The original Guilty Gear and Guilty Gear XX ΛCore Plus R reunite to celebrate 20 years of 2D anime action!
The original Guilty Gear as well as Guilty Gear XX ΛCore Plus R will physically release bundled up as the Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Edition for Nintendo Switch. Additionally, both games will be available as separate digital versions and Guilty Gear will release for PlayStation 4.
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, 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.
Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Edition releases in Spring 2019 for Nintendo Switch.
