Earlier in the year PQube Games, in partnership with development studio Arc System Works, announced that an ‘Anniversary Pack’ which celebrates the Guilty Gear franchise would be released onto the Nintendo Switch and today the publisher have revealed additional details including a Rice Digital Exclusive Limited Edition.

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 charactersthat kicked off an incredibly complex and epic anime story will equally fascinate fighting game fans today, as it did 20 years ago!


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.

Day One Edition:

A Day One physical edition will also be released for the Nintendo Switch which contains a physical copy of the game, a personal letter from the creator of Guilty Gear and an art  book featuring artwork from the franchise.
