'Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Edition' (Switch) Gets Dated, Extra Goodies - Trailer

Run it back with your main characters and friends from the 90s or discover where one of the best and mechanically richest fighting games descends from - at home and on the go!

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!

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.

Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack will release on May 17th as a special day-one edition, including:

  • a personal letter from Guilty Gear creator Daisuke Ishiwatari
  • an artbook with unreleased works of his

Finally, a limited edition (£79.99) of only 500 pieces in Europe has been announced that comes with the only Nintendo Switch pouch anime fighting game fans will ever need! PQube is partnering with RICE Digital (orders will be available from starting Friday, February 22, 2019) to bring this to the west and will have more details soon.

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 on May 17, 2019. Additionally, both games will be available as separate digital versions and Guilty Gear will release for PS4.
