Arc System Works celebrated the first anniversary of Guilty Gear Strive during the game's Evo 2022 finals, confirming that the fantastic fighter has passed 1 million copies sold. Not bad, but do you know what's even better? The developer felt the need to spend some big bucks on a brilliantly animated anniversary video, which you can watch above.

It's over two minutes of pure Guilty Gear goodness, following the storyline of series protagonist Sol Badguy. That's his Guilty Gear Strive theme playing over the whole thing, too.

As far as gifts to a game's community go, this is pretty cool. And even if you aren't a Guilty Gear fan, surely you can still appreciate the slickness of this animation. Lovely stuff.
