When Guilty Gear creator Daisuke Ishiwatari stated in an interview that the quirky fighting series had drawn to a close -- in favor of the hipper BlazBlue -- some wondered how long this decision would stick.
Not long, as it turns out. During his visits to fighting game tournaments in Cannes and London, Ishiwatari found himself among Guilty Gear fans, and when asked whether a new Guilty Gear game would ever see the light of day, the man said, "Let's just say you won't be disappointed."
Well, that's pretty reassuring. Ishiwatari went on to say, "When that new Guilty Gear will come? I honestly don't know -- not because I can't tell you, but because I really don't know -- but it will happen eventually!"
And no, he's not just referring to re-releases like the recent Guilty Gear XX Accent Core PLUS Collector's Edition for Europe. He actually means a new game.
