    New Guilty Gear coming 2020

    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.
  2. Hey man! I think I used to see you around the Tsubaki Yayoi forums during late CS2/early CSE back in the day.

    How have you been? It's a shame that Dustloop is now a ghost town. :(

    Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Event

    Dengeki reported on an anniversary event ASW held on the series' history, and there are some interesting bits of trivia here. -The password to unlock Testament and Dizzy in the arcade version of X was "misosoup," apparently because a programmer working on the game was overheard saying, "Now I want to drink some miso soup…" -The development team was casual with how their naming at the time, to the extent that one of the ideas of what to call what became roman cancels was "cosmetic galaxy." -There was a question about Fanny from GG Petit, but Ishiwatari says he can't answer anything about her because he wasn't involved in her creation. -Advance had a unique move for Venom that Ishiwatari meant to hide, but it somehow made it into the game. -Not everyone who worked on XX knew that Bridget was a boy, which led to a shocked exclamation from a designer. -When the topic of the series' bosses being women came up, it was mentioned that Leopoldon's gender is unknown, but Ishiwatari says that he thinks the dog piloting it may have been female, thus keeping this tradition unbroken. -Leopoldon's designer did the effects for Jam's new super in Xrd. -Overture's total development time was five years, so Ishiwatari says he has a lot of memories about it. -The name of Overture's genre, melee action, has a double meaning; the "melee" part is homonymous with the Japanese word 命令/meirei, which refers to orders, like the ones you give to servants in the game. -Ishiwatari was fixated on how roman cancels could be changed in Xrd, and Pachi recalls racking his mind over the suggestion that they be possible at any time, even during a downed state. -One idea that was tested during Xrd's development was being able to roman cancel KOs, but this caused a bug among certain characters where they'd just fall right after getting up following the RC. -Bridget was #1 on the Revelator poll to decide the next playable character until the very last day, when Dizzy got a sudden boost. -The staff had specific ideas for other characters in the poll, such as Izuna dashing rather than having a regular walk (like in Cross Tag Battle). -One of Haehyun's attendants actually debuted in the Korean version of #Reload, having been added to one of the stages. Ishiwatari also says that Xrd is probably finished as of Rev 2, and maybe hints that work has already started on the next real sequel.

    If ASW had to cut returners from the next Xrd

    All Answer proves is that story relevance isn't the only factor, which has been true since Sign (where Axl and Potemkin, for example, weren't terribly relevant). If it didn't matter at all, though, Jack-O probably would never have been added.

    If ASW had to cut returners from the next Xrd

    Ishiwatari said in one interview that story relevance actually does play a role in who gets added to the roster, I think even mentioning that as a reason Bedman made it into Sign over a returning character.

    [CF] Blazblue CENTRAL FICTION: News and Gameplay Discussion

    The official BB Twitter account says that the console version will get a balance patch and Jubei DLC "soon."

    [CF] Blazblue CENTRAL FICTION: News and Gameplay Discussion

    Pretty much; he specifically says there will be a new version and it will be out "very soon." Whether he means for arcades or console isn't clear, though.

    Guilty Gear Xrd Story Thread

    It was announced during an ASW event that After Story would be three parts, so there will indeed be one more.

    Trick question. They're detrimental to any game.

    New loketest on the 16th. It'll last about a week.

    BlazBlue: Remix Heart & Variable Heart Discussion

    Bringing up multiple worlds in a game that ends with a young Nine having let go of her grudge against her father can be easily inferred to mean that that game also doesn't take place in the main timeline.

    BlazBlue: Remix Heart & Variable Heart Discussion

    Sorry, I forgot to work in that Watashi and Imouto not being the same Nine and Celica in the main story seemed to be an implication from that exchange.

    BlazBlue: Remix Heart & Variable Heart Discussion

    Watashi's last exchange in LM is actually pretty clear about this. I don't remember it all that well, but I do remember her theorizing that Es is most likely not from the same world/timeline she is. As should've been obvious from Naoto's dialogue with Relius in his third arcade story, characters in different timelines can meet without events going the same way. As such, just as the Relius in the main BB story witnessed Naoto dying instead of surviving his fight with Clavis, Nine and Celica likely met Es in a way that didn't entail Nine getting over her grudge.

    [Xrd] News & Gameplay Discussion 2 - Console is Out!

    All three of them were fine after the EVO patch, it's apparently just common for people to confuse "top tiers getting nerfed" with "welcome the new low tiers". Was she? I saw Kazuki tweet about her j.H change reminding him of Slash and saying that she was still top tier in that one.

    You say when she actually turned out not to be that bad off after the last couple of updates, and these changes are hardly unreasonable. That being said, as always, it's important to remember that loketests tend to have changes that don't stick, so people shouldn't get too excited/upset/ecstatic/despair-filled just yet.
