Top notch animation as always from Arc. I like the redesigns and the new character too.
I hope it's not too "cinematic". I feel like DBFZ is already going too far in that direction.

The animation looks fantastic, looks a lot crazier than the already nuts XRD. Sold.
My only reservation is that I still get mileage out of Xrd Rev2 even two years later and it's a safe bet that this will be a roster reset instead of an addition to the Rev2 roster.

Oh well. GG is my favorite fighting game franchise. I'm there Day One. Hoping that some of the characters omitted from Xrd (like Zappa, Testament, and Robo Ky) make a return. Since Rev2 was a genuine conclusion to the arc, I'm curious where they'll take the lore next.

Day one!
For some reason I always thought there would be one more game in the current guilty gear series but I guess I was wrong. I’m guessing this will be a cross-gen title.

Omg that animation. It's beautiful. Dragonball Fighterz level of beautiful. Getting. Sold. Now.
Just a reminder that Guilty Gear Xrd had it too. Graphics look better though.

Overall, great teaser trailer. I'm always excited for Guilty Gear. Awesome gameplay, characters and music.

You know if they never released DBFZ 2 and simply kept releasing updates for DBFZ, I would have been fine with that....

...But after seeing this, if they continue evolving the graphics, I wouldn't mind upgrading to DBFZ 2 if it's more than simply characters/stages/mechanics update.

Meh after their last two games I'm gonna wait. Dizzy took forever to come out and then you had to pay for her again in the "GOTY" version. So tired of this shit.

Great choice for the animation over the choppiness of the last one. It was so unappealing and jarring in comparison with the visuals. The sound design will still probably annoy the hell out of me, but it may end up getting purchased.

Same, I was hoping for just a few more returning characters to show up in Xrd to round out the roster, but I guess my hopes will now be pinned on this one.

Good for me, but probably not good for the game's fans.

I mean, I like the change, but I think it's a good thing there's (or there was) a game that fills that niche.
You know it has a mode for kids called stylish right?

Depends on how they simplify.

Xrd was simplified compared to Accent Core Plus in quite a few ways but I only heard a bit of complaining around when -Sign- first launched. By the time Revelator came out, no one was beating the "simplified" war drum, yet that was the game which added 'Stylish mode' to the franchise like SLoWMoTIoN SLoWMoTIoN said.

Guilty Gear doesn't revolve around long combo chains, either, so unless chains get longer and the overall gameplay gets slower, I'm not too worried about simplification.

Hyped for this game.

even though secretly I was hoping for a One Piece or JoJo announcement.

Awesome. I kinda wish there was an ultimate version of Guilty Gear Xrd by now. Accent Core Plus R is for the 2D series. I don't mind buying a new one. I just hope it last longer. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing right? I own Xrd and Rev 2. I sat out on Rev 1 just because Rev 2 was announced shortly thereafter. The animations look great. I mainly use Sol, so seeing him in action is awesome. I also use Testament, so I hope he gets added to this (finally).

Arc System is fuckn monster as a developer. Holy shit.

DBZ, Granblue VS, Blazblue Crosstag, Guilty Gear and even a new Persona fighting should be in development. It's insane how they became so efficient this gen

Wonder if this is a prequel or a sequel? Some perceptive GG nerds have pointed out that Sol's weapon says "Outrage MKII" which may have been turned into Sol's Xrd weapon "Junkyard Dog MKIII".

Also, Ky Kiske's sword shares some design similarities with Leo Whitefang's greatswords:

Just beautiful. Guilty Gear Xrd is my favourite fighter this gen.

I hope Capcom changes the art style of SFVI to something like this. Art style such as this encourages developers to go crazy with the moves and gameplay.

Man, Street Fighter V looks 2 generations behind this thing.

Maybe they wouldn't do it for the main series, but SF Alpha 4 would be the perfect opportunity...

Look great but I better wait if they're gonna implement a few revisions after that game and sell them almost at full price. I've dodged that bullet once ArcSys.

If only DOOM and DOOM: Eternal had music this good instead of that pseudo-dubstep BS that Mick Gordon calls a soundtrack.
Daisuke Ishiwatari is a god.

The early scene showing a bunch of (I assume) dead Gears indicates this takes place after the Crusades.



Possibly, this takes place in an alternative timeline/dimension and may feature I-No more prominently.

Nah, mainline Street Fighter is not anime. But, Street Fighter Alpha practically invented anime so yes I agree with DunDunDunpachi. Of course there has been no indication of a return of the Alpha series.

This game looks amazing. I wonder if they're just going to stick with "Guilty Gear" or is that is just a working title.

Most likely a working title. It was XX then XXX (Xrd), therefore expect something silly like Xth

It's just speculation. The updated designs of Ky and Sol could be a sign that this takes place many years after Xrd. Sol has sleeves and fewer belts. Is this a variant on his Order Sol outfit or something new entirely? Ky's Sacred Order of Holy Knights outfit is now just a jacket, and he has a brand-new sword, possibly indicating he isn't king anymore.

Can't wait to find out!

Looks great, I really like Ky's new look and the new character. Looks like we're getting stage transitions, which are fun and add a spicy effect to battles. I hope they don't start over with the roster again. I want additive!
