lol, what? But seriously, it's apparently the vocalist from a JP metal band called Outrage.

And hopefully there will be console exclusive charas (Baiken) later in the year.

I thought I was hearing Guilty Gear getting back to its musical roots in the trailer but then the lyrics (?!!!) started and the musical quality dropped away from GG standards. I'll grant that it was better than the awful pop song that was used for BlazBlue but the soundtrack is one of the most important parts of Guilty Gear.

I'm not sure how I feel about the wonky "plot" or the new art. Some of the best characters in the franchise weren't in this trailer Sad

Hopefully the PS4 version is a sign that a quick port to the PC will happen. I'm concerned that the PS3 version will hold the game back, that it'll be a low-res 720 game instead of a 1920*1080-or-higher, Full HD game, since there were precious few Full HD games on PS3.

But Faust and May were right there.

The arcade hardware is the Sega RingEdge 2 while the graphics are made with the Unreal Engine 3.

Been getting interested in this game for a while. Intro and theme left something to be desired but this series has a track record of having awesome music. Didn't see any indication anywhere that Ishiwatari composed any of it, I'm still hopeful regardless.

According to OVERTURE, she's "frozen" so she can't do anything. Don't quote me on that since I never played OVERTURE.

He did do the opening song. And it would be a travesty if he didn't compose the music for this game.

The PS3 version will probably be very similar to the original arcade version which is 720p. I imagine the PS4 version will up the resolution and AA since it's quite a bit more powerful than ring edge 2.
