Arc System Works and PQube have announced Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Edition, a physical bundle that includes the original Guilty Gear as well as Guilty Gear XX Λcent Core Plus R, for Nintendo Switch. Both games will also be available as separate digital versions, and Guilty Gear will also release for PS4.

Here's a brief description of each game:

Guilty Gear

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 Λccent Core Plus R

First released in 2008 in Japan, Guilty Gear XX Λccent 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 Edition releases this Spring.
