Guilty Gear is Back With Some Very Impressive Visuals

Arc System Works announced their latest game: Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- today. This is the first new big entry in the Guilty Gear franchise since 2007 and also the third entry to be published by SEGA.

This new title uses Epic’s Unreal Engine, they used the engine to give the game a 2D sprite look in a 3D world, which like the video above shows looks pretty damn impressive. No release date or platforms have been announced yet, but you can probably expect it to be released in Arcades as well as on consoles.

    Looks neat. Whats SEGAs involvment with this anyway? I thought it was strange untill at the last second i saw the logo

    VERY unexpected to see the world of Guilty Gear return. Not bad though! I hope to see the hard rock themed soundtrack given another whirl as opposed to the classical/organ/metal mix of Blazblue. Both of which I love, to be sure.

    And of course, Arc Sys is sticking to their 2D sprite fighting game guns.

    sorry, I just heard the game uses 3D models, not sprites, still looks nice but Ky ponytail sucks

    Just hope it doesn’t come like Blazblue, in which half of the game is DLC.

    I really don’t mean to comment-bomb this story, but I’m wondering why and how SEGA came to publish this title? I love the hell out of Guilty Gear and if it’s actually some awkward part of SEGA’s stable that’s totally fine by me, but I just had no idea about this sort of arrangement.

    Looks awesome. I played the hell out of Guilty GearX on the Dreamcast. The graphics, character design, metal overtone was just the coolest. Glad to see something new in the series. Even cooler that SEGA publishes it.

    Sammy use to own the license. When they merged with Sega, Sega took over many of the sammy IPs including GUILTY GEAR. The series is now in some sort of odd co ownership deal where Arc owns some of the GG ip and Sega/sammy owns the other half. Even then sega has been distrubuting all the GG console titles under their partnership scheme. Also this is the third GG title to be published by Sega. You missed out the PSP title that was also published by Sega.
