Guilty Gear is a franchise that is more than 20 years old and has a cult fanbase who adore the franchise. The franchise is particularly beloved for its animation and soundtrack. The most recent entry in the franchise was Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- which released back in 2016. Our review of the game was incredibly positive, with us stating the following:
Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- is easily the king of fighting games released up to this point, at least in this generation. It’s not only accessible for new players but keeps the hardcore players satisfied as well. Arc System Works has outdone themselves with their fantastic art and animations.
Guilty Gear is set to launch in 2020.
