I've only been gone since there hasn't been anything new to talk about. Not that this trailer gives us that much to chew on.

 

Art style has definitely shifted a bit, the animation looks a tad smoother and the camera moves a lot more freely, assuming that's not just for the trailer. Colors are more saturated, and they're making some use of depth of field.

 

Character models are similar to Xrd's, though surprisingly are redesigned and a bit higher fidelity. I honestly expected them to give us the GGX-to-GGXX treatment, just lifting the roster and stages and bringing them into UE4. I do hope they're just retouching the old models and not scrapping everything to start fresh, since it'd be a real shame to have to abandon a chunk of the Xrd roster. The new character looks fucking rad. Honestly it feels like we're really living in the era of Woolie bait.

 

Not really much else to say. Only some brief glimpses of gameplay; they've added some FighterZ-esque stage transitions, in which you can "break" the corners of the stages, which should have some implications in terms of corner combos.

 

Still only has a working title (NEW GUILTY GEAR), and none of the Japanese articles reporting on the game have any real details beyond what Arcsy has already shared.

I guess I could pitch a title of my own: GUILTY GEAR deXth (ギルティギア デクス, Giruti Gia Dekusu). Combining Death (ス, desu) with X (ゼス, zekusu) and 4th (フォーfōsu), while simultaneously referencing the fact that in Japanese, "four" (四, shi) and "death" (死, shi) are homophones.

 

Edit: While I'm thinking of it, Ishiwatari did show up on Saturday as the guest for the Arc System Works live drawing panel, with Ono, Harada, Mori, and Higuchi. There were no reveals, but some fun questions, and Ishiwatari did some quick illustrations of characters requested by the audience (Dizzy with E-Honda, Morrigan, Celica).

Yay, I told you we would get an announcement by the end of EVO.

 

I just hope they don't add some autocombo bullshit to make it more accessible, because some stuff in that trailer is suspicous.

Models look really detailed now. I guess they are using the skeleton of the Xrd models but they really put a lot of work in them. I hope this doesn't mean we are starting with a small selection of characters.

I hope they figured a way to make alternative costumes but previously they said it was a lot of work.

Considering how much they've done with 3D since vanilla Xrd, even a bump in visual fidelity like this may not preclude them from limiting the roster at first. As for costumes, that would probably depend on whether or not they're still doing the animations by hand.

A big chunk of the improved fidelity can be chalked up to running at a higher resolution with different shaders. I'm sure the old models would look similar if they were ported over. Proportions are all about the same. They use a scalable vector technique for most of the "lineart" on the body and the decal textures don't seem to be higher resolution than those in Xrd. The biggest difference I can see in terms of polycount is probably in the hair.

Sol's changed stances completely for the first time in the series, though. That doesn't necessarily require new hitboxes, but it probably means his animations are almost, if not entirely, new. It's hard to tell if the same is true for Ky, but with such a drastic redesign he probably requires significant tweaking either way.

I'd certainly love to see the entire cast get the same treatment, but I'm not sure I'd take it over keeping the entire Xrd roster. Even if it means some characters don't get a visual upgrade, I'd rather everyone be in here than only some of them with redesigns.

Well they found a way to make the already pretty game look even prettier.

Stoked for a new Guilty Gear regardless.

Ok have to try and predict the final roster. 

My Roster = Sol, Ky, Elphelt, Millia, Axle, Leo, Baiken, Potemkin, Raven, Zato, Jam, May Faust, Slayer, New1, New2.

16 Chars in total. A bit optimistic if anything but that's what the gut tells me.

One thing I noticed is that Sol's weapon are not Junkyard dog Mk.III anymore, it become Outrage Mk.II now. It seems that Sol redesigned Outrage though.
Things(Story) might change a lot in new GG, like Sol needs Outrage Mk.II to control his power because the erosion of Dragon Install got worse. Also means that Sol might have new D.I design?

Millia might become the leader of Assassins, according what she said in rev2. Venom is a baker we already knew. Jack-O is Aria now, so Sol won't let her join the battle.

Asuka surrendered to America in rev2 change the international situation, Raven has his own thing to finish, and Ino apparently has a new plan. etc

God I wanna play new GG so much.

The game is going to be playable in the Arc Revo American finals in November, makes you wonder if they will start doing loke tests in December or January, or maybe is just a treat for the tournament, and they are still far from starting the loke tests.
