During the Arc System Works Festival taking place in Japan this weekend Arc System Works surprised fans (some fans may not have been surprised), announcing the next title in the hugely popular Guilty Gear franchise. Introducing the uniquely named Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, which will be follow up the 2009 release of Guilty Gear 2: Overture. Set to a trashy Japanese metal tune, Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-'s announcement trailer should leave fans blown away.
"Are you ready to rock?" In Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-'s launch trailer we're once again introduced to the series' popular characters: Sol Badguy and Ky Kiske. The two tango, swinging sword and smiling the entire time. A bit of soft plot fills the introduction, followed by some sweet fighting game action. Mix in some, yes, fully 3D animation and combo moves, along with some anime cutscene and you've got a perfect Japanese fighting game trailer. Plus, a tease at the end!
Arc System Works proudly declares "A New Era Is Coming" with the announcement of Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-. Details are currently scant, and while the trailer has English subtitles, this game is clearly teased for Japanese audiences at this point in time. Hopefully we'll hear more information going into E3.
Thanks for the tip, A Person!
