Guilty Gear Xrd Gets A New Trailer - It's A Work Of Art
Well damn, hats off to Arc System Works for elevating cell shading in 3D to heights it's never before reached. The latest trailer for Guilty Gear Xrd, the proper follow up to the popular fighting game franchise shows us just how damn impressive their Unreal engine powered visuals look. While we initially confused it for high end 2D sprite animation (Like the recent King Of Fighters entries) when the game was first announced, this latest trailer shows off the incredible shader work on the 3D models, which makes the models feel hand animated.
Instead of opting for a more 3D fighting game system (Like Tekken), the game will use a 2D plane that will move into 3D camera angles during special moves, kind of like Street Fighter IV, except this entry is going to look even slicker. I'm getting the feeling this franchise will be making a monster comeback in 2014 on PS3 and PS4.
