2013 is both the 25th year of operation for game developer Arc System Works and the 15th anniversary of its popular fighting game series Guilty Gear. Today, at the 25th anniversary celebratory event ARC SYSTEM WORKS FESTIVAL, the developer unveiled that the Guilty Gear series would finally be receiving an all-new fighting game title, GUILTY GEAR Xrd -SIGN-. Below is the first trailer for the game, showcasing a fierce battle between the eternal rivals Sol Badguy and Ky Kiske and the new visual style of the game. The end of the trailer teases two other series trademark characters and rivals, Millia Rage and Eddie.
GUILTY GEAR Xrd -SIGN- is the first fighting entry in the series to use 3D models. The game runs on SEGA’s RINGEDGE2 / ALL.Net P-ras MULTI Ver.2 system. Daisuke Ishiwatari, mastermind of the Guilty Gear series, is once again taking charge as general director.
