It may not be as popular as Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat, but Guilty Gear has always been badass in its own right. If you need proof of that, make sure the watch the newly released opening cinematic for the upcoming arcade version of Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-. Damn, some games, they just own their style so hard. Guilty Gear is one of those hugely impressive games.
Really though, I don't think anyone really understands what the heck is going on in the trailer. Something about a book that holds the world of The Backyard and some unknown evil being released from it. Naturally, only the fighters of Guilty Gear can fend off whatever evil the book has unleashed. I believe the evil is the cute girl towards the middle of the trailer. Yeah, she definitely needs to be dealt with.
Then the metal kicks in! Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- is planned to launch in Japanese arcades later this spring, followed by a release on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 later this year. I'm not entirely persuaded anyone actually needs to play the game, versus simply watching this trailer over and over again for the full effect. Fighting games are much too difficult to play.
