Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is one of the first fighting games using anime style graphics. During development, the team at Arc System Works wanted to look closely anime. Using 400 to 600 bones and Unreal Engine handling Cartesian X, Y and Z axes. Artist Junya Christopher Motomura wanted to “more dramatic perspective” far as character and super moves. Daisuke Ishiwatari wanted a smaller roster first. In different factors smaller roster meaning different roles in story mode.

What are my thoughts on Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2?
Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is no different from the other versions. The anime style makes up for the game. Very fluid and flashy effects that keep anime fans happy. Gameplay is still the same but new characters brought uniqueness. After playing Dragon Ball Fighter Z, I don’t think I might got back to this game. Arc System Works did an amazing job on presentation. My only complaint is story mode and
no engagement. All you have to do is watch and little fighting. Arc System Work is working on Kill la Kill I can’t wait for that. They know how to reach out to anime fans and hopefully gaming community does too. Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is what fan of the series is wanted. A new Guilty Gear is in development and probably be the last. Sol Badguy and Ky Kiske rivalry is still growing. Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is available for PlayStation 4 and Steam.
