Fans of the Guilty Gear games are in for a treat as Arc System Works and PQube have unveiled the Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Edition for Nintendo Switch. The package includes Guilty Gear and Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R. If you aren’t after both then you can purchase them separately on the Nintendo Switch eShop. It is out this spring.
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 Accent Core Plus R
First released in 2008 in Japan, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core 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.
