Why this on turtle speed?

New GG will be bad as BB and all of the GG-players(7 persons, actually) will hate this game too?

Interested in this, not much of a BlazBlue fan but Persona 4 Arena is fun, i'll be interested to try GG for the first time on this version.

Let's just hope this is an actual fighter and not a side scrolling beat'em up. I'm watching you, ASW.

Overrated Gear Xrd.
Seriously, what does the Xrd mean?
GG is awesome, I grant that, but some people are just overreacting.

"In order to celebrate it's 25th anniversary"

Dammit! It's not in order to announce its 25th Anniversary. There is a 25th ArcFes and RevCup tournament going on right now, which had been announced a month ago, as well as last week and on Friday. http://ggxrd.com/
There are streams from Akiba on Nico http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv1372... as well as twitch.
EH needs to multitask faster. I know we aren't really ArcSys fans here yet, and ECT is taking our time. Tthanks for posting this.

This is awesome news. I cannot wait to play this. GG is by far my favourite fighter.

#18
ReddChief said on May 19, 2013 at 10:40 a.m.

The King of anime fighters is back been waiting for them to announce this over a year ago i knew Daisuke wouldnt lie to us and GG never used numbers so instead of GG 3 its GG Xrd

#19
Bboy_Izilla said on May 19, 2013 at 10:40 a.m.

So they didn't know a way around calling it "Guilty Gear XXX" so the alternative was to call it "Xrd?" ... way to go Japan.

SevenDaggers said on May 19, 2013 at 10:42 a.m.

I am hype, this is gonna be awesome! Gg is awesoome, Bb is awesome. Persona is awesome! This is gon be guud!

@27 My guess will be the next generation consoles, but it depends on how fast they work on it.

No problem SFlip, was just wondering why it took a while to get it up.
I submitted info about ArcFes ages ago, and I never aw it on my EH feed.
I thought maybe EH wasn't interested in it, which was weird to me, seeing as we have BB and P4U.

#39
ChipsLight said on May 19, 2013 at 11:09 a.m.

I'm ready to rock !
I'm kind of mixed about the new design and it feels a bit slower but I'm so hype !
Let's rock !

anyone noticed it seemed slower than usual. also i hope those camera gimmicks are the limit for new things cause usually thats the sign of a downhill spiral for most franchises.

Other than that i think. . . i think im ready. . .

BlackMasamune said on May 19, 2013 at 11:18 a.m.

Yay, another game EH can ignore in favor of what the "readers really want to hear about."

Kaguri Mutsuki and Yuki Terumi have been shown in action for the console version of ChronoPhantasma. This was shown after the Arc RevCup awards.
ChronoPhantasma will be released on 25th of October.

HooliganComboFTW said on May 19, 2013 at 11:22 a.m.

LOL this is like what happened to P4A, shorty after release that new BB game was teased killing its hype. Now when that new BB game comes out, this new GG game would suck that game dry.

Sweet this new GG game is looking great, but not liking Ky ponytail. There was a reason this game was considered the king of anime fighters. Just hope they don't try to make the game too similar to BB style with GG characters.

#51

Good to know Guilty Gear isn't dead. I've been waiting so long for this day to come.

Take some hard notes Capcom.

Looks awesome why do they call GG/BB/P4A Anime Fighters do they not play like KOF/SF or something?

#62
Tensa said on May 19, 2013 at 11:44 a.m.

OMG I want to play this game but it looks alittle slower than normal gg games but its in development..

#63
Dingofist said on May 19, 2013 at 11:45 a.m.

Looks horrible. Hopefully this is super super super early alpha build. Otherwise I'll stick to AC+R.

#64
gigantor21 said on May 19, 2013 at 11:46 a.m.

@63 - I never did get how that categorization worked. There are plenty of games actually based on anime that play nothing like GG or BlazBlue, while Marvel fits right in with them in terms of feel and mechanics. I'd buy it if it was more specific--i.e. ArcSys-style fighters or something.

This game looks beautifully done as far as graphics are concerned. I can't wait to see how Chipp looks though.

#67
BigFleccs said on May 19, 2013 at 11:56 a.m.

@63 they usually have light, med, heavy, super vs x number of kicks and punches like sf and kof.

Guilty Gear fans have been waiting too long, but this looks amazing.

Holy crap those models look like HD sprites. I like it. Not really a big fan of GG, but I'd love to see a GG vs BB crossover some day.

tortoos said on May 19, 2013 at 12:17 p.m.

Very visually appealing no doubt. Hopefully it'll be sped up a little. The speed is one of the things I like the most about guilty gear. Can't wait to see Slayer or Johnny. The only question now is how many years are we going to need to wait for this?

