Arc System Works and PQube have shared more details surrounding the releases of both Guilty Gear and Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R on Switch, revealing that they'll actually be available together as part of a very special bundle.
Launching this spring, both the original Guilty Gear and XX Accent Core Plus R - the latest updated version of Guilty Gear X2 - will arrive in one tasty fighting bundle - the Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Edition for Nintendo Switch. You'll also be able to pick up both separately as digital versions if you prefer.
We've gathered each game's description and a couple of screenshots from today's press release for you below:
"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!"
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R
"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."
As noted above, the games arrive on Switch this spring, although no exact date or pricing has been given just yet.
