Over 50 location test screenshots for Guilty Gear Xrd, showcasing Ky, Sol, Milia, Potemkin, Chipp, May and Venom

Posted by Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor • August 9, 2013 at 8:14 a.m. PDT
It's been a long time since we got a fully new Guilty Gear game, and with Guilty Gear Xrd finally being on the way, ArcSys performed a location test in Akihabara, Tokyo today, from which we have tons of screenshots.

In the screenshots, you'll be able to see old favourites Ky, Sol, Milia, Potemkin, Chipp, May and Venom duking it out, and hopefully this will give you an impression of what the game will be like, at least from a visual standpoint. We'll start you off with a few pictures below.

Looks good far way. Looks mediocre up close.

Seriously, is there any fighting game protagonist that's cooler then Sol?

It's a real shame that the Guilty Gear series has such low popularity in europe (or atleast the northern part...), but hopefully this game will change it, atleast I hope so.

I bet there will be alot of complaints that it will be "the same" as the old ones with just some updated graphics.
Really looking forward to see how smooth they will integrate the 3D views with the 2D ones.
If they pull it off right, this might be the best looking fighter up to date.
I really wish the best for this game.

Venom looking fabulous as usual.

@ 9
I bet on Kyo Kusanagi (although, sadly KoF is not something big on European regions too).

#11
BoscaBat said on August 9, 2013 at 9:07 a.m.

Visuals like these have the potential to attract non fighting game fans.

i am a huge fan of this series but i feel like they need to give this game a rest already try something new. i love the art work and their attempt to use the 3d with 2d but i feel this game is past its time. all guilty gears have been the same, y wouldnt they just do it all in 3rd like ssf4

#13
JiFoJoka said on August 9, 2013 at 9:24 a.m.

@9 (Troppop)

I REALLLLLLY hope that the global release dates are close. I hate how delayed Europe dates are, like Persona 4 Arena was over half a year later and GGXXblah still isn't on PSN Europe.

Fun fact, I think an old video mentioned that it takes time due to HUGE translations. Let's hope that it's not an issue for this and BBCP. ;_;

@13

What? Give this game a rest? The series has been MIA for a while now (with blazblue kinda being its spiritual successor)

What exactly did ssf4 have all in 3d? Both are 2d fighters with 3d character models.

Please, stop posting.

Dravidian said on August 9, 2013 at 9:34 a.m.

@13:....you mean like BB....and the several years it's been since we've had a GG that wasnt a balance update?

Its so beautiful!
Man I've never been so hype before. I really wish i didn't know about this game until the game was 70% complete.
And to think their working on a new GG and BB game.
Arc your a machine!

#20
SgtKonus said on August 9, 2013 at 10:08 a.m.

Eff Capcom, how could Venom get into GG but noth UMVC3? Kappa

No but the game looks sick! I am not a huge fan of Arcsys games but this looks hype!

#21
ShinAkiraDesu said on August 9, 2013 at 10:26 a.m.

Awesome, cant wait for this game, looks hype as hell.

#22
geoomega said on August 9, 2013 at 10:34 a.m.

I just keep telling to myself this aint 3d graphics right!

#23
Abbadon36 said on August 9, 2013 at 10:37 a.m.

#24
StriderSpinel said on August 9, 2013 at 10:44 a.m.

#25
Deyrax said on August 9, 2013 at 10:50 a.m.

Looks pretty cool, Potemkin's re-design is awesome.

#26
JdotSweapA said on August 9, 2013 at 11:01 a.m.

Wish Potemkin didn't have those dumb looking clamp feet, other than that, he looks like a total beast!

#27
Kawalorn said on August 9, 2013 at 11:12 a.m.

#25 Venom's face can be seen clearly during his jumping animation and and during Faust's "Afro" Destroyer in XX so there isn't much secret there. :P He is damn pretty though.

#28
Devdan said on August 9, 2013 at 11:42 a.m.

Ug, I've always really disliked that winpose of May's where she twirls around with her friend. Dunno why, it should be cute but it isn't, and I wish it would go away.

...everything else looks nice though!

mblaze27 said on August 9, 2013 at 12:19 p.m.

kreiden123 said on August 9, 2013 at 1:48 p.m.

#33
geoomega said on August 9, 2013 at 1:50 p.m.

There are some really stupid fanboys around here asking things like!

Where is bridget?

Where is jam?

Come on guys dont be so darn stupid. This is a loke test is still in development this aint the final roster. So stop with this dumb question or exclamtions.

drez1210 said on August 9, 2013 at 1:57 p.m.

POTEMKIN!!!!!!!!!!

#36
Wachenroder said on August 9, 2013 at 5:14 p.m.

This looks sooooo damn crisp. Wish Capcom had done something closer to this with SF4.

#37
juanrock said on August 9, 2013 at 6:40 p.m.

after all the disapointments from capcom is really nice to be hyped for a fighting game, cant wait to buy it 4 diferent times!!!

#38
Yung said on August 9, 2013 at 8:24 p.m.

Potemkin still looks dumb to me. Still, can't wait to see more of this game.

#39
TagAnarchy said on August 9, 2013 at 8:56 p.m.

This is going to be a small cast if the character select stays like this unless the portraits are moved. I wonder who will make the cast. I'm personally hoping That Man finally makes a playable appearance.

#40
jelaninoel said on August 9, 2013 at 11:04 p.m.

Darkstalkers NEEEEEDS to look like this! Hell every fighter needs to look like this. This is the only acceptable way to display a genre known for 2D sprites in 3D

#41
TagAnarchy said on August 10, 2013 at 8:14 a.m.

^Agreed^

Make sure you guys also read the Shoryuken impressions list that a couple other commenters mentioned ---->

http://shoryuken.com/2013/08/10/guilt...

Chipp's new wall cling sounds really fun to play with, especially after a deep alpha blade. Want more video..!!
