Arc System Works has rolled out a new promotional trailer for Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator-, the next outing in the Unreal Engine 4-powered fighting game series, revealing a handful of brand new characters joining the roster, including some old fan-favorites.
The trailer is a rocket-busting thrill ride, clocking in at just under two minutes and featuring anime-style cinematics that are rendered in 3D. The art direction for the Xrd games really is just top notch, and the fact that it looks and plays like it’s in 2D just makes it that much better. You can check it out in the trailer below.

Out of all the fighting games to come out this gen, Guilty Gear Xrd is the one that not only manages to stay true to its original 2D roots, but also evolve the core mechanics to meet the standards of eighth-gen gaming. It’s very rare that a series is able to achieve that level of continuity but Arc System Works managed to pull it off and gamers are loving them for it.
We find out that characters like I-No are back, along with Dizzy, Johnny and Jack-O. There’s also the standard returning characters, each bringing their trademark moves and signature looks with them.
One of the things that shocks me is the fact that this game is still coming to the PS3. I would have imagined that the decade old console would have been too old and decrepit to run a title like this at a reasonable frame-rate, but with some sleek optimization and fine-tuned scaling of the special effects, I suppose they can make it work.
Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- is due for release on May 26th, 2016. The game is already receiving a lot of high praise and strong positive feedback from gamers the world around. Arc System should be happy with the results.
