Guilty Gear Going Next-Gen Soon?
If you ask any avid fighting fan about their favorite franchises, don't be surprised if the name "Guilty Gear" pops up. The hardcore aficionados consistently flock to this series to get their super-fast combat fix and thankfully, it seems another entry is headed to the PlayStation 3.
According to Now Gamer, series creator Daisuke Ishiwatari has revealed that developer Arc System Works are currently planning to bring a new Guilty Gear iteration to the PS3 and Xbox 360. "What we can say about Guilty Gear is that it is not dead yet," said Arc System's Tomo Ohno. Ishiwatari added, "I have the full intention to create Guilty Gear for PS3 and 360." Oddly enough, we do recall when Arc System Works lost the rights to this franchise to Sega but evidently, they've managed to come to some sort of agreement. Beyond that, we don't have much in the way of official details, although we're certain the fans will quickly chime in with suggestions. What would you like to see in the next Guilty Gear? It's a little surprising to see such a resurgence of old-school fighting games in a generation committed to pushing the technical envelope; the likes of Street Fighter IV and BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger really impressed the hell out of critics in 2009. It only proves that classic concepts never really die.
We'll let you know when they feel like producing an announcement that will make all the fighting fans smile with anticipation. Until then, keep looking forward to Super Street Fighter IV.