#78
zUkUu said on May 19, 2013 at 12:19 p.m.

FINALLY a true sequel! Looks very neat to say the least. But WHY IS KY A WOMAN NOW?! I don't get it.

So good,I don't even know what to say but damn... I want to play right now. FML NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#80
SnakeX said on May 19, 2013 at 12:27 p.m.

Wow, nice. It's about time we got a brand new GG!

When I saw that they were using the Unreal Engine I was worried that they had somehow turned it into a 3D game, but instead they're just using it to make the game look sexy. I dig it.

#81
TheTHCGamer said on May 19, 2013 at 12:28 p.m.

That looks sick and enough with the negativity. Fighting game big boys on the block better be scared because ASW looks like the could be taking another step forward in making themselves even bigger. Lets hope a European release doesnt take forever though.

It's about damn time. Have my monies, ASW. I'm not a huge fan of BB, but I was all about GG. Can't wait.

Haters gonna hate. Guess the trolls got tired of demeaning Injustice.

#87
Chryo said on May 19, 2013 at 12:44 p.m.

Cool, now you can get hype for this instead of asking for Annie in Skullgirls.

Anyway, I don't like anime games at all but I have to admit the transition to 3D models is VERY well done. The seemingly low framerate in the animations raised my eyebrow at first but it really emulates the old style well. It really kicks SFIV/xT's asses from a technical standpoint.

#88
Rye_Aka_SekaiSenshi said on May 19, 2013 at 12:49 p.m.

I'm fuc*ing excited!!!! My favorite fighting game is back! Next to CVS2! Now all we need is a CVS2! Or just some more characters in this new Guilty Gear! I'm loving how the game looks! Was a big fan of this series, not really a fan of Blazblue. Hopefully they stick to how Guilty Gear is played and not go with Blazblue style.

#89
SMITUS said on May 19, 2013 at 12:56 p.m.

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!! :DDDD LET'S GO GUILTY GEAR!!!! Watched this trailer AT LEAST 10 times. So excited I could just EXPLODE!

drunkendan said on May 19, 2013 at 12:56 p.m.

Awesome a new Guilty Gear. Looks pretty good. Though Ky's really girlie ponytail annoys me(small nitpick I know) can't wait to see more

#91
orochi_kyo said on May 19, 2013 at 12:56 p.m.

Not really excited. Arc Systwm Works doenst know how to promove their franchises. May be this new GGXX just be another niche game for japan only on PS3, like the last blazblue.

#92
SquidBiskets said on May 19, 2013 at 1:09 p.m.

This NEEDS to be NEXT GEN, or it is already dead.

#93
NoizyChild said on May 19, 2013 at 1:13 p.m.

Never fails.

New game comes out, and within minutes, so do the Capcom comparisons.

Can't you people just be hyped for what you like without trying to bash on another game or company? Goodness.

#94
TheTHCGamer said on May 19, 2013 at 1:16 p.m.

@95 Are you kidding me its probably a worse idea to release it next gen if the game is coming out close to a year from now because current gen consoles have a higher install base. Look how well the PS2 was still selling the first two years PS3 and 360 were still on the market. Not all of us are going to be buying next gen consoles day one because we all know slim consoles will be out a few laters after the release of the next gen consoles.

I know i regret buying a few PS3's and 360's this gen. Currrent gen release for this game all the way. @96 Do you always defend CAPCOM? Says the one who always bashes Virtua Figher in every VF topic and ducks matches.

#95
DARKKARASBLADE said on May 19, 2013 at 1:21 p.m.

Eventhubs this is not the first GG game that uses 3d models this is the second 1.

#96
TheTHCGamer said on May 19, 2013 at 1:28 p.m.

@98 Yup your right and GG overature was complete garbage that should be forgotten. So yea lets pretend like this is the first GG game that uses 3D models.

#97
SpadeHand said on May 19, 2013 at 1:30 p.m.

Yyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssss

#98
Oroku_Saki said on May 19, 2013 at 1:30 p.m.

@#98 DarkKarasBlade:
This is the first Vs game. The other 3D game was an open world adventure slashing game, and not like this.
And unlike the BB games that have the characters first created and animated in 3D before being converted, this is going to be 3D all the way.

I'm so stoked, and waiting for more information about the development of this game.
This and the BBlue universeadventure RPG game; Xblaze Code: Embryo which comes out in July, have me excited.

#99
NoizyChild said on May 19, 2013 at 1:32 p.m.

#97

I said other GAMES and COMPANIES.

And saying that nobody plays VF isn't bashing it. That's stating a simple fact.

And considering I don't even own VF anymore, not sure what you're trying to say. But I can body you in Marvel or SFxT if you want. Hell, I'll even stomp you out in Injustice.
