Siliconera: Guilty Gear 2 is a serious departure from the series. Instead of being a vibrant 2D fighter, Guilty Gear 2 is a 3D tactical action game. The change was so great it made some fans wonder what Arc System Works was thinking when they were developing it. Fortunately we were able to speak with Daisuke Ishiwatari, the Creator of Guilty Gear series, to find out why. We also pulled Michael Manzanares, Producer at Aksys Games, aside to discuss the game's system and differences from the Japanese release.
