Arc System Works has just released a lengthy trailer for the next installment in the Guilty Gear series of fighting games, Guilty Gear Xrd –Sign-.

Arc System Works has just shown the second official trailer for Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- at the recent Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia (SCEJA) press conference, which was held last September 9th, 2013.

Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- is notable for running on the Unreal Engine, which is commonly used for 3D games (as it is originally for a 3D FPS), while actually looking as 2D as its predecessors albeit with much higher resolution and with 3D panning cameras in some scenes. In fact, if you just look at the trailer, you can be forgiven for mistaking it as 2D animated FMV instead of in-game footage. You can check out the video below:
