Arc System Works and PQube have announced that Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack will release for Nintendo Switch on May 17th, a collection that bundles the original Guilty Gear and Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R together.
News about the Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack Limited Edition for those in Europe is promised in the coming weeks. But, there will be also a special day-one edition that will include a personal letter from Guilty Gear creator Daisuke Ishiwatari and an artbook with his unreleased drawings.
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 hard rock 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.
Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide on May 17th.
