E3 2014: Guilty Gear Xrd followup releasing holiday season

Although the long-awaited followup to the Guilty Gear series, Guilty Gear Xrd has been released on Japanese arcades since February, the developers finally announced the release for PS3 and PS4 this holiday season.

The jury is still out on how to pronounce the game’s subtitle, and the developer said “exerd” is not the right way.

The anime-style fighting game has a prolific list of titles to its series, spawning the popular spinoff BlazBlue, and it is coming back with the same endearingly poor translations and fast-paced combat.

For fans of fighting series, getting this game is an afterthought. The only question left is: Heaven or Hell?
