Japanese developer Arc System Works has confirmed to NowGamer that producer Daisuke Ishiwatari intends to developer a new Guilty Gear game for the PS3 and Xbox 360
I don't think it's a good idea either to do a crossover between BlazBlue and Guilty Gear. I love both universes but obviously some BlazBlue are almost duplicates of Guilty Gear (Ragna = Sol BadGuy, Jin = Ky Kyske, Iron Tagger = Potemkin, Rachel = Slayer, etc...). They don't have an identical fighting style but they are very similar. However, a new 2D Guilty Gear on Xbox 360 / PS3 would be awesome (let's forget about how pathetic was Overture), even if I though they didn't had the rights to develop Guilty Gear games anymore (which is why they developed the spiritual sequel BlazBlue).
i think blazblue more intresting than guilty gear . i had a hard time liking GG but for blazblue it was almost instantanious. Blazblue is a good franchise , we haven't even seen most of it ( there is plenty of story to tell and characters to introduce ) so please the time for cross over is NOT for now For the reason stated up there i'm waiting for continium shift and i really don't care for another GG
Strange, how can we like BB but not GG? It's pretty much the same, the background is a bit different but globally it's the same (and that's what I love with BB).
sure there are plenty of similitudes ( same framework for example ) barrier for reducing damage .. ect ect BUt for me BB seems more polished ? almost like they learned from GG .. ANd the BB saga is cool ( the really love that background ) and the amount of polish they used in the first game ( so many things to do ). ALSO HAKUMEI....
I wish they would do Hokuto no Ken crossover Ken vs Ragna, Rei vs Jin, Tager vs Raoh
Working on Guilty Gear is stupid IMO. They should just focus on BlazBlue, it's WAY better. Either way, I'm still very interested in this game.
@Sangria Plenty guilty gear fans dislike blazblue because they feel it's a more polished but oversimplified version of the game , and for startes at an obviously slower pace . And likewise , people didnt enjoy Guilty and love Blazlbue because of the gameplay , characters , and story . Also unlike what you said , the characters of both franchises are hardly that close and similar . Some fill some template , like ragna/jin as the rival duo of "heroes" that were Sol and Ky ... and especially because Jin ressemble ky a bit . But that's pretty much it , they are entirely different characters . Most of all they are still different enough in gameplay for people to dislike one or another . Aside from he obvious similar artstyle , music and presentation , Blazeblue is more reminiscent of Arc's take of a game like Arcana Hearts imo , than Guilty gears .

There couldn't really be a crossover because one of the defining characteristics of ArcSys fighters is that the subsystems they have (burst, faultless defense and what have you) are very unique, very series-specific and the characters are designed around them. Several of the abilities characters in Guilty Gear have would be broken in any other game - they are only fair because Guilty Gear's systems make them so. A cross-over would require a complete overhaul of one or both casts of characters to the point where they don't play like they should.
Fantastic news. Next to Blazblue, the Guilty Gear games are what beautiful 2D fighting is all about.
"next-gen" Guys... it's been 4 years already. When will you stop saying that?
Probably never since the next generation of consoles will be out in a few years.
Agreed. This is not 'Next-Gen'. It's current gen.
Sammy took the rights of the game from Arcsys, why bother with making another one making Sammy money when they can focus on another Blazblue and make MORE money? I'd understand it if Arcsys still had the rights to Guilty Gear, but they don't so why help fill someone elses coffers?
Everyone is gay for Bridget.
Has any one played battle fantasia on ps3 or 360. It's a really good 2d fighting game made by the same people of GG/BB. Shame tho no one plays it online.
I always seen that game on Gamestop sitting at the shelves and always wondered what it was. Interesting ...
Not yet but I bought it two days ago on the US PSstore (I'm just waiting for finishing all the games I'm playing before starting other ones).
I've played the demo from the HK PSN store, and I gotta admit I enjoyed it a lot, I'm thinking of buying the full game(on PSN) one day when I have some extra money to burn.
They need to work on another Blazblue. I never liked the Guilty Gear franchise. I just never really enjoyed any of the characters of their backgrounds. Blazblue has loads of interesting looking characters with very intriguing stories.
they already working on a new blazblue its called blazblue continuum shift. It has 2 new characters its already in japan arcades just dont know when its coming to consoles.
It is a good fighting game, You can pick it up cheap on disc. I paid £9 from symths toy store in the uk.
The PS3 and 360 are NOT next-gen at all. At first I thought it was going to be on the NextBox2 or the PS4.
PS3 and X360 are current-gen. PS4 and Xbox 3 are next-gen.
and do the cross up with Blaz Blue.
