of the cast looks like using this style!
If you’re a fan of 2D fighters – why not try the excellent Yatagarasu, the 2D fighter from ex-SNK developer Hotapen.
It’s available on the Rice Digital Store right here.
