Guilty Gear 2 in September

505 Games press release:


Milton Keynes, 3rd July 2009 – 505 Games has today announced the release of Guilty Gear 2: Overture exclusively for Xbox 360. The latest in the popular series launches on 4th September 2009 and will take fans in a bold new direction, borrowing elements from genres outside of the traditional one-on-one fighting action for which Guilty Gear has become famed.

Guilty Gear 2: Overture developer Arc System Works has blended action and real time strategy for their latest instalment, and for the first time have introduced 3D graphics to its most popular and enduring series. As well as taking control of their chosen character, players will command legions of loyal followers to crush all in their path. Battles are won and lost by destruction of opponents’ strongholds, known as ‘Masterghosts’ and by successfully defending one’s own from enemy attack. Effective and tactical use of support troops, or ‘servants’, to achieve these aims as well as sharp fighting technique are the keys to victory.

Offering a full single player campaign, four way multiplayer over Xbox LIVE! or two player local multiplayer, Guilty Gear 2: Overture will also feature 50 unique units designed by famed series artist Daisuke Ishiwatari. Many familiar characters return to the game, including Sol Badguy, Ky Kiske and the mysterious That Man, all of whom have their signature special attacks recreated for the first time in glorious 3D.

Guilty Gear 2: Overture will be published exclusively for Xbox 360 on 4th September 2009 by 505 Games.

It's a bit of a graphical mess isnt it? not sure if its completely the games fault, seems to be some serious compression issues in the shots. Nevertheless i have no idea what im actually looking at.

I really love the GG unbiverse, but tbh i think this looks pretty crappy. As usual i wonder how much the series father, Daisuke Ishiwatari, is really involved with this.

I have the japan version, it is not a fight game, it's a beam't em up like Dinasty Warriors with a lot of scenes and text. I think it could be a great game for GG fans and gamers who likes japan stories.

The only reasonable question to ask here is what the f**k is this s**t.

The Guilty Gear name is getting dragged through the mud big time.

Some character design it's look homosexual. I don't like this style. They are should be make a 3D fighting game.

Strange. I just picked up BlazBlue as was looking forward to what Arc might do with the sequel to GG. Doesn't look all that inspiring at this moment, but I think Arc might be able to do to the Dynasty Warriors-style game what they did for the 2D fighter....make a very deep game that is easy to pick up and play as well

Well, they did try something different this time. That being said, why not just skip GG2 and release Blazblue instead, 505?
