GUILTY GEAR 20th Anniversary Edition Announced for Nintendo Switch

UK based publisher PQube Games, along with developers Arc System Works, have announced a brand new Nintendo Switch project known as Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Edition.

This anniversary project will combine the original GUILTY GEAR with GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE PLUS R for an anniversary celebration of the franchises long-standing history in japanese arcades and console fighting game communities across the globe.

GUILTY GEAR: In 1998, one game made huge waves within its genre: Guilty Gear for the original PlayStation. Spectacular special moves that brought the console to its limits, a hardrock soundtrack that still has to meet its match, innovative mechanics and unique characters that kicked off an incredibly complex and epic anime story will equally fascinate fighting game fans today, as it did 20 years ago!

GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE PLUS R: First released in 2008 in Japan, GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE PLUS R is the final installment and epitome of the Guilty Gear XX series that polished everything introduced in the 12 previous installments to reach optimal balance. Mechanics like the universal overhead attack “Dust” as well as “Roman Cancel”, which allows players to cancel all kinds of actions and therefore increases their options dramatically, set the bar for the series’ sequel: Guilty Gear Xrd.

That’s not all as both games will also be available to purchase digitally from the Nintendo eShop and GUILTY GEAR will also be made available to purchase as a digital download from the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 4.

A release date for these games has not yet been mentioned; but we can expect PQube Games to make further announcements in the coming months.
