Sorry about the lack of stories for the past four days – it’s slowed down a bit. New games news almost never comes on a Sunday but for whatever reason Arc System Works decided to end the weekend/start the new week this way.
Fighting games still have plenty of traction in Japan (they would out West but are constantly undercut for various reasons we’ve gone into before) and for fans of the Guilty Gear series, this should prove interesting. Arc System Works has announced Guilty Gear Xrd Sign. The game will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the company and will be released through Sega’s ALL.Net+ Multi game download network, which runs on the Ringedge 2. This does mean no collectible board for now (although that could change depending upon demand I imagine). At the moment the trailer just mentions its in development but they have made the jump to 3D graphics, although the quality of the cel-shading and other graphics here is good enough to maintain a 2D feel to it. No release date yet but I am sure we will know before too long.
