Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- will run on Unreal Engine 3

Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- will run on Unreal Engine 3 Earlier last week Arc System Works revealed that a brand new Guilty Gear fighter called Xrd -SIGN- is currently in development. Unlike previous installments of the Guilty Gear franchise, Xrd -SIGN- will abandon the classic sprites and feature 3D character models instead.

Taka Kawasaki, territory manager of Epic Games Japan, recently confirmed that the game will run on the Unreal Engine 3. Below is a statement from Kawasaki on Arc System Works' incorporation of Unreal Engine 3 into their upcoming Guilty Gear title.

I have been a big fan of the 'Guilty Gear' series for a long time. Its marriage of smooth, beautiful 2D animation with deep gameplay has been a pinnacle of the 2D fighting genre.

Arc System Works has taken Unreal Engine 3 to new artistic and technical heights with this new game, which shows the range of the engine’s capabilities. I am thrilled to see how the chemistry of 'Guilty Gear' and Unreal Engine 3 will entertain fans all over the world.

This won't be the first time we see a fighting game operating on Unreal Engine 3 as NeatherRealm Studios' own Injustice: Gods Among Us runs on it as well. Epic's graphics engine is quite powerful and has also been featured in such blockbuster titles as Batman: Arkham City and Bioshock Infinite.

Aksys Games to announce two new titles at E3

Aksys Games to announce two new titles at E3 Aksys Games, known largely for their localization efforts, are set to announce two new titles at this year's E3. So why should the fighting community care? Well, Aksys also have a history of localizing the games developed by Arc System Works, namely Guilty Gear and BlazBlue.

A new Guilty Gear was announced just a few days ago, but there was no word on a release outside of Japan, making it a prime suspect as one of these E3 reveals.

Another title that has yet to be announced outside of Japan is the upcoming BlazBlue: Chronophantasma. While it might be wise to not expect both of these titles to be announced at the same time for an overseas release, it would seem highly likely that at least one of them will be coming our way, perhaps even sooner than expected.

So if you had your choice, which of these two titles would you want to see confirmed for a stateside release? Or maybe you have something completely different in mind? Let us know in the comments.

Kars and Rohan Kishibe unveiled for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

In the latest issue of the Japanese magazine V-Jump, we've gotten two new character reveals for the upcoming JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle. The first one is Kars, the main villain of the series' second part, Battle Tendency. Kars is the leader of the so-called "Pillar Men", the main antagonists of Battle Tendency, and his cohorts Wham and ACDC have already been shown to be in the game, so his inclusion wasn't much of a surprise.

Referred to in the series as "the ultimate life form", Kars brings a whole arsenal of moves with him and is an inclusion that, albeit not very surprising, has been anticipated by many a fan. You'll find the scan featuring him right below, with thanks to Arlong Park for the high-quality scan.

Hit the jump for the scan and details surrounding Rohan Kishibe, and the new gameplay details the scans brough with them.
