I'm getting some more screens from the trailer.

Their bank balance would also be crying if they went for HD sprites, and I bet we wouldn't see this game for a long time off if they went in that direction.

I don't think a company like Arc would jump to next-gen so early.

It took them long enough.

This looks kinda like what I made a topic about a month or two ago - 3D pretending to be 2D, complete with choppier animation.
Looks decent.

I always thought it was possible to animate 3d models as if they were a sprite and get the same feel as a 2D fighting game.

Yes, the effect is incredibly well rendered!
I thought it was 2D at first.

Japan is weird... it could be "exerd" or "crosserd". They can't decide how they want to use X most of the time.

Finished watching now, and is that all 3D models? If so wow, they perfected the look of making 3D models look like sprites.

I did enjoy arc system fighting games, but they do fall victim to over bloated fighting mechanics.

Hopefully they get toned down on this.

I've never seen such 2D-looking 3D models. Honestly, I'm super impressed.

I mean seriously. It looks absolutely 2D but with the benefit of camera pans and such. They even emulate that sword drag effect, before now, I would have thought was a remnant of 2D animation.

How so? It looks perfectly manageable on current-gen platforms, it's just BlazBlue but without sprites.
